Moment of Craving Discussion

I like your deck build going here, I love vampire decks, as for info on Vampires and tokens, here's the things I like so far with yours
- Procession and radiant destiny to increase the effects of doubling and adding bonuses + vanquishers banner
- Call to the feast is definitely a must have for this, not sure if your interested but there's also Queen's Commission as well
- If you could, try earning a Legion's Landing Flip card because thats a amazing card for vampires and tokens especially
Here's my advice: I'd lower off some creatures a bit like Sadistic Skymarcher (costs 4 or 3 depending on choice but flying is nice with it except very little difference from aspirants for a quick token deck build), Ravenous Chupacabra (find sorceries or instants to slay off creatures, not saying its bad but vampires), Voracious Vampire (since its effect triggers only once and for a 3 cost it wont help with tokens much as it only affects 1 vampire for 1 turn). I'd also 2nd removing Moment of Triumph like Exodus2727 mentioned. In your case you'll want vampires to be fast, skymarcher aspirant to 4x, vicious conquistador to 4x kind of thing because it makes city's blessing that much easier. Keep Elenda, the Dusk Rose for sure, I even prefer 2 of them if you can manage to get two of them.
If your also trying a life gain method with Twilight Prophet I'd honestly take it out if for that reason, but for ascend reason would make sense. Thats up to you, Personally myself, I'd take it out. Moment of Craving isnt a bad card but not best suited for a token deck nor is it extremely useful later on. Charge isnt bad either but with all the anthems you already have, its not completely necessary. I mean Legion Lieutenant, Radiant Destiny and the banner are all you need really.
Forerunner of the Legion I'd rather have Dusk Legion Zealot for card draws, may cost 2 mana but as I mentioned to rid of quite a few of things, you'll only want to add in cards you really need, thats where zealot comes in handy.
Here's my short version because I write to much, thanks if you read if so
Take out - Mo craving, Mo triumph, charge, prophet, sadistic skymarcher, voracious vampire, chupacabra, arterial flow is better with more of but I prefer to take it out, and possibly vicious offering in replace for a Gideon's Reproach or even Walk the Plank sorcery. Fatal Push if can get a couple of those.
Have - 4x skymarcher aspirant, 4 vicious conquistador, 2 elenda (if can), 4x martyr, 4x legion lieutenant, keep mavren at 2x or 3x, 4x dusk legion zealot, maybe 2x-4x Queen's Commission from earlier mentioned. 2x-3x Legion's Landing Flip radiant destiny 3x or 2x of depending, 2x procession, and gruesome fate. The rest should be lands
I hope this helps out a little bit or maybe to much because I tend to overdo writing alot.

I will say it again: 8 cards that return from the graveyard is to much! Your deck isn’t bout getting big creatures in the graveyard to get them back.
In this case you want some extra card advantage and get some creatures back. Bear in mind that your deck wants its creatures to stay on the table, so you could end up having useless cards in your hand.
Your Famished Paladin requires the stars to align. I mean it’s conditional and you would prefer to have it untapped before your combat step: hence again my suggestion for Moment of Craving as it might kill a blocker and it will untap it whenever you want (instants can be cast during the oponents turn)

Moment of Craving might be the removal piece you want. Having instants allows for more control

Thanks @zenozia! As a newer MTG player, I'm thankful for any feedback.
Some of the upgrades I wanted were the exact cards you mentioned, like Disallow instead of Cancel, Vraska's Contempt instead of Hour of Glory and Never, Fatal Push instead of Moment of Craving, and Fetid Pools instead of Desert of the Glorified and Desert of the Mindful. Unfortunately, they are just out of my budget at the moment.
I do think additional Torrential Gearhulk's would help my deck quite a bit. I had considered Duress, but I have preferred using more counters and removal. I'm still unsure if I should include cards such as Censor and Bontu's Last Reckoning.

Moment of Craving would be a good card to add to this deck.

What Purple_Mage sorta said. It depends on what deck you want really. If you Want agro, might aswell just run mono white aggro which takes away from the Knight based Aspect. I love my tribal decks and I assume thats what you are going for. - Saying this again but FOUR Knight of Grace. It is a great 2 drop and curves very nicely into History of Benalia.
FOUR Benalish Marshal. If you are going for the Tribal OR Aggro Strat, Benalish marshal is so good to just pump up your creatures, as well as him being a knight itself.
Kwende, Pride of Femeref Depends on how you want the deck, he is worth 2-3 Spots if you are going Tribal with first strikers. If not, dont bother.
Sorry to say but.. Knight of New Benalia is kinda outclassed by other cards for your deck, Adanto Vanguard (even good in tribal) and Knight of Grace (first strike). It also dies to everything (even without combat damage), Shock, Goblin Chainwhirler, Fanatical Firebrand, Fungal Infection and Moment of Craving are all very common cards.
Dub... You seem to love that card, and thats ok. In limited (Prerelease/Draft) it is amazing. However in Standard, it is kind of lackluster. First of all, all your creatures are knights already (aside from Lyra Dawnbringer and Adanto Vanguard) which dont even need the History of Benalia Buff. Second of all, Enchantment removal is quite common, as well as removal and bounce spells which all make your 3 mana spent for nothing. Third - When your creature dies, the enchantment is destroyed, if you really want buffs to creatures, Forebear's Blade could be a good idea.
Removal is a good option, get rid of some of those silly combat tricks and run a few Seal Away and Baffling End, you needed a way to get rid of big creatures like Hazoret the Fervent. Settle the Wreckage is also very good.

I appreciate it multimedia thanks for the upvote.
I have tested all 3 of the sideboard options you went over rather extensively. Negate+Duress is 2 cards to do less than Lost Legacy-negating the card disadvantage in most cases. Sorcerous Spyglass is a dope card I currently use as sideboard in my mono-white midrange. I have not tried it in this build.
That said, Moment of Craving is really strong against mono Red, green and b/r aggro decks. The 2 life gain cant be over stated in getting to the late game an assisting with card advantage against the faster decks.
