These are typically the "core" Modern spirits creatures:
Now you're on a budget so I think Queller and Selfless are out. But if you can squeeze Wanderer and Phantom into your budget (I'd replace Tallowisp and your two 2x spirits), I highly highly recommend. A scalable utility 1 drop and a 2 drop lord make a huge difference. Then you can probably cut to 22x lands.
You usually want slightly more blue than white mana sources, since more of your color pips are blue in most spirits decks. Try 1-2 extra Island, swapping out Plains.
I've tried Staggering Insight and I honestly don't think it's worth it at 2 mana. Curious Obsession imo is better if you want this sort of effect. If instead you decide you don't want any of this, I suggest something cheap like Spell Pierce, just as a nice easy out to planeswalkers and other noncreature stuff people might drop on you.
Hope some of this helps you out. Good luck! Spirits is insanely fun.

This deck is beauteous. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be a fun include since your general can tutor for Shields of Velis Vel ;) You might consider these too: Bishop of Wings, Rattlechains, Crested Sunmare, Risen Reef, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Drogskol Captain, Hero of Goma Fada, Harabaz Druid, Wirewood Channeler, Midnight Entourage, Whelming Wave.
Also, the changeling champions (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero, Changeling Titan) could be neat since your general can tutor for them and if you loop all three of you get an arbitrary number of ETB triggers in any creature type. You could draw your deck with Azami or Risen Reef, blow up opponents' boards with Reaper King, get infinite life with Bishop of Wings!

Yes! Reaper King! That card has always been close to my heart, so it's always great to see a deck for him.
I've brewed with it extensively, so I have some suggestions for you:
Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , if it's within budget, allows for quite a bit of card draw and a win-condition attached to it.
Gisa and Geralf will be able to recur the changelings for later use.
Knight Exemplar is fantastic defense for your board, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can draw many cards, Sygg, River Guide can protect creatures, and Ingenious Infiltrator can be awesome if you start to swarm. With so many creatures, Call to the Kindred could be cute.
Reaper King is a massive target whenever he hits the field, so it's important to have a few backup plans.
Good luck with Scarecrows and Vindicate EVERYTHING!

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

Have you considered this Rattlechains to give your spirits flash?

With the recent Soulherder card that's going to be released soon, I am considering building a W/U tribal Spirit deck that centers around bouncing creatures to buff it up, as well as using ETB effects to lock down the opponent. Obviously I would use cards like Nebelgast Herald , Rattlechains , and Spell Queller , as well as cards like Essence Flux , Path to Exile , and maybe even Always Watching ? I'd also maybe like to include Geist of Saint Traft , Brago, King Eternal , and Drogskol Captain if I can, but they may not fit.
I'm hoping I can get some suggestions for card choices here? I pretty much have lands covered and most of the creatures, but any suggestions would be most welcome. I'd like to keep this tribal, too.

In an all-spirit deck like this, I wouldn't leave home without a set of Supreme Phantom . Rattlechains is also a cheap way of messing with combat math throughout the game. Since your two Spiritual Visits only have each other to splice on, I'd recommend something like Topplegeist in their place.
