Will possibly. "Would possibly" introduces doubt regarding whether it is possible for you to use one of the sentences. It means "I Would be in the position of possibly using one of the sentences, but [for an unstated reason] I am not in that position, indicating that it is impossible for you to use one of the sentences." , whereas "will possibly" only introduces doubt about whether you will use one of the sentences. "Would" indicates a change of mind- for example: I would eat the ice cream, but it has melted.
