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.)

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.

I'd cut: Tainted Field and Tainted Peak . You need way more swamps for these to not be colorless lands a lot of the time. Basilisk Collar seems pretty marginal. It's just low impact, especially without pingers. Bloodcrazed Paladin also seems pretty bad. Diamond Knight isn't really playable in monocolor, much less three color. Cabal Paladin is also bad. Prismatic Lens isn't a good 2 cmc mana rock. Add the Talismans over it. Righteous Confluence is on theme, but also just kinda terrible. 3 knights for 5 mana at sorcery seems bad, even if you're exiling an enchantment as well. Steelclaw Lance seems too low impact as well.
I'd add: Nomad Outpost . And just generally, since so many of your knights have heavy color requirements, I think you need a very good mana base. I like all of Gus's suggestions for knights to add. Sylvia Brightspear should also probably be played if you're playing her partner. She's also solid with the swords of. Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Silverblade Paladin seem better than a bunch of your other knights. Balan, Wandering Knight also seems pretty decent. It's better than Twinblade Paladin at the very least. I think you should also be running a bunch of the good non-knight equipment creatures. Sram, Senior Edificer is great card advantage as is Stonehewer Giant . Merciless Eviction is imo a must play in w/b. Likewise, I think Sunforger is a must play in W/R

I built a similar deck in Mono white. Personally I don't think Angelic Gift is all that useful. You could try running Ignite the Beacon I found it was helpful in making sure that I would getting Ajani, Strength of the Pride on the field. Three copies of Twinblade Paladin are in the Ajani Coreset 2020 Precon.
