Any suggestions? The spell selection is kind of unimpressive, but I ran out of ideas.

An anti sprite mage in my opinion should have mana static and offensive mana barrier. I would also go banishing over astral combat, though that's more stylistic than utility.

You should also have a direct combat spell. Their best use is against high force spirits on either the material or astral.

I  honestly would trade attributes with skills. You attributes are kind of low for someone who intends to tangle with spirits as a specialiality

An Aztec Pixie..........anyone else getting flashbacks of the old the old Speedy Gonzalez cartoon character?
Can Pixies even have a SIN?
Who did he/she get their trustfund from?
1 Body is just asking to get dead the first time someone can toss a Power Bolt or just plain Shoot at you.
A Pixie sized gas mask?  Really?
It seems a little cheesy to me.

You'll definitely want some more body.  A possible solution would be to take the increase body spell, and get a sustaining health focus.

1. Yes. EVO, Pomorya and Amazonia issue SINs for pixies.
2. EVO?
3. Body 1 is actually a soft cap for a pixie.
4. Goddamn EVO, man! What will they do next, centaur slippers?

EVO hasn't gotten any respect for like 2 Editions, they gotta do something to get their name back out there.
Pixie tend to be love'em or hate'em, so it most folks will at-least have some meaningful reaction.

I like the astral combat route for a spirit fighter, especially with your will/chr.  But your logic will make your defense in astral combat a bit shaky. Personally I'm also fine with the lack of a direct combat spell, starting at 0 damage its just way too many shots to bring a spirit down.  I don't want to go that many passes against one on the astral, and on the physical plane lightning bolt or fireball works just fine.
