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 Lighnting Rager. It has trample, haste, and "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this creature."
Rite of the Raging Storm Discussion

I would highly recommend using Torbran, Thane of Red Fell over this legend. Though she can give you a lot of cards, it's not permanent. I'd also consider adding enchantments like Circle of Flame and Rite of the Raging Storm to discourage people from attacking you. I also just think that there isn't a lot of cheap red cards which can really win you the game outside of Sneak Attack into some crazy combo.
Either way, seems like an interesting deck with maybe some storm potential. Good luck!

I like this deck a lot! Especially fond of Rite of the Raging Storm and the non-combat win-cons! Excited to see it in action!!

A fun current target for Clever Impersonator is Rite of the Raging Storm as it came in the Naya populate deck, especially with the double etb trigger, that means 3 5/1 Creatures swinging at your opponents every turn which suddenly brings you to head to head with the Naya player very quickly.

Hi SwiftDeath, thx for your suggestions, I really appreciate it!
Skullclamp : Performed quite well so far. Has inherent synergy with the commander, it's a turn1 drop with no coloured mana requirements, draws plenty of cards and always has tokens around to "clamp" ( Queen Marchesa , Ogre Slumlord , Ophiomancer , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Rite of the Raging Storm , to name a few). It's even often the case that I equip a creature that Skullclamp does not kill and then proceed to sac that creature to an ability or spell.
Sunforger : I checked your build and you have a whopping 15 targets for it. Should really shine on your deck! Mine currently runs only 4 legal targets making sunforger way less appealing. It will soon be 5 targets as I am going to cut Vindicate for it's instant-speed counterpart Generous Gift . I'll add it to my Maybeboard and keep an eye on my Instants package.
Sun Titan : 6 cmc slots were already pretty crowded but yeah, I should probably run this anyway!
Rakdos Charm / Mimic Vat : Overall am satisfied with my graveyard hate package ( Rakdos Charm , Bojuka Bog and Relic of Progenitus ) This last one may be a wasted slot but is also a concession to turn1 plays and a proper mana curve :) Regarding Mimic Vat , my creatures (with some exceptions) are mostly of the pillow-fort/rattlesnake type that perform by being in play and using the Vat on them is really unexciting. Of course that I can see it being useful using it on the opponents creature but atm I am going more for graveyard hate that catch everything and not just creatures.
Kaya's Guile : When I saw the spoiler I got really excited about this card but after reading it multiple times it become clear that besides the exile graveyards option all the other ones are underwhelming. Specially the first, you will of curse remove some "weeds" from your lawn but the "cactus" that you NEED to take care of will "thorn your derriere".
Blind Obedience : Not the kind of effect I am looking for. I want my opponents to attack as soon as they can. Not me though.
Asha's Favor / Sword of Vengeance : Not a fan of the aura as it will often just go to the GY because my opponents killed my creature in response. The Sword of Vengeance is another story. Will stick around and does two things that benefit greatly my deathtouchers giving them First Strike and Vigilance. I will add it to the maybeboard and try it out.
Regarding your list, is your deck performing with only 30 lands? Seems way too low and besides that you should also look into reducing a bit the number of spells on your 3cmc and 4cmc slots. I think that these changes alone will allow your deck to run smoother.

Decks that give things to other people are always pretty cool, and having all five colors gives you a lot of control over how to make that happen.
You know who's cool? Xantcha, Sleeper Agent . In terms of cards that give other people cards, this is a cool card that gives someone a card. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good one too, though I suspect it doesn't let you choose who gets it in the same way as these other ones. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and Akroan Horse as well. I was going to bring up Sylvan Offering , but you have it already.
Two of my favorite cards in the game are Coveted Jewel and Stuffy Doll . Both of these are pretty neat; they encourage people to attack you, but move that damage around. Stuffy Doll is a great way to get around opponents pillow forts, etc, while coveted jewel is great for you specifically, giving you much needed mana (not that you lack mana, but 5 color decks can always use a card that can give all 5) and card draw. In my own Thantis deck, I found both these cards to be worth a ton of political leverage.

Cool deck! +1 from me.
Mind if I suggest a few things?
Teferi's Protection is expensive but a superb way to save yourself if something goes horribly wrong.
I am not sure you are tribal enough to be running Vanquisher's Banner , likewise Skullclamp seems out of place here. I think you would do better with more wheel effects or Mask of Memory for card draw.

In my Marchesa deck i like to run the curses ( Curse of Opulence , Curse of Vitality and Curse of Disturbance ) and Rite of the Raging Storm to spread hate among my opponents. Not the best cards around but if you just want to have some fun i reccomend them.
Rite of the Raging Storm occurrence in decks from the last year
