If Captain of the Mists is exiled with Mairsil, the Pretender, could he then use the ability to untap himself?

I don't like Elite Arcanist, you don't want to exile too much stuff. I do like Captain of the Mists and he'd do good work in this deck, especially with Docent. Also, try to invest in a Time Spiral.

5 color?!? Now I know your crazy, but 5 color crazy? ;). Well I think you need to have equipments that are made for humans like Bladed Bracers, True-Faith Censer and Silver-Inlaid Dagger and if you like scarescrows Harvest Hand  Flip. Then we need some bad-ass humans. I'll just say one human per color to keep it simple. My favorite human/white is Elite Inquisitor, forget the protection, a 2/2 two drop with first strike and vigilance is tight. A great red would be Kessig Malcontents or Riot Ringleader. Green human could be Hamlet Captain or a super badass human Warden of the First Tree. Blue human Captain of the Mists. black human Village Cannibals. Those are just a few. Out of all honesty I think it might be a little ambitious to try 5 color humans m. 3 color might be a happy medium that won't leave you super frustrated trying to make it work ;)

Captain of the Mists + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is silly since most of the combo pieces in Azami (namely Azami herself) have a pretty high saturation of symbols.

Those three in play the shrine taps for 6 meaning every spell you cast and every human you play that's under 2 mana will net mana. I look at Captain as a bad Mind Over Matter though.

Ohthenoises I tend to agree on Basalt and Rings, it's a good mana combo in casual but I don't like it in competitive builds. I've been toying with Docent of Perfection  Flip for a while now too because it just provides so much for an Azami list, plus it's funny with Dramatic Scepter. I'm glad you brought up the Captain of the Mists interaction, it's something I hadn't actually thought of and it's kind of funny. It's similar to Docent of Perfection  Flip and Intruder Alarm in that regard I guess. Not something to actively try to find but silly when you do.

I've never liked Basalt Monolith, it always felt so slow but that's a personal issue with the card. Rings of Brighthearth may be alright due to the density of 0 cost counters that azami should be running so there's less of an issue tapping for utility.

I've been playing a lot with Docent of Perfection  Flip and I have to say, it's amazing so far but you have to be able to abuse it. If you are going off with HT it's great but what I found with it is Captain of the Mists. He will trigger on each token Docent makes giving you not only additional gas but he also can net you "infinite" mana with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. (Generating more and more for every spell you cast)

This combo is usually plan Y, just above Docent beats but it's happened a few times where this has just snuck in there and done the whole "oh, this works?"

I just figured out infinite mana for Azami. Docent of Perfection + Captain of the Mists + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Yeah I know, but it's at least do-able.
