Hermetic Crab inspired a whole phase of people trying to build a better machine gun.

And then there was Charisma.

Appears to be the insperation for Crab Umbra. But that aura costs U to play and 2U to untap. Bad WotC, no cookie for you.
And why does the Umbra not give +0/+2 or +1/+3?

More like Hermetic Study, which was also in Urza block.

The Crab Umbra is already good enough as is, you just need to find the right creatures to put it on. (Hint: Arcanis the Omnipotent is a good place to start)

By the way, to all people reading this and not in the knowing, Horseshoe Crabs are actually not crabs. They are not even crustaceans. The horseshoe crab species are actually from a completely separate class of arthropods, and have remained biologically unchanged for millions of years.

One of my favorite cards. The ability allows some awesome combos, for example with Viridian Longbow. Plus, nice artwork. It does look like a horseshoe crab... this animal really exist by the way...
