Just seen your comment Argy, if you want the truth its because I was briefly taken over by the spirit of the Obzedat, Ghost Council for a bit.

Took a few experiments to purge myself.

Obzedat, Ghost Council is good, also Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. you could also add some big eldrazi (Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger) if you want to be super budget. Other than that I think the deck is very nice

Wassup! Hey I was making a black white spirit deck too! Here is my deck and I was thinking maybe you could look at that and get some inspiration! :). And plus here are the best black white spirit commanders IMO. Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, and Karlov of the Ghost Council. And plus add your commander to that list and that should give you a wide list of options to choose from and how to build your deck around your commander but not depending too much on your commander. Here is my deck!

Souls Please!

Wow! Thank you cdkime for playtesting the deck for me! Where did you test it out? And I thought about Kavu Predator when throwing the deck together but decided against it because I usually would only want them to gain life if I had Tainted Remedy out. Since Obzedat, Ghost Council isn't performing well I might swap him out with Luminarch Ascension or maybe another token generating card, and when making the deck originally I put Drana's Emissary in as a place holder because I couldn't really think of anything else that could be a good fit in this spot.

This was an incredibly fun deck to playtest--always nice to see something new.

I was a tad underwhelmed with Obzedat, Ghost Council--it found its mana cost a bit high for what you got. It generally sat around in my hand as I happily played other cards for the same cost. Drana's Emissary was also relatively low-impact in terms of its drain ability, but the cost was more manageable, and its evasive body proved helpful.

As for card suggestions: Kavu Predator might prove interesting. You never know when your Tainted Remedy might be removed (or, as it was in one of my playtests, hit with Meddling Mage). Always a good idea to have a backup plan.
