Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch Discussion

Looks neat, if kind of slow. If you really want to irritate people, some good cards are Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch for repeated bounces and Shriekgeist for well-costed flyers. Shriekgeist also helps with the mill sub-theme. I'd cut Silent Observer, it does way too little for 4 cmc. Lastly, it might be cool to use Geist of the Archives, but I'll leave that to you.

Since the secondary ability of Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs only works with deserts and I'm trying to modernize this deck, I found some potential replacements, as there's no point in including slow lands for a single creature.
- Steel Wall
- Oona's Gatewarden
- Perimeter Captain
- Order of the Stars
- Consulate Skygate
- Wall of Tanglecord
- Cathedral Membrane
- Thing in the Ice Flip
- Returned Phalanx
- Murmuring Phantasm
- Ludevic's Test Subject Flip
- Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch
- Jeskai Barricade
- Geist of the Lonely Vigil
- Fog Bank
- Angelic Wall
- Vertigo Spawn
- Wall of Omens
- Wall of Essence
I really like Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch because of how bouncing enemy threats is a big theme of this deck, but I could also see Thing in the Ice Flip being a replacement for both Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs as well as Striped Riverwinder though it doesn't get Hexproof. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Perimeter Captain can be fun when defender is relevant. In general creatures with defender are ignored as non-threats, Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch is a threat since it bounces what it blocks, however I'm guessing you are fine with an opponent using removal on a wall rather than your dragonlord...

you're going to have to put in AEther Storm otherwise you're still leaving yourself wide open.
Kataki, War's Wage by itself will blow you out of the water.

Love the deck!
A Moorland Haunt would give you some late game ways of getting more spirits.

The budget here is really tight! Hahaha
I've just restarted to play MTG (stopped at Mirrodin, long time ago), so there is a lot to learn and cards do know. I really appreciate the help and suggestions.
I've tested the deck and noticed that I need ways to deal with creatures, especially in the early-game. The Mage-Ring Network worked very well stocking some mana for the Stormtide Leviathan, Venarian Glimmer or Syncopate.
