Claiming to be an exemplary teacher at M.M.R. Vocational School, Marciana is the only reliable B2 healer aside from Blanc. While we may not be so sure what kind of example she is giving to her students, she teaches them that healing is important in most battles. Alongside a brief lifesteal and HP potency for two units on last bullet, as well as a teamwide heal when using Burst Skill, she offers a unique buff called Storage, which stores excess HP recovery by expanding the maximum HP limit (like a padding). This technically increases the maximum durability of every unit, allowing them to survive critical attacks that would otherwise erase their existence.
There is a noticeable difference between how Marciana's healing works versus other healers. She does not heal units on last bullet based on her HP, but instead provides lifesteal to everyone. This can be good or bad. On one hand, most attackers with consistent damage will definitely enjoy more healing from lifesteal as they can dish out a lot of damage, not to account the accompanying HP potency. Burst attackers like Maxwell and 2B may require precise timing to fully benefit from it, but with some manual gameplay, it may be manageable. On the other hand, supports and defenders unit whose ATK aren't buffed will have trouble benefitting from it. The amount of the lifesteal is quite low, so you need to pay extra attention to your units' HP all the time.
Thankfully, she does heal the team every rotation when using Burst Skill (tied to Skill 2). This is similar to Pepper's Burst heal, which has been proven to be extremely useful. Her Burst Skill also provides a buff called Storage, which stores excess HP recovery by expanding the HP limit (like a container placed on top of MAX HP). This also synergizes with her Skill 2, allowing her team to expand their HP limit when they are at maximum HP. The synergy between Skill 2 and Burst Skill is similar to SMary's Burst skill alone!
Last but not least, her Burst Skill also offers a slight DEF boost based on the caster's DEF. So far, this seems to be underwhelming in most contexts, so I will assume that the final line simply doesn't exist. Poof. Still, it reduces the overall amount of damage your team takes, which may be the turning point in some awfully specific cases.

Grants constant lifesteal
Provides increased HP limit through Storage
B2 Healer, which is rare and great for beginners
Allows units who have full HP mechanics to take tiny damage without losing buffs
Versatile and can fit in many teams
Last bullet mechanic allows Privaty to improve her healing power
Will help in clearing Elysion Tower if healer is needed
Healing capacity depends on the other units' damage output, which can be good or bad (inconsistent)
Storage buff does not naturally heal, so it may be useless at times
Despite being versatile, she competes with other B2 units who provide way more value
Storage buff isn't considered MAX HP, so it does not make skills based on MAX HP more effective
Last bullet mechanic discourages pairing with certain units who buff Max Ammo
