I'm going to try my hand at one of these Riley riddles. Enjoy, hope it's not too easy!

My prefix is 1, he would agree.

My infix encourages applause, whatever it may be.

My suffix is a rize of the Nag a' Rams, I guarantee.

The outcome of the whole thing, you can't foresee.

What am I?

I think the answer is

Randomizer

My prefix is 1, he would agree.

Rand - Rand al'Thor

My infix encourages applause, whatever it may be.

OM - not sure about this one, may be Order of Merit, a prestigious honour worthy of applause.

Alternatively, could be referring to Om - "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"

My suffix is a rize of the Nag a' Rams, I guarantee.

izer - anagram of rize as pointed out by rhsquared

The outcome of the whole thing, you can't foresee.

You won't be able to predict the outcome of a true randomizer

The word:

monopolizer because it matches the prefix and suffix because
the prefix mono means one, single
the suffix izer is an anagram (nag a ram) of rize
I can't figure out how the inflix will work out though.

Further to the comment that mono is not the right prefix, other
valid words that match the suffix are
unionizer and unitizer but again I can't figure out what the inflix might be.

    $\begingroup$ The suffix is correct! I had something else in mind for the prefix, though. $\endgroup$
