Creature — Human Cleric
Cleric spells you cast cost (White)(Black) less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of colored mana you pay. (For example, if you cast a Cleric spell with mana cost 1(White), it costs 1 to cast.)

This deck is so cool.
Would Silence be a good card to include? It can shut off a player when you go to combo.
I also think Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual would be good includes. They would allow you to win the same turn you get 6 Shadowborn Apostles in play as long as you have untapped and Teysa in play. Because then you tutor Razaketh, use the 6 tokens to tutor Edgewalker, Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Songs of the Damned, Secret Salvage, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Use the B mana to cast your rituals, making 11 black mana. Then you have enough mana to cast Edgewalker, Secret Salvage, and activate Nykthos. Then of course tutor up Gary and Exsanguinate to win.
But being able to win the same turn you get 6 Apostles seems good.

You have to give people time to see your post dude... Most the time it takes about a day for a post to get seen by someone that can actually help you and that depends on when you post.
Both these pages should help:
For what you want there really are not many options about the only way I can think of to accomplish this is to use Paradox Engine and mana rocks. It is extremely rare to reduce colored costs and I don't think red has any colored cost reduction. The only colored cost reduction I even know is Edgewalker.
So Paradox Engine + Gilded Lotus + Goblin Bombardment + Squee, the Immortal is your most efficient combination. Of course the sac outlet and the mana rock can be exchanged for other sac outlets and other mana rocks.
Here is one already built with the Paradox combo:

So why play Monk Idealist when your only enchantments are all of the type to not really draw the ire of enchantment hate? In my mind, I am seeing the the lesser ones like the Blood Fast going under the radar, so it should never hit the grave, but even with the higher end ones your deck should have more than enough redundancy/resilience to not need those enchantments on the field to win. Now I don't know if your meta is maybe mill/discard heavy, so you maybe frequently lose those enchantments in other ways, but if nothing else why have the one means of bringing the enchantments back if such a small few are that important?

I'm currently working on putting this deck together. There have been a few cards I'd recommend that have come out since this was posted, namely Secret Salvage (SS + Edgewalker = all the Apostles!) and Razaketh, the Foulblooded for even more tutoring fun. I always try to run Conjurer's Closet in any deck with Rune-Scarred Demon; it will be the first card he tutors for and hopefully won't be the last. I could also see running Carnival of Souls for quick Apostles and/or free extorts (which more than makes up for the life loss), but it's a bit risky as it would also trigger with opponents' creatures.

Nice deck. Im currently working on an Athreos deck with the same concept.
Tip: Edgewalker is a must have for any Shadowborne Apostle deck, especially for yours, as one of your commanders is also a cleric. Good luck!

Personally, I run a lot of lower cost clerics with ETB effects as well. Combined with Edgewalker, if your opponent chooses to let you get your cleric back, you can play them for free or a greatly reduced price.
