Here is a wordy but interesting  mechanic I made for a B/R Dwarf faction. The Ghurzad are greedy and reckless in their neverending search for gold.

Dig [Number] (Exile the top [Number] cards of your library, then put a colorless Gold artifact token onto the battlefield for each land card exiled this way. They have “Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.”)

It’s red because it’s reckless, and it’s black because it’s greedy. Giving up cards in exchange for ramp/artifacts is clearly B/R to me.

  1. This is as broken as Storm. Ghurzad Mineworker, for instance, is way better than Birds of Paradise, which is a very high-profile mana dork.
