This looks like an interesting shell, however it could probably be made more efficient. As an example, why play a 5 mana artifact Cauldron of Souls when a 2 mana instant can perform the same trick Cauldron Haze. Another suggestion I have is Trinket Mage, which can fetch Walking Ballista, essentially giving you another way to pull out one of your win-cons. If you use the Mage then Sigil of Distinction also becomes a useful alt-win-con.

You also seem to be missing two obvious artifacts in the form of Coretapper and Energy Chamber, with perhaps a 3rd for card draw in Culling Dais. There is also the land Llanowar Reborn, which I think would be a better fit in your deck than Burst of Strength, the graft mechanic itself might be a good fit in general. Other cards to consider include Zameck Guildmage, Fate Transfer and Bioshift.

I played during tempest, where the spikes were first introduced and while they are cool, they were never inherently powerful, bar the surprise Spike Cannibal, which isn't modern legal. I realise I've thrown up a lot of cards and I wouldn't expect you to try and include them all, but hopefully this helps you improve your brew.

Personally, I'd drop the Sigil of Distinction and Spellbook in favor of Impact Tremors. Just makes more sense than an Artifact that nulls itself out over time, or even an unlimited had that you really don't want to be trading cards out of the way this deck allows.

Looking at your commander, I feel like Spidersilk Net, Sigil of Distinction, Paradise Mantle, Kite Shield, Cathar's Shield, and Bone Saw should pretty much be auto-inclusions along the lines of Accorder's Shield. They're all pretty weak, but as long as your commander is in play they replace themselves for free, so it's like getting to play a thinner deck with occasional fringe benefits. Most of them are pretty cheap to buy as well.

Sigil of Distinction seems made for her!

Coat of Arms as well.

Looks like a great start ahve a +1.

Here's my two cents:

I would drop Aegis Angel, she's good but to slow for Legacy. Put Kemba, Kha Regent and/or Balan, Wandering Knight in her place and add more equipment

I would drop Scourge of the Nobilis for Consuming Fervor

Some goodstuffs: Angelic Destiny, Basilisk Collar, Captain's Claws, Empyrial Plate, Fireshrieker, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Sigil of Distinction, Umezawa's Jitte, Blackblade Reforged, Brass Squire, and Vulshok Battlemaster, Silver-Inlaid Dagger

Suggested additions

Brion Combos

Staples

You'll almost certainly want to play some Wrath of God style board clears, since you will often be clearing your own board with Brion. Good options besides the aforementioned wrath:

There are some other good red staples to consider that are on theme with the deck:

Suggested Subtractions

You'll probably find Mana Tithe to be less useful in the casual EDH meta. Thornbite Staff seems equally underwhelming. Young Pyromancer doesn't really do anything in this list.

Basalt Monolith out, Dowsing Dagger  Flip in Im a bit meh about paying 3 for a manaboost next turn, but DD is a solid mana rock when transformed. Should be easy to flip.

Bladed Bracers out, Manriki-Gusari in Manriki gives more utility cast+equip cost the same

Clock of Omens out, Voltaic Key in Feels better value.

Golem-Skin Gauntlets out, Sai of the Shinobi in GSG good buffer, but prefer free equip of SotS

Gorgon's Head out, Darksteel Plate in GH faster as build up, but Plate is a game winner.

Neurok Hoversail out, Deathrender in flying good but cheating out a creature super fun.

Smuggler's Copter out, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in Not that many creatures so crewing could be a problem. Ugin is favourable board wipe and well, just ugin and awesome.

Stitcher's Graft out, Ghostfire Blade in since Ive added more colourless creatures GFB seems good and without untaping downside.

Sigil of Distinction out, Mox Opal in Metalcraft easy for free to cast mana rock

Temple Bell out, Hammer of Nazahn in Hammer frees up mana for casting>drawing more. Bell just draws for everyone once

Torpor Orb out, Elspeth, Knight-Errant in torpor conditional on meta, plus likely someone else will play. EKE provides, chumps, buff and ultimate is basically game ove
