borneuw thank you so much for the comment!
After looking over the 3 cards, I am not going to consider Glaring Spotlight because I don't really think it has a place in the deck. I agree that of the 3 it is the weakest.
Shadowspear and Arcane Lighthouse are really strong options. I love that Arcane Lighthouse enter's untapped and has good utility. I could very easily throw this card into the deck. Shadowspear makes me think about how I can utilize the card's effect more than once If I really have to. Since it will be destroyed by Child's death trigger, it feels like a tough sell compared to Arcane Lighthouse. Now, that being said I do think that Shadowspear is the best of the bunch because of it's ability to hit hexproof and indestructible at the same time while also providing some sustaining lifegain. Which can be incredibly important if we were behind in getting Child on the board. This in combination with Diamond Valley can net us a huge buffer when our opponents begin to see us as a threat. Not to mention just how brutal 7 commander damage is for our opponents.
I think at this point either card could easily replace maybe one of the neon dynasty lands with channel like Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire. I'm gonna add both to my maybe list to keep in mind if I find that I need more tech in that department.

Shadowspear seems like it would work best with your grind game Child of Alara voltron wincon. It costs 1 generic mana, and can give Alara +1/+1, lifelink and trample, while also being able to remove hexproof and indestructible at instant speed for only 1 additional generic mana. You could possibly replace one of your least useful disruption spells for this.
If you can spare a land drop or land slot, arcane lighthouse can remove hexproof or shroud, and you can sacc it later to search your guildgates using Scapeshift. The one concern is that it taps for colorless mana. I don't know how much that would inconvenience you when you are building up your manabase in the early game. Overall I thought this should be less of a priority than Shadowspear, but it is immune to Alara's destruction effects so it might actually be more synergistic with your deck.
Glaring Spotlight seems to be the worst of the three options for your deck, but it could be considered as a side deck option.

Arcane Lighthouse etc to steal creatures with hexproof

Arcane Lighthouse or something that removes shroud/hexproof so you can kill what you want to copy from your opponents board.

I would recommend both as adds. Pemmin's also works well with Merieke if you just want to board wipe an opponent.

Monomanamaniac: Oh, you definitely did help. You even said something pretty important regarding Voltron strategies. I think I'll find room for a copy of each of Detection Tower and [glaring spotlight], as I already own both of these. Arcane Lighthouse might be useful, too, but ordering it just for that seems over the top.
