Ok so I don't have a Riku deck but because of the world of commander I have a pretty good idea of how he works and how to build around him. Yes cards like Avenger of Zendikar would work. Also get cards like Blade of Selves and anything close to Clone. Maybe having a copy of Biovisionary just to have a fun win condition! Is there anything else specific that you want to cover on this topic?

I second Nature's Will and Druids' Repository and add Sword of Feast and Famine and Bear Umbra. If you want to go infinite with Cryptolith Rite add in Ahn-Crop Champion or Reconnaissance. Reconnaissance also has the added effect of avoiding combat.
If you want warriors with excellent attack triggers, take a look at Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Arashin Foremost, Blood-Chin Rager, Brutal Hordechief, really all the warriors from Tarkir and Amonkhet. There's also some really cool equipment like Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host that will help.

While browsing the recent comments, I noticed your question on Last_Laugh's wall. Since he or she has not been active for a week, I wanted to provide you an answer right away.
The big longer answer:
In Magic, there is a difference between the action, "to attack," and the state of being "attacking."
"To attack" is the process of being declared as an attacker. Attacking is the state of being in the process of attacking an opponent.
"When this creature attacks" triggers only trigger when a creature is declared as an attacker.
Myriad puts the creature on the battlefield attacking--the copies are NEVER declared an attacker, and thus do not trigger "when this creature attacks" abilities. This holds true for any time you cheat a creature into combat without declaring it an attacker (such as Kaalia of the Vast).
Also, rather than post on people's wall, I highly recommend using the Rules Q&A question of this site. You can usually get a response in a couple minutes that way.
Hope that helps!

Hello last laugh, I just have a magic question in general. Does Etali, Primal Storm's ability trigger with Blade of Selves? I acknowledge the Etali copies will become sacrificed because of the legend rule.

Incredibly aggro for the low low price of 18 Mana.
I guess play all of the rocks?

Thank you for your suggestions, I appreciate it. I was aware of them however, and have reservations.
Generally I find Norn's Annex to be a little overrated in commander. One mana isn't a significant tax, and two life is even less so. Baird falls into that same line of thinking. 1 mana is just a pretty weak tax. Sure, token decks are boned, but frankly Ghostly Prison and propoganda due the job better, and are harder to remove. And cheaper.
It's been a challenge for me to build Raff with the restrictions I laid out. It's fun to be an all-instant deck, but it's also tough to pick historic cards that are worse than their non-historic counterparts. I've tried my best not to, it brings down the power level of the deck in the grand scheme of playing.
Bottom line is really that Raff needs powerful cards in his arsenal, cause Raff himself only enables a cool way to play, that's pretty much it.
Thank you again, I'll take a look at your list in a bit.
