Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

I think you have too many ramp/big mana cards with nothing particularly strong to build towards. I'd build this deck with the goal of Early/Mid: Disrupt, lock down the board, gain board presence, Late: Attack with huge walls and win. So, think about replacing worse ramping walls with better walls or control cards. I think you have a good creature/spell mix, but you may want to make it slightly cheaper.
Also, blue has some great defenders so you could switch up your colors if you're unsatisfied with BW.
Duress -> Thoughtseize/Despise (may be better/worse depending on meta) | Damnable Pact -> Painful Truths/Read the Bones | Torment of Hailfire -> Anguished Unmaking | Dusk -> Languish/Settle the Wreckage/Drown in Sorrow | Deathrite Shaman -> Jaddi Offshoot (DS isn't nearly as good without fetches and cheap spells)

I'd go for Ambush Viper (sneaky removal when you need it) or Nightshade Peddler (usually two death touch creatures for the price of one). If you want a a fun deterrent you can try Hornet Nest, it doesn't have any power, it can't attack, but opponents typically don't want to swing into it with anything that doesn't have trample. It is also really funny with Setessan Tactics and any big creature. If you want to give death touch to creature, I would suggest going the equipment route with Basilisk Collar or Quietus Spike, which works nicely with trample. Or you could go with Gorgon Flail as it is less mana intensive and adds some power. Hope this helps.

So let's say you don't want creatures attacking you, right? One way to pull this off is to set up some deterrents; cards that make people not want you to be the target.
Or, perhaps, Curse of Opulence Curse of Opulence can give people a little reward for attacking not you. Giving yourself the monarch can work the same way in an odd way, moving the primary target around at your leisure.

Korvold is more of a , hey I'm glad you were here when all that happened card. He's the perfect battlefield ascetic for sac decks.
These cards are also way better token producers than some of this stuff you have, although bitterblossum for sac tokens is kind of Meh IMO. Its a great card, but those tokens are more useful as attackers.

Creature - Pest
Whenever Tattered Nest is dealt damage, create that many 0/1 black Pest creature tokens.
Pests you control get +1/+1
Inspired by Hornet Nest , which is a card I love but can't find a decent home for where it truly shines. One day I'll be able to run a playset in Modern and people will roll their eyes and sigh... one day :'3
Take a local bar in your area and turn it into a legendary land, lololol
