Very interesting list, and as for the wincons, one of the big problem, or bonus depending of how much money you have, is that Kess likes to go storm and/or infinite with big flashy combos like Hightide combos. You'll hardly find any casual decklist of Kess here, most of them are over 2 000$ because of the counterspells and some other really expensive cards. If you want something thats a bit more budget, you can try Doomsday + Laboratory Maniac combo or even Isochron Scepter + Copy Artifact + Dramatic Reversal + Swan Song. These are way less expensive and give you a decent wincon, but if you wanna go with something a bit more storm, you'll need cards like Mind's Desire, Yawgmoth's Will (but this card is kinda expensive and not necessary, so feel free to not use it, even though it's really strong) and Aetherflux Reservoir as a wincon to smash all your opponents down to 0. Heck, you can even go with some more classic combos of blue like the Palinchron + Deadeye Navigator combo for infinite mana! Kess also likes cards like the Increasing spells from the Dark Ascension block, so you could add Increasing Vengeance which is really good and maybe another ritual like Cabal Ritual. Or, you could also decide to go with the extra turn strategy, but this one doesn't have any specific wincons to it, just helps setup the other ones or finish games. In the end, if you don't like combo based strategy, maybe this commander isn't really for you as you can see, most of her shenanigans are based around instant win combos, which is why she's highly loved by competitive players.
Hope this helped!

I want to challenge the Doomsday + Labratory Maniac build preference for tier 1 Zur the Enchanter. The combo is very prevalent in the tier 1 meta and player awareness gives it a significant liability factor. Also with only 4 enchantments, the current tier 1 suffers from having an unreliable backup plan and little adaptability, which other Zur builds excel at.
I want to recommend another users deck Zur's Perfection by outofnothing0 who runs a budgetless, more general and harder to disrupt strategy designed for 1v1 games. I borrowed a lot of ideas from this deck which eventually replaced the lab/doomsday combo in my own version of the deck for 4 player games Principality of Zur (Tier 1 Voltron/Control).

Aetherion99 Super late response and it isn't even my deck, but the main doomsday pile is from top to bottom: Dark Ritual, Zealous Conscripts, Goblin Sledder or Mogg Raider, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Priest of Gix. When you cast Doomsday you need two mana floating to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden the first time. Once Doomsday resolves use your two mana to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and put the Priest of Gix from the bottom of your library into play. Now you have three black floating. Use two of it to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and put Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker from the bottom of your library into play. Activate him and copy the Priest of Gix, which triggers making three more black. You now have four black floating. Activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden once more paying two more black (now floating two black) and put Goblin Sledder into play. Use his ability and sacrifice himself to give Grenzo, Dungeon Warden +1/+1 until end of turn. This gives Grenzo a power of three and thus you can spend your last two black to activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden one last time and put Zealous Conscripts into play. Gain control of your own Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and untap him. Then use his ability to copy the conscripts, gain control of Kiki again and untapped him, and so on and so forth. Then attack your opponents for copious amounts of damage with some absurd amount of Zealous Conscripts. The dark ritual is there as a fail safe if your combo gets disrupted. There are other piles without Kiki that use Metallic Mimic naming goblin along with Murderous Redcap and Skirk Prospector, with the Priest of Gix and Priest of Urabrask making the mana. The Redcap can be sacrificed any number of times to the prospector as it returns with persist and the +1/+1 counter from the mimic counteracts the -1/-1 counter from persist. The damage trigger on Murderous Redcap is used to kill your opponents. If you don't have conscripts you do the same pile as the previous example but you can use kiki in place of the Priest of Urabrask.

Sgtpopnfreash, both Snapcaster Mage and Mizzix's Mastery Improve Intuition plays and enable recasting Yawgmoth's Will and Wheels from the grave even without kess, which is a good redundancy in this case. I'd probably cut one of them if I had Timetwister and Candelabra of Tawnos.

krenko can be explosive, he was my first commander and i love him to this day, that said, i recently upgraded to Wort, the Raidmother since my krenko deck has been completed and tuned for several years now, and tapping him and winning can bore your playgroup in high doses. i upgraded to wort for the color splash, so that i could run busted cards like Food Chain, Doubling Season, Gaea's Cradle and Craterhoof Behemoth, and personally i would say wort is a strict upgrade in power level, although the spell subtheme makes the deck play a bit different.
i too love goblins, hence my name, but mono red is very restrictive in edh, if i were you i would work towards either Wort, the Raidmother, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or even Shattergang Brothers, as wort and shattergang can include the above green cards as well as tons of budget green spells, while grenzo and shattergang gain access to powerful, game winning spells like Doomsday, Necropotence, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor
good luck with your Goblin Offensive :)

I wouldn't just add a Doomsday package to a re-animator list. Doomsday is really not that great of a win condition. The only thing it has going for it is how fast it is and how well it works with enablers such as Ad Nauseam. If you build your deck around Reanimate style effects you dilute the Doomsday plan and you lose the speed that it can sometimes go off with. A better secondary plan is to just Notion Thief and Wheel of Fortune to empty everyones hands and draw 28.

Hi Sgtpopnfreash,After using this list, I found myself playing with opponents tutoring for grave-hate cards especially with people who Ive combod out previously. My question is, arent you considering another combo-win outside the graveyard? Your thoughts on this please if youre not busy?

Quick throwback to the Kaalia question - While I know most Kaalia decks are stax builds that use Armageddonesque effects to hate on opponents' mana bases, how well would a much more combo heavy Kalia deck work? I have thrown together a list found here:
Commander / EDH*
which tries to blend a bunc hof combos together. You have the Doomsday/Hellcarver Demon combo with Kiki-Jiki/Celebrant as well as combos like Resto Angel/Kiki and Karmic Guide + Kiki + Goblin Bombardment. The deck has much less reliance on Kaalia but still uses her to deploy key combo pieces.
Keen to get people's thoughts.
