First of all, what's your budget?
Now, cards I personally don't like in this deck:
Banefire , you need mana to spend on more than one spell, it's not synergic!
Magmatic Chasm , if your creature has trample or protection from a color, do you really need it?

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 have a few ideas for you on this.
Think about adding dive down in place of Chart a Course . There are other cards you can use for card draw and you need to protect vs. removal. I know it wrecks my day.
Dowsing Dagger is not a good card for this deck. Put in Curious Obsession in it's place for card draw.
Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is too expensive and if your stuff is going to the grave yard then your usually boned anyways.Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is a better option because of card draw.
Cartouche of Zeal is another good enchantment to think about. I know it rotates out soon, but while it is still in use it.
Storm Fleet Sprinter is an under-rated card IMO. Unblockable w/ Haste is always a pain and does benefit from all the enchants and equipment you have.
At the store I play at regularly you need a faster deck to not get rolled. This should help fill any holes you might see, especially vs control with Dive Down. +1

The overall base of the deck is solid, however you should be cutting some of the random 1-ofs if you get the chance. Tragic Poet, Serra Disciple and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aren't really the best cards for the deck. I would reccommend running 4x Dauntless Bodyguard, 3-4x Cartouche of Zeal and potentially making room for 2-3x Sheltering Light so that you can protect against removal when playing your auras.

For the cost of Bow of Nylea, you could afford 2 more rancors, which i’d recommemd as they work so well with magemark
Borderland Marauder feels stronger and better themed than berserker, who doesn’t seem that great.
Coordinated Assault is just straight up better than rally the forces, sp just run 4 of those assaults instead of slipping a rally in there
You probs only need 22 lands. I’d drop the cultivate and 2 lands and try to fit in 4 Cartouche of Zeal - they combo great with this deck!

Red Elemental Blast is not modern legal.
You want the full 4 Lightning Bolts, and likely 4 Boros charm and 4 Rift Bolt. If Goblin Guide is within budget, include it, or Monastery Swiftspear.
Cartouche of Zeal is likely not good enough for modern, as auras are bad, excluding Bogles.
Bomber Corps also seems slow. Earthshaker Khenra performs a similar role in removing blockers but is better on its own.

Thanks for the reply Immortalrock. I had also thought that equipment would be better as I could continue to use it. I would lose a bit of speed but gain more survivability (I don't know if that's a word lol) using the equipment cards. Would there be any other equipment that you would suggest?
How do you feel about Shield of the Realm? That would protect them from burn cards most of the time.
Consuming Fervor feels like the weakest out of the auras that I am using. If I have multiple in hand, then it works wonders, but I usually find myself wishing I had any of Arcane Flight, Cartouche of Zeal, or Curious Obsession for the extra abilities they contain.

this is great use of the blackblade since u have many legendaries to put it on. One thing I realized is that a deck like this really needs some removal and also anti-removal spells. For removal Seal Away and Abrade are the best options, and the only good anti-removal there is for white is Sheltering Light. Also Jousting Lance is kinda a bad card. you can sub it with 1 On Serra's Wings and 2 Cartouche of Zeals.
