Back again, I’ve been test playing this deck again, because I love black burn, I come in peace with some friendly suggestions, Thrull Parasite would be interesting to extort for all the burn spells, I would mainboard Collective Brutality it can burn, and I can be of other value, Smallpox can burn and slow down the game, in between Collective Brutality and Smallpox they can service as a discard outlet for Alms of the Veins madness ability, I feel like 4 Piranha Marsh coming into play tap slows down the deck too much, I feel like it’s just not worth it for 1 life, I think Marsh Flats would be a good investment it’s the cheapest swamp fetching land that can fetch Leechridden Swamp, I wish more people would make Black burn builts, I am a black burn nut,

The deck looks good but seems somewhat slow. Some suggestions IMO would be:
Out 4 Cryptbreaker for 4 Undead Augur which gives a lot of card advantage with no life loss thanks to Zulaport Cutthroat and Wayward Servant. The problem with Cryptbreaker is that it needs 3 zombies to draw a card. The Augur also pairs great with Village Rites and Bone Shards for more card advantage. If any board wipe happens, you can sacrifice your zombies to Carrion Feeder to trigger the Augur to easily rebuild.
Out 6 Plains for Fetch Lands that can fetch a swamp (Marsh Flats is at it's cheapest)
Out 1 swamp and 2 Castle Locthwain for 3 Geralf's Messenger. With a smaller average CMC, you can cut a few more lands for more creatures. Keeping just 1 Castle is also good enough since Augur in the main deck gives more cards than the Castle's ability.
Unearth over Blasting Station if you already swapped out some land for Geralf's Messenger. These two, at the very least, makes the opponent lose 8 life; more with Cutthroat and Knight on the field. Reanimating other creatures is also another viable strategy to get out of a tight situation.
Ghoulish Procession over Jadar since it's a nonlegendary permanent that can potentially make more zombies to fuel an aristocrats strategy and trigger ETB and death triggers.

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.

I should mention, I've been giving you advice under the assumption you're working with a limited budget. I bring this up because fetch lands like Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta and Prismatic Vista are all extremely useful in vampires even if you're monocolor because they let you reuse Bloodghast up to twice per turn, they can force a shuffle to hopefully get Nocturnus active, and they thin your deck making it slightly more likely you'll draw what you need.
