: shake some guard out of the enchantment that bound
That assumes that the Binding Dream is the only mind-control spell. It could also be that, as was argued with the Dream of Unlife, there are minor spells that do the same thing but are far less effective/versatile than the Dream.
I guess the question comes down to--are most magic spells just castings of a Dream at the power level of the user, or are Dreams automatically more powerful than all other spells and usable only by great mages?
I tend to think the latter. The only spells we hear actually called Dreams are wielded by Shades/Avatara/Fallen Lords, and we've seen at least a few spells of lesser mages (like fireballs and confusion) which are named but not called Dreams. So I think it's fair to say that a non-Dream spell can have almost any kind of effect, though its power is limited. If Warlocks can Confuse without a Dream, surely the Baron can Charm without one.
