As Arcane Adaptation enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.
Creatures you control are the chosen type in addition to their other types. The same is true for creature spells you control and creature cards you own that aren't on the battlefield.

Arcane Adaptation is one of the key cards in this deck and allow crazy things to happen in this deck. It allows Seahunter to tutor any creature and put them onto the battlefield allowing any combo to go off. It allows all of my tokens to become merfolk allowing Lullmage Mentor to in a sense be able to answer anything after Spontaneous Generation creates at least 30 tokens from the immense card draw this deck does. The deck isn't super competitive where it wins on turns under 4, but it usually wins around 7-10 if gone unanswered.

Use double square brackets around a card's name to make a pop-up link. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Arcane Adaptation, Havengul Lich, Rooftop Storm
Yes, this works. The steps for casting a spell happen in a specific order, and paying costs is the very last step. After you announce the creature spell and move the card you targeted with Havengul Lich to the stack, Arcane Adaptation will start affecting it. Since it's now a Zombie spell, you're allowed to apply the alternative cost from Rooftop Storm when you get to the cost-paying step.

Is Chainer really worth running in here? I mean, his last ability can be a huge drawback in a Changeling heavy deck meaning every Changeling you have on the field is a Nightmare and it would only take a single killspell targeted on Chainer to exile your boardstate of Changelings.
I couldn't believe I didn't see Arcane Adaptation and Conspiracy, but after looking through the comments I'm glad that you'll be putting them in because they are extremely valuable in tribal decks. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth helps out a lot with mana fixing, especially in a five color deck like this and like the above suggestion it can also synergize well with Cabal Coffers to ramp out a ton of mana.
One really really minor thing. Master of the Pearl Trident is arguably better than Lord of Atlantis because it only affects creatures you control rather than all other merfolk. In the rare event that you're matched up against a merfolk tribal commander deck or even Tuvasa Enchantment Voltron, it might be best to run Pearl Trident over Atlantis to avoid buffing an opponent's creatures. It would save you some money too, or you could just run them both for redundancy to the ability.

You have a couple unique opportunities here.
For the Land condition, use Nylea's Presence on your Darksteel Citadel. It's cheap and its a cantrip as well. That also enables Landwalk abilities if you play it on your opponent, but that's a thought for a different day. If you were to have at least 1 of each basic land in your deck outside of what you need, than you could also play Wild-Field Scarecrow or something simple like Cultivate.
If you really wanted to be a dickhole, use Arcane Adaptation and play token generating spells like Raise the Alarm or Dragon Fodder which basically means pay , make two 2/2 "Scarecrow" tokens (remember the lord effect from the King) and blow up 2 permanents.

CrimsonKing While Xenograft is along the lines of what the deck wants, I did not include that or Conspiracy as I think 5 is too much to pay for that type of effect, which is why I've limited it to Arcane Adaptation and now Standardize. The deck has gone through quite a few changes since this list was made, but it's still a Flying Men-esque Doomsday/Turns deck. Will post changes soon, once I have a couple other little kinks worked out. Cheers!

Frenetic Sliver does only work once with it, because it says 'If this creature is on the battlefield, [...]' so that no matter what happens, multiple stacked triggers of this don't do anything outside of Crackdown Construct or Ceaseless Searblades + Arcane Adaptation.
