Balduvian Rage

Monks need a couple Shrines/Honden's so look at those.

Do these monk's use weapons? Flaming Sword, Manriki-Gusari etc.

Master of Pearls, Serene Master, Soltari Monk

Monks scream "protection from creatures" to me so Unquestioned Authority, Spirit Mantle or Holy Mantle

I feel like you need more draw. You want to ensure you draw into your land drops and support cards and not end up in topdeck mode. I'd lose Flaming Sword and add at least one more Warlord's Fury because of this. Temur Battle Rage is a great card and can serve as your instant-speed first-strike-tricks.

You could also add one each of Forgotten Cave and Tranquil Thicket if you like.

And consider squeezing in something like Adventurous Impulse or something for more hand control.

Also, maybe replace Fall of the Hammer with something like Fling or Collateral Damage because they can hit players too. Sack your creature to it right before it dies and get go "over" enemy creatures right to the opponent's face.

Marchesa loves hidden weapons. Flaming Sword casts like an instant and murders almost anything attacking your rightful monarch.

Summer Palace? Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep

There are any number of "crown" enchantments that could help protect Marchesa.

If you feel like using Spy Kit (maybe even in another deck) try pairing it with Eye of Singularity and a creature that has regeneration or indestructible. ( Faerie Artisans is my favorite combo with the Eye)

Flaming Sword for an instant speed permanent.

Hypervolt Grasp is illegal due to the blue mana symbol.

Manriki-Gusari to take out equipment with protection/hexproof/shroud and (more fun, less useful) Neko-Te takes out indestructible and regenerating creatures.

If you had a consistent way to make colorless mana i would suggest Endbringer.

Hey carpecanum and thank you for your suggestions! Since my commander offers first strike (to all the minotaurs) I don't feel the need to include Flaming Sword since it only benefits the deck in combat phase. Arena looks like a really interesting card but having the opponent choose the creature by himself limits the use of the card (1/1 tokens etc.) plus having to tap 3 Mana and Arena itself seems just like a too expensive cost to destroy one "random" creature. If I decide to add more deathtouch-stuff it could possibly jump into the deck though. Fire Whip looks interesting but since it's an enchantment it is quite limited. I'd prefer Viridian Longbow in this case. Thank you for your suggestions however. I'm gonna add them to the Maybeboard!

Flaming Sword, Arena and Fire Whip are great with Deathtouch.

I love Flaming Sword with deathtouch.

Fire Whip goes with the pinging. I think there are 2 other red enchantments that do the same thing but I forgot the names.

A fun card with any creature with Deathtouch (especially a commander) is Flaming Sword. You get one surprise kill and then dare people to attack again.
