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.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work. The Scarab God does become a Zombie with Arcane Adaptation in your control, but Scarab is not doing damage with it's upkeep trigger. It's making your opponents lose life which is not damage.
Undead Alchemist "if a Zombie you control" ability says combat damage to a player. The only time you do combat damage to a player is after combat therefore the only time that Alchemist can trigger this ability is after combat, if you do damage to a player with a Zombie. If Adaptation is in your control and Scarab does combat damage to a player then this will trigger Alchemist.

So I'm in the process of building a The Scarab God EDH deck and because I don't intend to exclusively use zombie tribal, I'll be using Arcane Adaptation to turn all of my creatures into zombies. But my question comes from Undead Alchemist 's ability. So lets say I have Arcane Adaptation down with The Scarab God out and hes a zombie now. Whenever he pings all of my opponents for damage during my upkeep, does that trigger Undead Alchemist 's ability milling all of them and creating more zombies? Because The Scarab God doesn't specifically say hes dealing the damage but it should be implied that he is doing it, unless I'm just understanding this wrong. Thanks in advance.

Something interesting I think you can do with slivers, is turn things into slivers
Could be fun avenue if you want to run a couple other value bombs. Maybe Emrakul, the Promised End as no one will see it coming.
I’d also recommend running Exotic Orchard , it’s really cheap and you’re playing 5 colours so it’ll be online. And maybe a few other “tap for 1 of any colour” instead of maybe the filter lands, I like the filter lands but find that they’re good in 3 colour or 2 colour decks, if you need access to all 5 of say things like Reflecting Pool Mana Confluence City of Brass maybe even Forbidden Orchard would be better because they can give you what ever you need.
Just a thought.love a good sliver list +1 from me

This isn’t something you may go far but since you are already running Narset, Parter of Veils you can also run Windfall , Winds of Change , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate or Wheel of Fortune . If you do, you force your opponent to get rid of their hand and only draw one card while you get a new hand. Pretty mean but it’s powerful.
Overall I like your list of instants you are running. Seems like they all should work really well! +1 Good luck

I may be one of the few that actually remember playing Mercadian Masque in the Type 2 (Standard for you whippersnappers.) format. My favorite card of the set, outside of
. It was only a 6/6 unblockable for eight mana, which is way overpriced by today's current Standards. A little surprised you didn't mention
the card. It was the first of it's kind with the most recent "reprint" being
. Or my favorite/annoying combo consisting of
There were five artifacts, one land and a handful of white rebels that created lore of a creature that would eventually end up being printed for Commander 2017, Ramos, Dragon Engine . The first iterations of the artifact dragon came from Henge of Ramos , Eye of Ramos , Heart of Ramos , Horn of Ramos , Skull of Ramos and Tooth of Ramos .

I love the theme of this deck, I am actually working on my own Reaper King deck with a very similar build, utilizing shapeshifters and other scarecrows.
It may not be as synergistic as the rest of the deck, but with the amount of different lands you have Field of the Dead might be a good inclusion. And if you also include Arcane Adaptation that makes those zombies the tribe of your choosing, which is more triggers from your Commander.

Thanks a lot MadCatMax! Glad to hear you like the deck. Its so much fun to pilot.
Knowledge Exploitation is spicy tech. My gut tells me that in the right meta, it could do some real work. Especially if you are facing off against an Edric deck chock-full of turn spells.
I'll be the first to admit that Sakashima the Impostor is on the slower end of where the deck wants to be.. It can sometimes provide a burst of triggers to burn out the table, but like you said, often you are already winning at that point. I'm less inclined to run Arcane Adaptation since we have been getting more ninjas printed and it doesn't do anything if the dorks you have out are already ninjas like Universal Automaton and its ilk. Especially in my list, because I run several 0-powered creatures that wouldn't trigger Yuriko even if they connect with an opponent. I do think it could be playable in other lists though. It gets better if you aren't running the Ornithopter squad.
