For it to be a legal constructed deck it needs to be 60 cards...I think you're at 51. So that needs to change. You're also not telling us a format, which determines the cards available for use in the deck. I'm going to assume it's just purely casual and restricted by a bit of a budget?
I'd try just making it 2 colors instead of 4. Because that'd be insanely hard on your mana base. You could probably go White/Blue/Black if you just limited the amount of Black cards you needed.
I wouldn't play green. Just for Wildwood? not worth it.
In terms of deckbuilding, the first thing I'd do is play 4x Drogskol Captain. That's really what makes a deck like this work. Then you play 4x Midnight Haunting and 4x Lingering Souls. Those 3 cards will make your deck a real threat because of the kinds of threats it can put out. You can supplement it with cards like Intangible Virtue and Favorable Winds to make your tokens and spirits more powerful. Most of your other spirits are just kind of...underwhelming. They're over-costed and not very strong.
Your spells are kinda...meh. Feeling of Dread is good, but you should probably have more of them. ~2 in the deck. Then there's good removal like Oblivion Ring, Go for the Throat, Doom Blade, Murder. And utility spells like Dimir Charm, Orzhov Charm, and Azorius Charm. You also have counterspells like Mana Leak and Dissipate.
You should diversify your lands with some Guildgates, Shocklands, or Taplands. On a budget you'd probably want to stick with Guildgates: Dimir Guildgate, Orzhov Guildgate, and Azorius Guildgate. You can also use the land Moorland Haunt to continually get spirits once your creatures die. And Vault of the Archangel is good with a lot of creatures too.
"You can call yourself whatever you want.
Soldier. Leader. Patriot. Revolutionary. It doesn't matter.
At our core we're all the same thing.
