This deck is pretty fun, I'm not gonna lie.
If anyone plays it in throne, let me know how you do!
The idea is that your value never stops if you can get Xo to cost very little and you get it back with memory dredger/voprex's choice/dark return. Many games I win just by dark returning dragonsmith and getting ally triggers over and over.
With regards to the forge package (which is the whole point of eccentric officer+xo), you want the persuader as a very solid card to pop off with teething whelp if you happen to not get a rust grafter.
The mistveil drake, circlet, and timepiece can be any number of weapons or dragons of your liking.
