ness64, Slippery Bogle doesn't technically have hexproof. It just "can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control". Glaring Spotlight only affects creatures with hexproof.

Too bad Limited Resources is banned in commander. That could destroy someones day.

Here are some more possibilities for you some are good some are so/so.

Abu Ja'far , Alaborn Zealot , Anoint , Cho-Arrim Alchemist , Planar Guide , Pure Intentions , Righteousness , Sheltering Prayers , Amulet of Vigor , Glaring Spotlight , Grafdigger's Cage , Grindstone , Helm of Chatzuk , Pithing Needle , Skullclamp .

Glaring Spotlight seems more like a sideboard card. Oona, Queen of the Fae , despite being my commander, can also be taken out IMO

council's judgement

Glaring Spotlight + Oblation

Chump block fliers might be the easiest reliable choice to prevent commander damage but I would assume he has some enchantments like Unquestioned Authority .

Preventing/Redirecting damage could work but I don't know what cards are available for that path since I've never really tried it.

I am an avid Sigarda Voltron player.

One of the things I've always enjoyed about running Sigarda was that she really doesn't need much attached to her for her to win the game for me. I stopped caring when people blew up my enchantments because...well...I still had a 5/5 flying hexproof creature that I couldn't be made to sacrifice. The only time I have any problems with Sigarda are when someone removes the hexproof (Glaring Spotlight ), board-wipes before I make her indestructible (Wrath of God ), uses mass exile (Merciless Eviction ), Or uses mass tucking/tucking on a counterspell (Terminus , Hallowed Burial , Spell Crumple ). Even the tucking isn't always back-breaking however, as I run tutors to get her back.

Something like Paraselene has never phased me, personally. Neither has Nevermore simply because I'm playing green in EDH so a have plenty of enchantment/artifact hate. I think you should focus on your board wipes in the forms of those described above. Can't get them quick enough? Use mana rocks like Sol Ring and Mana Vault . Can't draw them? Add more copies in the form of things like Humility .

I play Sigarda as my Spike deck. I play it to win. And the reason I use her is because she is one of the single best voltron commanders ever printed. So if you find that you can't consistently answer that deck...just realize you're not the only one. It's hard to beat!

Glaring Spotlight could also prove useful. Hexproof commanders are a b*tch.

XTowelie: I don't know what exaclty you mean by "cheaper". If you mean cmc, then Glaring Spotlight can deal with hexproof for 1 mana for the rest of the game if your opponent doesn't destroy it. Ratchet Bomb is good too, but it can get a little unreliable at times.
Black Sun's Zenith was never meant to remove just 1 creature. Of course it can, but It can also potentially wipe the entire board including shroud/hexproof/indestructible. Damnation would definitely be better here, but the price difference is too huge.
I'm still not convinced about Cruel Ultimatum . I would need some legit arguments to understand what's so great about it.

What decks would you bring Glaring Spotlight in against? Bogles? Geist? there are better cheaper ways for those decks. Engineered Explosives Ratchet Bomb . I think black sun zenith is bad because it is 4+ mana to remove a single creature unless its a confidant. Cruel Ultimatum will make them concede. Price
