Well, rather lacking in things to look at, but sure...

Storm Pact
Charged Air: This really, really needs to be non-minion creature. Before looking at the damage, this feature should only harm enemies I think. Having your melee characters be unable to focus fire because you cursed the target is bad. As for the amount of damage, this is well, very high. At MOST I would make this deal just the monsters level in damage, not twice; remembering you haven't given it an attack roll so it's just automatic.

Circuit Cordon: Formatting aside and the utter lack of keywords, a close burst 3 is very large for an at-will. I'd probably make it close burst 1 if it only hurt enemies, or close burst 2 if it hit everyone. However this being a striker power, I'd considering boosting the base damage to 1d10. More important, this should add your charisma modifier to the damage roll.

Phantom Pact
Ghastly Knowledge: I...well, this is pretty ridiculous, and the star pact is crying. If you typed this as a power bonus, and made it only apply to your next attack roll, then it might be okay.

Spirit Swarm: This is lacking too much information to critique to be honest, you need range, keywords, etc. See some of the things on Circuit Cordon though, like missing an attribute to the damage roll.
