, Sacrifice Emrakul's Evangel and any number of other non-Eldrazi creatures: Put a 3/2 colorless Eldrazi Horror creature token onto the battlefield for each creature sacrificed this way.

Have you considered any combination of Emrakul's Evangel, Hornet Nest, Stolen by the Fae and Sylvan Offering? All of these cards can create multiple instances of creature tokens at once. Happy Hunting!

Yedora is so cool. Thoughts on these? Living Lands, Blasting Station, Nantuko Vigilante, Emrakul's Evangel, Desecrated Tomb, Lotus Cobra, Beast Whisperer, Slate of Ancestry, Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Vernal Bloom, Nissa, Vital Force

Ah, well the fortunate thing about Extricator of Sin is that you only need to fulfill the delirium requirements once for him to transform. Once he's transformed you're free to start reviving the likes of the Puppet and Alseid with Abiding Grace for more value.
The key to Abiding Grace too is that it keeps giving me those one drops from the grave to sac to Extricator of Sin/Flesh because I'll need those non-Eldrazi creatures in order to generate said Eldrazis. It's actually why your earlier suggestions of stuff like Nest Invader and Awakening Zone for the potential Simic/Sylesnea variant with Emrakul's Evangel dont quite line up because you can't sac Eldrazi Scions or Spawns to either the Evangel or the Extricator. That non-eldrazi clause forces you to try and think outside the box in that regard.
The lifegain from Lunarch Veteran isn't exactly a focus, but he's just there to keep me alive if Im up against aggro/burn strats, especially since Im going to be creating or saccing creatures at least once every turn anyway. I actually more or less included him for his cheap disturb ability in case I needed a body after casting Faithful Mending.
Also I wanted to try and keep the mana curve low for this deck cuz most of the time I wanted to be double spelling into the late game or sinking my mana into the Extricator's ability. My creatures are cheap because I don't want Gavony Dawnguard to miss digging for a cheap creature after each Day/Night trigger.
There actually wouldnt be much room for an expensive bomb like the thicc Eldrazi bois in this deck. I would have to make a whole other deck centered around them for that to work, and that kinda ruins the point of this deck. Besides, in my eyes, the Extricator is the bomb. :3
I hope this sorta explains better some of my decisions.

Very unique idea to build around. Great theme. I’d advise against running a tertiary color though. But I think you could take your core concept and run it in a few different directions.
I’m envisioning a build revolving around crab/eldrazi tokens and Emrakul's Evangel . Populate with Druid's Deliverance / Growing Ranks or blink Eldrazi Skyspawner with Essence Flux ; dig for Eldrazi with Ancient Stirrings ; sustainably generate tokens with From Beyond . I’d recommend adding countermagic too; Counterspell might be tricky to land with its double , but Remand and Mana Leak are both effective.

Have you considered Any combination of Emrakul's Evangel , Nomads' Assembly , Sylvan Offering ? Emrakul's Evangel pretty much makes all your base 1/1 creature tokens into base 3/2 tokens--boosting the usablily of Elemental Bond. Nomads' Assembly doubles the number of creatures you control for two turns. Sylvan Offering gives you one big creature and a bunch of little ones.
Also, with so many tokens getting onto the battlefield you may want to consider finding spots for Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden . The life gain from the three alone will keep you alive as you build your army.
If you're interested in an alternate win card, the enchantment Epic Struggle would definitely be up your alley--especially since it can get around prison decks. Speaking of enchantments, Leyline of the Meek will boost your creature tokens and Cindervines will deal damage to your opponents until you need to destroy someone's artifact or enchantment.
Speaking of damage, Zhur-Taa Druid deals damage to an opponent each time you tap it for mana.
Field of the Dead should be an add in due to all the different named lands you have in your deck. Other lands that can create creature tokens for you without sacrificing the lands include, but are not limited to, Khalni Garden and Dwarven Mine . If you don't mind some sacrifice the Dark Depths / Thespian's Stage combo is the best.

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck Flip.
Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

Hi! Thanks for the upvote.
A few suggestions:
Overwhelming Stampede rather than Overcome ; Sure your deck has many weenies, but by the time you're gonna want a 5 cmc mass trample for the win, you'll probably have something with larger than 2 power out.
Rule of Law is great for multiplayer, but Curse of Exhaustion might fit if you're gearing the deck for 1v1. If you are going for multiplayer, then Kismet works great at slowing opponents down without impacting yourself.
With the amount of PWs in the deck, Ignite the Beacon and Oath of Ajani might be worthwhile.
Phyrexian Rebirth could be a good board wipe, especially if you have crazy token amounts. Especially funny if you can combo it with Fresh Meat . Also funny with Requiem Angel out - a card worth including on its own, especially if you end up juggling your own tokens for other things.
Hardened Scales , Gavony Township , and Bloodspore Thrinax , could play nice with the +1/+1 subtheme.
Ashnod's Altar is great for utilizing creature tokens to get more things out.
Tireless Tracker might help with card draw later and gets some counters on its own.
The deck comp is pretty balanced, so Traverse the Ulvenwald might be effective. Congregation at Dawn and Chord of Calling are other tutor options if you find that the deck is more successful with particular creatures out.
I love swapping weaker tokens with Emrakul's Evangel (another fun fresh meat combo play). Of course, there is always Divine Visitation as well. It's easy to go overboard on doublers, but I figured I'd give a shout out to Primal Vigor and Second Harvest .
Swords to Plowshares for Pacifism ; might be better in some scenarios and always allows you to target your own creature to get some life out of it if you need to or if you go for the lifegain route.
Speaking of the lifegain route, if you want to go for it, here's some things that could work well: Phantom Nishoba , Wall of Reverence , Cradle of Vitality , Fumigate , Congregate , Blighted Steppe , Blossoming Sands , Gingerbread Cabin , Radiant Fountain , Graypelt Refuge , Kabira Crossroads , High Market , and Phyrexian Processor . The land balance will need to be played with if you want to swap the basics for some of those. Also, most Ajani PWs will work well for a more lifegain focused deck.
Now, when I think token generation, I think artifacts for many things. Thopter Assembly , Genesis Chamber , and Summoning Station come to mind. If you end up with more artifact tokens, you can use them with things like Krark-Clan Ironworks and Kuldotha Forgemaster . Also help with things like Dispatch .
Annnnnd one more suggestion if I haven't overstayed my welcome. Funny things can happen in token decks that put out a lot of creatures when you play The Great Aurora . Usually gives you a much stronger board state than opponents - might want to have a safety Reliquary Tower in for that hand size though!
Sorry if I doubled up on anything you had already considered!
