If a spell is cast on you or your spirit both share the spell effect but damage is settled separately. When you reform add the remaining hp and divide it by two to find your current HP.

It's kind of interesting, but all it does is buff itself. You can't do anything a gish couldn't do. In fact I would almost call this just a downgraded gish. Although you can get a death effect with a DC equal to how much damage you deal, so let's see 8d6 slam does an average of 28 damage and you add your Strength Modifier, so you can easily get a DC 40 death effect. That's pretty nice. At any rate I kind of like the class, I'm not sure if it measures up to Tome of Battle in terms of power though, if this can work as Tier 3 it is golden.

This is what I had hoped for, a decent class not over powered* but with lots of options. Any idea on other augmentations? That's what I really need help with.

*Note not saying ToB is over powered

Hmm... first off you should note that spell scarred can only be taken twice, and it should be + Class level not HD on the off chance that a high HD low CR takes levels of this class. By the way when I say the ability to get 40 DC on a death effect is "nice" I mean that it is pretty darn overpowered and the only reason an optimizer would take this class, but a very good one to do so. Also you never explain how Final Augment works or what the hell final finish is actually you kinda do, but how does final finish work? Okay I think I understand it but if I do then the finishes seem too powerful. As an idea for a Final Augment though:
Demon Lord: Evil Only. You take on the terror and power of a lord of the Lower Planes.

The fluff is that your spiritual body is every changing but when you get to higher levels you start to finish the change. You are augmenting your spirit for a while until you can not change it anymore. Like a butterfly you know?

Er, sure like a butterfly. But yeah I get the idea I just mean is it constantly active? Cause they are pretty darn powerful.

I would say yes but if that's too powerful I might just have to nerf it.

Well the Tiger one is the only truly broken one, the Dragon is almost broken and the Pheonix one sucks unless you don't think you can be brought back by a True Ressurection, since the way you have it written you would lose a level. The Turtle one is really good but not broken though you should specify that it is an Immediate Action (I'm assuming it is). The thing about the Dragon one is it denies abilities like Evasion making Rogue types go down fast in front of it; other than that it doesn't deal enough damage to threaten a melee type and a spellcaster wouldn't let it even work. So yeah I guess the Tiger one should be made limited in use.
