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!

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.
