Grasp of Fate Discussion

SynergyBuild, I made some adjustments. Windfall and Toxic Deluge added. I also included Detention Sphere, Oblivion Ring, Banishing Light and Grasp of Fate to remove any pesky nonland problems. I feel the adjustments will better suit the meta.
I didn’t add Swan Song because of a 2/2 flying blocker. Even though we could always decide to go around that and become unblockable, but it’s always best to hit hard and fast. Didn’t think I had enough blue to justify the addition of Force of Will. I usually don’t include Arcane Denial, too often in my decks, just because I hate that my opponent gets value from it. So I just stuck with plain, boring Counterspell.

Also consider Windfall, Timetwister, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Dismember, Into the Roil, Blink of an Eye, Toxic Deluge, Grasp of Fate, Dispel, Mindbreak Trap, Spell Pierce, Remand, or Silence, they are all great esper control cards, and different packages of them lead to a very strong control build, but should be tuned for your meta accordingly!
Good luck my friend!

Willing to run Grasp of Fate?

Satyr Enchanter is the new M19 enchantress, and it is really a good choice, I recommend it! +1 on the list, below I will give you some random suggestions!
Journey to Nowhere, Grasp of Fate, Seal Away, Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Detention Sphere, Stasis Snare, or Cast Out all ahve ups and downs, but are great at removing a hatepiece while going off, or any real threat on the field!
Cloudstone Curio - Cast an enchantment, bounce another, cycle between two cheap enchantments to draw a ton of cards, great card!
Words of Wind - Cast an enchantment, pay 1, cast trigger to draw off an enchantress, bounce another enchantment, rinse and repeat to bounce every permanent your opponents control, down to their lands!
Excited for the 23rd? A new Commander 2018 Bant Enchantment deck will be spoiled then! a new commander that synergizes with enchantments and doesn't cost 300 dollars like Angus Mackenzie? I hope so!

I have seen it said before, but I want to question your win-condition as a deck under the "Competitive Hub".
Bruna, Light of Alabaster is a very good "pub-stomp" commander. I am sure you can understand why, it is really good at pumping out damage once you deck has the ramp and enchantments to pull it off. Good card draw or tutoring allows you to pump it up with 2-3 enchantents that get it to one-shot opponents. That wins in three turns!
I think I should break that down just a bit. You need 2-3 cards additional to the commander, and for the sake of arguement, I will say 2. Battle Mastery + Corrupted Conscience for example, given you only have a few other 2 card "combos" with you commander, this one is the cheapest. All together it would cost mana, but your commander really makes that mana and a combat step uninterrupted. Honestly, winning with 2 cards additional to the commander that costs 6 mana outside of green isn't great, but given you can tutor them up well, which you can to some extent as the cards you need are aura enchantments and you are in white.
Truely, this is wrong though. Intuition and Three Dreams are one-card combos with your commander, sadly your commander can't cheat their costs, so if we take Intuition with Bruna, Light of Alabaster, it costs 9 mana, and it one-shots a player per turn.
Per turn is the issue though. A 3 turn win (killing one opponents a turn) leads to 6 turns your opponents have to answer an unprotected body (no hexproof nor any indestructible type effects). 6 turns is forever in cEDH, and since you run so much of your deck as useless enchantments (outside of combat win), it is simply not likely you can counter everything your opponents through at you.
This is why I question your win-condition.
The thing is, a control deck isn't just trying to win. It needs an absurd amount of card draw and cheap answers to stop every attempt at dropping a stax lock or combo finisher. Every Dark Confidant, Trinisphere, and Food Chain needs a Swords to Plowshares, Chain of Vapor, and Swan Song respectively. You don't have the luxury of running just 20 answers for the 20 threats in each opponents deck, you need 60 answers for the 20 threats in each of 3 of your opponents deck. 60 cards that are simply answers won't do the trick either, you are drawing one card a turn, your opponents (collectively) draw 3 a turn. EDH is a game that every player is at a statistical disadvantage.
So run multple answers in each card Grasp of Fate all the Dark Confidant, Trinisphere, and Food Chain all at once. Windfall a new hand of answers, Timetwister back your answers, and draw a new hand. Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Opt, Impulse, Serum Visions and cantrip your way to the right answers for the situation at hand.
You actually have what I would normally say is the next point, prematurely answering threats. Armageddon can wipe a hand out of the game, if your opponents can's cast the cards in their hands, they might as well not have it. Cataclysm is similar, for obvious reasons, and so is Ravages of War, a card I would greatly recommend.
To get more value out of these effects, you need another tutor like Personal Tutor is a great way to find a land-swipe effect, I also suggest better card draw like Timetwister, Time Spiral, Manifold Insights, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, etc.
Cheap answers like Chain of Vapor, Fragmentize, Mental Misstep, Delay, Mindbreak Trap, Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Into the Roil, Blink of an Eye, Grafdigger's Cage, and other such answers are the best thing to have a ton of. They are blowouts early-game, useful tempo boosts mid-game, and still relevent late game. Being able to have a card for every threat means spending more cards on ramping is unrealistic at best, but running a deck very low to the ground is incredibly useful, pretty much every cEDH control deck is either stax-hybrid control, or straight 1-2 mana answers, some sweepers, and 1-3 mana card draw.
To end all of this, I would recommend greatly changing this deck, or dropping the "Competitive" tag, it is misleading as-is.
I also want you to know, QKNARWHAL, that I mean no disrespect to you or your deck-building capabilities, I do not think that this deck is a bad deck, simply not competitive. A previous user, Podkomorka had showed similar thoughts to mine, yet did not explain them. Podkomorka also was not mentioned or responded to in further posts, which I hope will not be done to myself.
