Looks about as fun as having real crabs! =P

How about Skittering Crustacean? There is also Thassa's Emissary.

King Crab may not fit the deck but that flavor text has to be one of my favorites of all time.

I had an absolutely nutty draft experience a few days ago. I was playing the new conspiracy set with some friends who don't spend all that much time drafting (that explains part of my success). We all agreed to walk into the draft more or less blind about the set to help out the lesser players.

I ended up getting a pack one filled with decent commons and not much else. My pick was Sinuous Vermin. My second pickup was Arcane Savant followed by Regicide. Great first three picks. I later learned that the cards my opponents had taken from the packs weren't even bad ones, so it's not like I was handed freebies. Nonetheless, I figured I was going to go for dimir control splashing red after I kept getting great dimir cards. The crux of my deck was Weight Advantage, Repulse, Skittering Crustacean, Sinuous Vermin, decent removal, Illusionary Informant, and Traumatic Visions. Red ended up being rather locked down after some point while dimir remained fairly open. Despite picking up a few Tormenting Voices, I figured with two Merfolk Looters, I'd rather go for more consistency and stuck with dimir.

Things got insane when I opened up a pack three Expropriate.

Exiling that thing with Arcane Savant was brutal. I had an opener of 4 lands, Arcane Savant, Vertigo Spawn, and Repulse. My first draw was another Repulse.

Playing Arcane Savant with Expropriate tied to it three times made me feel like I was piloting Narset, Enlightened Master while firing off Time Stretchs.
