So I came up with a riff that goes G D F D three times, then C#5 C5 power chords.

It's pretty dissonant sounding to my ears. What could I use over this riff? G natural minor doesn't seem to work well. Maybe some kind of diminished scale?

Gm pentatonic should work fine. G natural minor contains tones that may clash with some of the single notes and the C#5 chord, but those are generally avoided by the pentatonic. (Of course, you want clash with the C# chord, but A and Eb sound weird to me, and not in a good way.)

Yeah, I just realized that this is basically a Gm pentatonic riff.

G Blues scale should work.
