Teferi's Time Twist
Exile target permanent you control. Return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control at the beginning of the next end step. If it enters the battlefield as a creature, it enters with an additional +1/+1 counter on it.

And no, you would not get Mizzix's discount while she is phased-out. Again, a phased-out permanent is treated as though it doesn't exist.

I was finally able to get it to where I want it thanks to your help :)
I was a little ambitious with Burglar Rat as I was hoping it would over perform with Yarok interactions. If all the pieces are within reach I can potentially trigger up to a 4 card discard, but not exactly in line with what the deck wants to do, so I removed it to keep focus.
I decided on keeping Plague Mare as I feel its got high potential to keep me safe. Indestructible and hexproof tend to be pretty prevalent in our meta and this guy helps kill them by bring toughness to zero, while only targeting my opponents creatures. Yarok + any Flicker affect = -4/-4, which is a respectable one sided wipe. It's cheaper than In Garruk's Wake (which I opted to remove since I cant fish it out with pod effects), and helps me climb up the ladder. I also added Massacre Wurm since it had a price drop. They kinda act like child and parent here haha.
Took out Teferi's Time Twist cuz screw that guy.
Orc Sureshot was just as ambitious as Burglar Rat. I thought that since I'm creating so many tokens it might be cool to benefit and pick of giant threats on the board, but in playtesting he didn't impact very much and often times I ended up podding to move up to better pieces. I also removed Blood Seeker for the same reason.
I thought Sailor of Means would be cool for some burst mana, but it being temporary really feels lackluster. I run Pitiless Plunderer in my Korvold Deck and he is a power house for sure, but I don't feel like I kill enough of my creatures consistently enough for him to perform here. I added a Farhaven Elf to get some more permanent mana to play with.
All great suggestions, I appreciate you taking a look. I still owe you a few deck checks myself haha.

Some stuff that looks kinda underwhelming to me at first glance:
Burglar Rat Discard one card groupslug can hurt opponents' tempo, but seems a bit lack luster beyond turns 2-3, & can help decks like Alesha.
Plague Mare Softening up other boards and removing other creatuers sounds good. Unless you're consistently getting multiple ETBs per turn, seems a little lacking.
Essence Flux or Teferi's Time Twist. I'd be keep Essence Flux to keep curve lower to the ground. Time Twist counter is nice for some extra punch, but could be used to slot in a counter spell (that's just me tho).
Orc Sureshot Feels like it needs multiple ETBs to remove something, but I can see how it would be more for softening a target. Single creature target also feels a lackluster, especially compared to Plague Mare.

This deck leans really heavily on three drops. The mutate mechanic needs some lower cost creatures to get started. I see you have Slippery Bogle and Paradise Druid as low drop creatures that are hard to remove. You may want to find a few more. Gladecover Scout and Silhana Ledgewalker are good hexproof creature to add. Mana dorks are also good to mutate onto as well. Llanowar Elves et al. are fine, Birds of Paradise is probably better. I would cut some of your three drops to add some of these.
The balance between hexproof and indestructible seems like a challenge, but you kinda get both from Thrun, the Last Troll and Troll Ascetic. A few other higher cmc hexproof creature you may find interesting Witchstalker and Aven Fleetwing.
Teferi's Time Twist and other effects that blink creatures can make your single large "Voltron" creature into a small army.

Just returning any of the Gideon’s to the hand as a way to protect them with Void Snare as long as they are in creature form stacks Ozilith. The only true flicker is Yorion, and I’m drawing blanks on mana efficient spells that offer the same effect. Teferi's Time Twist is certainly being added.

Realistically, your best bet for protecting Gideon from targeted removal is going to be Teferi's Time Twist. In addition to protecting him it has nice synergy with the Ozolith itself. Again, not really a competitively viable play pattern, but certainly the best method to protect Gideon with an instant speed spell in such a deck.
Detention Sphere could be an interesting piece as well as it's flexible in a Yorion deck.
But the best pieces for Yorion to work with are the ones that set up flicker loops easily which can make for lots of mana free Gideon flickers over a sequence of turns such as Felidar Guardian, Charming Prince, and Saheeli Rai (some of which are legal in Pioneer). Saheeli lets you flicker with Yorion on your turn twice (activation and end step), while the Prince nets a flicker on opposing endsteps and your endstep. With both you'd get 2 flickers on your turn and one at the opponent's end step with Ozolith gaining 13 loyalty counters per turn cycle. While this is more competitive than anything else in all likelihood, it's still got some weaknesses in both play pattern and deck construction that can potentially be exploited. As true Copy Cat is banned in Pioneer this is likely the best bet to make a Gideon+Ozolith combo truly function as the individual pieces are easier to sequence (Ozolith on 1, Prince on 2, Saheeli on 3, Gideon in 4, Yorion on 5) though card intensive enough to be inconsistent, especially in an 80 card deck. The upside is that with such pieces many of them play nice with Yorion itself and can provide some nice value while also digging for the combo components with cards like Omen of the Sea and Arcum's Astrolabe (not to mention the Prince itself can scry provided there's another means to flicker Yorion).

Looks like a fun idea. I do remember seeing a few decks on youtube with these cards a year ago. I'm not too sure if Light Up the Stage is the best fit for this type of deck. You might want to think about some cards to protect your creatures such asTeferi's Time Twist or aNegate. Your guys have no way of attacking immediately and will be sitting ducks.Samut's Sprint or Maximize Velocity could put in some work. Either way, it does look fun. Good luck!
