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".

2-drop mana dorks like Iron Myr , Gold Myr , Manakin , Hedron Crawler , Plague Myr , Wily Goblin , and Magda, Brazen Outlaw seem good with Winota since they get her out faster, and then once she's out they can attack to trigger her ability.

Looking good! After a few playtests, it's clear just how quickly you can assemble a small but versatile army. If I may, I have a few questions and/or recommendations for the deck. I'll start with the overarching notes.
First: why isn't there more red? It seems that you've bulked up on white and blue despite having all this red mana at your disposal. I can certainly understand the appeal when it comes to cards like Jaya's Immolating Inferno or Finale of Glory , but unless this is a dedicated combo deck bent on tutoring out a similar win con (may I suggest Comet Storm ?), I have to wonder how you're planning on making it work. If you aren't as dedicated to that, I would look into ways to turn red (or colorless!) noncreature spells into cantrips. Jori En, Ruin Diver comes to mind. While you're at it, Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip and Runaway Steam-Kin , if not price-prohibitive, would be decent additions.
Second, it would seem you need a few more dedicated spirit token generators. Spirits can get expensive, but it is certainly possible to pick out Court of Grace , Geist-Honored Monk , and Promise of Bunrei .
I realize those are not red cards. Have you considered Electrostatic Field , Gelectrode , or Thermo-Alchemist ? Maybe take a look at modern Arclight Phoenix decks? I would also look up boros anthem effects, which are probably better than mono-white ones. Nobilis of War is free after 5 spirits.
Overall, I think being clear about how tall and how wide you want this deck to be will help streamline its consistency. Kykar has a lot going on; make the most of him (or her)!

This deck seems tailor-made for Essence Flux . It could replace or play alongside Cloudshift . As for other flicker effects, I've had moderate success with Eerie Interlude as a Ghostway that lets you keep what you need on the board. Focusing more on spirits, there's Supreme Phantom as another lord or Forbidding Spirit , Geist-Honored Monk , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , and Hanged Executioner as cards that might synergize with the exile theme. Less budget-friendly but still powerful includes are Spell Queller and Skyclave Apparition .

Ah nice deck! I have a couple of suggestions you might appreciate. The first one revolves around your lands and ramp. Personally, I believe the following should have a spot in your deck.
- Wooded Bastion
- Windswept Heath
- Fortified Village
- Horizon Canopy
- Razorverge Thicket
I also like to run some multi lands, and if you want to try that out too, I would consider the following
- Exotic Orchard
- Ancient Tomb
- Mana Confluence
- Fabled Passage
- Yavimaya Hollow
- Reflecting Pool
- Prismatic Vista
- Forbidden Orchard
- Gemstone Mine
- Gemstone Caverns
There is also the concept of ramp! Some ramp I always love to run are
- Birds of Paradise
- Nature's Lore
- Lotus Petal
- Oracle of Mul Daya
Now usually lands are ramp are my expertise, but I happen to be building an emiel deck as well! Because of that I have some suggestions that you might find interesting. So first off, Brood Monitor goes infinite with emiel! When it enters, you get three eldrazi tokens which you can sacrifice for . You use that three to flicker the brood monitor with emiel, and get another three tokens which you can use to flicker it again. This gives you infinite enter the battlefield triggers. If you have your Soul Warden or something better, this can gain you infinite life. Another thing that can go infinite is if you use Ashnod's Altar. Any creature that creates 2+ tokens, with the Altar, and Emiel gets you infinite as well! If the creature creates three or more tokens when it enters, you also get infinite tokens. The possibilities here are limitless! If you have Aura Shards you destroy all your opponents artifacts and enchantments, if you have something that makes them lose life, or mill, that's also infinite. You can just go crazy and win fast. Some cards that create 2+ are....
- Regal Caracal
- Hornet Queen
- Geist-Honored Monk
- Deep Forest Hermit
- and many others!
Anyway, there are many ways to go infinite with Emiel, and I recommend checking them out if your into that sort of thing. Also do consider the land and ramp options, they could help you out a ton! If this does help you out be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH), upvote them if you like them, and give me feedback if you want! Anyways, I hope this helps you out, good luck on your deck, (unicorns are amazing!) and have a great day!

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:
Deep Forest Hermit
Ghave, Guru of Spores
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner
Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:
Birds of Paradise
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)
And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:
...all seem like good includes.
Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.
