If you’re choosing between black and red I would pick red because of Whirler Virtuoso . It was a house in standard. Harnessed Lightning is good as well.

The kaladesh block was when I first really got into magic and I would like to make a deck themed around energy for it. My problem is that I don't know what colors to play. I was thinking for sure blue and green because Rogue Refiner is the best energy card in the game based of it being banned in standard. Green is also great because it gives Attune with Aether and Bristling Hydra But then I'm not sure whether my third color should be black or red. Red gives access to damage based sweepers like Flame Sweep and removal like Harnessed Lightning , but black gives thoughtsieze and good removal like Fatal Push and Assassin's Trophy . I'm not sure where to go here so any color help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Nice list! Twinflame and Heat Shimmer would be all-stars here, definitely recommend them. Since they give the token copies haste, it's easy to generate infinite mana with a mana dork and something like Eternal Witness.

You might like these too: Harabaz Druid, Cackling Counterpart, Quasiduplicate, Repudiate / Replicate, Snap, Depths of Desire, Archaeomancer, Harnessed Lightning, Debt of Loyalty, Fiery Gambit, Dovescape, Possibility Storm, Knowledge Pool

I could try to put one more Decoction Module on the sideboard for a one more sweeper in MD... but I don't know. Deck felt great and fun, not broken, of course. At the moment I don't have problems finding Altar of the Brood. The combo with Whirler Virtuoso I never pulled off at all. For the energy payoffs, Harnessed Lightning functions as a payoff too, thats why I put that first in the list... But Aethergeode Miner is the last piece of the combo that I usually put on the battlefield, so it generate energy in the moment it entered the battlefield.

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks Ojutai's Command is an awesome card here that I forgot, thanks! The card even can reanimate Aethergeode Miner. Reflector Mage maybe could be good, as it can be returned to our hand with Decoction Module and has sinergy with Ojutai's Command, but i don't know if spells like Abrade could be better in the Harnessed Lightning slot. Need to test... For Teferi, Time Raveler, card is strong for sure, but I don't have it, couldn't test.

Maybe the deck could more be shifted into more of a control shell with the combo, utilizing cards like Ojutai's Command to play more of a late game if the combo doesn't work early, maybe this instead of the Whirler Virtuoso combo. Reflector Mage could also be strong instead of Harnessed Lightning in disrupting aggro strategies and not wasting precious energy, but I can't really tell becasue I haven't played the deck. Also, could Teferi, Time Raveler be good in the control snese and becasue he helps dig for the combo?

I am working on a similar build based off SaffronOlive's deck. I am not sure about the Longtusk Cub 's in the sideboard. I think I'd go 2x Pithing Needle and 2x Harnessed Lightning . +1
