You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

If you don't mind, I'd also like to comment on some other things. I'm not sure whether you're on a budget, so I've recommended both cheap and more expensive cards. So, first your creature choices.
I'm not sure whether I'd keep Corrosive Mentor either. Sure, wither works well against creatures that have indestructible, but there are easier ways to deal with those; especially when you're playing white and black. Merciless Eviction, Unmake, Descend upon the Sinful and some of the cards I mentioned earlier are great in this regard.
Having said all of this, here are some suggestions I have for other creatures:
Weathered Wayfarer; allows your search for land if an opponent controls more; ANY land.
Dragonmaster Outcast; cheap creature that spawns dragons once you have enough lands.
Dragon Hatchling; cheap, cute and reasonably deadly.
Archangel of Thune; just a damn fun card that boosts everything when you gain life.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope; winged death that makes everything you own indestructible, need we say more? :)
Angel of Finality; reasonably cheap Angel that brings graveyard hate.
Moonveil Dragon; can boost all of your creatures very cheaply.
Balefire Dragon; one of the best dragons in MTG; get one :)
I'd also recommend some demons but as you said in your description, you don't want any. So I'll refrain from doing that.
I'm not sure why you've chosen some of the enchantments in this deck. Grave Pact for instance. You're not (really) using a token deck that sacrifices its own creatures left and right, so other players (especially those who ARE playing token decks (check out Meren's Returning Army)) will laugh this off. For a similar reason I question Sigil of the Empty Throne. Sure there are some enchantments in this deck that allow you to generate Angels, but enchantments aren't really the main theme of your deck.
Instead, I'd build some more on your recursion theme and add cards like Sigil of the New Dawn or Debtors' Knell. Also, it wouldn't hurt to add some card draw to your deck. This is the reason why I would add some demons because they have inherrent card-draw abilities. But if you don't want these, you could keep cards like Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections or Greed in mind.
In terms of artifacts, I'd consider some more mana artifacts. Otherwise you're too dependent on Kaalia; especially in the early stages of a game. Also, if you can add Strionic Resonator which can makes Kaalia use her ability twice in one attack. I think Quicksilver Amulet would do very well too, as this is basically a second Kaalia.

Going up in the number of Unmake's may be a good thing, as Beckon Apparition can be kind of underwhelming at times. Three considerations are this though: 1) Beckon Apparition is capable of some cheeky combat plays where I can effectively "flash in" a 1/1 blocker and make Nightsky Mimic a 4/4 blocker, 2) Beckon Apparition is great against sacrifice effects where I can make another creature to sacrifice to something like Diabolic Edict, and 3) Beckon Apparition is just lower on the curve, which is just a huge advantage to this deck in general. Look how low the curve lies in this deck even compared to your extort list. That makes it really aggressive in game 1. All things considered, maybe I could shift around the number of Castigate and put some of those in the side. Thanks for the input, and remember to +1 if you like it!

Amazing deck, this is my pauper extort deck

Great deck! I might build something like it. You might want to consider making this deck into an esper deck (Blue/White/Black) and add more reloval, like one of my favorites, Unmake. +1

I honestly feel like you can't run this deck without Leyline of the Void. The second you drop a kill spell, the opponent has removed a piece of your main strategy of the game, and done it by your own hand. Though personally, I'd also run this in Orzhov colours for access to Path to Exile not to mention flexing on Unmake.

Seems like a pretty solid deck. I would recommend some more removal though. Also, just to let you know, you can't have Unmake in this deck. Its colors are black and white, while your commander's is only green white. Since Unmake has black in it, it can't be used. Otherwise, nice!

Death Grasp is not modern legal, so I would recommend changing that if you want to play it at an FNM or such.
The cards that you are running are good, except that you areceived very 2, 3, and 4 drop heavy. I would spread it out so you have a couple higher cost cards also. Pontiff of Blight could be good. Additionally, you have no 1 drops, but a card like Authority of the Consuls would be handy to slow your opponent and gain you some more life.
You don't have a clear endgame, aside from slowly draining your opponent, so something like Archangel of Thune, (though a bit pricey) could help you close out a game quickly by buffing all of your creatures.
