First thought is that if you have the budget, switch out Cancel for something else; it's been outclassed pretty hard. Disallow and Overwhelming Denial are both good options, and the latter has good synergy with Rewind.

Consider some Fog effects: Ethereal Haze, Kami of False Hope, and Riot Control are all effective. I haven't seen a Spirit-based Turbofog deck, but it might be doable.

Angel of Flight Alabaster gives your spirits a second chance if something goes wrong.

Supreme Verdict is a huge sweeper. AEtherize is pretty good bounce as a budget option.

Ok, are you playing in MTGO or paper? Either way, here are the cards I might take out, either because they are too slow, or they are better in multiplayer (or they are just bad). Dark Salvation, Prized Amalgam, Noxious Ghoul, Liliana's Reaver, Army of the Damned, Crux of Fate, Vanquisher's Banner, Noosegraf Mob, Vindictive Lich, Dread Summons, Endless Ranks of Dead, Altar of Dementia, Sol Ring, Undead Alchemist, Kindred Dominance, Geralf's Messenger, Never / Return, Call to the Grave Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. You could definitely take out others as you play the deck.

Here are some good cards that would be good to have, but not all will make the cut. Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Dominance, Arcane Denial, Counterspell, Lim-Dul's Vault, Swan Song, Pact of Negation, Snapcaster Mage, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Toxic Deluge, Damnation, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thought Vessel, Glen Elendra Archmage, Commander's Sphere, Solemn Simulacrum, Gilded Lotus, Cyclonic Rift, Overwhelming Denial, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Forbid, Bloodchief Ascension, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Underground Sea, Sunken Ruins, Cavern of Souls, Ancient Tomb.

I'm sure there are many other cards that would be great in the optimized version of this deck, but these are the ones I can think of right now. Also, I am not extremely familiar with the current meta of MTGO(?) 1v1 commander, so there may be cards that are good because of the meta. You will want to do some research and you will definitely make changes as you play. Have Fun!

hahahaha I asked you wrong, sorry! I tell you in another way xD

Why you didn't include Overwhelming Denial? Do you think Overwhelming Denial could work?

Thanks for your answer

Seething Song is already in my list; not sure why it isn't on here. I won't have more than one red ritual in the deck, I don't think, but I may replace Seething Song with one of the 2 cmc ones to help with Firemind's Foresight. Overwhelming Denial actually doesn't work well as a replacement for Counterflux, since Counterflux is in there to get rid of messy stacks, not to be uncounterable. I definitely should add Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast; I have them sitting around somewhere, I think.

I recommend adding the three rituals Seething Song,Desperate Ritual, and Pyretic Ritual.

Overwhelming Denial would make a better replacement for Counterflux. Pyroblast, and Red Elemental Blast work well as counterspells and kill spells.
