Try making a deck around the Celestial Kirin + Ugin's Conjurant combo. I'm working on one with some Death & Taxes flavor right now, it's pretty fun. (for me, not the people I'm playing against :P)

Trying to make an Astral Drift deck could be fun too. Maybe play Life from the Loam and the one mana cycling lands ( Lonely Sandbar ).

I love the Celestial Kirin and Ugin's Conjurant combo! Its land destruction that doesn't seem too evil!

Have you heard of Crucible of Worlds ? Its a fantastic card that I play in all my land destruction decks, so I would strongly suggest putting it at least in the sideboard.

I Don't think I have really seen a spirit deck before, I am curious as to how it plays out in your meta.

It seems you have a good start on it but there are a few spirits I think worth mentioning that I don't see among the assembled host. As there is never really anything such as to much draw power, Some options in tribe: Drogskol Reaver, Primordial Sage and Sturmgeist. If you are looking for some more life gain options: Drogskol Cavalry and Wall of Reverence. General mayhem: Celestial Kirin. Cryptic Gateway is decent and Fist of Suns might be vital for getting your Myojins into play cheaply (as it casts rather then puts into play).

Also the mana base seems like it could be trouble as many of your creatures are mana intensive in both color and cost, to that end I would recommend adding more ramp into the deck to both increase the mana pool and smooth out colors issues that might arise, probably about four more at least.

I would try cutting back on some of the single use token producers and focus more on repeatable token production. Custodi Soulbinders and Twilight Drover are some great repeatable token producers I see in your maybeboard that I think should totally make the main deck. Baku Altar is kind of mediocre, but is another way to repeatably generate spirit tokens.

There are a lot of great spirit effects that trigger off of casting spirit spells, and I think a great way to synergize with this is self-bounce effects. Nikko-Onna is repeatable enchantment removal that also triggers on cast effects. Nebelgast Herald can tap down opposing creatures, either to protect you from attacks or to tap down potential blockers. Sire of the Storm lets you draw cards off of your spirits, and Bygone Bishop does the same for all your cheap creatures. Spectral Shepherd lets you repeatably bounce your own spirits, whether to save them from removal or just reuse their etb effects. Celestial Kirin is a great piece of repeatable removal triggering off of your spirit casts. Another great way to bounce your own spirits is Crystal Shard. It can also disrupt your opponents by forcing them to leave up a mana (2 if you attempt to bounce at eot and again on your turn) to prevent their creatures from being returned to hand.

Twilight Shepherd is best friends with Teysa.

Baleful Eidolon early defense, and boosting to boot.

Belfry Spirit was made for teysa's ability.

Bygone Bishop gives great drawpower.

Celestial Kirin can be rediculously fun.

Crypt Ghast, ramp and extort, anyone?

Disowned Ancestor good early blocker that can grow.

Divinity of Pride just amazing!

Ghost Council of Orzhova the OG Orzhov baddie.

Hopeful Eidolon early lifegain and boosting.

Kami of False Hope my favourite white 1-drop, and for a good reason.

Karlov of the Ghost Council if you have a subtheme of lifegain, then this guys is the BOMB

Kataki, War's Wage if you're not big on artifacts yourself, this guys is fantastic.

Kokusho, the Evening Star just amazing

Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse even better hand hate

Lantern Kami cheap early air-control

Myojin of Cleansing Fire might be expensive, but I had to mention him.

Nikko-Onna solid enchantment hate

Obzedat, Ghost Council they're back. And better

Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens big beefy tokens? Yes please!

Revered Dead early awesome defense

Seizan, Perverter of Truth extra cards, at a price

Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker can turn things like Kami of False Hope into an endless loop.

To be continued...

I like the idea but I feel like there is something missing. I'd honestly like to run a Crib Swap or something just to have some hard removal, or splash black and run Esper Charm. Think Twice could also provide some instant speed draw. As for spirits, with the stall and instant speed, Celestial Kirin is a legitimate option, as is Hokori, Dust Drinker with the aether vial or Windborn Muse. Kira, Great Glass-Spinner could provide some neat protection. all told, good luck and hope it all works, its a little tricky to judge without the sideboard.
