Honestly, not too much going on here.

I LOVE cheap utility creatures. This one blows up Sol Ring AND makes opponent's Sol Rings come in tapped? Yes please. Also good for blowing up other stuff as well I guess. But I hate Sol Ring so much. Any cheap creature that blow up Sol Ring is fine by me. Also fetchable with Woodland Bellower too which is a plus!

I've been looking to cut this for a while. Card is fine but never really does anything. Easy swap.

Arlinn Kord Flip hasn't yet made an impact in Standard, but the time may be now for it to happen. Two cards in Amonkhet have fantastic synergy with her, Rhonas the Indomitable and Glorybringer. Both are already extremely powerful and Arlinn makes them even better. Arlinn's +1 ability giving a creature +2/+2 vigilance and haste is excellent with Rhonas the Indomitable not because it can give him haste, although that's powerful, but because it can make any 2 power Elf into a 4 power one which allows him to attack or block. With Arlinn and any other 2 power creature in play makes it much easier to turn on Rhonas. Arlinn can also make a 2/2 Wolf using her 0 ability which helps to keep a creature in play for Rhonas.
I've only mentioned one red card, Khenra Charioteer who I think has potential splashing red in this deck. I completely overlooked Glorybringer for this deck because it's cost is which is problematic when trying to splash a color. Also the drawback of exert not letting the creature untap for my next turn seemed very steep. Glorybringer is however busted because I don't have to use it's exert when it attacks, the exert ability is a may. I can simply continuously turn after turn attack with the 4/4 flying Dragon without exerting if I don't need to. Glorybringer has 4 power it alone turns on Rhonas and the two can hit for minimum 9 points of damage in one swing, which is nuts. While the double red cost of Glorybringer will make it harder to cast I think it's completely worth configuring this manabase to support it.
Glorybringer and Arlinn Kord Flip have crazy synergy because Arlinn can give the Dragon vigilance. Vigilance is the ability which makes exert way too powerful especially with Glorybringer. Exerting is done after I declare my attackers I don't have to tap the exert creature to get the exert bonuses all I have to do is attack with the creature. This is why vigilance is so good with exert because I don't have to tap a creature with vigilance to attack thus the exert creature never has to tap while still getting the exert bonues with no drawback. Arlinn's +1 ability takes away to the drawback of Glorybringer making it a 4 damage creature removal spell on a stick while also doing 6 damage in the air.
Arlinn, Embraced by the Moon has synergy with all the other Elves/ Creatures and Rhonas in this deck because they all get +1/+1 and trample. Trample is one of the best abilities with Elves and Rhonas because his minimum 5 attack power can no longer be chump blocked. Trample also gives my army a way to break through stalled game states where both mine and my opponent's battlefield is clogged with creatures or in the case of my opponent tokens.
Servant of the Conduit and Rishkar, Peema Renegade bring a ramp strategy to this deck which is great with both Arlinn Kord Flip and Glorybringer. Especially the Dragon because the earlier I get it into play the more damage it can do and the more fear it can put in my opponent. Creatures with counters on them from Rishkar or Verdurous Gearhulk who get vigilance from Arlinn's ability can pull double duty as attackers and mana ramp which is an added strength that Arlinn brings.
I've used Harnessed Lightning in the previous Temur version of Energy Elves and found it very good. Since I'm now splashing red as well as still using an energy strategy it makes sense to use Harnessed again as my go to creature removal spell. I like that Harnessed is unconditional creature removal, all I need is enough energy to support it which the energy strategy especially Attune with Aether does well. Amonkhet has many powerful five drops who most will see play especially Glorybringer and Angel of Sanctions. Harnessed can kill these creatures for two mana and one additional energy which is very good. Five drops are the drawback of Fatal Push since it can't kill them. My main deck removal spell needs to be able to kill Felidar Guardian and Heart of Kiran which Harness can do.
Four-Color Energy Elves
Using Four-Color Saheeli as a template Energy Elves is now four colors. Green is the primary color, White is for Cast Out, Blue is for Skyrider Elf and Red is for Glorybringer and Harnessed Lightning. The four colors are powered by the energy strategy of Servant of the Conduit, Attune with Aether, Aether Hub and Harnessed Lightning. Oath of Nissa is here to help with consistency because it can find lands. It can also find Rhonas the Indomitable, Glorybringer or Arlinn Kord Flip because of this I've reduced them only 2 ofs main deck. The Elves core of Servant of the Conduit, Skyrider Elf, Sylvan Advocate and Rishkar, Peema Renegade remains as does Verdurous Gearhulk. Woodland Wanderer is being cut for Arlinn Kord Flip and Tireless Tracker is put into the sideboard. A lone copy of Tamiyo, Field Researcher remains because she's excellent with Rhonas.
