Some others not mentioned yet:

They're creatures though, not sure if you were looking for those kinds of suggestions but if you're going for a theme where stuff comes back over and over, they sure are classics for that!

Also a personal favourite that will just never ever go away unless he's specifically targeted with Ixalan's Binding :

  • Squee, the Immortal - who is also legendary if you need another commander idea that comes back again and again and again lol (and if he's the commander, the command zone gets around Ixalan's Binding)

neotazman: In your example, Ixalan's Binding will affect all cards that share a name with the combined cards. The regular rules of the game do account for situations where a card has multiple names (I believe because of some cards that were printed in the Conspiracy sets):

201.2a Two or more objects have the same name if they have at least one name in common, even if one or more of those objects have additional names. An object with no name doesn't have the same name as any other object, including another object with no name.

In the future: If you have a question related to an old discussion thread, it's better to ask the question in a new post versus replying to the old discussion. With the way this area of the site is set up, making a reply doesn't push a topic to the top of the list, so that means only the people who are still subscribed to receive notifications about it will be aware of your reply.

This deck looks pretty good, and after reading the comments, you seem to have put a lot of work into it. I do have a intentionally lower-powered deck with a basic aristocrat strategy. A card I really do like there is Doomed Traveler ( Doomed Dissenter is similar). Sgt.Pickles mentioned free sacrifice outlets. A very good, but very underrated one is Spawning Pit . You can sacrifice creatures, sometimes even in response to a kill spell, and then get multiple new tokens later. As many of your creatures have 1 toughness, Skullclamp could be a great addition, as well. If you were to include any combination of these three, Death Baron and Asha's Favor are what I'd cut for them. For removal spells, Ixalan's Binding is fine, but bonesplinter and/or Vicious Offering are great spells that even fit your strategy.

I spoke to iamhikari:

Plan: Pivot towards aristocrats, lower the CMC, maybe more taxing. Though I think going more into the Monarch theme might be more fun/unique. We can try this first:

For starters:

-1 Beseech the Queen
-1 Deliver Unto Evil
-1 Wild Ricochet
-1 Call the Coppercoats
-1 Assemble the Legion

Mana fix and ramp:

-1 Worn Powerstone
-1 Gilded Lotus
+1 Exotic Orchard
+1 Talisman of Conviction
+1 Wayfarer's Bauble
+1 Talisman of Hierarchy ...can also +1
Talisman of Indulgence , but it's slightly pricier.

Expand reach and lower CMC of your removal:

-1 Return to Dust
-1 Terminate
-1 Comeuppance
+1 Chaos Warp
+1 Generous Gift ....alternatively there are some 2 mana removal cards in Strixhaven that might be fun to try out.
+1 either Path to Exile or the cheaper Dire Tactics
+1 Soul-Guide Lantern

Fun monarch theme and control: +1 Court of Grace
+1 Court of Ambition
-1 Black Market
-1 Ixalan's Binding

Pivot to Aristocrats:

-1 Neheb, the Eternal
-1 Thief of Blood
-1 Tectonic Giant
+1 Cruel Celebrant
+1 Syr Konrad, the Grim
+1 Bastion of Remembrance

Still need to deal with your creatures and maybe do some more token generation or something. I'll keep thinking and get back to you.

Oh yeah, Tuvasa's all-in pillowfort. I don't have Ghostly Prison or Propaganda yet, but I have quite a lot of the other cards. Ixalan's Binding is fun against commanders :)

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:

Bishop of Binding, Phyrexian Ingester, Profane Procession  Flip, Hostage Taker, Rayami, First of the Fallen, Godsend, Ixalan's Binding, Exclusion Ritual

(I don't think Duplicant works even though AFAIK the cards are exiled at the same time but I could be wrong.)

Finally, if you really want to be cruel... Show

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.
