Converge — Exile target nonland permanent if its converted mana cost/mana value is less than equal to the number of colours of mana spent to cast this spell.

Nice to hear!!
I’m reslly surprised to see Path to Exile still in the list though - that card is a massive liability. I’d be replacing them with either March of Otherworldly Light, or more copies of Prismatic Ending or Counterspell

Yeah Leyline Binding doesn’t feel very good here - primarily because the cheapest you can cast it is for 3 mana, which is far too steep a cost to ever be worthwhile.
Even with a change of manabase to make it effectively cost 1 mana, there’s a few other setbacks which might make it less powerful here than in other decks:
Shark Typhoon, Alpine Moon, Rest in Peace, and Stony Silence all encourage your opponent to bring-in enchantment hate from their sideboard, which might make Binding more vulnerable than it usually would be.
your deck is neither hard-control, neither focused on card-advantage, so the potentially-temporary nature of Binding poses a bit more of a threat than it would in the decks that typically run it.
I think Binding probably still works in this deck pretty fine, and I don’t imagine it causing any real issues (local meta depending) - but in order to run it your deck would really need to be fielding the landbase to provide all 5 colours (I would imagine you’d want this anyway for the sake of Prismatic Ending, though its less common to require soo many colours for that card).

I don't think the zirda is worth a slot just to reduce the cost of necrotic slivers ability to 1. Especially since you have to sacrifice the sliver for the ability. Now if you could pay 1 repeatedly and then sac the sliver on resolution I might be more open to the idea. I sorta feel similar to the footsteps unless you want to consider adding Ashen Rider as well since thats $$ in my book. I also think you could consider Enduring Renewal as well for the sliver interaction.
Overall here is what I would try: -2 zirda, -4 unmarked grave, -2 not dead after all, - 1 footsteps of the goryo and add 2 Enduring Renewal, 1 persist, 3 Ashen Rider, +2 Prismatic Ending, and 1 more land. This should give you a better lategame.

Possible answers, non-exhaustive and in no particular order:
Countering and discard, the usual array
Most of these are sideboard material at best, but some are general enough to hold up in a fringe deck, or specific enough to be in most sideboards. (What an insightful comment. Some of the possible answers are bad, some are okay, and some are pretty good. Watch out, analysts, here I come.)
So I would say that if The One Ring takes over, Esper Control might wander back into the upper ranks (while using The Ring itself), Burn and Hammer just kind of ignore it and work around the turn of protection, and Raggy-Reggie-Ragey decks might slip a little bit.
I haven't faced or used The One Ring in action yet, so this is me eyeballing and speculating, but I'm leaning toward not banworthy. The One Ring is two-thirds of a control deck in a single card, with the protection and draw, but control could use a hand. And it looks like Omnath is already locking it in. Which will get banned first, The One Ring or Omnath-4? It'll fill in a few more decks, maybe become the centerpiece of its own deck with Voltaic Key turbo-draw or Escape Protocol perma-protection, but it's not going to explode Modern unless something happens in Caves of Ixalan or whatever.
And if I'm wrong, it's another card for my banlist-only deck, so there.

Purphoros is not a bad card, however its one of those "do nothing for 4 mana" cards.
I like it better when most cards in the deck are cheap, AND if they are permanents then the either cantrip, or reutrn if they are removed.
Plus "unrestricted" white removal - in Prismatic Ending & Leyline Binding is at an all time high, thus its purphoros is more liable to removal than ever.
My goal with building this deck was to build somethign tht plays like mardu pyro used to.
I am not exactly looking for the fastest glass cannon build of 8whack, nor for the "deals the most damage in absolute terms" variant of the same idea.
With the deck i want to abuse drawing more of my deck than the opponent, and the power of Reckless Handling

Very interesting indeed.
I playtested the deck a couple of times meanwhile and realized, that a combo with three permanents struggles against board interaction such as Prismatic Ending, spot removal like Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt, you name it. However the deck consistently won at turn three most of the times.
Thanks for the suggestion legendofa!

So you need a sideboard, as a starting point something like this:
2x Path of Peril - Small creatures humans/merfolk/prowess
3x Prismatic Ending - Good generic answer
2x Teferi, Time Raveler - Cascade/control
3x Leyline of Sanctity - Discard
3x Stony Silence - Shuts down most artifact grave hate
1x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - Mill
1x Orvar, the All-Form - Creativity

Can't you use Planar Disruption to enchant your opponent's artifacts though? It says so right on the card. Also creatures and planeswalkers. I guess Non-land Permenant, (Prismatic Ending) technically means that it hits encahntments AS WELL as artifacts, planeswalkers and creatures.
I guess Declaration in Stone is wholly creatures and probably should be seen as a completely different kind of card.
