Wall spells, summoning, and buffs don't need saving throws, and they all tend to be pretty effective. I mean, unless your buddy's fighter decides that he wants to make a saving throw against haste for some reason.
In both examples, dice were rolled. Therefore, they are both examples of rollplay.
There's a note at the beginning of the latest player companion, Divine Anthology, that Warpriests are allowed to use variant spells that clerics get.
There are also some spells in Legacy of Dragons that get added to your spell list for free (they have the [Draconic] descriptor) if you count as a dragon. That's also a benefit.
I'd actually use an Investigator.
Think about it. A high intelligence for many skills because fictional butlers are expected to know how to do a crapload of different things. Inspiration makes them do those things well. And alchemical extracts with the infusion discovery can be represented as different teas that the butler prepares for the master to get them psyched-up for an upcoming encounter.
Replace "McDonalds Employee" with "Hedge Fund Manager" and your analogy makes sense.
What about shirtless wizards?
What if it's clothing that is magically glamered to not look like wizard robes, but otherwise is?
See if you can convince your GM to let your character come back as an Onmyoji Spiritualist. It's an archetype that changes the spiritualist's spell casting so that it is divine rather than psychic. Your character would still cast divine spells, it's just that the nature of those spells changed when he had a spirit bound to him.
A Desna-worshipping Eldritch Scion Magus could be interesting.
So, not an exact analogue for any fictional candy, but I think it would be kind of funny if your identify extract was a piece of gum which changes flavors depending on what kind of magical item you're looking at.
"Strong cinnamon flavor... little bit of apple here and there... I'm pretty sure that this is a +1 Flaming Longsword, everyone!"
1.) Whoooooooo wants a donut!?
The questions to your answers are right here!
A.) Why are you telling me this? You'd never tell anyone this!
The Extremely Fashionable trait might be worth a look for your character, actually.
I'm going to second the Oracle idea. There's a new Oracle Curse in Legacy of Dragons, Covetous, which fits the concept perfectly. The curse basically requires you to have as much non-magical shiny things bedazzling your body as you can afford. As for mysteries, I think you could go either metal (temporarily reshape your metal coins to literally beat your enemies to death with your money) or lore (a very cerebral type of mystery which fits the contemplative Kalistradian well).
1.) Hello! Can I speak to you about Cthulhu, our lord and savior?
First the answers... Then the questions.
A.) Ow! My pride!
1.) Did Kim Jong Un just run past us crying?
Feel the power of my overwhelming answers!
A.) Very well. If this is the only path forward left to me then I accept!
