Janky is one thing, but this is just going out of its way to be convoluted! Just go with Ragged Veins, Spiteful Shadows or Stuffy Doll instead. Blasphemous Act can also nearly kill an opponent and is much easier to play, depending on how cluttered the board gets.

You might like Staff of Domination as a sort of back-up Umbral Mantle. It also lets you draw into what you need if you have nothing else to do with your infinite mana, or just gain an arbitrarily large amount of life when desired.

As a quick aside, the 'loop' would not be endless, since Forerunner of the Empire distinctly states that "you may have Forerunner of the Empire deal 1 damage to each creature." You could stop having it set off Polyraptor's enrage trigger at any time you want. A true infinite loop would be Polyraptor and AEther Flash.

Unfortunately no. The key difference is between an ability that lasts "until end of turn" like that of Odric, Lunarch Marshal, and one that happens "at end of turn" (like Final Fortune.) The reminder text on Sundial of the Infinite specifically says that '"this turn and "until end of turn" effects end,' as they're simply waiting until the turn ends, and using the Sundial speeds that up. The Sundial is effective with cards that mention the "end step" specifically, such as Ball Lightning, since using it skips the end step.

You were correct in your presumption. Basically, first strike happens before regular damage, and double strike means a creature deals both first strike damage and regular damage. They're basically both tickboxes that say "yes, this creature does first strike damage." So while a creature can have both of these abilities (in your example, an opponent's Escaped Shapeshifter would still get first strike from your Iroas's Champion) it won't function any differently in combat than if it just had double strike.
