Whenever you gain life, put a +1/+1 counter on Twinblade Paladin.
As long as you have 25 or more life, Twinblade Paladin has double strike. (It deals both first-strike and regular combat damage.)

Twinblade Paladin Discussion

I agree with the comments above. Add 2 more Charmed Strays, or take them all out. Probably take them out, as they're pretty low-power. Other clunky/low-power cards to take out are: both your enchantments, Gideon's Company, Soulmender, and Twinblade Paladin.
Instead, add some cards from the new set like Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Heliod, Sun-Crowned (before he's banned), Alseid of Life's Bounty helps with removal too (as does Gods Willing for some more protection). A lot of these are much higher power than your current list, and will help you win games much more often.

Also Twinblade Paladin could be good. (i don't have any experience playing this kind of deck, although i can still see ways to improve it.)
I would also consider taking out Ajani's Aid , and Ajani, Valiant Protector , and replacing it with something like Squadron Hawk . Squadron Hawk will get you out more creatures to trigger Soul Warden to pump Ajani's Pridemate if you decide to add Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant .

21- Plains 4 - Sungrace Pegasus 4 - Knight of the White Orchid 4 - Aerial Responder 3 - Ajani's Pridemate 3 - Fencing Ace 2 - Stone Haven Medic 2 - Gideon's Company 2 - Twinblade Paladin 2 - Impassioned Orator 4 - Desperate Lunge 4 - Gideon's Reproach 3 - Riot Control 1 - Ajani, Inspiring Leader
Any help would be appreciated; whether cards need to be replaced or maybe even going multi-colored instead of mono white.

This is no longer Standard-Legal. Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs , Blessed Light , Blight Keeper , and Sunset Pyramid have all rotated out. I suggest cards like Mortify , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Twinblade Paladin , Gideon's Company , and Bloodthirsty Aerialist to replace those cards. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and The Haunt of Hightower could be cool as well.

I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!
Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:
Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .
When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.
