"Kamarupa (Sk.). Metaphysically, and in our esoteric philosophy, it is the subjective form created through the mental and physical desires and thoughts in connection with things of matter, by all sentient beings, a form which survives the death of their bodies. After that death three of the seven “principles”—or let us say planes of senses and consciousness on which the human instincts and ideation act in turn—viz., the body, its astral prototype and physical vitality,—being of no further use, remain on earth; the three higher principles, grouped into one, merge into the state of Devachan (q.v.), in which state the Higher Ego will remain until the hour for a new reincarnation arrives; and the eidolon of the ex-Personality is left alone in its new abode. Here, the pale copy of the man that was, vegetates for a period of time, the duration of which is variable and according to the element of materiality which is left in it, and which is determined by the past life of the defunct. Bereft as it is of its higher mind, spirit and physical senses, if left alone to its own senseless devices, it will gradually fade out and disintegrate. But, if forcibly drawn back into the terrestrial sphere whether by the passionate desires and appeals of the surviving friends or by regular necromantic practices—one of the most pernicious of which is medium- ship—the “spook” may prevail for a period greatly exceeding the span of the natural life of its body. Once the Kamarupa has learnt the way back to living human bodies, it becomes a vampire, feeding on the vitality of those who are so anxious for its company. In India these eidolons are called Pisâchas, and are much dreaded, as already explained elsewhere." - (http://theosophy.wiki/w-en/index.php?title=Kama-Rupa)

I feel like with both Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens, Orator of Ojutai deserves some consideration. Namely, it's got Flying, which is useful evasion the other two don't have. It's considerably less useful in finding an Arcades, but better when building up creatures for a swing.

Your Sideboard doesn't look filled out, so I think Slaughter the Strong is a [cough] strong contender. It's been very effective one-sided removal IME.

Maybe too pricey and not as useful as your current non-creature spells, but I think Eladamri's Call is also a good fit here. The advantage is offers, while not being as broadly useful, is that's it more specifically useful in that it gets the exact creature you need, compared to the gamble of the top X or 5.

Finally, IME, Wall of Denial is a serious threat. Flying, tough, and difficult to remove, opponents are not happy to see it. Not sure it's really needed, but it def makes kills faster with its big toughness.
