I think flagbearers would be useful.
And also, do you gain life at a solid enough quip to include Resplendent Angel?

i would take out Lone Missionary for Veteran Armorer or Lumithread Field to protect your creatures form Electrickery . Cut a Mourning Thrull , a Soul Warden OR a Soul's Attendant and a Plains for 3x Night's Whisper , you are going to need the card draw. Replace the Castigate with Harsh Sustenance or Unmake.
Take out Shadowfeed and put in Beckon Apparition , i think it will synergies with with the soul sisters and Edge of the Divinity by giving you a white/black creature token. take out Nihil Spellbomb for Relic of Progenitus , trade out the Swamp in the sideboard for a Bojuka Bog or 2x by taking out 1x Bonesplitter . Replace the Castigate and Disenchant with 3x Standard Bearer.
sorry about the last post with no hyperlinks to the card names. i am new

Here are some other vegetablely ideas. Some of these are obviously more effective than others, and some I had to think about for a moment to see the interactions, but they're all fun.
Arena Athlete, Astral Steel, Bonus Round, Coalition Flag and Standard Bearer (force people to target a creature, then give it protection at instant speed), Finale of Promise, Mirrorwing Dragon (because you can repeatedly protect your field even if someone tries to use this against you), Primal Wellspring, Pyromancer's Goggles, Radiate, and Veilstone Amulet.

Altoman, there are good points in your input. Firstly, yes, it intends to be not necessarily a control strategy, but a midrangey strategy. That's the reason I'm packing Rotting Rats instead of Stinkweed Imp , along with removal. I know ub and br reanimator are somewhat established archetypes, but that's not what I'm trying to achieve, I've played turbo exhume on RB and Ub Reanimator with Striped Riverwinder for a while and got bored of them. The concept of this new intent is to play WB since is the only color combination which allows you to play more than four reanimation spells in your deck, even up to 16 if you feel like doing it, and that's the very reason I wouldn't like to move from white (although I could think about splashing a third color as the professor did on his Mardu Reanimator deck https://youtu.be/Pun-et4nIP0).
That said, I agree I might need either some protection for the reanimated creatures, a faster deck, or (IMO) even more reanimation spells. On protection, I can stay on white and pack a couple Benevolent Bodyguard s, Standard Bearer s, Apostle's Blessing , Emerge Unscathed , or hand interaction as Duress .
Ulamog's crusher is no Emrakul, but is probably the best reanimation target on pauper right now, and it can win you a game on its own on early turns (mid to late game is more difficult, depending on what you're facing), and that's why is the founding concept of the turbo RB variant. I could very well pack 1/2 copies of Dragon Breath which are proven to steal a couple games every now and then (but for any decks playing unsummon, assuming you win g1, they still only have to leave 1 Mana open to ruin your plans).
What I was thinking about is playing more resilient biggies as Walker of the Grove , Striped Riverwinder , or anything with hexproof, shroud, regeneration or with an interesting ETB/leave the battlefield effect. I'll probably keep crusher, because of his raw power is worth it, then probably cut some stuff like horror of the broken lands, nightstalker, and cycling creatures for either more symmetrical discard, hand filtering\drawing ( Night's Whisper , Dusk Legion Zealot and friends come to mind) or hand disruption along with the aforementioned resilient critters. I believe V 2.0 might have something of that. What do you think?

mal099 I'm gonna goldfish a version with some Pentad Prism , Sandstone Needle and the aforementioned cards. I believe you still need to pack some Faithless Looting for card filtering, or at least Thraben Inspector since it's really necessary to have some card draw/filtering for combo pieces. Also you should have some mainboard protection like Standard Bearer , Benevolent Bodyguard or Apostle's Blessing (try not to get rid of yer own auras against white decks) since there's plenty of non-destructive removal around. Also, keep in mind that it's a 3 card combo so on an optimal build you're packing 8 copies of each combo piece, which leaves you little room for removal, protection, ramp, lands, reanimation or whatever you want to fill your deck with.

Emerge Unscathed gets you 2 triggers costing only 1cc and protection, Test of Faith is a neat combat trick for killing pretty much any early creature and giving you a neat early clock as well as triggering and saving your cmdr, Dawn Charm , Benevolent Bodyguard , Standard Bearer give you protection to every creature and Palace Sentinels gives you a bit much needed card draw in white.
thats all i got.
