Exile target creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. If it's a Spirit, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

Essence Flux is the cheapest+easiest way to restart Spellseeker loops if let's say you're on the 2UB turn 2 play and someone Dispel s your Culling the Weak . You cast Essence Flux targeting Spellseeker and you get 2 more tutor triggers for 1U.
Retraced Image is much more of an "in testing" card. The thought is being able to get wizards into play when you have a token copy on the field. This usually happens if you have a bounce spell in hand and bounce Spellseeker in response to something like Swords to Plowshares with tutors still on the stack. It also has even narrower uses like accelerating land drops if an opponent has the same land on the battlefield you have in hand, or discounting popular wizards like Dark Confidant or Spellseeker .

Hey man a few cards to consider adding.
These trigger twice, and can help you create infinite manna:
More ETBs lets you get 2 creature and both have strong effects: Wild Pair
A possible big finisher:

I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.
So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)
Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

Thanks for the comment Loganrockwitch.
Lingering Souls is really nice yep!
I have tried Inq and Thoughts it can be really good but to be honest its so painful especially with the land pain so Id rather play spirits and get the clock ticking faster.
Countersquall is nice to have encase of board wipes and the 2 life loss can be game winning
