Nice deck, Saccox! Once there are several copies of Mystic Redaction and/or Teferi's Tutelage on the board, each cycled card really cuts into the opponent's library. I would suggest Fractured Sanity for one of the other 3 drops, although maybe that would push the average price up too much. Curse of the Bloody Tome and Vizier of Tumbling Sands don't seem to pull their weight.

Misconception Thanks for the comment!
You are absolutely right about Commander's Sphere. I have trouble thinking about that when I'm only in two colors. I'll make that swap ASAP.
Lavaz is good, but I removed it at some point to fit something else in (though I don't remember what it was). Honestly, I like Dimir Doppelganger better. And I have a solid balance of grave robbing already. I may replace Wrexial, the Risen Deep with him at some point, because I don't usually get a lot of value out of Wrexial.
I hadn't heard of Sepulchral Primordial until just now, so I'll give that guy some consideration. The CMC is a bit steep, and I don't have a ton of ramp, which is by design.
Frankly, I've been thinking about removing Teferi's Tutelage altogether. It tends to sit in my hand. So if I do, I don't think I'd replace it with a similar effect.
Removal of any kind is always good, so if I do cut the Tutelage, perhaps Feed the Swarm could be what I could add.

Great Anowon deck!
Also, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is an amazing "graverobber", especially since you can change his form again and again, whenever anyone mills a creature.
What are your thoughts on Sepulchral Primordial?
Maybe you can make some space for Feed the Swarm for that sweet enchantment removal in Dimir, altough only at sorcery speed.

I like to lean into drawing with mono-blue mill because of cards you're already running like Psychic Corrosion and Teferi's Tutelage. If you go this route you can throw in Archmage Emeritus and other cantrips like Visions of Beyond and Quicken to chain-draw your spells. Teferi, Master of Time is also bananas because you can use his abilities on each of your opponents' turns, effectively negating one of the biggest downsides of planeswalkers in commander.
With Emeritus on the field, even your removal like Pongify and Rapid Hybridization replace themselves and even mill if you have one of your enchantments on the field as well. The same can be said of your counterspells.
Overall, this is a cool deck and I wish you luck with it!

I'm not very well versed in Pioneer and haven't played mill in a while, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
First things first, going over 60 cards is almost never a good thing.
About the cards themselves, here's a few things:
I really, really don't like Riddleform. It's very conditional and you kinda don't want to even consider winning with combat damage when playing mill. However, as I did in your other deck, I'll try to suggest things that work with your playstyle, even if I disagree. In this case, I have to say Riptide Chimera is better in every aspect. It's always a creature, has a bigger body and synergizes better with the constellation theme, since you can bounce things to redraw and remill every turn.
I'm not a huge fan of the cards you added for card draw. I see them as a bit too slow and innefective. From a quick search on Scryfall I have a few cards I believe you should consider. Wizard Class does basically the same as Font of Fortunes, but has better late game potential, especially considering you like having an alternative wincondition. Another thing I'd consider is Hard Cover. I know this seems very suspect, but hear me out. You want cheap enchantments to trigger constelation, which this is. You want card draw to see more cards in your deck, which this does. Additionaly, it increases the toughness of your creatures, enabling better blocks against more aggressive decks. Maybe The Modern Age Flip would be good, as it draws you cards and blinks itself, triggering constellation again. There are also enchantments that mill your opponents as you draw cards, such as Psychic Corrosion, Sphinx's Tutelage and Teferi's Tutelage, though I don't think that's the route you want to take with this deck. I know this paragraph is huge enough already, but I just have one more suggestion that's not already in the deck, which is Inventive Iteration Flip. It's interactions against the opponent and, when it flips, can prevent your opponent from casting certain spells.
Lastly, because I'm aware I write things almost the size of an article, Into the Story could be something to have in your mind, but not necessarily run.
To reiterate, I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to Pioneer, so a lot of the things I've said can be wrong. This is just my opinion based on a little bit of mill I've played on some quick searches on Scryfall. Hope this proves useful to you.

Just going to put some cards here I think you should add if you want to focus on Milling. The deck needs more big mill in order to win/turn on big creatures. Let me know if you want me to suggest cards to remove.

After. When Reforge the Soul (or any spell) resolves, you take all of its actions together. Everyone will discard their hand and draw seven cards. Your draw will trigger Teferi's Tutelage seven times, but the triggers don't go on the stack until Reforge the Soul finishes.
