I see the strength of this deck in its straightforward strategy; while everyone else is setting up degenerate combos and not actually defending themselves, you can beat the heck out of them before they finish telling you how "mono white is unplayable".

You might consider some creatures that provide buffs for your team. Benalish Marshal , Archetype of Courage , and Celestial Crusader would be good fits that aren't too pricey.

How about creatures that bring along some friends: Precinct Captain and Geist-Honored Monk help you go wide.

You're gaining life, so maybe look at Speaker of the Heavens ? Lastly, Sunbond on Linden could be a great way to KO opponents via commander damage.

Nice deck! But I agree with previous commenters. It needs card advantage and more explosive plays.

Maybe the way to go with Winota is with a non- human Soldier token package with multiple anthems like Spear of Heliod, Icon of Ancestry, Hall of Triumph, Intangible Virtue and Crusade paired with human lords and non- human lords... Field Marshal, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Paragon of New Dawns, Celestial Crusader and Angel of Jubilation come to mind.

Also, Assemble the Legion + Divine Visitation seems nuts. Auratouched Mage + Eldrazi Conscription is nasty too. Gingerbrute, Tin Street Dodger and Chandra, Acolyte of Flame fit nice.

I love a good spirit deck. You could improve your curve a bit by removing some 2-drops and adding in a playset of Spectral Procession . Celestial Crusader is another good budget card for spirt decks (especially since most of your creatures are white). Finally, I'm not sure if it fits the theme as well, but for card draw I'd prefer Winged Words over Take Inventory .

You might try Celestial Crusader in place of Phantom General . I would also try to find some alternatives to Last Breath and Ghostly Possession - maybe Pacifism or Collective Effort ? (Not spirit cards, but still spooky looking.) You could also try a few copies of Intangible Virtue with all the spirit tokens.
