Celestial Kirin wipes mathematically. This deck isn't high-powered, but it's random and volatile enough to be fun. It wasn't built with a budget in mind, but when the smoke cleared, it was all about $60.00, which is nice. Mind's Eye and Cloudstone Curio make up 1/3 of that cost, so really, it's a cheap deck.

Token Help

Aside from wiping with the Kirin, this deck's main stretegy is to pump out tokens, and improve their quality with Anthem effects. Tokens aren't removed by any of the Kirin's wipes, as no 0 CMC arcane/spirits are included. Mirror Entity or Marshal's Anthem (kicked) can be big finishers.

Re-use & Protect

Through bounce (Blood Clock/Umbilicus and Erratic Portal) - re-cast those Spirits and keep the board clear. Use exile (Hikari, Twilight Guardian), regenerate ( Horizon Seed ), etc to protect your own things. You don't need a lot of board presence. It's OK to hold Spirits in hand until some targets present themselves.

Ramp & Draw

I used 0 CMC rocks like Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice to avoid nuking my own stuff. Rockeggs like Dreamstone Hedron and Mind Stone can be cracked for draws before you wipe them.

Other Removal

To mop up where the Kirin can't hit.

Other Spirits

Of varying utility and power.

Abres_Tenelles Thanks for the comment!

I've used That Which Was Taken, and was underwhelmed by the amount of mana that had to be invested to get results.

I have just one copy of Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and she resides in my Angel deck. Otherwise, she's perfect for this.

I wasn't familiar with Cauldron of Souls - I think I'll grab one of those for this deck, and my Sek'kuar deck as well. Awesome suggestions.

I have someone in my play group that runs this commander and its pretty amusing once the spirits start hitting the board. I recommend Darksteel Plate, Selfless Spirit, Shield of Kaldra, Kindred Boon, Karmic Guide, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin as these help mitigate the fallout of your commander's abilities.

Some other interesting creatures you might consider are Wall of Reverence, Windborn Muse, Yosei, the Morning Star, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Kataki, War's Wage and Eidolon of Rhetoric.
