Undying/Blinking deck for maximum irritation.
Cloudshifting Fiend Hunter for last minute creature control, Undying Evil on Fiend Hunter too to sac for Demonlord of Ashmouth or even flashing Unburial Rites to summon Typhoid Rats. Emancipation Angel would be used to return creatures with Undying so that can urm, die again. So the 3 major win-con cards are Cloudshift, Unburial Rites and Undying Evil since they trigger the ETB abilities of the creatures in the deck.
I like this so much it inspired to make one similar but not as budget, though still not too pricey. deck:angels-vs-demons-1. Also wondering the reason for Barter in Blood over Bone Splinters ? or is it just a kill more of his creatures (even if they have indestructible) thing?

A few people actually run Sigarda, Host of Herons , so you may want to consider adding some kind of clone effect to get rid of her (Clone , Phyrexian Metamorph , Phantasmal Image , Evil Twin , Cryptoplasm , etc). Clones also interact favorably when they copy undying dudes.

Now tell us, what it does!
Granted it looks cool. especially given that i love the very idea of a budget deck.

Well, it's a control deck mostly so it's kinda hard to have a specific win-con or specific way on how it runs but I include a short description, hope it clear things up.
As for Sigarda, Host of Herons , I guess that only answer to her for this deck currently is to just ramp her in the face with Demonlord of Ashmouth or a nibble from Typhoid Rats :D (that's why I like Unburial Rites ... dat flashback )

I'm not a huge fan of the typhoid rats. They don't really work with the blink/bounce thing now that damage doesn't use the stack - I'd prefer something like Ravenous rats. Then again, the only 1 drop with a ETB ability is the less-than-sexy Cathedral Sanctifier . It's not really a control deck (you only have 8 removal spells + Fiend Hunter s), but I really see it as an aggro deck with a lot of synergy and mini-combos.
If you want to add more cards, I'd say dropping the Unburial Rites and Demonlord to 3-ofs. Gravecrawler s would be fantastic in this deck, but a full playset would take this out of budget territory. Otherwise, it looks really good. Good luck!
