Quest for Ula's Temple
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, you may reveal it and put a quest counter on Quest for Ula's Temple.
At the beginning of each end step, if there are three or more quest counters on Quest for Ula's Temple, you may put a Kraken, Leviathan, Octopus, or Serpent creature card from your hand onto the battlefield.

Does water help when someone is very...dramatic? If, TheDevicer, please take some water.
My biggest mess up? I used Quest for Ula's Temple in my snake deck for a while as I mixed up the type translations for serpent and snake. Felt pretty stupid afterwards.

My first impulse is to work on your distribution, or find ways to manipulate your top deck. I love me some Quest for Ula's Temple, however it can really suck when you don’t curve properly and the 15% of your deck that is 8 or 9 mana gets stuck in your hand. With Clockspinning you only have 23 cards that can put counters on the Quest and you have to have them come up in the right order.

Ok, so I'm seeing a deck that wants arcane adaptation and descendants path to drop big spells. Fair enough.
I highly reccomend more 1 and 2 drop creatures. Making sure that your t3 Descendants' Path hits something turn 4 is valuable. But how to assess those creatures is important. You want to be sure you have big creatures on top of your deck, and you want to avoid needing arcane adaptation where possible.
To do this, is best to assess a small set of cards you'd be using together rather than a lot of individual cards. Getting a set of cards that work well together is better than a bunch of disparate parts- getting a set which acts as a backup plan to arcane adaptation is even better.
One method to find these sets of cards is to look at what creature type you want to name with Arcane Adaptation and go all in on it.
Pretty much every tribe has big game-changing spells and 1 drops that work well. I'd focus on tribes that like stalling/controlling the game (Spellstutter Sprite lists), Protecting their own creatures (spirits/illusions), or already cheat their big stuff in (Preeminent Captain and Incandescent Soulstoke). There are plenty of tribal lists on this site to raid for ideas.
Changeling tribal is a neiche option which I'll mention here- Mothdust Changeling, Shields of Velis Vel etc- there are Haakon, Stromgald Scourge/Basal Sliver/Skeletal Changeling combo lists you can raid for ideas.
The second way is to look for things that can get value out of your big spells.
Looking at CMC matters is another- Nourishing Shoal, Blast of Genius, Kindle the Carnage, Nahiri's Wrath and so on all offer ways for your big spells to impact the game when you aren't casting them for free.
The final option is other Arcane Adaptation combos, to improve card quality by building in redundancy. Turntimber Ranger and any creature goes infinite if you name ally, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Ashes of the Fallen, Myr Turbine and tons of creatures, Quest for Ula's Temple and Inkwell Leviathan is a thing.
The big thing is to pick one plan, and stick to it. Its a lot more difficult to disrupt three spells doing the same thing than three different things. Fix your mana curve with a smooth 'I want this or this t1, this or this t2, and this or this t3' plan, and it'll run smooth.
Good luck, and happy brewing!
