There are several that are magenta with very dark falls.  Not really black, but aiming that direction.  A few include:
Edenite (standards are pretty dark too, but lighter than falls)
Fiery Temper
Spectacular Bid
Study in Black
Wearing Rubies
No white beards among them though.  Seems they usually have orange beards, varying from almost yellow to almost red, and occasionally with dark pigment to make them almost match the falls.  White would sure stand out.

Subject: [iris-photos] Hunting for Magenta and Black Iris

Hi all,
My old school colours were Magenta and Black with white shirts.
As the "old school" is approaching 160 years of continuous teaching, i
am looking for either an existing Iris with Magenta standards or falls
and Black being the other and if possible white beards. If no one can
suggest an existing hybrid, then maybe the possible parents would be
appreciated so i can try to hybridise my own.
Keep up the good work in growing these magnificient plants
