I don't know if this helps but the Oracle's Curse increases with non-Oracle levels.
Oracle's Curse (Ex): Each oracle is cursed, but this curse comes with a benefit as well as a hindrance. This choice is made at 1st level, and once made, it cannot be changed. The oracle's curse cannot be removed or dispelled without the aid of a deity. An oracle's curse is based on her oracle level plus one for every two levels or Hit Dice other than oracle. Each oracle must choose a single curse.
So with a 1 level Oracle dip you the 5th level Curse ability at level 9 and the 10th level curse at level 19. If you want tye 15th level curse you meed at least 10 levels of Oracle so that's peobably not worth "dipping".
Soulbound Summoner. VMC oracle will get you a curse for any class.
Thanks for the Soulbound (Unchained, not Classic) Summoner tip. I had somehow missed that, probably from forgetting to look in both versions of the class to keep track of archetypes.
VMC Oracle is valid but usually isn't very good -- one of the consumed feats is blown on temporarily speeding up Curse advancement, and another is blown on an Orison, AND you take a 6 level penalty for determining your effective Oracle level for not only qualifying for Revelations, but also for determining their effect, and not all Mysteries or Revelations are available. If you can find a combination of Revelations that don't depend on your Oracle level (or at least not much), then it could be okay.
