I love Valduk, he's one of the most consistent mono-red commanders for me performance-wise.

You should check out some of the quirky interactions you can do with Valduk I've got going on in my deck: The Duke's Fortress

Big suggestions from me would be: Betrothed of Fire , Bravado , Butcher's Cleaver , Elemental Mastery , Goblin Welder , Hamletback Goliath , The Brute , Tilonalli's Summoner Vicious Shadows

Nice! Did not know about Dingus Staff that is a great option thanks. I have thought about Vicious Shadows looks great, but it is quite expensive at 7 mana.

MagicalHacker on Board Wipe Win-cons?

I have a deck capitalizing on non-damage based board wipes and three massive win cons are Dingus Staff , Burning Sands , and Vicious Shadows .

Arcane Laboratory seems like it would work quite well, since it will keep your opponent's hands full, slow them down and force them to discard to hand size, which works with your cards like Raider's Wake and Nath.

Darigaaz, the Igniter could be a cool way to deal tons of damage.

Dreamborn Muse could easily mill opponents by 10 or more every turn.

Jace's Archivist lets you Windfall every turn.

Multani, Maro-Sorcerer seems like a perfect fit for your deck.

Meishin, the Mind Cage can make pretty much any creature useless at attacking.

Nightmare Unmaking seems like a decent boardwipe that you could control to some degree.

Price of Knowledge could be a cool way to deal tons of damage.

Realm Seekers will usually be huge and provide you with as much ramp as you'll ever need.

Sword of War and Peace is amazing, but is even better in your deck.

Vicious Shadows can combo with a board wipe to kill a whole table at once.

So I second the inclusion of Greven, Predator Captain (might even be a commander for this deck). Here are a couple other cards to consider: Warstorm Surge, Haktos the Unscarred, Stalking Vengeance and Vicious Shadows.
