How did this word, so close orthographically to excise, and with the exact same meaning, come into being? Or did it come first and excise is the copycat?

Nope, they're from two different Latin verbs. Excise is from excaedere and exscind is from exscindere. Both with roughly the same meaning.

You're welcome.
