Play more 4-ofs. Take out ALL VANILLA CREATURES. ALL OF THEM!!! Take out Healing Grace take out Benalish Honor Guard and take out danitha because you dont have enaugh auras and equipment. try to cut anything that costs 5 or more when you take out sol ring. This deck needs 4 each of Accorder Paladin Knight Exemplar Silverblade Paladin and History of Benalia. You cant run 2 colors with only 2 tapped lands also. If you are going multicolored you shpuld idealy only have 5 lands that don't tap for both colors. For mono white I would play that mono colored knight from dominaria that gives all your creatures +1/+1. All modern decks that are white should have 4 path to exile.

You got an Ajani foil promo? That's luck right there. I would take out Eviscerate, Gideon's Reproach and Cast Down and replace them with Murder (and put Cast Down on the sideboard to sideboard in when you see a deck without legendary creatures). If you are focusing on having a lot of legendary creatures in this deck, then I would add 2 more of Benalish Honor Guard, as that thing can be scary with a ton of legendary creatures on the battlefield. I don't really think that Cabal Paladin is really that good, so I would take that out if I were you. I would also take out Urgoros, the Empty One (a 4/3 for 6 mana doesn't sound to good, and his ability is meh). Arvad the Cursed is really good in this deck, but I would only have 2 of him in here because you don't want 2 of the same legendary in your hand. Zhalfirin Void should be taken out as you are not running a colorless mana deck. Cabal Stronghold is a little slow for me, but you can keep it in there if you want to. Angel of the Dawn doesn't seem the best as you have to spend 5 mana (which, most of the time, means you can only play that creature) just for a +1/+1 until end of turn. Divest is a good card, but I really think it would be more disappointing to have that be drawn then maybe another knight card in your deck (plus this deck has to get down to 60 cards anyways). I would also get rid of Forsaken Sanctuary for more Isolated Chapel.

TL;DR: Remove: 2 Eviscerate, 1 Cast Down, 1 Urgoros, the Empty One, 1 Arvad the Cursed, 2 Zhalfirin Void, 1 Angel of the Dawn, 1 Cabal Stronghold 1 Divest, 2 Forsaken Sanctuary Add: 4 Murder, 2 Benalish Honor Guard, 2 Isolated Chapel Add (to sideboard): 2-4 Cast Down

Again this is just my recommendation. If you find that some of the cards you are playing with that you feel down have a big enough impact to help you win, then you should take those cards out and add in either a multiple of a card that you know is good in your deck, or try an entirely new card. Sorry that this is long, but I wanted to explain my reasoning for each suggestion. Nice deck you have here (giving it a +1) and good luck at FNM!

The version I ended up playing today had 1 Metallic Mimic, no Benalish Honor Guard, only 2 Seal Away, and 2 Cast Out in the mainboard. It worked pretty okay, definitely loved the mimic. My sideboard needs work though because I have stuff in there I won't every actually side in against anything and that's not great.

You got a solid base. I would drop Benalish Honor Guard and pick up a couple Metallic Mimic. I also recommend Cast Out for removal because the deck is light on one drops so you can just cycle it in search of your land or History of Benalia. In the late game, Cast Out is an awesome top-deck because it can remove artifacts like God-Pharaoh's Gift or planeswalkers or get rid of recursion creatures like The Scarab God or Rekindling Phoenix.
