Auras attached to permanents you control have totem armor. (If an enchanted permanent you control would be destroyed, instead remove all damage from it and destroy and Aura attached to it.)

Umbra Mystic Discussion

You could mention that cEDH is almost exclusively dominated by stax and combo. (under power levels)
Is, while mandatory for mill, not the ONLY color combo. The Mimeoplasm mill is a deck my casual side takes great joy in playing. (under subtheme)
Azami, Lady of Scrolls - you forgot the last S. (under commander)
"Combo is generally the best win condition." Not true. It's definitely the easiest, but the 'best' is a matter of opinion. (under the aggro problem)
Thrasios, Triton Hero - you forgot the first H. (under the colors)
Umbra Mystic is a HUGE white enchantment payoff. (under the colors)
I didn't know it was possible to mention blue draw without talking about Rhystic Study .
Combat Celebrant doesn't combo. It can only exert itself if it hasn't that turn.
Reins of the Vinesteed - you missed the third E- the first E in Vinesteed. (under the colors)

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!

If I were to cut a Buff, it would be Collective Blessing, which is more beneficial in a deck that runs multiple beaters, and just inferior to Celestial Mantle in a Voltron context. Maybe cut both and make room for Umbra Mystic?

Nice deck, your construction reminds me of my first version which was more Enchantress-draw based. Keep in mind that in those days not all cards in your deck where available. You can find that deck over here: [Rafiq 1.0] Enchantress Draw
Enchantments and Auras
There are a few enchantments i'd like to mention which I tried in my decks aswell and did not make it to the final cut (or at least the deck how I play it nowadays).
Armadillo Cloak I used to run this and also Unflinching Courage but I dropped them because in my playgroup people tend to scoop when you strike them lethal so you don't get the advantage of the lifelink.
I think you should replace these cards with cards who give better 'unblockable' bonus for instance Infiltrator's Magemark or Spirit Mantle who have a low CMC. Or maybe Drake Umbra which cost more but also gives better bonus.
Further your creature base. I also have tried cards like Herald of the Pantheon but I rather use a general ramp card than an card that only affects your enchantments. Same for Kor Spiritdancer who only triggers on auras. I would consider Knight Exemplar and Umbra Mystic who both help protecting your Commander.
Also I am not a fan of the Legendary-Enchantment Creatures. Bestow cost are mainly too high to cast and I think there are better options available. But if you want to stick to that theme that's okay and then you might consider Thassa, God of the Sea.
I see no planeswalkers in your deck and Bant has a few which really juice this deck up. One I am allready playing myself and the other one is on my wants-list. I suggest to try Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Estrid, the Masked they can be smashing. And if you are adding planeswalkers Shalai, Voice of Plenty might be a nice add.
You really need to add this one: Hunter's Insight this is a crazy card drawer in your deck. And I like cards like: Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate and Might of the Nephilim for the surprise (aka lethal) hit. They are cheap to cast and speed up the game.
Well this is all for now. I might review your deck later again. Maybe you can review mine in the latest version: [Rafiq 2.0] To Serve & Protect [cEDH]

I think you need more land. 36 is really the minimum for consistent play unless you commander is giving you access to land, in my opinion.
If you really want to fort up, Idyllic Tutor and/or Plea for Guidance to tutor up a Privileged Position+Sterling Grove nonbo, also consider Sphere of Safety, Fountain Watch, Archetype of Endurance, Umbra Mystic.
Starfield of Nyx could be a wincon once your fort was secure.
Best of luck!!

Not having your commander be a creature makes the deck very inconsistent. If I wasn't able to play Uril every game I probably wouldn't have won any of them. I would put either Tuvasa or Kestia as the commander.

As you have plenty of mana dork/land mana amplifiers/mana rocks, you should include Mana Reflection, as it does not state that only land mana is doubled but mana from all other permanents as well. Another advantage of Mana Reflection is that it does not just add 1 additional mana but doubles mana produced. This is good with the bounce lands that add 2 mana. It might not be very budget, but to me it is worth the extra expense. Extraplanar Lens could work. It would not work nearly as well as in a mono colour deck, but it is still useful if you are short on sources of a particular colour. Authority of the Consuls and Aura of Silence help with suppressing your opponents. Umbra Mystic for added protection. Finally, overwhelming Splendor to finish an opponent. I absolutely hate that card.

You wanted some advice on this deck; I do check the Commander app now and again. It is a solid deck idea but you are missing a few key pieces. Counterspells for one. Aura of Silence could also be a consideration. Another consideration is a favourite of mine: Umbra Mystic. She gives all Auras totem armour. Fable of the Wolf and Owl, Idyllic Tutor and Enlightened Tutor are worthy considerations. Snake Umbra, Hyena Umbra and Drake Umbra are on par with their sister umbra the Bear Umbra. It is a good deck idea though.
