Sigil of the New Dawn is very nice, because, despite its low price, it has never been reprinted, and the new artwork looks great.
I am not particularly pleased about the reprint of Containment Priest, because I feel that that card is too inexpensive for such a powerful effect (it really should have cost 3 or 4 mana for that effect).
Angel of Despair is one of my favorite angles in the game, so her being reprinted is always nice; I would have preferred to see her with new artwork, but her current artwork is so awesome that there is no real need to replace it. Why was she demoted to an uncommon? She is far too powerful to be anything less than a rare, in my mind.
Ertai, the Corrupted would also look very nice in the new frame style, as well.
I did not realize that Vengevine had become so expensive, so it being reprinted in this set is very nice, indeed.

Kiki-Resto seea play (sorry W.O.O.), but the meta has shifted. Lot's more aggressive stuff like 5-C Humans and RB Vengevine.

I have doubts about sleeper agent because lines like the following ones:
In a game against jund, they start with land drop + discard, on your turn 1 you give them Sleeper Agent. They swing with it for 3, then play Assassin's Trophy - and run out a Bloodbraid Elf or 2x Tarmogoyf/Scavenging Ooze on turn 3.
UW control can do the exact same line with Path to Exile - to ramp into their walkers, and run away with card advantage countering all your spells. -Relying too much on any single cmc is a deckbuilding COST.
You make yourself vulnerable to Chalice of the Void - which is going to be a great card, when everyone jumps on the jund bandwagon and ditches abrupt decay. (jund is basically "best 2 drop" tribal.deck - and you can get accidentally hit by the hate brought against them, from decks that can reliably ramp into early chalice)
If you are racing any deck, giving them a 3/3 is a BAD idea. Even if you are sometimes able to negate the downside with spells. This is not a card you would want to see against fast decks (yeah you can use your spells to tap it, or a Hollow One/Gurmag Angler/Vengevine
Against decks with sac outlet, this card simply gives free value t the opponent. Free scry with Viscera Seer (+ 2/2 body, of the have Bridge from Below in the grave), or more counters for hardened scales "affinity", if they have an Arcbound Ravager on the field.
I completely agree that the flexibility offered by cantrips is underappreciated. However i would caution against valueing it over the utility of "deals damage to any target" - as the any target can be key cards, you would easily loose the game to otherwise. Being able to kill walkers like an early Liliana of the Veil or Teferi, Hero of Dominaria can easily mean the difference between winning and loosing games. Yes, Eidolon of the Great Revel is a meta choice, its great in metagames with a lot of cheap spells. Its bad in rare metagems that have a lot of decks life dragon skred, or other similar decks, that you use your own eidolon to lock you out from casting any spell due the life loss.

I have tried using Prized Amalgam in similar Zombie Vial builds, and I've found that Amalgams are only worth including if you are running numerous creatures with return to battlefield abilities. In my Grave Blaster (Sultai Reanimator) deck, I run self-mill with Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Vengevine, and Skaab Ruinator, so the Amalgams work well. Otherwise, the Amalgams usually end up being vanilla 3/3s for 3 mana, and other cards have better value.

There are eldrazi-tron primers out there which cover most of the key points far better than I can. I've seen players shift to eldrazi and taxes or green tron, but I can't speak to exactly what is causing that shift without piloting it.
Humans and other aggro (complete with Meddling Mage and Kitesail Freebooter), with sideboarded Damping Sphere or Alpine Moon are the other new hurdle. Secondarily - watch out for those Heroic Intervention in every green list with creatures.
Look forward to Abrupt Decay and Path to Exile's bastard child, Assassin's Trophy. It can hit lands. This will be a major tool for B/G/x- upping spellskite count might be attractive depending on how it makes it into the meta, although with any luck it'll make KCI less dominant.
