Evil explains why he's better than God.
Card draw; the deck needs card draw. Outside of cantrips, though, white has little beyond Mentor of the Meek, and he won't help much in your build (a hoot with tokens, though).
Skullclamp is ideal with tokens, but also serves as a bit of payback should someone try to kill a guy wearing it. There is a reason why it finds itself banned and restricted in some locales, formally and otherwise.
Sword of Fire and Ice is one of the top pieces of equipment, which is why it is a $30 card in most places, presuming you can find one; happily, it is returning in Modern Masters, albeit at mythic rarity. Infiltration Lens works, but is best on creatures that opponents want to block.

You said that it is better mid-late game, but I'd rather not get there as this is more aggro based. Personally I prefer the Porcelain Legionnaire because if the extra power.

One card I'd add, that I'm suprised nobody mentioned yet is Field Marshal. I'd replace the Honor of the Pure with him as he's easier to get rid of if the mentor gets "turned off"
Well even if you don't replace the pure with it I still think it's worth adding, the first strike can be more useful than its +1/+1.
About the Precinct Captain vs. Porcelain Legionnaire, Porcelain Legionnaire is all colorless, making it possible to cast it for nothing with 2 Daru Warchiefs. Precinct Captain is all white and would not be affected by Daru Warchief's mana cost ability.
