This is a deck I've been working on for a while. It wins through either Reanimating a big creature or using Vedalken Shackles. The Trinket Mage shell was added to make better use of Thirst for Knowledge, which is necessary for discarding drawn creatures or Unburial Rites.

The sideboard is loose, and the mana base seems poor to me. Advice etc etc.

I'm not sure what trinket mage adds to the deck. It a very clunky answer card and it doesn't help your reanimation plan. Your decks needs more cheap answers to help survive until you can resolve a gifts or shackles.
I'm pretty sure you want a couple of counterspells, another snapcaster and a damnation.
I don't think thirst for knowledge is needed at all, you could use liliana of the veil instead and get rid of the crappy artifacts.
