How should I upgrade this dumpy spirit precon?

Commander Deck Help forum

Here is the link to the Millicent spirit precon. It is bad.

I have four precons here that I'm upgrading: Ghired, Conclave Exile, Anje Falkenrath who is being swapped out for Chainer, Nightmare Adept, Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer who I just posted another help request about, and lastly the spirit precon here.

This one is by far the weakest and worth the least, and quite frankly spirits aren't great to begin with. Now, this question is really a matter of opinion I suppose, but it'd be great if someone could recommend a commander or some cards to really boost up the power level, but not ones that are super pricy.

I mean, sure, fetch lands and duals and Smothering Tithe + Rhystic Study would make it stronger, but if I had that money I'd just buy a whole new deck.

The main problem with the deck is that it's hard to get set up, and once you are set up, a board wipe is basically impossible to recover from. Not to mention that if I am set up and not hit with a wrath then my 1/1s will only do so much.

The deck also seems to have some tapping synergy as well as investigation. I'd be more than willing to mostly revamp the deck, but I kinda need some suggestions first because I have zero clue how to start.

If you want to lean more into tokens, Intangible Virtue, Inspiring Leader, Geist-Honored Monk, and Phyrexian Rebirth and the new Sunfall as board wipes are all options.

If you're going into Spirit tribal, my suggestions are going to be more expensive. Hallowed Haunting, Kindred Discovery, Cavern of Souls, and Vanquisher's Banner are good.

Brago, King Eternal and Soulherder lend themselves to a blink deck.

Other thoughts are Waxmane Baku, Dungeon Geists, and Nikko-Onna as unorthodox control choices, Skyclave Apparition as a less unorthodox control choice, Cemetery Illuminator, Call to the Kindred, and Kindred Boon with some Myojin, especially Myojin of Seeing Winds. (Most things with Kindred in the name are good for tribal decks.)

Maybe not the Myojin. The new ones don't use divinity counters.

Hmm... Okay, that's actually pretty helpful. Thanks for the help mate!

Maybe spirit tribal isn't so bad, eh?
