I moved it to a deeper pot and it already started to die.

Looks more like some kind of fern to me, maybe a Phlebodium.

I agree, it looks like a Phleboidum Fern of some type. It reminds me of Bear's Paw Fern (Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star')



Codiaeum (Croton) usually have very colorful leaves; for comparison: Crotons (Codiaeum)

Good to know. So the reason its leaves are drying is because of the direct sunlight it gets.

Direct sunlight could definitely be the issue; Phlebodium like bright, indirect light.
