Gidgetimer on Can Lazav trigger the reanimated …

The first oracle ruling on Lazav, Dimir Mastermind says:

"Lazav, Dimir Mastermind becomes a copy of the creature card in the graveyard. If that card is no longer in the graveyard when Lazav’s ability resolves, use the characteristics of that card as it last existed in the graveyard. Notably, copy effects that applied to the creature card when it was on the battlefield won’t be copied by Lazav. For example, if a Clone is put into an opponent’s graveyard from the battlefield and you use Lazav’s ability, it will become 0/0. It won’t become a copy of whatever Clone was copying.

So yes, you can both return Sun Titan with Extract from Darkness (which notably does NOT target. Important if someone controls a Ground Seal) and make Lazav, Dimir Mastermind a copy of it. Notable for this interaction though, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind will not trigger the ETB ability since he is already on the battlefield. He does get the attack trigger and a vigilant 6/6 is good on its own.

I have Lazav, Dimir Mastermind in play.

I cast Extract from Darkness and it resolves.

One of my opponents mills a Sun Titan, I target Sun Titan with Extract from Darkness reanimation effect.

Can I have Lazav also become Sun Titan even though by the time Extract from Darkness "fully" resolves it's no longer in the graveyard?

I think you should cut Doorkeeper. He's your only defender creature so 3 mana and tap to mill one isn't a good payoff. Phenax, God of Deception will break the wallet a little bit but is a solid and a staple for mill. Extract from Darkness, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Psychic Corrosion, Mindcrank, and Riddlekeeper are some good options. Hope this helps as a fellow mill player!

Mindshrieker could potentially be a big flyer. Patient Rebuilding? Hedonist's Trove? Chancellor of the Spires? Mind Sculpt? Leyline of the Void so everything milled is exiled instead. Ashen Powder and Extract from Darkness are always fun in my mill deck.

Then there's always the Persistent Petitioners route...
