Tibalt, Rakish Instigator- Moved to maybe may add to side board to stop life gain deck if they're a thing in pioneer
Tezzeret, Artifice Master- Moved to Maybe
2xAbsorb-I that TriusMalarky said to have Absorb but than i remembered Render Silent and put both on here for know I will get rid of the weaker one, gaining life is nice but stopping players from casting other spells is too nice to ignore but im sure how many deck will have more than one spell per turn to be played in pioneer
1x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon- For big finisher
2x Spark Double- Mostly for fill but being able to copy planeswalkers is a nice boon though for 4 mana might be too much
Still going to find room for Wrath effects

With 16 different plansewalkers in the deck it may be difficult to have some consistency in the deck in terms of effects.
To start off, I'm surprised Kaya, Orzhov Usurper isn't in the list. She's good against RDW and exiling cards in the graveyard like Cauldron Familiar and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath plus possible Elspeth Conquers Death targets.
A copy of Garruk, Cursed Huntsman could serve as an additional late game threat and can kill off a creature for card draw if needed. Him together with Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Chandra, Awakened Inferno.
Teyo, the Shieldmage and Tibalt, Rakish Instigator feels slow and not as impactful compared to the rest of the suite. For The Wanderer, could try just running a single copy since her ability does not come too often unless mata calls for it.
Just my suggestions so far. Hope it helps.

Needs at least 22 land. also Curse of the Pierced Heart is an option as pseudo-additional red shrines that are not limited to 1 on board. Shrine of Burning Rage is also good and super on theme. Leyline of Punishment should be in the deck in higher numbers or not at all since you want to always open with it. As an alternative to Leyline consider Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. Quest for Pure Flame is also a card that is best at 4 because you want to see it early. Max out Lightning Bolt. It is just so good and somewhat on theme. Nice to see a Kamigawa/Ryusei type deck. Firebrand Archer could go to 4. -1 Torbran -4 Vexing Devil -2 Jaya -2 Leyline -1 Honden -2 Comet Storm -2 Chandra's Fury -4 Ember-Fist Zubera -1 Shock +1 Mountain +4 Ramunap Ruins +2 Tibalt +1 Lightning Bolt +4 Shrine of Burning Rage +4 Curse of the Pierced Heart +1 Archer +2 Quest for Pure Flame is one way to go about changing it.

Tibalt, Rakish Instigator is Synergistic because he creates sac fodder that deals damage when it dies.

Get rid of Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. He really doesn't do that much. If you don't want your opponents to gain life, add burn spells. You could replace him with more synergetic options.
Get rid of the taplands. The scrying is nice, but replacing those with shocklands would do wonders, even if you only add a few and have the rest be basics. Speaking of lands, you could use a Fabled Passage to thin out the amount of lands you draw. If that's too expensive, just use better utility lands. Gingerbread Cabin would work with your food tokens theme, and Witch's Cottage would return creatures to sac.
Good luck with the deck.

Upvoted, this deck looks pretty fun to play! It seems like you've already hit on most of the ways to deny life gain, and if you were looking for any other options, I've used Tibalt, Rakish Instigator and Rain of Gore in those slots with some success.

Im missing Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, Embermaw Hellion, Jaya, Venerated Firemage, Syr Carah, the Bold, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Tibalt, Rakish Instigator, Dwarven Mine, Castle Embereth, Shivan Gorge, but I will get them cheap, so that's not a problem.
