Ixalan's Binding Discussion

Looks like fun, Amonkhet Gods are pretty interesting!
A few cards look a bit underpowered to me, here they are: Take Vengeance, Luminous Bonds, Knight's Pledge, Ixalan's Binding (in commander), Aerial Modification, and Bishop's Soldier. I’ll do some research and get back with some suggestions!

I don't really think either that mutate needs stopping in EDH, it doesn't seem very strong. With that said, you can abuse the fact that mutate stacks are exiled together for some fun stuff:
(I don't think Duplicant works even though AFAIK the cards are exiled at the same time but I could be wrong.)

Check out Ixalan's Binding, and Cast Out. Sometimes ixilan's binding just wins games if they don't have enchantment removal. I love azorius decks and I've got a nasty one on my page called Baking of the Second Buns. Check it out if you want to really bring the law down. Cheap too.

My version of the deck has a lot of removal: Bonecrusher Giant, Chained to the Rocks, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Ixalan's Binding, Glorybringer, and Shatter the Sky. I haven’t had any issues with creature based match ups. As far as disruption I have tools in my sideboard to help out against control and combo. I’ve been having a lot of success with this deck online.

In my opinion this deck has too many Artifacts or Enchantments for the amount of Creature it is running. Oftentimes in testing I had nothing to attach to Equipment that was on the field. It just sat there, doing nothing.
In a deck Always Watching is a must.
Has this deck played successfully in any tournaments? If so, I must be missing something.

sergarrick, The main thing that Calix, Destiny's Hand gives us is card selection, rather than card draw. Wwe don't win the game because we drew more cards, we win because we draw more meaningful ones that answer the threats our opponent presents us with. The -3 is a nice catch-all, out of the removal that we have in the deck, only Cast Out hits everything. Baffling End only hits cmc 3 or less creatures, which hits a lot, but not everything. Prison Realm only hits creatures and planeswalkers, which is the majority of what we want to remove, hence it takes the slot over Banishing Light or Ixalan's Binding , but alas, it has limitations too. This is why I like Calix here. He may just be too slow, but I need to test him more to find out.
Destiny Spinner is one I'll definitely be testing in the sideboard when I get some time to. I could see Alseid of Life's Bounty being fine in the sideboard for enchantment hate, but it's unlikely I'll end up running it mainboard, because in the early game, I'm just looking for cost reducers and card draw to find my removal spells. People don't tend to play enchantment removal mainboard outside of UW Control running Cast Out (which we can just remove with out own copies), and GBx running Assassin's Trophy . The fact that Alseid is a permanent hurts it a lot. If it were a Gods Willing effect for creatures and enchantments, I'd be more interested
Rabid_Wombat, Are you implying that I copied your deck, or just looking for free traffic there by posting it here? Your build is very different to mine. You've gone down the route of running the land enchantments for ramp, with arguably too many copies of a lot of the core pieces of any enchantress deck.
If you want to give constructive feedback, please do. Just saying "mine is better" doesn't help anyone. If you think that the land enchantments fix problems that this deck has, explain why they do, and which cards I'm running that are worse. But for the love of God, don't just come and say I've copied your deck and that yours is better.

Helpful Gatherer ruling from Ixalan's Binding :
- If the exiled card has a different name in exile than it did on the battlefield, Ixalan’s Binding stops players from casting spells with the name of that card as it exists in exile. (2017-09-29)
Since Brisela "breaks up" into her component parts in exile, it's the names of those component parts that Ixalan's Binding restricts.
