I've been playing Blue/Black/White Solar Flare (Reanimator Control based on Unburial Rites) for a while now, and in the current aggro heavy, super fast metagame...the deck just can't seem to stand on it's own two legs. The card in the UBW version that allowed us to set up the Unburial Rites was/is Forbidden Alchemy, but with Dark Ascension now released...Faithless Looting is both faster and more consistent at setting this up. Red also gives us better cards to handle the lightning fast aggro decks like Tokens, Delver, and Human variants. We lose Snapcaster Mage to double up our spells, but Chandra can fit that role somewhat, while taking out any X/1's that hit the board. We lose Consecrated Sphinx, but we gain Inferno Titan, who can be a Plague Wind against certain decks, and is one hell of a clock.

Without further ado, here's the deck list. Let me know if there's any improvements that you think can be made, and we'll discuss them.

Creatures: (7)
3 Grave Titan
2 Inferno Titan
2 Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Removal/Control: (22)
3 Gideon Jura
3 Chandra, the Firebrand
2 Doom Blade
1 Go for the Throat
3 Galvanic Blast
2 Oblivion Ring
3 Ratchet Bomb
3 Slagstorm
2 Devil's Play

Utility: (7)
3 Unburial Rites
4 Faithless Looting

Lands: (24)
5 Swamp
4 Mountain
4 Plains
3 Dragonskull Summit
2 Blackcleave Cliffs
2 Isolated Chapel
4 Clifftop Retreat

Sideboard: (15)
3 Surgical Extraction
3 Despise
1 Slagstorm
2 Timely Reinforcements
2 Geistflame
2 Arc Trail
2 Oblivion Ring

I've been wanting to build something like this but couldn't get the numbers squared. I'll give your version a shot.

Let me know what you think of it, I haven't tested it as much as I would have liked to, but i've got solid results from it.

I don't think Chandra is really viable. Wouldn't Liliana fit the strategy a lot better?

In my very rough draft, it was supposed to be 4 Liliana and 1 or 2 Chandras, mostly for her second ability. I'll probably skip Gideon.

I've got a very similar RWb list I've been playing for a while.
I haven't settled for a SB, but here's the 60-card main:

// Lands
4 [SOM] Blackcleave Cliffs
3 [M12] Mountain (3)
2 [M12] Swamp (3)
4 [DKA] Evolving Wilds
3 [M12] Plains (3)
3 [ISD] Isolated Chapel
4 [ISD] Clifftop Retreat
1 [M12] Dragonskull Summit

// Creatures
4 [M12] Solemn Simulacrum
2 [M12] Inferno Titan
2 [SOM] Wurmcoil Engine
3 [NPH] Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
2 [M12] Archon of Justice

// Spells
2 [NPH] Gut Shot
4 [DKA] Faithless Looting
1 [ISD] Geistflame
3 [ISD] Heartless Summoning
1 [M12] Doom Blade
1 [MBS] Go for the Throat
2 [MBS] Slagstorm
1 [M12] Oblivion Ring
4 [ISD] Unburial Rites
2 [NPH] Whipflare
2 [M12] Day of Judgment

*Note* I've been considering fitting a stensia bloodhall in my list.

What do you guys think of sphere of the suns + solemn simulacrum? I worry that the deck is too slow for the meta and want to ramp.
