I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.

Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.

I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

I made a similar deck a while ago and I found that Court Homunculus, Glint Hawk and Ardent Recruit make for a fine initial creature base, while using Bone Saw and Ornithopter gives you both stuff to bounce to Glint Hawk and a fine vector for equipment. If you run a lot of humans, Bonds of Faith is a sneaky good aura that works as either a Pacifism effect or a buff for your guys.

Hello !

You can use Bonds of Faith instead of pacifism You can go x4 Favored Hoplite, same as Hero of Iroas You can also consider a bunch of instant to protect your creatures or draw some cards as it synergises also with "Heroic" if it targets your creatures, I personally suggest Defiant Strike and Emerge Unscathed. For the enchantements, you can go x4 Ethereal Armor aswell, maybe a bunch of Gryff's Boon and I greatly recommend (even if it's a little bit more expensive) Hyena Umbra

Love the list. I think i will make this deck because you inspired me.

What do you think about Bonds of Faith, or Guardian of the Guildpact as sideboard fodder?

Here's some ideas.

Replace the Butcher's Cleaver or Slayer's Plate with a Loxodon Warhammer. Same Cost, same equip, same damage bonus, but not having a restriction on the creature type and the additional trample are pretty nice.
I've always felt that Bonds of Faith is better in a 60 card deck than Commander. Too many threats and it suffers from the same problems that all Auras have.
The Citadel Siege feels out of place. I get the point of the two +1/+1 counters each combat, but if the board is empty, it becomes useless.

Please consider the following equipment (in no particular order):
Vulshok Morningstar
Manriki-Gusari
Illusionist's Bracers
Sword of Kaldra
Konda's Banner
Umezawa's Jitte
Basilisk Collar
Argentum Armor
Deathrender
Nim Deathmantle
Bonehoard

Creatures to consider:
Auriok Salvagers
Sanctum Gargoyle
Treasure Hunter
Sun Titan

Additional cards to look at:
Forbidding Watchtower
Sejiri Steppe
Kjeldoran Outpost
Dread Statuary
Mobilization

I like Bonds of Faith in white voltron because the card can boost one of your creatures or act as a Pacifism on an opponent's.

You are probably right to keep the Standard Bearer in your meta.Thinking about it the Cavalry Pegasus would probably go into the deck instead of 2x Gust Walkerssince it provides Flying wich is redundant with Gust Walkers exert ability, but im not intirely sure if the Cavalry Pegasus is worth going down this great threat. However, if your meta has alot of Mono-B Control in it it could go in instead of Armadillo Cloak or Bonds of Faith since these beiing auras trade 1 for 2 vs a removal spell when used on an allied creature.Could be worth a try!
