Rite of the Raging Storm
Creatures named Lightning Rager can't attack you or planeswalkers you control.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player creates a 5/1 red Elemental creature token named Lightning Rager. It has trample, haste, and "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this creature."

I feel like if you're going to run Hidetsugu, you might want to take a look at Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, AFAIK when you give Hidetsugu lifelink with Vito out you should win via Hidetsugu's ability (you also hit yourself, which I think helps eek out even more damage via lifelink), and if you somehow don't win you'll have a (usually) nuts life total and each opponent will be on death's doorstep. If you want I can try to explain it, I'm not 100% clear on it myself though.
If your deck uses a lot of enchantments/effects that you don't care who controls them, just that they are on the board at all, Thieves' Auction is a good way to stick other people with your cards. That 'do nothing' for the person controlling them comes in exchange for other people's better stuff, this can win a game by itself.
I think you can stack the triggers as you see fit, so I don't think people could sacrifice the tokens made by Rite of the Raging Storm to your Commander's effect, I find this card can do a decent amount of work if you can get it and maybe Mask of Griselbrand out. I feel like Mask's mixture of evasion, life gain and potential card draw is decent in Rakdos, which wants all 3 of those in my experience.
To solve problematic creature-based board states (without risking your own stuff) you might try Make an Example, which lets you remove (in among the most resilient/foolproof ways) each opponent's best creature, assuming that player can figure out which creature you'll choose and can make an optimal pile, which is not guaranteed. It's hilarious if you can take out more than 1 creature from a player.

Anything that gives you an extra Attack phase will double your mana bonus

Nice Reanimate Khardur list!
I've tried to use Victory Chimes many many times, but most of the time people didn't need the mana and I didn't have use for it, so i just swapped it for a Commander's Sphere/Skyclave Relic to fix my mana.

NTakamura I didn't consider that being attacked was actually part of the goal. If that's the case keep on keeping on.
Some of the first that jumped to my mind were Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor. As Kazuul wants to be attacked and Varchild gives out lots of tokens just by existing while protecting you. Those, however, are monocolored. Still options for the 99.
Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant is pretty solid but I'd edge more towards Kardur, Doomscourge. He goads your opponents every ETB. Combine that with some of the already mentioned cards and Rite of the Raging Storm, Goblin Spymaster, and Tempt with Vengeance. Among others. You could actually drop the lifegain or with cards like Exquisite Blood and Whip of Erebos keep it going.
As a final offering Basandra, Battle Seraph allows you to force attacks like the Rakdos options but keeps attacking you open. I think the hardest part of this strategy is going to be forcing attacks. Particularly if you don't use red. Up to you of course and I think Teysa works well too.

Last, the cuts. Fellwar Stone was replaced by a more reliable signet. Outpost Siege was just too clunky compared to similar effects. Titan Hunter and Crimson Honor Guard proved too unreliable at triggering for their mana cost. Charging Tuskodon died because my five drops needed trimming and he's too much of a glass cannon. Cleansing Nova has been replaced by more efficient options. It's modal use rarely came up compared to its clunky mana cost. Ruin Raider has proven to be much more effective at killing me than providing card advantage. Curse of Stalked Prey was fun, but often too low value compared to a signet or equipment. A shame, as I really like the card. Finally, Rite of the Raging Storm and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent weren't used well. Giving my opponents creatures does not guarantee they will use them the way I want. Better to give their existing creatures options, to make it seem like it's more their idea.

I'd probably cut Decree of Justice
Imo you'd get a lot more value out of Rite of the Raging Storm

Rite of the Raging Storm might be a good addition.
