Lotleth Troll seems like a good discard source

The new standard early on will be mostly aggro if you plan on going with a more esper control type of reanimator deck I'd suggest adding in more control, you probably will need 6-8 sorcery sweepers and mainboard the Detention Sphere . But if you want a more frites deck style I'd suggest cutting blue as you don't need Forbidden Alchemy anymore Grisly Salvage is more effective and you can even go as far as card:Jarad's Orders.

I would run at least 2-3x Terminus mainboard. The card is ridiculous in a lot of matchups... With card manipulation like Forbidden Alchemy , you have a large chance of getting a miracled Terminus

On planeswalkers - You need to run 3x Liliana of the Veil if you like her. If you draw more than one, simply discard one to the other.

All in all, the Solar Flare/long range control deck is pretty much dead - unless you run 6-8 board wipes as Demarge said. I would run 3-4x Think Twice in here also.

For board wipes, I would recommend 4x Supreme Verdict and 3x Terminus , or vice versa on the numbers.

Lili's lost some appeal with the loss of Sun Titan though Treasured Find would be pretty cool here with all the graveyard interactions you'll be getting. I've found Mulch to be a brilliant mana fixer and graveyard enabler, i'd strongly suggest adding it to the deck. Maybe even Grisly Salvage or card:Jarad's Orders would be good here...

@atreyujames- I'm not sure why you suggested lotleth troll. I agree that it is a good discard outlet but in this deck it would never work. Even if I had enough creatures to consistantly pump him, the mana base would never allow him to be played effectively.

@demarge- I am definately going with a more solar flare type build. Mainly to have the safety of sweepers followed by a tamiyo.

@fireteam- while long range control decks are going to be weaker than they have been, I don't believe they are dead just yet. Angel of Serentiy has got to be the best thing to happen to control since the uncounterable wrath of god.

@gheriderigaaz- keep in mind that this isn't a frites deck. All of those suggestions put a huge strain on the mana base. If mana problems ever arise during testing, mulch would be a good fixer and treasured find is a ggood way to get back a tamiyo or supreme verdict that was milled away.

You could run more Griselbrand as he gets you life like Thragtusk and he is great for a reanimation target. -3 Thragtusk +2 Griselbrand +1 Unburial Rites would do well.

Or even Avacyn, Angel of Hope to protect against Supreme Verdict
