Thanks! I do enjoy piloting reanimator decks. Mardu is my competitive version currently but esper is quite powerful. I put this together orginally to showcase reanimator synergy with Fabricate. That is now being reworked because fabricate colors are Green, White, Black which lack a discard mechanic outside of gate.
With regard to gearhulks. I build this to minimize the downside of G-PG (make creatures 4/4) Noxious is always good (i run him side)it loses 1 power to scarab and gift. cataclysmic can be useful depending on the matchup and loses 1 toughness. torrential is definitely problematic as long as you find interesting things to flash back, it loses 1 power 2 toughness. This was why i had smaller creatures with cool abilities. The big plus is that you can run Refurbish.
Examples of interesting instants to flashback that are NOT staples...
Time to Reflect. Consign / Oblivion. Failure / Comply. Siren's Ruse. Acrobatic Maneuver. Disappearing Act. Essence Extraction. Farm / Market. Ritual of Rejuvenation. Start / Finish. Tragic Lesson. Pull from Tomorrow. Failed Inspection. Insidious Will... i could keep going but you can see how esper can make things interesting. Nox in play, acrobatic maneuver on nox, draw, reanimate torrential, flashback acrobatic maneuever on nox again, draw a card = lols? These are all instants to make use of torrential. Go nuts!
Just remember you can always board into 1 of 3 different modes. Mode 1... creatures (like the deck i have built). Mode 2... control (like the deck you are intending to make) and finally mode 3... mill with The Scarab God+ Fraying Sanity+ Fleet Swallower+ Embalmer's Tools ...reanimated creatures are zombies. Could be interesting! Hope my passion for reanimator has been insightful lol. Like i said before i enjoy piloting these decks.Esper is very versatile.

I want to build this deck kind of deck too, have you thought about Consign / Oblivion and other bounce spells to make sure your opponent has something to discard. Deadeye Tormentor could also be useful since it jives with raiders' wake, maybe also some evasive to hopefully trigger raid turn after turn.

I've been running Spontaneous Mutation in place of Unsummon against all of the aggro out there (I even mainboard 2 of them). I've had way too many times they just cast the same haste creature the very next turn. I've also been running Aether Hub in place of some of the Islands. Consign / Oblivion has been my go-to instead of Winds of Rebuke. I've had Winds mill my important cards way too many times to remember. Definitely need a Crook of Condemnation or two in the sideboard.
Some other creatures you may want to consider are Curator of Mysteries (enable delirium, cycle, or just a big blocker) and Shielded Aether Thief (decent blocker, flash and card draw if you are including the Aether Hubs).

Some other cards I've been thinking of:
Consign / Oblivion I think it's nice... although, I rather really prefer Unsubstantiate as I don't do anything with Oblivion unless I splash black. And I don't want HIM to discard cards, as that counteracts my fevered visions.
Hour of Devastation This one is actually a much better boardwipe than I had foreseen. It doesn't kill the Locust God Well, it does, but the locust god doesn't care. and my Torrential Gearhulk, however it does kill Kefnet, and everything else.
Pull from Tomorrow It's a much slower draw source, but it draws a lot more.

With Glimmer of Genius you want a deck that is already running some energy-centric package. It helps resupply in multiple ways, but won't help you apply pressure immediately. Adding Dynavolt Tower to your sideboard would help to buffer against any aggressive strategies and create more synergy for Glimmer of Genius. Edifice of Authority can be used here instead if you drop Glimmer of Genius from your build, as it does not require energy to use. Essence Extraction can be used to kill off a haste creature and recoup life lost from an attacker that slipped through. Grip of the Roil can frost a creature and draw you a card. Lay Bare the Heart synergizes with Fraying Sanity and removes threats before your opponent can cast them. Manic Scribe has an etb mill 3 and can then block for you. Consign / Oblivion can stall a spell and then aftermath to make them discard it which will work with Fraying Sanity. Those are some options to consider while tinkering with your build, I hope something catches your eye.

Baral has been a consideration bc of how good he is if you can untap with him, however as far as early turns he plays a bit contrary to your goal. If you curve into him you could Startled Awake on 3, but you really want Fraying Sanity out first. This version leans on startled and Sanity and ways to survive so you can dig for them, it rarely slow mills and very frequently combo mills. As far as Winds of Rebuke I've got Consign / Oblivion in that slot right now, and though I don't frequently use the oblivion side, it has come up. Currently I'm leaning on the versatility of the card over winds (though it mills) though that may change.
Thanks for the upvote!
