Hey, well done for first deck on a budget, nice Demonic Tutor. You've definitely done research into the better budget cards for Varina and adding win condition combos. Liquimetal Torque + Binding Mummy is interesting tech.
I see Wonder which is great with Varina, but it's going to be difficult to consistently activate Wonder needing an Island land with only 4 Islands + Wilds/Expanse for a total of only 6 Island sources. There's several dual lands here that could be replaced by budget Island dual lands to help Wonder and make Marsh Flats better.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Command Tower --> Rupture Spire
- Exotic Orchard --> Crumbling Vestige
- Esper Panorama --> Orzhov Guildgate
- Sunken Hollow --> Dimir Guildgate
- Prairie Stream --> Azorius Guildgate
- Ice Tunnel --> Dismal Backwater
- Irrigated Farmland --> Tranquil Cove
- Glacial Floodplain --> Meandering River
- Caves of Koilos --> Forsaken Sanctuary
- Tainted Isle --> Dimir Aqueduct
- Tainted Field --> Orzhov Basilica
- Choked Estuary --> Scoured Barrens
Graveborn Muse is amazing repeatable draw with Zombies and the life lose doesn't matter much because of Varina. Muse can repeatedly refill your hand at the beginning of your turn giving you lots of choices for looting with Varina. Vile Entomber can tutor for Wonder or Gravecrawler and put it right into your graveyard. Patriarch's Bidding is another spell for mass reanimation of your Zombies.
Shepherd of Rot can wreck opponents life totals, who don't have life gain and it doesn't hurt you as much because you have a lot of life gain with Varina. If you're trying to win with Rooftop Storm then Lazotep Plating is excellent instant protection. Hordewing Skaab is a Zombie upgrade for Eternal Skylord to give all Zombies you control flying not just tokens.
- Graveborn Muse --> Corpse Augur
- Vile Entomber --> Tymaret Calls the Dead
- Patriarch's Bidding --> Necromancer's Covenant
- Shepherd of Rot --> Cemetery Recruitment
- Lazotep Plating --> In Oketra's Name
- Hordewing Skaab --> Eternal Skylord
Good luck with your deck.

Liliana, Untouched By Death seems to be better planeswalker option than Liliana, the Last Hope. Also it let's you combo with new Shambling Ghast because it leaves Treasure token behind to recast it from grave. With Diregraf Captain and alike it's an auto win + if you have Rooftop Storm on field you can create infinite Treasure tokens.

I've noticed a bug/library inaccuracy where the Kaldhiem snow duals (like Ice Tunnel ) are marked as illegal in Pauper. Any way this could be updated to avoid confusion?
And before anyone asks why I didn't send a bug report, Tapped Out's contact page recommends posting bugs in the forum :)

Hey, good budget version of Vania. I'm impressed by your card sense on a budget.
Wonder is nice when you can easily discard it with your Commander. Giving all creatures you control flying is powerful. When Wonder is in your graveyard you need an Island on the battlefield to activate it this makes Island/Swamp and Island/Plains dual lands helpful and upgrades for the manabase.
- Sunken Hollow
- Prairie Stream
- Ice Tunnel
- Irrigated Farmland
- Glacial Floodplain
- Fetid Pools
- Watery Grave
- Hallowed Fountain
Pools, Grave and Fountain may be out of budget range, but I mention them for possible future land upgrades.
Some other budget lands upgrades to consider:
On a budget Talisman of Dominance is not worth $8. Could replace it with Azorius Signet or Commander's Sphere and use $8 to improve the manabase. It's actually more important that the mana rocks can make the two other colors because consistently on the battlefield you'll have basic Swamps.
Good luck with your deck.

Do you think the new Snow Dual Lands in Kaldheim will see play? If so, in what decks?
Let me know what you think.
