I added some dragon flavor with a single Lightning Shrieker replacing the Jeska, Warrior Adept I do not own. I've made a few other changes, but the deck seems really explosive. (turn 3 winable explosive).
If you draw a haster turn 1 > 3 damage, turn 2 play Kiln Fiend, turn 3 play 3 instants/sorceries including the Assault Strobe and a Rush of Adrenaline (so it gets double strike, trample and +8 damage and you hit for 18 damage > 21 damage total. Even if they block, you can use a Flame Slash before combat, to deal 24 damage with the fiend and kill the blocker.
I removed the Assault Strobe for now, and replaced it with a combination of 2 Dragon Mantle and 2 Burst Lightning. This seems a bit slower, and gives more reach should the game last longer. Both introduce a new mechanic, which might be a bit much for the complete beginner, but I haven't had any issues with the two I played it with.

Flameshadow Conjuring creates additional hasty token copies of creatures you play, which is great for staying aggressive and increasing your value, but it also means twice the yelling.
Temur Battle Rage isn't on the screamy tribal theme, but it'll often instantly win you games through commander damage with Kamahl. Double strike and trample on a 6-power creature is a lethal combination.
Jeska, Warrior Adept is Kamahl's sister, so she ought to be included for flavor. She's also not a bad card herself.
Darksteel Plate is a powerful way to protect your commander and his flimsy 1-toughness. The best part is is that the equipment is also indestructible.
Insurrection wins games. The art is also all like, "have ALL the yelling crazy people fighting for me!"
Koth of the Hammer is really, really good. He's mana ramp and aggressively transforms your lands into giant attacking creatures. Hmm...that sounds like another card related to your commander...Kamahl, Fist of Krosa.
Paragon of Fierce Defiance is a great anthem effect in mono-red, and he can give another creature haste for a turn.
Basilisk Collar on your commander means you can instantly kill anything, and gain 3 life to boot. Straight-up, repeatable death.
Godo, Bandit Warlord would be a good way to tutor for one of those equipment to attach to Kamahl. Also thanks to his printing in Commander 2016, his price is under a dollar.
Inferno Titan is big, bad, and hits like a truck. Wipes out blockers whenever he attacks, then firebreathe him into ultra-screamy mode.
Dictate of the Twin Gods is another Furnace of Rath-style enchantment, but since it has flash, you can craft an unexpected win out of nowhere.
Love the deck idea! +1'd!

When you say "depicted in cards," I assume you mean ones that have their own Planeswalker card, and not just creature versions, right? If not, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer was a planeswalker for about 5 minutes or so! Jeska, Warrior Adept, Jaya Ballard, Task Mage, and Grandmother Sengir (Ravi Sengir) also have cards!

My card guesses, based on 'Lore'.
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
Jeska, Warrior Adept
Serra Ascendant or Serra Avatar
Eldrazi Monument - Is there something better for the 'release' of the Eldrazi?
Most are self explanatory (if you know lore)... Near-Death Experience is add as pointing to the 'typical' way a Planeswalker spark ignites.

It's hard to figure out what 3 drops to cut because most of the meat and potatoes in the deck are 3 drops lol. I do like Jeska, Warrior Adept. The rest of your suggestions are solid. I just have no idea what to cut.
Thanks much for the upvote!
