Faith's Fetters Discussion

Thank you for the answers ProfessorTophat256. The main reason I was asking about Liliana of the Veil is the fact that you seem to not run enough possible answers to have four Gifts Ungiven targets even after sideboarding. I know the main plan is Unburial Rites, but tutoring for four answers is a great and very viable plan.
I understand you can just gifts for three answers and one other card, and likely get one answer to Liliana of the Veil, however since most decks that run her do run more than just one, this effectively dumps all your other answers in the yard. Running something along the lines of Faith's Fetters as well allows you to tutor for two universal answers with Gifts Ungiven.
Solid deck overall though, I might take it for a spin in some online games. Always have been looking to build some form of U-Tron, and this might just be it.

facepalm I supposed I should have expected my snark to bring Karmic Justice right back to me, eh? haha Give enough snark, you'll eventually get it back! XD Touche!
Running Auras with Sram and Spiritdancer would definitely help since you'd be able to trigger Mesa Enchantress as well since all Auras are Enchantments; and it looks like you've found most of the powerhouse Auras.
If you're looking for more lockdown Auras, I've always liked Prison Term, Suppression Bonds and Faith's Fetters since they take them out of combat AND turn off their activated abilities (plus the latter two can hit things other than creatures).
Sigarda's Aid can help your Auras gain Flash. While Authority of the Consuls gains you life and slows down opponent's using creatures (especially hasty ones). Path of Bravery can also be an Anthem effect and gains you life.

Eladamri's Call, Worldly Tutor, Recruiter of the Guard, Chord of Calling, and Sylvan Tutor are all good creature tutors that effectively you more enchantress effects. Also Eladamri's Call was reprinted recently, and so is quite cheap.
Burgeoning is very good. Run it.
Parallax Wave goes infinite with Opalescence and Starfield of Nyx (If you have enough non-aura enchantments), and let me explain how if you don't understand it, I was confused at first when I saw it so here:
Parallax Wave is an enchantment that starts with five fading counters, and at your upkeep you must remove a counter from it, if you can't you sacrifice it.
You may remove a counter from Parallax Wave whenever you want (at instant speed) to exile a creature, and when it leaves the battlefield, return all cards that enchantment has exiled to the battlefield. This includes itself if it is a creature.
If it is a creature you can remove a counter from it to exile an opponent's creature, then hold priority, and exile itself in response. The stack resolves top to bottom, so given no opponent reponds, you exile Parallax wave to itself, and it will leave the battlefield, returning all cards it has exile to the battlefield, before it exiles the opponent's creature. Parallax Wave returns, and their creature has an exile trigger on the stack, respond to that by repeating this process for each and every creature your opponents control, so that they all get exiled. If you have Opalescence in play, then you can exile all of their enchantments with this process too.
To this effect, from that point forward, your opponents will never land an enchantment or creature. You can also repeatedly "bounce" (retrigger the leave-the-battlefield and enter-the-battlefield effects of) all creatures you want. If you have Eternal Witness or Eidolon of Blossoms, you can draw infinitely, or return all cards that ever go to your graveyard to your hand. You might be scared that you would die from drawing infinitely, but you can draw until you reach Abundance, cast it, then keep drawing, always naming non-land. You also make infinite mana from Earthcraft by tapping the creatures between bounces. You bounce them by exiling them under Parallax Wave, then exiling Parallax Wave to itself, return both itself and your creature to the battlefield.
Enough about Parallax Wave, if I hadn't sold you, I never will.
Cards you can drop:
Craterhoof Behemoth - Beatdown isn't the best win condition for enchantress, it is a bit to aggressive for a deck that commonly doesn't have too many creatures. Ajani's Chosen/Sigil of the Empty Throne at least give fidder for Earthcraft mana and Aura Shards triggers.
Courser of Kruphix - Yeah it is a good creature, and it is an enchantment, but it isn't a good enchantment. It is lifegain for a deck that can do without, and a 2/4 blocker that gives life for three. That is good in modern occasionally, and insane in limited, but it isn't for commander unless you can abuse it. Sunbond/lifegain effects + Scapeshift/landfall effects make it decent.
Acidic Slime - 2/2 deathtouch is occasionally relevant, good with Parallax Wave combo for mass non-creature destruction, then the creatures get exiled by Parallax Wave, and is efficient, but if you don't get the Parallax Wave, then it doesn't do a ton.
Aura Shards - Without a ton or consistent supply of creatures, it does little but paints a target on your head.
Soul Snare/Faith's Fetters - They do little but waste mana on an overpriced and conditional Swords to Plowshares/Beast Within respectively. Their only redeemable factor it that they are enchantments, but that doesn't maek up for the fact that they aren't instants and aren't as powerful as other cards.
Cards to add:
Greater Auramancy - Great Enchantment Protection
I know said to add more than I said to drop, but below are some other cuts I'd consider:

Nice deck!I like your approach - you use most powerful cards in each color. Also i consider your work on categorization of cards.
There is few cards you may like to your "stax" theme:Rhystic Deluge can tap
Rishadan Cutpurse can force your opponents to sacrifice permanents and great with flickers
Escape Routes will bounce your Palace Guard when its about to dead or serch more auras with Heliod's Pilgrim
Righteous Aura is better then any circle of protection (i guess)
Detainment Spell better then Arrest and Faith's Fetters, because you have alot of prevent already, but this cheaper
Field Surgeon save your creatures from Pestilence or such
Soltari Visionary maybe fine, considering you have only 1 enchantment removal
Snuff Out better then Doom Blade because it can be played for
