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.

Hmm... Well a good way to keep tempo, and lower the power level of board wipes would definitely be ETB effects. Or cards that do things on death (similar to Filigree Familiar). Maybe Baral's Expertise? It would slow them down and help build extra temp for you, casting more of your spells for free. Also could bounce some of your ETB creatures if need be.I don't know how easy Delierum is for your deck to achieve, but if its easy enough, Topplegeist can help you with more control. Essence Flux can be used to protect the key creatures in the deck from board wipes, as well as trigger more of you ETBs you have plenty of. For control against Aggro decks (especially token aggro decks) Declaration in Stone is great. Eerie Interlude could save you from board wipes as well, and hit the ETBs.
I don't know if you want to play around with your ETBs as much as I am thinking, and I apologize if I missed the mark, but a lot of your control seems to come from ETBs. Hope that helps?
I'll let you know if anything else comes to mind

I was actually looking for something that could let me go infinity combo with Essence Flux or Cloudshift on Archaeomancer, but it means either splashing green for Tamiyo or holding out for 10 mana on Omniscience, which for this deck is not really viable. My other concern is trample, as Savage Alliance was a bit mana-heavy (seriously, full escalation would give it the highest CMC in my deck!). Need better options here.
The other issue is cost. This deck cost me 25 as-is, so a 5 card is quite chunky by comparison! But definitely room for improvement in this one.
Worth bearing in mind that essence flux will clear any prowess triggers on the creature it targets, and if they don't have Haste they're also sum,oning sick as well. However with Nibhlis I'd still get the tap trigger and he'd get a 1/1 counter, so not entirely lost. Worth doing to tap down an opponents creature on their first main phase.

Something like Merchant Scroll would work. Use it to tutor up an Essence Flux while you've got a Niblis of Frost in play, the triggers stack and then you have a 6/6 Flyer for the turn. It's a shame there's not a white equivalent of Merchant Scroll.

I feel like the curve is too high. Only 7 2 drops and 10 3s. thats as much as the 4s.
