I feel like Fire-Tamed Dotard could be pushed to "Constructed meme deck" power, with a high upside if you can consistently pull off the condition. A rare 5/5 with trample seems reasonable.

Fledgling, Devious and Lackey are my favourites.
Hungry Witch seems more BG than UG. MAybe casting spells grants creatures hexproof? I dunno.
Clockworker Witch should probably only trigger off a specific spell type. Ins/orceries or artifacts- it could go either way. Is she making magic from metal or magicalling up the metal?

Hungry witch was originally BG, but then I made Lackey Witch and had to change the color. I tagged on the hexproof to make it blue, with the triggered ability being green.
