Ixalan's Binding Discussion

You may also want to consider a few charge effects like Pride of Conquerors or Make a Stand - they can tip the balance of combat in your favor as a surprise when you're using a "go wide" strategy. With cheaper cards, Mentor of the Meek can be an option, and for removal, I recommend Cast Down in place of Fatal Push and Conclave Tribunal or Ixalan's Binding in place of Return to Dust .

This looks great but for enhancement removal you could add Sprouting Renewal , Broken Bond , or Crushing Canopy . The one problem I can see other than Ixalan's Binding is how to deal with wraths. I think that Disdainful Stroke would be good here but Negate also works.

Im a big fan of mid-rangey mono color tribal decks, but here is some advice if you want to make it work more consistently and be generally more successful even in a very casual table top setting:
Curve in modern is king!
If you look at the curve for your deck and the average CMC in general, its very very high and its going to take several turns to even start getting your big angels out. This is an issue because at most you will be playing one threat per turn, and by turn 4 your control opponent will have more than enough mana and cards to stop them from hitting the board, your aggro opponents will have killed you, and faster mid range decks will have set up the board to a point where you are behind the rest of the game.
Solutions: Splash green for ramp ( Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise ) or find more cards in the 1 and 3 slots that are defensive. Current build is desperate for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Defensive/tax/solid cards in white you can use would be stuff like Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thraben Inspector , Doomed Traveler , Student of Warfare .
Interacting with your opponent is key!
Currently the only removal you have in your deck is Ixalan's Binding , which costs a large amount of mana considering it only removes a single target. Lucky for us we are playing white and have alot of great removal. Path to Exile , Fragmentize , Oblivion Ring . If I was playing this deck, my biggest fear would be my opponent would play something like Ensnaring Bridge because i'd only have a 32% chance of drawing Ixalan's Binding by turn 5 and thats spooky!
Hope this helps. tl;dr is I'd lower the average CMC, add more removal and ways to interact with the opponent

you gonna need a few counters in your sideboard, because Ixalan's Binding destroys this deck
are some good ones

I like it! And suggest you play more kill spells like Go for the Throat, Path to Exile and the like. Things like Thoughtseize would also be great here. Stasis Snare looks good, but sometimes you want to remove other types of permanents, and white is the perfect color to do so. A simple Disenchant or a more ruthless Ixalan's Binding for instance would improve your perfomance against a wider range of decks imo. Lastly, more card draw like Phyrexian Arena, Sign in Blood, etc would not be bad I think

Ixalan's Binding is definitely a viable choice, but i feel like it lends itself more to midrange- or control-strategies.
In Boros you just end up with either a summoningsick creature, one you can't attack with because of blockers, and/or one with vigilance that can convoke postcombat so often in my experience, that Tribunal rarely costs 4 unless you want it to, which feels pretty relevant in a deck which curves out at 4. I can't imagine a lot of matches that get grindy enough for the Binding clause to really matter, and for those you could add them to the sideboard. Still, it comes down to preference and meta, both are fine cards imho.
