No. Extort is a triggered ability, not an activated ability.

that's what I thought. What about Morbid though? I thought that worked...

Morbid isn't actually an ability, that's why it's italicized.
So if the "Morbid" ability is an activated ability (written like "[cost]:[effect]"), then Illusionist's Bracers would work.  If it's not, they won't.

EDIT:
Did a quick Oracle search and the only activated morbid ability I found was Skirsdag High Priest.

Yes, it is an activated ability.

Yeah, Skirsdag High Priest's ability can be doubled because it's an activated ability.
