Hidden Stockpile Discussion
3 days ago
So far what I have experienced with this deck is that Liliana's Mastery was always the better choice for the deck, as it can power up some of my creatures to begin with, as well as provide some blockers at a possibly critical stage.
Hidden Stockpile is an interesting suggestions, and one I shall give some thought to.
I have Hour of Revelation in the side, so it could work, but I am not sure whether it will become a standard part of my plan. I will however keep the deck updated. I am currently debating a couple of changes from a couple more test matches I've had.

Yeah I'm not so sure about Hidden Stockpile being worth the color swap. Can you explain?

Sorry all for the delayed responses. I have been on an island with no digital communication.
MegaMatt13, I have played with both Wild Ricochet and Reverberate. I found that game changing sorceries and instants were rarely of a type that I wanted to copy. The ones that were most likely for me to want to copy were counterspells, and my meta has been pretty short on them, until recently. I often found that the rest of the sorceries and instants were well taken care of with the rest of my cards, and they sat in my had without being played whenever I drew them. I cycled them out of the deck after looking at them sit in my had a bunch of times without targets.
As far as the suggestions, I may try out the other Threaten effects. I chose the ones I though would fit best, but will probably cycle through all to get an idea if others may work better.
I also go back and forth about Phyrexian Arena. Great card, just slow. I am thinking about revamping the card draw in the deck, see below.
sashaza, I will have to check out your deck. As for your questions:
Pillow fort cards are often powerful in duplicate, but there is a threshold over which any more of them would be less effective than it could be with another card. I often hold them, or ditch them to things like Solitary Confinement or Key to the City. It is surprising how often a card is useful in this deck as a generic card resource, and I can ditch less than useful cards to pay these resource costs. This is also true of things like Gift of Estates, Tithe, and Weathered Wayfarer. Cards in hand are useful, even if the specifics of the cards in hand are not.
That being said, I am considering adding more scry to the deck. I find that the Temples are often very useful, and they fly under the radar more than just drawing the card would. I am considering adding Crystal Ball, Seer's Lantern, and Hidden Stockpile, as well as the semi-loot cards Winds of Change and Molten Psyche. This would keep my profile low, while allowing me to dig for what I need. I find that scry is lower profile than draw or even looting, but I get what I need with it just the same. Combining scry with semi-loot, loot, subtle draw, and outright draw, including The Monarch, will likely put me good shape.
I keep resisting Gisela, the Broken Blade. She is a bomb, for sure, but she is expensive, and she is not at all subtle. I am sure that she would be a great inclusion, but I think she would cause some problems that would be counter to the best functioning of the deck. I am ever in search of Wincons that fit the theme.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a cheap Rattlesnake with an additional benefit, that is all. The play was for a sac outlet, even if it will be rare to have it all come together.
I will update the list and record my thought processes in updates as soon as I make them.

The only discrepancy I have with your list is Hidden Stockpile. I have tested the card extensively, and it just barely misses the mark. It does help fill one of the biggest holes in our deck (draw manipulation) but only if we are ahead enough to afford to sac tokens. It is strong if drawn early so you can take advantage of the Revolt trigger from using your fetchlands, but even then I would rather have a Bitterblossom as my turn 2 play. If the tokens it produced had flying, I would definitely run 1 or 2 copies. Unfortunately, it misses the mark just enough to not be advisable in the deck, in my personal opinion. Deck looks great otherwise!

I've been testing Toolcraft Exemplar and Angel of Invention and I'm definitely happy with the former taking the spot of Sacred Cat which is sad, but turn 2 attacking with 3/2 is the kind of aggro I think is going to be needed to maintain the upper hand. My ideal 3 turns are:
