With the vast amount of planeswalkers that you are running, Heart of Kiran would be devestating to your opponents in the deck.
Oath of Liliana usually doesn't perform as well as you would like, from experience.
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is a win more card usually in the deck, but it has its uses with heart because swinging a 4/4 and 5/5 for free each turn is ridiculous.

Mana was much smoother last night - although at least last night it felt like a land could be cut. The deck played much differently in that threats were deployed and then backed by the prison effects. Prior to, that was inverse and resulted in at times some boring game play. Painful Quandary was the over performer of the night, and made me regret cutting Sepulchral Primordial on multiple occasions. As the game waned, the 5 life "tax" was too much, and a lot of juicy Sepulchral targets were discarded. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar was a testament to how effective planeswalkers can be in a shell like this, which is rewarding because I've increased to 5 for that very reason - they often can run unchecked.

Here is the lint to the decklist.
-1 Void Shatter
+1 Collective Brutality : Really good card against aggro, usually kill a dude and gain some life.
+2 Radiant Flames : One of these replaces the Yahenni's Expertise that I mainboard in my version. The other one replaces the weaver of lightning, I just found the extra board wipe more useful.
+1 Ob Nixilis Reignited : Useful against control matchups, also really good against any midrange-y deck like B/G counters.
+1 Lost Legacy : Kills Saheeli combo.

I like the structure of your deck, and built something similar in Little People - Big Vehicles, which I haven't really play-tested. I just get the feeling that your side-board lacks counters against other decks. Against a Copy-Cat deck, you might want to change out your Built to ... cards for Authority of the Consuls. If your opponent is playing creatures with death-touch, Caught in the Brights will to well in the same slots. Other impact cards might include Declaration in Stone and possibly the Heart of Kiran/Gideon, Ally of Zendikar combination.

I recommend taking out the Ajani Unyielding and both Aethersphere Harvesters. Ajani is just terrible overall, and could be replaced with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. As for the Harvesters, there's no added benefit of running them. Your creatures are going to be big enough that you don't want to tap down anything to get less power. I'd replace those with Ridgescale Tuskers, even though it does slightly mess up the curve. Also, don't run the Solemn Recruit. Revolt isn't something that can always be triggered, and is too unreliable to run if it's not entirely built around. Definitely run Scrounging Bandars instead. Otherwise, +1 from me.

Tazri is a ton of fun to play. Go for it and build your own version, you won't regret it!
