I like your idea. The only thing is the posion immunity. To be fair if undead can't get posion immunity neither should any other race.

Probably this race idea will not be realised soon.
We need to balance and add more content to dwarves, add scaledfolk, add some more content to other races.

Another problem - summoning structures as you described. It is not yet in the game and will take time to implement.

And with each additional race included it will be such a pain to balance.
For example scaledfolk will have more poison variants - dots, fire-based ones, slowing... Must be this race be immune to all of these variants? If yes than scaledfolk will be powerless to it.
Dwarves and orcs will be such a pain for this race to deal with.
As for undeads - will this race leave after death corpses? Which types? If no corpses than undeads will be weaker to them.

On small maps elves will be such a pain for this race. Cheap and pretty powerful archers and your design of race is really weak to elven rush.

So personally i don't like idea of this race. Too many questions and weak points.

You can in fact summon everything.

General summoning he suggested works different way:
Instead of just gaining instantly ready unit he suggests that summoning will give you unit with 1/x hp that will regenerate some of hp each turn until it will get 100% of his hp.

Its basically the wc3 version of the undead with more emphasis on ice, may b spirits can have a dodge ranged chance
