Looks fun! Why
? They both combo with Approach in the same way, but remand has more utility and draws you a card when you combo instead of gaining you 7 life.
If you do want to keep the Reversals in and you're facing as many whirza decks as you say you are, maybe consider embracing the jank and running a 1-of powerful artifact that you can tutor for if you reversal a whir? Something like a Heart of Kiran , or if you really wanted to meme on them a Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass naming Urza. I can only imagine a whirza player's face when you reversal their Whir, getting a needle and locking down their combo piece. Like an 100-for-1 value play.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun with the jank!

We had nine people for Pioneer this week.
There was a nice mix of decks - mostly all rejigged versions of old Standard decks.
I played Mono Red Burn but I'm still getting into how the deck best plays and I stuffed up a lot.
There was another Burn deck, an Approach deck, and an Izzet Phoenix deck.
Someone was playing a very original Selesnya Angels deck which was very difficult once it hit the mid game. With life link, Burning it to the group is not an option.
There was also a Gearhulks deck, and I don't know the rest. A couple of people had come to play from far away. Don't know if they will continue next time.
We are having prize support, which is nice. I cracked an Oko from an extra pack I bought on a whim.

Righteo, then. Here we go!
Just checking that you know the second time Approach of the Second Sun is cast, it must resolve in order to win the game. A lot of people don't realise that and get a nasty surprise when it is countered, and they don't win.
This deck absolutely creams my Cast a Shadow [Pioneer] deck, which is set up primarily to deal with Creature decks.
It struggles against my Monothopters [Pioneer] deck, which is a lot more aggressive.
Aggressive decks will be this deck's downfall. To that end, I think you need to get your curve a bit lower. You can do that by building a Sideboard.
Some spells you might want to consider for it are:
Essence Scatter - this is a brilliant spell which will shut down a lot of Creature dependent decks. It is one of my favourite counter spells and should be in all Control Pioneer decks, in either the main or side board.
Hope that helps.

Looks like a fun deck! I have some thoughts to share...
Liliana's Mastery seems unlikely to change game outcomes. If games are going long, I think switching up the removal, going for card draw or perhaps trying to snag one of the pro zombie Liliana planeswalkers would be better options. For card draw/filtering, Cemetery Recruitment is okay and real affordable, not sure off hand but the more expensive options would be, Smuggler's Copter comes to mind.
Time to Reflect seems too good not to use, at least in the sideboard. IMO that card is one of the reasons this deck is worth playing over like GB graveyard creatures or dredge. Doesn't help so much for attacking fliers I suppose. Maybe like 3 Fatal Push , 2 Time to Reflect , 3 Anguished Unmaking ? I guess if Aetherworks Marvel and planeswalkers are dominating the format then anguished unmaking is pretty key.
Also good (some you perhaps left out for budgetary reasons which I completely appreciate and relate to) Stitcher's Supplier Binding Mummy Metallic Mimic Relentless Dead In Oketra's Name Grasp of Darkness Dusk / Dawn Thoughtseize (I think Divest / Duress are stronger than Transgress the Mind , too, as they can hit 1-2 drops. Duress gets Hardened Scales , copter, Heart of Kiran , planeswalkers, marvel, all on turn one.)

I was going to say Wild Slash as well.
For your Sideboard I would suggest at least a couple of copies of Abrade
I will give you more comments once I've playtested this a few times.

Also, add more green mana. That circle in the top right of this page? That's waaay more unbalanced than any deck has a right to be.
It also doesn't seem like there's a lot of finishing power here. Pretty much your only sources of real damage are Oko and Mayor Dude Flip, both of which are situational and take time. Heart of Kiran maybe too.

Myth Realized , Smallpox , Flagstones of Trokair . consider it. Smallpox + Flagstones of Trokair = Porphyry Nodes ? ish... idk seems interesting. if you had graveyard synergy like Lingering Souls or something it would be even better. I like the deck. Heart of Kiran also seems good for a more aggressive strat in the sideboard maybe.
