Creature — Demon
Whenever another creature leaves the battlefield, you may have target player put the top two cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Unearth (: Return this card from your graveyard to the battlefield. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step or if it would leave the battlefield. Unearth only as a sorcery.)

Extractor Demon Discussion
2 weeks ago
no need for giving up black mana with a Forest for Bloodbond March when Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb exist. That's plenty green spread for one green mana needed, for a recurring effect. That should be a 3 or 4 of though should it go in.
Other fun things you could diversify to. Diversity is fun when you're tutoring the demon you want anyway.
Demon of Dark Schemes
Dictate of Erebos
Herald of Anguish
Lord of the Void
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Westvale Abbey Flip
Overseer of the Damned

Extractor Demon - Has never really shined
Thought Vessel - Sometimes it's good to discard

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled synergizes well with repeated Shadowborn saccing and discourages tutor/fetchland usage from opponents.
Bloodbond March is a nice way to get some recursion, although you should definitely watch out for grouphug effects (although, it shouldn't be much of a problem in EDH, unless it's a Relentless Rats deck or another Shadowborn Apostle deck). Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker works as well, although he isn't a demon.
Thrumming Stone can also be used to pump out more Shadowborn Apostles in one turn.

Karador was the first commander I tried to build. There is a big problem with him, his cost is absurdly high even with the discount. You need a lot of creatures in your graverd to make him affordable and even after that you will probably be out of mana when you finally cast him so you'll have to wait until your next turn to start using its ability.
You will need to make a special effort to fill your graveyard and run a really high count of creatures on the deck, so try to change any of the tools of the deck to utility creatures, that way you will also have a recurring toolbox in your graveyard.
To fill your graveyard you can use dredge (Golgari Thug, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Grave-Troll are the highest dredgers) and you can loot (Key to the City, Smuggler's Copter, Deal Broker and Gate to the Afterlife) There are also Altar of Dementia, Dread Summons and Extractor Demon but it is a bit slow. The good news is all these cards will also synergize with your The Gitrog Monster.
This is so much easier with Meren of Clan Nel Toth as commander.

Another cool thing about this deck is that the general makes the mill effect repeatable.
I'm going to describe an interaction and talk about turn n, where n is whatever turn you pull off the first combo.
Turn n: Sacrifice an Apostle or a Harpy to the Overlord, crack six Apostles to get the Demon of Dark Schemes, kill a few hundred creatures, massive mill.
We got all that already.
Second main phase (still turn n): Cast the General.
During your main phase, exile the General to the command zone and return all Apostles to the field. The Schemer makes them 0/0s, so Extractor sees 60 triggers and mills for another 120.
You'll notice that it takes two turns for this to cycle. However, commander tax increases by two each time the general goes to the zone. You're also guaranteed every land drop, since you have no other cards in your library at this point.
If you're playing a massive game and you need even more mill, you can get more than twice that mill in one more turn, as follows.
Turn n+1: Sac Demon of Dark Schemes to the Overlord, like before. DON'T SAC THE COMMANDER.
Turn n+2: Sac the Overlord to itself, then crack the commander. Return all the Apostles, the Overlord, and the Schemer. They all hit the battlefield at the same time, so you can choose which ETB effect to trigger first. Put the Schemer's ability onto the stack, then the Overlord's. The Overlord sees 60 Apostles (1 devotion each) and 9 more devotion from the demons. This gets you 69 harpies. Then those 69 harpies and the 60 Apostles die from the Schemer's ability, netting you 129 triggers for the Extractor and 258 mill in three turns.

I decided that Extractor Demon was more along the lines of what I wanted. It doesn't count as casting a creature to get back Vengevine but at least it's a solid discard target, and since the mana count is somewhat low Red Sun's Zenith is never gonna be very big.
