Personally, I very much like Lone Rider Flip and It That Rides as One Flip. It's just a great budget card, not only in mono-white, but in Orzhov-Odric and Boros-Aggro. If you want my take on it, though, I don't think that with this deck it would be good. There's not enough Westvale Abbeys to use properly the Hanweir Militia Captain Flip's flipped ability correctly, imo, and not enough lifelink/lifegain. Another thing that messes me up a bit, you don't have any madness output, but there's a lot of Madness cards in your deck... If you were playing full-on Orzhov, then it would make sense to play Alms of the Vein and Call the Bloodline, but really you're just losing some potential synergy I think. Now, how do you fix that ? Well, some very good cards that I like in standard right now are Harsh Scrutiny, and Chaplain's Blessing. You can remove creatures from your opponent's hand really fast, and disrupt their game, or heal yourself for five to flip Lone Rider Flip.
Anyways, best of luck mate !

Blueberrypop Lambholt Pacifist Flip is a great card but it doesn't fit the goal of this deck which is to provide an equally dangerous threat in It That Rides as One Flip which is a lot easier to flip into with this current build. I may consider that after Den Protector rotates but because I never play Den Protector unless she can be flipped on the same turn, she will likely be replaced by a combination of Archangel Avacyn Flip and Verdurous Gearhulk or another 5 CMC card that can provide a big advantage.

Thank you for the input Teknetic. As I stated, I have not play tested it as of yet, but the thought behind Lone Rider Flip is he can apply pressure when needed, or block for my walkers, but his main role is to draw out removal spells so my other creatures can flourish. I agree completely with the Geier Reach Sanitarium suggestion, will be making that addition. Mirrorpool on the other hand I believe works here, again have not play tested, but it can copy It That Rides as One and Thalia's Lancers, or in times of need, it can copy Archangel Avacyn Flip for indestructible, or it can copy Bruna, the Fading Light to fetch Avacyn for the same reason. With all the life gain in the deck, it's also feasible to copy Anguished Unmaking. Finally, I prefer From Under the Floorboards over secure the waste simply due to I feel it fits this deck better. It jives well with Liliana's emblem, feeds Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and transforms Lone Rider Flip.
All of this is just theory however, since I have not had a chance to play test. Your returning thoughts after my explanation for my card selection is appreciated.

Nice deck, I like these deckbuilding constraints! Attempting to stick with the concept written above, to add trample to your creatures, you could use It That Rides as One Flip (the transformed side of Lone Rider Flip) or Chimeric Egg, and to add deathtouch, consider using Aurora of Emrakul.

maximum2945 The flashback cost of Lingering Souls requires black, thus the Godless Shrines and Windswept Heaths. The lifegain aspect of the deck is only to get the Ajani's Pridemates, Lone Rider Flips, and Serra Ascendants online. Gaining life in and of itself isn't going to win me the game ( Felidar Sovereign is just a waste of a turn since you'd pour all your mana into it and your opponent responds with a Victim of Night, Path to Exile, Cryptic Command, or any other form of removal. Not really a good card.). The idea is to set up big swings with It That Rides as One, Ajani's Pridemate, and/or Serra Ascendant by gaining huge life off of casting Lingering Souls or Spectral Procession with one or more of the soul sisters on the field. If/when that fails, beat them to death with the tokens you've made boosted by Honor of the Pure.
