This is mine, It works great

Boots of Mobility
Moonflair Spellblade
Warmog's Armor
Leviathan
Shurelya's Revelry
Executioner's Calling

This build nets Varus a lot of versatility while keeping him alive in combat.

start boots + 3 hp pots

first back
dorans
dorans x2(dorans only if you fall behind or had to go B early)
BF sword(this is your main goal)
Zeal( if you have money for it and need the extra speed)
vampiric scepter(if you are getting poked a lot while in a farm lane)

Mid game goal 15-30min
Infinity Edge(biggest dps bump acquire first)
Phoenix dancer(I like this second because of the speed and the crit with IE)
Blood thirster(last because it is lower dps, you can always take a vamp scepter anytime early or after IE if you need the life steal)
Boots- before or after IE depending. Heavy ad team get ninja tabi, high cc or ap get merc treads, neither apply you can get the zerker greaves.(this is rare for me)

defensive item: banshee veil is often the best, but I have got thornmail or its ilk before. This can be rushed before or after IE, but most likely right after unless you build this last.(if your doing well)

late game stuff: 40min +

replace zerker greaves with another phoenix dancer.
black cleaver
trinity force instead of PD(since you have some ap scaling, the slow is good, ect)

The tanky/crit strike that this build affords allow me to use Varus's natural damage while still having a lot of survivability. You can replace the Leviathan with a Cloak and dagger if necessary.

except your the teams carry. Your not going to being doing carry like damage with that build. For the most part varus should be built like a standard ad carry unless you get fed and want to build tri-force since you have some ap abilities.

no good item build contains ionic spark because it is a bad item

black cleaver is situational it shouldn't be in a build plan. most times youll end up getting last whipser instead.

When built in the way I described, Varus CAN, hit ridiculous numbers with his criticals. On paper it may not sound right. But, much like Tim Tebow, it just wins.
