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!

Interesting deck idea, i think you should capitalise on the whole historic mechanic, since you have a good engine base here, its just a bit messy. I think cards like Weatherlight and Board the Weatherlight would be useful here, as well as increasing Danitha Capashen, Paragon to a 4 of, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain to a 3 of, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame to a 3 of and Shalai, Voice of Plenty to a 2 or 3 of. Shes very strong. Of coarse this means dropping some non legendary creatures, like Champion of the Flame , Adanto Vanguard and Storm Fleet Sprinter , i like Siren Stormtamer in here for protection.
omg and you can use Urza's Ruinous Blast effectively too! Thats real nice.
Now with this Legendary synergy going on, I think 3 Blackblade Reforged is your best equipment! I'd drop the 2 Short Sword for the extra two copies. I also like Forebear's Blade over Sigiled Sword of Valeron so its up to you which one you want to run, but you'll want 2 copies over 1 of each, in my opinion. I like being able to move the equipment for free on Forebear, but making dudes with Sigiled Sword is good too. Your call here.
And yes, i hope you pull well for the land base, it will speed it up immensely!
Best of luck! +1 I'd like to see where you take this list. It looks interesting. If you got some time, i'd appreciate if you could give me some feedback on my deck? Song of the Conclave (Tokens)

Thx! Good idea, the instant speed of Fling isn't really (i think). Also with the lower cost you can finish of low health targets with a buffed Champion of the Flame or a different creature a bit easier.

Since black is so strong in the competitive meta right now and green has decent ramp, Vine Mare sounds like a decent addition. My best friend has a deck with Psychic Corrosion, Patient Rebuilding, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, and Kamahl's Druidic Vow. It's a tough deck to beat. The milling alternate win condition hurts. Your deck doesn't currently have enough legendary permanents to make the Vow worth it, but the other pieces are certainly effective. (My friend's deck also has black and plays Muldrotha, the Gravetide to effectively overcome the Vow's weakness by making all permanents playable. It's effective when he has the mana.)

=> Joe9 Thanks for your comment ! Your suggestions for post-rotation are welcome ! We don't know what cards we'll get from Ravnica, but we can anticipate the changes ! In particular, I'm afraid of losing Sram, Senior Edificer and Blossoming Defense, because Sram is a key to the deck, and Hexproof is difficult to set in GW. :/ If you're searching for a rotation-proof build of this, you can look to a Naya version, with Champion of the Flame and Valduk, Keeper of the Flame. I also tried a Bant version, more control, with Psychic Corrosion, Patient Rebuilding, Tatyova, Benthic Druid and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria (maybe a sweet overwhelming Splendor for the fun ^^ ), but for the moment I don't have the cards, but it looks really cool !
