Elvish Piper Discussion

I've been using this deck to playtest against, and I've gotten maybe 20 games in against my decks now (they're all private, don't bother looking). I have a few suggestions.
Overall, you struggle when you can't find Quest for Ula's Temple. This is just an unfortunate fact of building around a specific card, but fortunately there are numerous ways of cheating creatures into play. Here are some ideas: See the Unwritten, Quicksilver Amulet, Proteus Staff, Polymorph, Mindwrack Liege, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Call to the Kindred, Braids, Conjurer Adept, and Belbe's Portal.
Your topdeck manipulation is both mediocre and only used to dig for Quest for Ula's Temple. The idea of using creatures to dig is dandy, since they trigger quest as well, but they are a bit slow, and I'm not convinced the trade off is worth it. Here are some deck manipulation options: Brainstorm, Crystal Ball, Cream of the Crop, Mirri's Guile, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, Soothsaying, Sensei's Divining Top, Aqueous Form and Worldly Tutor.
Here are some ways to take further advantage of topdeck manipulation: Oracle of Mul Daya, Courser of Kruphix, Druidic Satchel, Bloodline Shaman, and I'm sure there are more, but I'm falling asleep in my chair.

Id like to integrate Liege of the Tangle in here, and maybe Elvish Piper to cheat in some high CMC baddies. What do you guys think about that? Also what are a few of the cards you would likely cut first to make room for others?

Elvish Piper is a great card, but it tends to get killed far too quickly before it can every really get its value. I've had it in and out of the deck several times over the years. If I can manage to keep it alive, it is an amazing card. It's kind of a tradeoff. I try to avoid 1/1 creatures unless they have an ETB effect that I can exploit with Conjurer's Closet or some other card.

Here are a few cards i'd consider: Blades of Velis Vel is a fun one to steal nondragons and even if they are no longer dragons at the end of the turn you still keep them, Elvish Piper is a good way to cheat dragons in early, Imperial Hellkite and Sarkhan's Triumph are good tutors, Drumhunter is ramp AND card draw, Fearsome Awakening and Bladewing the Risen can get your dragons back from the dead, and Scourge of Valkas. Hope this helps!

You're going to want to cut down on the cards in your deck to 60. That way you have the best chance of drawing your best cards. To add to your problem here are in my opinion some of the best mana ramp spells: Utopia Sprawl (especially with Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Elvish Archdruid (only if you have enough elves, Somberwald Sage, Sakura-Tribe Elder (better than rampant growth since you can block with it if needed and also can be put in off the primal surge you are considering). Tooth and Nail, Elvish Piper, and See the Unwritten are also good ways to cheat creatures into play. As for cuts, I think you can probably take out Bow of Nylea,Druid's Deliverance, fog, Gnaw to the Bone, Increasing Savagery, Ivy Lane Denizen, Kessig Recluse, Staff of the Wild Magus, Stuffy Doll, Ring of Three Wishes, Unknown Shores. Hope this helps!
