The deck looks good but it is too slow for the meta. Aggro decks are probably going to destroy you (especially mono red) and you are very vulnerable to board wipes making the white/blue control a hard matchup as well.
I would personnaly cut all 4 copies of Nightveil Sprite because it is way too slow for little upside.
An interesting idea would be to add 3 copies of Cauldron Familiar, 4 Witch's Oven and 4 Emry, Lurker of the Loch. You only need 1 cat in the graveyard to keep sacrificing it to the oven, emry is a very good card that does what the deck wants and can get the oven back from the graveyard and the oven/cat combo is very good against aggro. The cauldron also as other upsides like preventing your creatures from being exiled from banishing light (for the shepherd). It is just an idea though, it might be bad because emry is also quite a slow card and the cauldron and cat doesn't synergise very well with the rest of the deck apart from energizing with themselves. I think it is worth a try though.
Also I think Ashiok, Dream Render is worth considering as well. Oh and Doom Whisperer can be an insane finisher, if you surveil for a long time with Creeping Chill and probably kill them if you have Devourer of Memory in play (instant speed removal would be a disaster though).
That being said I really like the idea of the deck and been thinking about building something similar for a while.
