Some suggestions with no regard to card prices, so take these with a grain of salt, I guess:

Open the Armory to me, is slightly better than Steelshaper's Gift, just because you can tutor for Darksteel Mutation if you happen to need it. That seems like a resonable tradeoff for 1 colorless mana.

Taj-Nar Swordsmith seems like an obvious inclusion for the deck, maybe instead of Karmic Guide since you don't have a lot of dudes with big impact you'd need to bring back?

Grand Abolisher and Emancipation Angel seem like filler, especially since Flickerwisp exists if you want to blink for 3 mana and still have a flying body. I'd recommend swapping both Abolisher and Angel for Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer, though, since mono white always has issues with carddraw.

Tithe would probably be better than Gift of Estates, since you can at least guarantee one land off of it even if you happen to be the starting player.

Mirran Crusader seems like an OK card and reasonably competent at carrying equipments, but I'd much rather add Mentor of the Meek for extra carddraw. Following the theme of "cards that are completely ok, but could be better", I think Relic Seeker is just a tad unreliable and Leonin Shikari would make combat math more tricky for your opponent as well as counter spells that target your creatures for 1 colorless mana if you have Swiftfoot Boots.

As far as equipment cards go, I don't think Bonehoard ever had much impact and could just as well be Strata Scythe. Captain's Claws seem cute, but they don't create soldier tokens, so it's a bit underwhelming compared to other potential options. Seems like this could be an Umezawa's Jitte instead. Lastly, as cool as Masterwork of Ingenuity is, I think it's kind of awkward in a decklist that tries to assemble the Kaldra set and, if my suggestion is accepted, plays Jitte as well. I'd recommend actually cutting this equipment slot completely and replacing it with Sigarda's Aid, which was literally made for equipment decks.

There are also a lot of cards that can simply be better versions of themselves, like Day of Judgment being a worse Wrath of God, since you can't regenerate your creatures anyways, or Afterlife not being Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile. I kind of prefer Unexpectedly Absent to Oblation as well, but that's a matter of personal taste I suppose.

To summarize my suggestions:

OUT: Steelshaper's Gift, Karmic Guide, Grand Abolisher, Emancipation Angel, Gift of Estates, Mirran Crusader, Relic Seeker, Bonehoard, Captain's Claws, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Day of Judgment, Afterlife, Oblation

IN: Open the Armory, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer, Tithe, Mentor of the Meek, Leonin Shikari,Strata Scythe, Umezawa's Jitte, Sigarda's Aid, Wrath of God, Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile, Unexpectedly Absent

Thanks for the suggestion BrandonJamesCac. What would you suggest I replace in my deck for Spectral Procession? I felt that Secure the Wastes would be enough as far as token producing. It's also instant speed as compared to Spectral Procession. And as the game goes on Secure the Wastes only gets bigger, where as Spectral will only ever net me 3 spirit tokens.

Also, Afterlife is my budget option for Path to Exile. If you have a better budget suggestion I'd love to hear.

+1 mate, I love the spirit of your deck!

For the flavour alone, I have to suggest you Kirtar's Wrath, Afterlife, Spectral Procession, Twilight Drover and Spirit Bonds.

Now then, if you considered some of the cards I mentioned, you will tend to have more tokens, which will make cards like Intangible Virtue, Coat of Arms, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Honor of the Pure and perhaps Heliod, God of the Sun himself, why not!

Your deck seem to rely on blinking and etb effects, so Conjurer's Closet is worth thinking about. Also Geist-Honored Monk.

Since you still lack some cards with 88, maybe considering a alternate strategy with cards like Ghostly Prison, Propaganda. Both would work great with Windborn Muse, which is already in your mb, and I'm sure a army of spirits would imprison their enemies is ghostly shackles or insinuate ideas in their mind with subtle magics...

Hope this helped mate!

Flagstones of Trokair is an all around perfect card for any white EDH deck, even Tiny Leaders. Auriok Champion and Ghostblade Eidolon are great creatures to have, Transcendent Master is one of the biggest creatures in the format. Angelsong and Afterlife are both extremely versatile and are great toolbox cards. Marshaling Cry and Spear of Heliod can turn games around quickly or even end them. Abolish is essentially free and is incredible if you have a target.

Path to Exile is probably too expensive for removal so you could try Journey to Nowhere, Recumbent Bliss, or Swords to Plowshares. For some less common removal you could try Afterlife, Crib Swap, Intrepid Hero, Reciprocate, Soul Snare, or Valorous Stance.
