That's really all you need. Melodic minor maybe, and the Phrygian mode. But basically just the harmonic minor.

Major scales + modes are handy too. Not all shred's gotta be in minor

all the major scale modes,augmented scale, diminished, whole tone scale,melodic minor modes and some chromatic stuff!
#5
Phrygian dominate and Harmonic minor

Those are the scales id get comfortable with

Also work on applying arpeggios to whatever you're playing, thats essential to get a classical style sound going. And there are multiple ways to play them tapping, sweeping ect ect.

Augmented and diminished are pretty important.

Major, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, and the modes for each. That's most of it. I have some music theory on my site for those that want to learn. neoclassicalmetal.org
