Legendary Planeswalker — Jaya
+1: Gain . Spend this mana only to cast instant or sorcery spells.
+1: Discard up to three cards, then draw that many cards.
-8: You get an emblem with "You may cast instant and sorcery cards from your graveyard. If a card cast this way would be put into your graveyard, exile it instead."
Jaya Ballard Discussion

This is janky and great. I was building something similar for a friend using Jaya Ballard , and there's lots here I hadn't considered. I had never heard of Satyr Firedancer, and now I love it.

You may want the Planeswalkers that add red mana.
Jaya will allow you to get mana and loot. CTOD gives you mana or card advantage. CBP only gets you mana, but comes with a free Shock tacked on as well.

It requires your Oathbreaker to be out on the field. This is a hefty requirement to use an Instant.
Paying for 3 damage is great. Paying is okay. Paying is insane. Paying is so laughable that it'd never be cast. After the first two castings, it loses it's value.
I made an Oathbreaker deck that's designed to be budget and runs Jaya Ballard with Collective Defiance because she can cast it immediately after coming out thanks to her +1, it scales with mana, and it is very flexible in it's use; Aka utility.
Here is the deck Budget Oathbreaker - Jaya Ballard if you'd like to take a look at it. It's one of five mono-colored decks. I just made a post about it in the Oathbreaker thread I started.
Choose one -
Return target permanent to the top of it's owner's library. If it was a permanent you owned, scry 3.
Entwine: Pay 2 life or discard a land.
Let's play hide and seek. Only I hide your future and you seek out madness.
I'd actually like to see another Aminatou . She's extremely interesting and I wonder how she would have acted in WAR. She obviously would have never shown up, because she would have seen her own future there and decide to merely not Planeswalk. But let's assume she had?
Make her a Mythic level Planeswalker so that she gets access to all three abilities and has a static ability on top of it :)

Before I begin, I'd like to preface this with the fact that I want this to work, you have no idea.
1.) How do you intend to fish out Genju of the Spires ? It seems fairly important for the deck to run, but I worry it will get flooded out of the odds by the 56 Mountains.
2.) How do you cast things when there's little/no land on your side of the field? I think a deck like this would appreciate some kind of ramp, especially since Fling is going to get hella pricey after the first one or two castings.
What others already said:
Jaya Ballard ; doubles as draw power.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance ; also doubles as an additional source of damage.
Pyromancer's Goggles ; more for spell duplication, but still. Why wouldn't anyone want to duplicate Fling here?
Neheb, the Eternal ; almost necessary with how much Fling will cost down the road. You'll get at least 4-6 mana in the post-combat main phase for the Fling you casted earlier.
Crucible of Worlds ; it would be good to have at least a second form of land recursion. It's one the best pieces you can hope for outside of Green.
Crawlspace ; see above.
Repercussion ; another form of creature suppression in its own way.
Fire Servant ; even more Fling mileage; doesn't double damage dealt to you.
. . .
That's all that comes to mind off the top of my head. I'll be interested in seeing if/how this deck progresses.

Jaya Ballard s Emblem would be nice next to Feather.

I thought of you right away when I saw this one, congrats. My musings, hopefully it's not all Captain Obvious:
You seem to have already picked up on it but Feather can recur spells on the end of each turn so Instants are a bit preferable (and Flash-enablers)
I'm not sure how Flashback & Jump-Start interacts with Feather's ability, but if it turn out to be OK spells with that are a bit less dependent on your commander being out since you can cast them once from your hand without her, and then safely recur them again once she's on the field. Some combination of Recoup , Past in Flames or even Jaya Ballard might also be used to enable the recursion of lost spells.
No Sunforger ? Seems pretty perfect here, for more than two reasons
