Hey, a fellow Renegade Rallier lover! xD Always been one of my favorite janky cards. Underrated!
Awesome idea, awesome deck! Thanks for sharing!

The problem is that toolboxes are slow. They take a lot of time to get into gear.
I mean, Vannifar on t3 can win on turn 4 in Modern. I think even in Pioneer it can do a lot:
t4 turn Mystic into Corridor Monitor, untap Vannifar. Sac monitor to grab Renegade Rallier which nabs Monitor to untap Vannifar. Sac Rallier to get Breaching Hippocamp and untap Vannifar. Sac Monitor for another Rallier and then another Hippocamp. Sac a hippocamp for Prophet of Kruphix.
From there there's a ton you can do. You can probably put half your deck into play at that point if you do it right.
However... that's not near fast enough. It's easy to get a removal spell and blow Vannifar up right before the opponent untaps to combo off with it.

So I linked Birthing Pod as an example of a good toolbox deck to give you an idea of what makes a toolbox deck works. The elements are a solid gameplan without the engine card. An engine that generates a lot of advantage in cards or mana. And having cards to attack hand, board and graveyard tied to other useful effects.
As someone who plays a lot of Eldrazi in Modern and Legacy TKS is a great but in Piomeer you have to consider the cost to it. It requires you to either play suboptimal lands of which there are only enemy versions (Pain Duals), the Amonkhet Sac a Desert lands which also ping you to use coloured, wastes which is basically adding an extra colour. The cost is a lot for a single card. You cant even use a mana dork for it. And I didnt say anything about Sylvan. You need to develop your mana and its an OK card for that. The other cards mentioned pull your deck in a very diffrent direction away from tutor. Playing stuff to turn off counter spells isn't so hot when you are playing the role of the control deck. The others are low impact or also pull you aggro not control when your engine uses 5+ mana to get started. Rites wants you to flood the board with creatures etc.
So if you wanna play Vannifer you actually have hit upon some very good cards for the deck. Knight, Prince, etc. Mirror Image is OK but a bit more situational.
Bounding Krasis and Hippo let you turn any 2 drop into a 5 drop in a single turn. Siege Rhino pushes you from bant to 4c so your manabase needs to be red hot but is powerful beater and has a decent etb.
This is the sort of deck where your snakey friend can work as a 1 of. As can Tithe Taker as a useful effect that leaves a body behind.
You run 1 drop mana dorks and maybe some sylvans to help make turn 3 Vannifar.
Other cards to consider Scavenging Ooze. Hostage Taker, Sin Collector if you go black. Voice of Resurgence is a 2 cost who punishes counterspells and leaves a body behind. Felidar Guardian flickers creatures and land for mana. Renegade Rallier pods in off a 2 drop and revives any 2 drop in gy. Eldritch Evolution or Chord of Calling adds an extra form of toolbox and Collected Company gives advantage if built around a little more. If you diversify your card base to run useful enchantment creatures/artifact creatures and run fetches etc Traverse the Ulvenwald can also be useful and it then gives you access to non pod cards like Walking Ballista.
For Mardu toolbox I dont see a solid engine unless you are talking Wishclaw + Skybind. It would be neat to see a Lurrus of the Dream-Den / Open the Armory type toolbox with access to stuff like Mire's Grasp and the associated draw engines. But that suffers from some power issues.

Necroplasm is interesting.

I'm surprised you aren't running Renegade Rallier as it is one of the best way's to set up Tayam loops, and Angelic Renewal is an instant with with it+ an additional way to instant with with Avenger of Zendikar
