Champion of the Flame Discussion

Heya, I need help to properly build up a enchantment/aura matters deck focusing around Champion of the Flame , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame and Kor Spiritdancer . My original idea was to combine it with the magemarks, which led to Mardu Magemark as my base for the deck.
But the more I look around what I want to include, the more I lose focus of the deck and stumble into another cool combos I want to include. (see the side/maybeboard)
I know some of these aura decks tend to use hexproof/unblockable creatures (e.g. bogle), but that isn't Timmy enough for me ;)
I'm open to splash into other colors (green have some nice tools for this kind of deck). Budget for this deck should be somewhat around 100$.
I hope I can get a more fast Feedback to polish the deck idea.

There are several cards that when I play don't show up. They just appear as a fully black card. I've had this happen Vampire Envoy , Oneirophage , Thundering Djinn , Spinehorn Minotaur , Fists of Flame , and Phantasmal Form .

I like the deck idea. I'd suggest adding more protection like Hyena Umbra since removal can wreck an aura-based deck like this. Also, you'll find that you empty your hand pretty quickly with this low of a curve, so you might add some card draw with Kor Spiritdancer or Mesa Enchantress . Finally, I'd suggest dropping Hero of Iroas since all your auras are so low on the curve already; if you're looking to win quick, Champion of the Flame might be a better option.

i think Umezawa's Jitte will eventually be unbanned as well, so thats the first obvious equipment. the "swords" cycle like Sword of Feast and Famine are also really good, especially on double strikers. modern has a ton of good creatures that can hold equipment, and just so many ways of "cheating" those equipment onto a creature, i'm honestly surprised someone hasn't figured out a way to break it already.
i'm honestly baffled by people here saying that modern doesn't have good equip users. theres Kor Duelist , Swiftblade Vindicator , Vault Skirge (an artifact creature that helps get metalcraft working for Puresteel Paladin or Mox Opal ), Champion of the Flame , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Kazuul's Toll Collector .
lets say you have a double striker equipped with Sword of Feast and Famine , and a Sigarda's Aid in play. you attack, deal first strike damage, untap lands and opponent discards a card. then before normal damage is dealt you flash in an equip (such as a different sword), attach it to the creature for free, then deal normal damage and trigger the effects of both swords. seems good to me.

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!
