Hello everyone, I am looking at fleshing a good Samsaran Witch for a long campaign likely to reach Mythic proportion (Wrath of the Righteous). We are going to encounter a lot of Demons, as such I expect good Will saves so I planned on beefing up my Hex and focus on buff then control. I don't look to be a power house just being able to hold my ground against demons on a regular basis is fine. Yet I would like to be able to up my game if needed.
My group lack support/heal (Diviner Mage, Ranged Rogue and Tank Palie) so I expect to take this role.I know it is not the best position for a Witch, I hope on using the Mystic past life to bring some good stuff to help.
So far I came up with the following:
Familiar : compsognathus 9 (+ 4 init please!)
Patron : Healing (nothing appealed to me much and it will allow me to get some much needed spell for my group (Restoration anyone?)
Traits: (2 + drawbacks are allowed)
- ??? => Must come from the campaign player guide
- ??? I thought about Adopted - Honeyed Tongue but it sounds really cheesy... so it is likely to be Reactionary

I have already a pretty good idea of what I am doing but there is still some grey area, mainly on the spells and metamagic as I will take the alternate: Mystic Past Life (Su).
To sum up, my questions are :
What spells/Metamagic combination should I take to fulfill my role as an Hexer, support / control taking into account Mystic past life ?
Bonus : Should I take Improved familiar and which familiar?
Bonus : I am happy with my feats / traits but any advice is welcome.
Updated stat to reflect game restriction: No dump stat (nothing below 10), I will put a point into charisma sooner or later.
