I find underwater ravines and seal off the top. The ravine is deep for lots of building space, and in the middle of the ocean, where people are less likely to go to grief - they'd rather go grief some n00b who builds aboveground.
I have never used an x-ray mod (or any client mods), so I do not know what they reveal. But under a layer of lava in a natural lava lake is a good place to hide a chest, as long as you fix flowing lava in what should be still lava, or misdirect any flowing lava to a different spot. The chest does not actually burn and you can still access it through the lava without any visible signs to anyone watching you. That seemed to work when someone with an invisible mod (I could not see them) was hassling me. Of course if someone pours water on the lava, you have your work cut out for you digging it out of obsidian.
I have also hidden chests within naturally occurring dirt or gravel in caves or mines, totally enclosed in dirt or gravel (no air blocks). Not sure if no air blocks stops it from being spotted with x-ray. Nobody bothered them, but they, or anyone nearby, could spot them when dug out for access.
Also it helps to put some dummy chests around with some things in them, to misdirect, so they think they found your loot.
raiders X-ray like 90% of the time, so all of this stuff, while in a great world where no one cheats is great, however on a minecraft server that allows griefing, probably worth nothing.however besides that, I usually just build underground, make sure I have 2 block thick walls at least use natural area for the door and just have to use natural markers that help me find it. You need to set yourself up where you have resources nearby and then you also farm and everything underground. Another thing is you have to be ridiculously far away from the spawn.
Honestly just to increase your survival by a lot, just build really far away from the spawn, have people you trust with you to build your own world. Then you head over to where everyones at when you feel like interacting. Thats the safest thing you can do. That and keep everything hidden. But best thing is strength in number of players with you. You'll win every time if you are tougher and have more people. Then people don't mess with you period.
