So with the new rotation, I really liked the idea of a new type of reanimator, the only thing i had to do was choose a type. I think this build off of frites can be very promising. Please give any feedback that you can. =P
actually the biggest things i need help with is a good manabase and a sideboard.
card:Jarad's Orders seems so good here, considering you already have green(Over Grisly Salvage as your 2 drops are not as essential with your mana producers). The Armada Wurm doesn't seem like it does much other than create 10 power and I feel like you could run some mainboard removal in it's place, i.e. Oblivion Ring , Abrupt Decay , Dreadbore . If you cut both of those you still have a solid creature base to deal decent amounts of damage with prior to reanimating a bomb.

I was thinking about card:Jarad's Orders but wasnt 100% sure if it really helped me out as much. The only question I have is which is better, Mulch or Grisly Salvage ? And I'll try adding in more removal and see how the playtesting goes from there.

I usually would say Mulch is better here, as you want to be hitting your lands, but with the flexibility and the deeper digging of Grisly Salvage might just be better as it can can allow you to grab either a useful creature or land depending on what you need and can be cast on the end of an opponents turn to hold up Abrupt Decay mana. card:Jarad's Orders can probably also be a 3 off as while you do need it, you only need it once, max twice, anymore times means you've probably already lost. A forth salvage might be better here. Another important note is that card:Jarad's Orders allows you to run less of the same bomb, as it can fetch it from anywhere in the deck, allowing you to make room for other cards if you feel you need them.

Thragtusk is out of place here its not as big of a bomb as reanimator needs

Geoxis: ive found that usually getting one angel of serenity out is enough to help me when. Even when they kill it, since they all go back to their hand, it give me plenty of time to cast Unburial Rites again. and the only other angel that could help would be Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . but so far i havent seen a need, but i may playtest a few other bombs, just in case

How has Faithless looting been working out for you? I'm running Frites at the moment as well, and Faithless just doesn't look like it would be worth splashing Red for here. Then again, I don't run Faithless. But if I were you, I would be considering something on-color to run in its slot.

So far faithless looting has been helpful if only to help dig farther into your deck. I havent had much of a problem with splashing red for it with all the dual lands in standard right now and it really helps to expand my sideboard. My only question is, what would be another card to run in its slot?

I run frites and it is my personal opinion that you should run a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight as she makes the clock so much faster plus she is insane with Griselbrand . As for Faithless Looting is a necessary evil yes it is not the most exciting but it is necessary to have a way to get rid of fatties if they end up in your hand. Also maybe find room for one Zealous Conscripts as sometimes it just wins you games taking their best creature and bashing or ultimating an opponents planeswalker. You don't have to mainboard it but it is a good sideboard card at least especially in a mirror match (killing an opposing frites player with their Griselbrand sounds fun).

If you're concerned about drawing into your reanimator targets, I just use Lotleth Troll for that. It's a very efficient creature, there's no cost to discard it, it's repeatable, and it's on color for the deck.
