Mairsil's ability goes on the stack as soon as he comes into play, so there's no way to target him with Murder without the trigger being set to occur. After Mairsil dies, since the ability doesn't actually rely on him being in play (it's not putting an aura on him or anything) then Mairsil's caster may still exile a card with a cage counter.
The next time Mairsil is played, of course (assuming he's put back into the command zone) he will still being able to take the activated abilities of the exiled card, since he's just looking for any exiled card with a cage counter on it. The fact that this Mairsil didn't exile it is irrelevant.

You sure six instants/sorceries is enough to ever flip Docent of Perfection reliably?
You could swap some of the enchantments and artifacts out for cards that do similar things in spell form. Pacifism could be Swords to Plowshares and Skywise Teachings could become Midnight Haunting . Your artifacts don't seem to contribute much - the Banner is too slow and the Spike seems counterintuitive if you're going for a token swarm - so they could become more inxpensive card draw or removal. Azorius Charm , Compulsive Research and Disenchant are all good options. And see if you can swamp Anticipate out for Impulse - it's a strict upgrade!

You know that Zur is black as well, right? You don't have any way to actually play him!

A nice trick you can pull with monocoloured decks is swapping out all of your Mountains for Snow-Covered Mountain s and then making room for Scrying Sheets . It can also pick up the Coldsteel Heart you're already running, meaning there's a little card advantage it can eke out for you every now and then. Mouth of Ronom and Skred might also be worthy inclusions if you go that route.
Some other intriguing ways for you to score a lot of tokens include Thopter Assembly , Lightning Coils and Retrofitter Foundry - even if you keep ditching the tokens immediately, those comes-into-play triggers will add up!

Yes, the use of "targets" in the textbox does indeed mean all of the targets chosen, whether you're normally meant to choose them or not.

You would keep the copy of the token. The token itself isn't saying it plans to be exiled at the end of the turn, Seance is telling you to exile it. Thus, it wouldn't have anything to say about a copy of that token that pops up. Since the "exile at end of turn" trigger is not a copyable characteristic, the second token is permanent.
To keep in mind what is or isn't copied, you can always refer to the list of copyable values.

You would get two copies of Nicol Bolas.
201.4b If an ability of an object refers to that object by name, and an object with a different name gains that ability, each instance of the first name in the gained ability that refers to the first object by name should be treated as the second name.

You have plenty of deadly utility creatures, which is great, but a wonderful trick is to bring back creatures who are "bigger" than their stats might suggest. A great example is Clockwork Dragon - so long as it's outside of play, including in the graveyard, it has zero power. But the second Alesha animates him, you suddenly have a 6/6 flyer. Other good options include Arcbound Overseer , Sewer Nemesis , Nighthowler and Herald of Leshrac .

You know an excellent place to dump all the mana you'll be getting from Marwyn? Joraga Warcaller . He's also a killer combo with Immaculate Magistrate, if you can engineer that. Running Wirewood Herald is a good way to piece some tricks together, but I'd also consider Elvish Harbinger : it's a little slow, but can't say no to a cheap tutoring effect in green.

I might take out a couple of enchantments for a couple more creatures if I were you - it can be a real drag drawing nothing but spells to point at creatures, but have nothing to do with them because your opponent keeps picking off your critters. Akroan Skyguard and Phalanx Leader are both worth considering.
For your spells, I think the single best heroic enabler in blue/white might be View from Above - since all of your creatures are white, it will return to your hand every time you cast it, letting you enable Heroic as many times as you can afford! Hidden Strings is also strongly worth considering - you can tap two blockers before attacking, then untap up to two of your creatures to activate Heroic on them both. Getting a free pair of Heroic triggers so long as you can land a hit on your opponent each turn should wrap up the game quickly!

Looking good! In these "Oops! All creatures" builds, cards like Vizier of the Menagerie and Zoologist are good for securing card advantage, since more often than not, the top card of your library will be a creature. Courser of Kruphix helps you play off the top of your deck even more often! It might also be worth considering Heartwood Storyteller and Nullstone Gargoyle , since you can be sure their abilities will never backfire on you - and the latter can even be fetched by Conduit of Ruin.
