Chaddish it hasn't been optimised as my partner hasn't figured out what she likes/dislikes about it yet, and as it's her first EDH deck it's not going to be super competitive yet. As well as that, it's more of a social deck too.

That being said, there are a couple of wincons. The less obivous and more difficult is draining your opponents out,Cauldron Familiar doesn't target so you can start the incremental damage there. If you're smart with the curses, Trespasser's Curse, Curse of Fool's Wisdom and a flipped Accursed Witch  Flip can start to add up. Torment of Scarabs and Cruel Reality can help here too but are reliant on them not wanting to lose resources, but that can still be helpful. Leechridden Swamp can add to this total too.

The clearest would be creature beatdown, 3/3 Demons from Tasha, the Witch Queen. It relies on opponents dealing damage to other opponents usually, but our playgroup is quite creature centric anyway. The curses can help here too; Curse of the Restless Dead, and Curse of Disturbance give you (and opponents) extra Zombies to push through some damage.

The most fun but least consistent way of winning is the wincons not in your deck - taking them via Tasha or other stealing means. A particular favourite of mine was Coffin Queen resurrecting a Gray Merchant of Asphodel for a double kill.

That being said, this deck is still in the early stages and will change over time - mostly as my partner figures out the way she wants to play the deck. At the moment it's a casual flavourful start, but I'll keep updating it as it gets more competitive too.

Sorry for not saying anything for a long while, Dead_Blue_ and Squee_Spirit_Guide. Life has been a bit complicated. I'll answer both of you in order.

Squee_Spirit_Guide, trying to build things in colors different from the usual has been something I consider when planning a new deck. I remember seeing in someone's profile a Jeskai Zombies deck and I still have that ideia on my mind.

About your suggestions, Soul Reap is interesting, maybe I can find a spot for it in the sideboard. Leechridden Swamp and Syphon Life seem a bit too slow for the deck, especially the Syphon Life as it's for just 2 damage.

Dead_Blue_, thanks for the suggestions, but none of them seem useful for the deck. If look at other comments here, you'll see Fruit of Tizerus is a debatable inclusion, so I feel Vicious Rumors isn't worth. The other two however... Aren't very budget, and the idea of this list is exactly to be a budget fun deck.

Guessing Leechridden Swamp is not legal in modern? Same as Thrashing Wumpus... :(

I think learning things the janky way is the best way to learn :) And I love decks that do things their colours aren't inherently meant to! What do you think about Syphon Life and maybe Leechridden Swamp? Also, Soul Reap might be decent in the sideboard.

I used to run Rakdos as a demon tribal commander and found great use in Cryptolith Fragment  Flip & Leechridden Swamp

It's really pricey atm, but I suspect The Meathook Massacre would do some work in here. It is Legendary though, so you might only want the 1.

Is Pestilence worth a look? It's 4 mana, but it's a strong effect. Also questionable, but Leechridden Swamp might work, and it hits each opponent.

Also for insight on the VOW decks...

Millicent, Restless Revenant relies on you amassing a ton of spirits on-board to really do her thing, but the engine feeds itself. Once you have a bunch, they're monstrously hard to get rid of and keep multiplying thanks to her ability. She snowballs very quickly with steady card draw. I modified my Millicent with a few more Bident of Thassa effects to really take advantage of the plentiful bodies to keep the cards coming and she can explode and become a menace very quickly.

Strefan, Maurer Progenitor is a beatstick-y guy on his surface...he wants you to cheat in giant vampires. But there's trickiness there too. Making blood tokens with small damage sources like Leechridden Swamp, and you can easily make the deck more of a reanimator/graveyard matters deck or even have an artifact matters subtheme because of the blood tokens. Good thing Bloodline Necromancer is already in the deck, he's so good in here!
