I really like the thematic deck idea! How apposed are you to using unset cards? While they technically aren't legal in commander, this deck doesn't exactly strike me as trying to play in tournaments. I'm mostly asking for Pippa, Duchess of Dice who seems pretty thematically appropriate. Even if you decide not, Ancestral Memories directly references the book, as does Pearled Unicorn. Others include Zodiac Rabbit (For obvious reasons) Diminish (Shrinking) Into the Story or Once Upon a Time also work well. Grumgully, the Generous could also be a mad-hatter character, still bested by Mad Ratter though. Also, Sorcerous Spyglass

Easiest way to break Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho is with Puresteel Paladin and a sac outlet. I'm not sure but I believe it checks subtype of creature while in the graveyard so Ashes of the Fallen would make any creature come back? Might be fun with like a Solemn Simulacrum

Other infinite combos I know of are:

Angelic Renewal and Sun Titan + sac

Obvious one Nim Deathmantle or Eldrazi Displacer and Ashnod's Altar with Springjack Shepherd or Knight-Captain of Eos etc.

Ancestral Memories and Blasting Station goes infinite with any 0 cost creature.

Emeria Shepherd and Solemn Simulacrum with a sac outlet may not be infinite, but it's a game winner.

That's all I can think of atm.

Stuff that's too weak:Battlefield Scrounger, Krosan Beast, Renowned Weaver, Necrotic Ooze (if only because people will normally kill it on sight due to it being a combo enabler), Ancestral Memories, Ana Sanctuary, Soothsaying, Cancel (at least get Undermine or something).

This deck could really use a few pieces of mass removal. I'm fond of Pernicious Deed and Black Sun's Zenith.
