I actually think that this is more in line with , both in terms of flavor and mechanically. The type of unity white wants is more like Alms Collector and Secret Rendezvous.

I think Sigarda's Splendor is the kind of thing white should have more of, along side investigate and tax effects.

Honestly most of these just depend on the deck, Steadfast Paladin is weak in constructed, though it is very good in sealed, like the pre-release tomorrow. Nadaar, Selfless Paladin is good in a dungeon deck like caseys, but outside of that i think it is kind of a wasted slot because dungeons dont get you a lot of value unless you focus spamming them. Priest of Ancient Lore is good in any deck trying to utilize blink effects because you can utilize it's enter the battlefield effect multiple times a turn, but as a one shot usage there are much better cards than a creature that replaces itself with a card and gives you one life. The most versatile cards you have in this list are Alms Collector, Sanctifier en-Vec, Weathered Runestone, Ivory Mask, Paladin Class, and Doomskar. These can fit into most decks that find themselves running white, but even then you dont want them in every white deck. Many of the other cards are incredible in certain decks and absolutely useless in others, so it just strongly depends, you know?

I have been toying around with this deck idea and I have some suggestions now!

Lotus Vale and Lotus Field are invaluable with Hokori

I would drop howling mine for Endless Atlas, other card draw are War Room, Alms Collector, Esper Sentinel, Mangara, the Diplomat, I have been having a lot of games where the deck just grinded to a halt without something to refill it. Symmetrical card draw can work against you here so Howling Mine May not be good unless you have plenty of ways of tapping artifacts down.

Manascape Refractor is really good with the right lands (like the lotus lands)

Archaeomancer's Map helps with ramp

Archon of Emeria is super good, a better eidolon or can be run in addition

Sanctum Prelate to stop any annoying board wipes.

Solemnity isn't really needed unless you plan on playing Phyrexian Unlife as well.

This is what I have been working on using yours a blueprint: No One Wants to Play EDH With Me Now...

Alms Collector and any wheel will do the job. A la Hullbreacher style.

I do love the versatility that Giant Killer brings; the deck loves 1 cmc creatures, it’s instant speed removal, and in the cases when i don’t have Whitemane Lion or the like, it can still tap down problematic creatures. I always avoid creatures with tap effects, because I want Oketra to have reactive options (especially as i slot Winding Canyons back in, but it has a lot more going on for it. Anyways, I used to run it, and i think i’ll swap it for Solitude .

Palace Jailer i used to run and it never worked out well.

Alms Collector is a good option.

I was also thinking Cartographer's Hawk would be decent card advantage simply as repeatable ramp and it returning itself to my hand if i’m top decking or something. The big downside is that it has to wait to attack. Best case you get an extra land on T3 and still have a creature in hand for oketra? Seems pretty decent.

I've been wondering about Solitude myself--seems like it isn't doing enough work anywhere. Darn.

You know I love me some good Ixalan cards, but the Gateway definitely seems like it should be removed if you can push through the sadness of that whole ordeal.

As to suggestions: removal could be Giant Killer (repeatable with bounce effects), or potentially Bounty Agent if you can spare the turn it has summoning sickness. Fiend Hunter and Mangara of Corondor can be inordinately good with instant-speed bounce effects, due to some trickiness with their abilities that I'll only explain if you haven't heard of them before ;). Cavalier of Dawn might be feasible with your updated ramp package, you may need to play around with that.

Draw could be Alms Collector ? Or Palace Jailer , for draw and removal, albeit a slightly weak imitation of both?

Fun looking deck! I have a kind of long list of suggestions for you. Some of them are specifically suggested to deal with your draw problem, but not all of them. I will say that I wouldn't expect that you would try to fit all of these in here, and I'm also shyt at telling anyone what to cut from their own deck. So I'll drop this list here and let you make of it what you will.
