How do you energize 5?

This color has incredibly weak energy options and no planeswalker that creates energy. I'm assuming you have to go with Sarkhan in order to make energy reliable and viable, but not even sold on that yet.

How is anyone else doing it?

Edit: doing this without event exclusive cards, please.

    Decoction Module and Oath of Liliana (or FUTF) is doing it for me.

    <sigh> I missed Oath of Liliana was a progression reward since I was still so new icon_e_sad.gif but the other should help.

    Live Fast

    Or you can use Gonti's Machinations

    This is a bit late, but since the event may return - I used Live Fast, Die Young, Multiform Wonder, and Aether Hub.

    That was enough to get me the 5 energy consistently and didn't hurt the overall effectiveness of my deck (silver tier).

    devils playground is red so can't fit into a sorin deck?
    maybe you're thinking of sarkhan?
    any multiple token generator works well with decoction
    module. preferably you might have at least one card
    with overload.

    Ruinous Path also works well with Decoction Module.

    Seeing a lot of these posts, makes sense why I'm having so much trouble. I don't have a lot of these cards you've all been mentioning. I have a large collection, but I am missing a LOT of key rares. I did manage to get the 5 energy by running Sarkhan for the event and just using red energize cards like Maulfist Doorbuster, Aethertouch Renegade, and Electrostatic Pummeler, then, of course, with my final progression reward, my pack contained Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, possibly the best energy generator for black.... disappointing I didn't have this going in, but at least I have it now for when the event returns.

    I didn't get Aetherworks Marvel because I didn't place top 25 across all tiers. That's why I asked not to include event reward cards. I also don't have Dynavolt Tower for the same reason.

    Decoction module is your best bet, as it is an uncommon card. On black node you can run any type of zombie recursion to get the job done. I just take my L2 deck and swap out Graf Harvest for Decoction module. Rely on Prized Amalgam and Diregraf to block ground pounders, and kill spells to take care of flyers. It is literally the only node where I bother attempting to get all ribbons.

    Since my original posting, I managed to get to pull cards that have made energize pretty easy. Running Glint-Sleve Siphoner in my Ob Nixilis deck since it adds energy and has good synergy with his normal strategy (remove energy and draw a card) along with Gonti's Machinations. Those two have been enough to get that energize 5 ribbon.
