Alright, this is going to be a doozy.

First off, you have multiple ways of playing Varina. From what I've experienced playtesting her (your deck specifically), she seems really good as a draw engine/fill the graveyard with stuff. But your deck doesn't seem geared towards this specific ability. I would recommend a few cards that encourage more synergy with Varina's ability. The madness cards you use currently are great examples of what I'm suggesting. Other such cards are Big Game Hunter and Archfiend of Ifnir .

I also find you're not running enough graveyard shenanigans. I'd consider cards like Dimir Doppelganger , Body Double , Lazav, the Multifarious , and Dralnu, Lich Lord as ways to further increase graveyard abuse (if you start casting more from the graveyard, River Kelpie is a possibility too).

You're playing a lot of cards that damage your opponents when a zombie dies, but very few sac outlets. It makes your deck rely a little on your opponents killing your zombies for you. In order to circumvent this, I would recommend playing "free" sac outlets such as Carrion Feeder , Voracious Null , Nantuko Husk , Viscera Seer and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born .

On the subject of free sac outlets, Phyrexian Altar and Phyrexian Tower should be considered if ever your budget opens up. Ghoulcaller Gisa has potential as well.

Draw synergies: Alhammarret's Archive , Psychosis Crawler and Sanguine Bond (since Varina gains you life this could be very funny).

Creatures dying synergies (should you choose to focus on that more): Dark Prophecy , Deathgreeter , Grim Haruspex , Grave Pact

Synergy with Varina's activated ability: Eternal Scourge , Misthollow Griffin , Heartstone or the more $$$ Training Grounds .

Flavor: Call to the Grave and Throne of the God-Pharaoh .

I have been having such excellent results from Carrion Feeder as a free sacrifice outlet/zombie for Gravecrawler loops that I am considering adding Nantuko Husk as a backup plan (or Phyrexian Ghoul , if insects offend you).

What does everybody think?

Todays Hot Takes

  • That Priest of Forgotten Gods is going to be so f'n great, like whoa. It makes me think that even though the sac outlets for standard are still missing a free one like Nantuko Husk or Viscera Seer the strategy is still shaping up big time. Totally rad it does it all: adding mana and drawing a card and forcing creature sacrificing and doing damage to opponents all in one effect. Super duper hyped to play it in my Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest edh deck.

Priest of Awesome

  • Orzhov Depositor is another quiet standout, its great sac fodder. I'm fairly certain its a playable standard card, and its going straight in my Mazirek deck too. Here is the deck by the way: Mazirek Sac-Storm: The Contraption of Life & Death I'm currently the #2 Mazirek deck on tappedout, so upvotes are very appreciated. Number 1 hasn't updated his list in like 3 years, so I will probably pass him eventually.

Orzhov Depositor

  • I'm also super hyped for Incubation Druid, it reminds me of a more expensive Joraga Treespeaker. I always love ramp. And elves. And +1/+1 counters. And ramp.

Incubation Druid

  • I just built Child of Alara edh with Maze's End combo last month expecting new toys for it. So its fun getting a couple decent "gates matters" cards for that. That gate Reflecting Pool land Harmony Square combined with Gateway Plaza could be the core of a mana base for standard. Maybe thats how the gate deck's mana base looks? If there is ever a standard gate deck anyways.

Harmony Plaza

  • Cinder Lash is totally a cool card to upgrade edh decks with. It reminds me of Aura of Silence but with damage instead of mana taxing. Having cards like this in play can be a nice political tool.

Cinder Lash

  • Skewer the Critics will be great in the mono red list I play on Arena. I expect it makes burn a very serious deck again in standard.

Skewer the Critics

Seems like a good addition. Maybe also put Nantuko Husk at four and add some Mortician Beetle?

Maybe if instead of red/green it could be black/green. Maybe taking advantage of Nantuko Husk or Ashnod's Altar
