Witch's Oven Discussion

The main problem with Fog style lists is that Enchantress does basically the same thing with Solitary Confinement, except more compact and with a better shell.
That said, you could theoretically assemble a much weirder concept. Using cards like Hope of Ghirapur and Judge's Familiar to assemble other locks, something like Ravenous Squirrel to act as a big beater, and cards like Rally the Ancestors to bring everything back.
I recommend the Cauldron Familiar Witch's Oven combo to go with Ravenous Squirrel. You can also use Thraben Inspector as a draw engine -- just sac it to Oven or another sac outlet and get all the clues you need.
It might work pretty well, but I'm no aristocrats player so I couldn't tell you.

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, it's a bit of a chaotic deck. I sought to integrate multiple themes and lots of ideas, so an apparent lack of focus was pretty much inevitable. I haven't had issues with the deck not working, though.
First, the suggested cuts:
While Pillardrop Warden and Cogwork Archivist might be a little less efficient than other options, they are a bit more flexible in how they are used. The archivist is useful if I want to put Glimpse of Tomorrow back into my library They both also have reach.
Tavern Scoundrel and Witch's Oven are good ways to sacrifice something that might otherwise be exiled, stolen, or temporary. I can sacrifice Homura, Human Ascendant Flip to flip him or gain control of an artifact with Confusion in the Ranks. It's a useful effect to have access to.
Mishra's Self-Replicator is a good mutate target, and I can trigger it fairly easily.
Chandra's Ignition is a solid asymmetrical board wipe, and good for clearing away pesky utility creatures.
Second, your suggestions:
I have a few options for more draw that I'm already thinking about, and utility lands are something I can easily play around with. I eventually need to add my Treasure Vault and Goblin Welder to the deck, but they are tied up in other decks at the moment. I think impulse draw isn't ideal for this deck. If I end up exiling Glimpse of Tomorrow because I can't cast or suspend it.

So what is the goal of this deck? Is this sort of a chaos/token deck? I can see the skeleton of the strategy, but I also see theft, pirates, and burn. My main suggestion would be try to trim some of the out of place cards. Thoughts on things to include/remove regarding the token/chaos strategy:
You run enough pirates that Breeches, Brazen Plunderer might be worth it
Curse of Opulence - easy tokens and mana
There are a fair number of goblins that come with tokens so I would look into some of those
Rionya, Fire Dancer for temporary token copies for your best creatures
Possible cuts (most of these are odd fits or just inefficient cards that have better alternatives):
Overall I like the deck idea, I just feel it needs a little more focus. +1 from me.

With the current build, that's what I do if I can get more than one Witch's Oven on the field. Its also one of the reasons I am debating in including Deadly Dispute or Village Rites. Thanks for the thought Lethos!

Something to think about though, you can count on your opponent trying to remove some of your more important cards, and just bank up extra food by sacking them first with Witch's Oven. This lets you sac Cauldron Familiar for other things like Spark Harvest and still return him to the battlefield with the extra food.

Lethos Thanks for the comment and suggestion!
My only worry about Spark Harvest is that the creatures I do care to sacrifice are being sacrificed to something else (Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven) and the ones I don't want to sacrifice unless absolutely necessary (Mayhem Devil and Zulaport Cutthroat) I want to keep on the board. Granted, if the problem is big enough then I don't care. I do have the tokens from Chandra, assuming she stays alive long enough. It's a thought. Thank you.

Hello there Saccox! While it's not a bad card, the problem with him is because the effect doesn't last. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame sacrifices her permanents at the end step, Witch's Oven I don't tend to use until my opponent's end step with Cauldron Familiar , and with God-Eternal Bontu Slaughter-Priest of Mogis could be worthless if my opponent has any kind of chump blocker. I don't sacrifice enough at one time to make him super powerful. Thanks for the comment!

I like a casual list with a strong theme! I hope you have a forgiving meta where you can actually play and enjoy this deck.
Hope this helps!
