If you use the Sen'jin Fetish with Flame Breath and Rot, sludgy will always go down in 4 rounds of Flame Breath as it is a 100% hit chance and always has enough damage to kill Sludgy. Rot is for the unlikely scenario that your undead round extends into the first round of Darnak.
Very cool to see an RNG proof strat for this boss; nice work! Worth noting that Voodoo Figurine has the same ability set as the Sen'jin Fetish and should also always kill Sludgy with 4 Flame Breaths. Sen'jin Fetish is the better option (more power and health) but I think more people have the Voodoo Figurine.
That said, I've been pleasantly surprised at how reliable, and fast, the Snail/Zeppelin strategy has turned out to be. I don't know if it helps that I'm using an H/P Shimmershell Snail (1790/305/195), which is the best breed for the job, but I averaged just under 18 rounds per kill.
17 16 18 19 2+16 18 2+17 19 2+20 18 17 19 2+16 2+16 18 17 16 18 16 16 == 17.85
There was one time it failed that isn't represented in that data set but it was actually because I killed him with a missile and not Explode. I should have passed and let his Stone Rush self damage push him into Explode range, but instead I missiled (and it might have crit too) and so the carry pet didn't level.
The times I've tried the Fetish strat my kills were in the mid 20's (28 26 24) which is a pretty big jump. That said, its still a cool strat and should replace the cottontail/dragonling strat in compendium IMO.

Interesting combo; you're right about how hard things were ticking. That wild magic + feign trick with is pretty slick; I'm going to have to remember that one. For giggles I've killed Nitun a few times now with Chi-Chi and zandalari (black claw + hunting party); 700 point ticks against a legendary make me lol
