This is the current deck I'm running because I don't have all the cards that I want for this and i've gone 25/2/0 in MTG Arena so far - I'm thinking of switching this up to UBR but this idea can really just work for any colors you prefer, I just Like the combo with white because of return creatures I need and low cost damage spells for creature removal similar to red but triggers at different times.
It's been 5 years since I've last played and I'm really enjoying this block so far in standard - any help is much appreciated.
As of release for Ravnica Allegiance Day one this is what I currently have for it, I'm just so sick of everything being so creature aggro based I figured i'd put together something to mess with people's heads if they play that way.

I was wondering: as this is a mono-white deck, why for 2 CMC not to replace Knight's Pledge with good old Crusade? True it is only +1/+1 instead of +2/+2, but it would pump all of your creatures instead of a single one, so if you play more than one it would have a better effect on your board.
Also be careful with not having any way to deal with artifacts or enchantments, because in Legacy you could face many broken cards of these types.

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a pop-up tag. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question. Righteous Blow
No, it won't kill your blocker before it blocks. A creature only becomes a blocking creature when it actually blocks, and that's when it becomes a legal target for Righteous Blow. The attacking creature it blocked will stay blocked (i.e. the attacker won't deal any combat damage to you unless it has trample).
It depends on exactly when your opponent casts Righteous Blow, but usually it will stop your creature from dealing damage. The "combat damage" step of combat comes after the "declare blockers" step of combat. If your opponent kills the blocker before the "combat damage" step starts, then it won't deal any damage to the attacker it blocked. It would be unusual for your opponent to wait until after damage is deal to cast Righteous Blow, but there may be an odd situation where it's the correct play.

21 Plains works, but you can add Secluded Steppe to cycle the flood every once and a while.
I guess Slash of Talons is more flavorful than Righteous Blow? I belive Sunlance is a better removal, but you can at least use them in the sideboard.Alley Evasion really benefits decks that have more ETB effects, you're better off with Gods Willing and Emerge Unscathed.
Expose Evil could be an upgrade to Djeru's Renunciation.
But, instead of that, let's captalize on the Griffin's Vigilance.Try Lashknife, Ramosian Rally and Orim's Cure

Redirect is more of a sideboard card.
