Changes, 03Aug2020:

-4 Forest, +2 Snow-Covered Forest, +1 Snow-Covered Mountain, +1 Snow-Covered Swamp. Adding the snow lands gives a slightly better chance at turning on Field of the Dead sooner with no downside. Slightly changed basic land balance.

-1 Burgeoning, +1 Worldly Tutor. Just running the playtesting made two things clear: Burgeoning isn't going to pay off all that much, and the deck needs either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator to make it into play to get the engine churning. Adding the tutor will ensure that will happen more reliably. The Gitrog Monster is also pretty important to find too, so I'm likely going to find spots for the Demonic Tutor anyway as well as a Chord of Calling.

TypicalTimmy on Why are some commander staples ...

To re-rail this thread, staples are generally considered for three reasons: CMC, impact and speed.

Cards such as Demonic Tutor are solid because they are extremely low cost with basically no downside. Cards such as Diabolic Tutor are not sought after because, while they function the same, they cost a lot more to cast in-game and thus are not able to be played as quickly. Vampiric Tutor costs the most because the CMC is half-that of Demonic Tutor, is an instant and does the same effect. In a game with 40 life, paying 2 is nothing. That's also why shocklands and fetch lands are so popular; The cost of the life you spend is nothing compared to the value you get. Being 1/2 the CMC though is not enough. As Vampiric Tutor is also an instant, it can find you cards at any point in the game, not just during your main phases when the stack is empty.

There are outliers, such as Cyclonic Rift and Damnation, but paying a lot of mana for a reset button is worth it as it brings everyone back down to relatively the same level, more or less.

Cards that push you to win the game (tutors, combo pieces, wincons) are the best because winning the game against three opponents is far more powerful than making a single opponent lose the game.

Changes, 31Jul2020:

-1 Demonic Tutor, +1 Grim Tutor. I got the Grim from a pack and would rather not spend the $$ for the Demonic upgrade at the moment.

-1 Yavimaya Hollow, +1 Field of the Dead. The hollow is a fun utility land, but Field is FAR more functional in this deck. This is a no brainer.

-1 Jund Panorama, +1 Prismatic Vista. Vista seems like a strictly better card and I happened to have one, so no capital investment.

-1 Vivien Reid, +1 Wrenn and Six. See note about above about Yav Hollow/FotD. Vivien is a good card, but W+6 belongs in this deck.

-1 Khalni Heart Expedition, +1 Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. I'm looking to include every extra land drop effect (that doesn't also benefit my opponents) so Dryad's gotta go in. KHE is a pretty meh card really so out it came.

Extortion Tutor

Instant

Search your library for any one card and reveal it to all players. Any player may sacrifice half their life, rounded up. If they do, you discard that card. Otherwise, put it in your hand.

(it's generally worse than Demonic Tutor but it's also at instant speed like Vampiric Tutor and you get the card in hand like Demonic Consultation ... but you could lose it!)

challenge: green, red, blue drawback card for a Commander staple

This is going to sound crazy, but Humility and Lethal Vapors

Your commander should be entering with nearly all the keywords via a Cavern of Souls, so destroying things when they come in will really only hamper your opponent.

Humility is nasty against opponents, and the counters on your creatures make them retain their strengths. Moat is a strong 2nd to this strat.

some nice tutors for Hermit Druid like Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could speed that graveyard game up, also drop to one of each basic unless mill is in your meta.

Solidarity of Heroes over Doubling Season just for the fact that as soon as you drop the season, everyone will focus you to death, and season doesn't really stop that on its own. Solidarity is a battle trick that coupled with doublestrike (which you should basically always have) is an insta win.

This is a great list, and I will be amending my own Kathril with some of your cards, so thank you very much!
