Yeap, Price of Progress is definitely worth it in EDH if you can build around it! Honestly your deck is dual-colour and there are no really colour-intensive mana costs in your deck, so I think you can actually cut most of your dual colour-producing lands. I would do the following: Cut Cinder Marsh, Foreboding Ruins, Lantern-Lit Graveyard, Rainbow Vale, Rakdos Carnarium. Replace them with basics Mountains and Swamps. This allows you to most effectively abuse Price of Progress. Oh yeah and before I forget you should run Anathemancer.

Havoc Festival is a hilarious card! In my experience people rarely try to target it as it hits everyone.

Lastly, I recommend that you find some way to squeeze in a few instant speed removal. I think Terminate, Hero's Downfall, Doom Blade, Murder, Chaos Warp are sufficient. You'll want some way to focus your resources against specific players, so that you won't be a "free" target. Instant speed removal will never die in your hand, you'll always have something you want to kill/threaten to be able to kill. I would consider cutting Nettling Curse, Custody Battle, Measure of Wickedness, Avarice Amulet, Harmless Offering.

Yup, just as TheVectornaut said, the aura is controlled by the caster, not by the controller of the creature it's attached to. Otherwise cards like Nettling Curse literally wouldn't function.

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.

To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).

Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.

Catalog9000, Darth_Savage I am the worst at remembering non-basic lands. Thanks! I am going to definitely root around and see if I can't drudge up some of those leechboys. I am liking Visions of Brutality for a control angle more than Nettling Curse, but... Curses! These are both going into the maybe board for some solid consideration regardless.

As for Thoughtpicker Witch and Inkfathom Witch, I think if I were to swap some things out, I'd use Thoughtpicker, because it's cheaper, I could actually get some use out of my Witches' Eye and I can force a sac if for some reason I can't get my Bubbling Cauldron out.

Thanks a bunch for the feedback!

With Nettling Curse, there's also Visions of Brutality.

This is a theme deck, which tends to make it more casual than anything else, that being said trying to improve the mana curve might help. A couple of creature suggestions are Thoughtpicker Witch and Inkfathom Witch seem like they would fit and are nice and cheap... Also on theme is Nettling Curse, sure you can't force an attack but it might help stall an opponent.
