Can I extort twice on the same spell?
If you control at least two permanents with extort, yes. Each extort ability will trigger once per spell you cast, and for each trigger you may pay :wbm: once.

if you have two instances of Extort, sure

but each Extort trigger only gives you the option to pay , no more, no less

OK thanks smart fellas
I have a follow-up question about extort.  Does summoning a creature count as casting a spell, thus triggering extort?

There are a great many problems that can be circumvented by players and DMs having a mature discussion about what the game is going to be like before they ever sit down together to play.

 

The answer really does lie in more options, not in confining and segregating certain options.

 

You really shouldn't speak for others.  You can't hear what someone else is saying when you try to put your words in their mouth.

Yes.
I think your usage of outdated terminology makes it less clear:

"Summoning a creature" is no longer the term used.  Rather, it's "casting a creature spell," which makes it very clear that you're casting a spell, and triggering extort. 
Casting a creature spell is casting a spell.

Casting an instant or sorcery spell that puts creatures onto the battlefield is casting a spell.

Activating an ability that puts creatures onto the battlefield is not casting a spell.

Playing a land creature is not casting a spell.

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.

Thank you all for the clarification.

There are a great many problems that can be circumvented by players and DMs having a mature discussion about what the game is going to be like before they ever sit down together to play.

One more follow-up.

Let's say that I have no creatures in play, but I have Thrull Parasite in my hand and 2 swamps in play.  When I tap one swamp to play my Thrull Parasite, can I tap the other swamp to extort for casting that creature spell?

No

The creature isn't on the field until the spell resolves which is after you cast it.

Whatever you are using to extort needs to exist when you cast a spell, not show up later.
