Very viable.

Paradox Engine + Planar Portal + Many Mana Rocks is not an uncommon situation to find yourself in. Spit out an unkillable boardstate and you're golden.

Im partial to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger as the commander, as he serves as near-unstoppable threat removal. And the more they kill him (well, not kill, as he's indestructible) the more threats he removes. Not to mention if he sticks and swings, you can knock out combo decks pretty easily, which is very important for how aggro you'll be.

Educate yourself before you spout childish drivel.

Energy was a mechanic in Kaladesh, representative of mechanical power supplied by Aether, which was separate from mana. It was logical for the block because it was very technology-oriented in terms of both story and design. It simply offered a new mechanic to play with, an entirely optional one, mind you. There are no cards that punished you for not using energy, and decks that don't use energy were and are still played just fine.

Mana is natural magic derived from leylines. Energy represented power derived from Aether for use in machinery; magic used non-magically, as Kaladesh lore-wise had an aversion to mages. That's why, if creatures did use or give you energy, they either had some connection to Aether, such as Aether whales, or they used that energy for machine purposes, like making artifact tokens. Other creatures don't use energy because they don't have a natural link to those things in that way; that's not to say they aren't powerful in their own right, though.

Really, its not a complicated reasoning for the coexistence of Energy and Mana. You're just a wolf-crying fool.

It isn't an insult, first of all. That would be calling him stupid for coming up with such a tired and cliche idea, which I did not do did not intend to imply.

The concept of an interdimensional compulsory colosseum is very overused. The two examples that come to mind first are Teen Titans and Ratchet: Deadlocked, but it is a concept that's been repeated time and time again. Its a bit too... Uninspired for a magic plane, much less a set.

Tired and cliche. Next.

I just want to go to Luvion, as depicted in Celestine Reef.

Ocean plane! Leviathans! Pegasi! Woo!

He dead.

The idea is you would use his first 0 ability on a 1 or 2 power creature, so he stays alive and transforms.

Who else noticed that the set symbol flips too? That's flipping awesome.

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder lacks White and Narset, Enlightened Master lacks Black and Green, all of which are really important colors for superfriends, even if you think Red isn't. Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Ajani Steadfast, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Liliana Vess, Sorin Markov, etc. Not to mention mana fixing cards like Oath of Nissa and protective cards like Sphere of Safety.

I am partial to Ramos, Dragon Engine. I feel the red is a necessary, if splashy inclusion for planeswalkers such as Ral Zarek, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. Conflux is also a great card to have to seek out nearly all your combo pieces at the very end.
