Important stuff:
Use of b reverses (2.07 & 2.24) - Both of these actually worsened your stage control and pressure by giving mario more stage presence and turning your back to him. Our b-reverses work best when we drift into the opponent with the charge rather than away.
Use of aura sphere - generally not the best idea to shoot it in neutral especially against mario who can reflect it. AS has a bunch of lag, usually enough to let the opponent punish. On the other hand, AS is really good at stuffing the opponent's landings cause it's big and slow. of course mario (and others) can reflect it so that doesn't always work

Minor stuff:
conversions - you got a dtilt at around 1:13 which could have been followed up with a grab instead of fp flame.
randy reads - Fsmash at 1:16 shouldn't have hit the opponent and probably won't against good players. Then again, these just hit sometimes so trying it out every now and then isn't a bad idea

In general though, your play looks pretty solid.

Thanks for the feedback.
Question tho, how does dtilt covert to a grab if they pop up in the air unless you just pivot grab upon landing?? Just curious. I normally get that grab conversion from nair ff

dash to shield then shieldgrab
sometimes just dashgrabbing works depending on how far the opponent is sent and how fast their moves are (eg if they don't have a f3 nair or something), but pretty confident dash to shield would have covered mario's nair their, and could be followed up with grab.

I would say do not use force palm at low percents because up throw is better and you are staling the move. Never ever press counter. Use nair to approach instead of dair and mix up between grabs and dair at low percents.
