Ive been using Redstar Premier Blanc for the last several years, never really branching out. Im curious if I should use lavelin or another strain from Red Star, What are the advantages and disadvantages.

What is your favorite yeast and Why? I brew Mead only.

We all have different preferences.
My advice: Try some small batch experiments to find out what you like and what works for your process.

I have lots of favourite yeast, but most of them probably wouldn't work too well in mead. Since mead is a pretty specialist thing, you're really better off asking in the mead forum - or better still just having a bit of a read there. The trouble is that it really comes down to personal taste, but AIUI Lallemand 71B-1122 is a pretty good place to start for mead, and K1V-1116 is also popular.
