You're very heavy on the 4-drop slot. I would recommend cutting the Approach of the Second Sun, since you should be trying to win by bringing your opponent's life to zero. Anointed Procession is cool, and can be powerful, but it relies on you following it up with other cards. THough pricey, this should be History of Benalia as this card does not depend on being followed up by another card and produces more Knights on its own.
You should be running 4 of the Dauntless Bodyguards in the maindeck, they should not be in the sideboard. You're going to be wanting to swarm the enemy in a flood of chivalry as fast as possible, and a few amazing 1 drops can help you out that way. Accorder Paladin, Knight of Glory, and Sigiled Paladin are all great 2 drop knights that help you out in attacking strong and early. Knight of the White Orchid can act as ramp, but is also a decent beater.
Mirran Crusader is extremely powerful and you should definitely be running 4 of this one.
Vona, Butcher of Magan is really cool and can give you an answer to nearly anything, and she helps pay for herself with that lifelink.
You'll also want to use some of black's card draw capabilities, since card advantage is definitely white's biggest weakness. Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of life to draw some cards with Dark Bargain, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, or Damnable Pact just to name a few.
For your sideboard, cards like Duress are very important if you're running black, I would recommend running 3-4 of these in your sideboard, since you have no other hand disruption. Celestial Purge is pretty popular, as is Timely Reinforcements. Vraska's Contempt and Anguished Unmaking can help you deal with opposing planeswalkers, and Unmaking hits any troublesome non-land, Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, and Zealous Persecution are very strong sideboard options as well.
Let me know if this was helpful or would like to know some of the reasoning's behind the suggestions!

Look, All I’m saying is people are underestimating teferi, I don’t understand how blue/white Control lost popularity after rotation and I definitely don’t understand why for some reason people think that blue/white Control needs to become jeskai.
It makes no sense to me as few cards that blue/white Control ran rotated out. If you really felt like the deck needed a third color because you don’t like the removal available to you then that’s fine, but you should be playing esper, not jeskai. You get so much more in black then you do red. Vraska's Contempt for recurring threats and planeswalkers. Thought Erasure for a turn 2 powerful discard spell. Connive/Concoct for a steal removal spell and possible recursion if needed. Notion Rain is just a good draw spell. Not to mention Cast Down is a solid two mana kill spell.
You get so much more out esper then you do jeskai. So I don’t understand why jeskai is seeing so much more play then esper or blue/white control

Nice deck, Try considering cards like Cast Down for additional removal and Make a Stand for sideboard ATLEAST. I'd board a few Lyra Dawnbringer for the added edge against mono-red frenzy decks. Seal Away should be something you consider for board at least. I'd drop 1 Midnight Reaper and maybe even Aryel, Knight of Windgrace as often times VK's double strike ability will often be your win con.

Divest would help as a 1drop, Cast Down as 2 drop, Vraska's Contempt is of Course strongest but expensive(cost and cmc),... Thief of Sanity would help you too i think, i‘d replace The Notion Rain with thief. Lose spybug for Runaway Steam-Kin, add 2 Risk Factor 1 Lightning Strike 1 Vraska's Contempt, or just replace the pushes with 2 Cast Down 2 contempts,...

I can’t believe I didn’t think of Cast Down. Thanks David_H18. And I know Gruesome Menagerie doesn’t look like the best, but just recurring two or three creatures for extra value is the little push I need to finish a game

How do you normally win with this deck? It seems like if your opponent can deal with Doom Whisperer and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager
Flip you're kind of dead in the water, hoping to top-deck removal spells.
You probably don't need 4x Disinformation Campaigns, and I personally don't see the merit of Dead Weight in any deck running board wipes like Ritual of Soot or Golden Demise. You could cut 2x Campaign, both Weights, 2x Vraska's Contempt, and add in some cheaper, single-target removal like Cast Down, Murder, Lava Coil or Fight with Fire.
I've had a lot of success running Gilded Lotus - I put it in every midrange deck, if possible. Playing a Lotus on Turn 5 still leaves up mana for a Murder, Sinister Sabotage, Golden Demise, Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin, etc. I've also really enjoyed running a couple Tetzimoc, Primal Deaths, as he gives you something to sink excess mana into and he usually forces your opponent to play more reserved.
I would also cut down on 2x Discovery / Dispersal and 1x Search for Azcanta Flip, put in 1x Connive / Concoct and 2x Chemister's Insight/Dark Bargain/Notion Rain.
I would also add in Shocks and/or Lightning Strikes, but I think I'm turning this into my old Grixis Midrange I played when Tamiyo, the Moon Sage was in Standard. 6 years ago. Damn... where does the time go? TELL ME.
