Is it bad that I use the crab's mill ability on myself? Narcomoeba doesn't seem to mind.

Always love this little guy; I do find him mildly difficult to utilize appropriately however. I know it's just "play, put down lands", but the nature of mill and his "slow and steady wins the race" playstyle can be troublesome since there's no board position to speak of.

Use him to power out Jace's Phantasm, Consuming Aberration assistance, Avatar of Woe, Visions of beyond and similar.

Lots to love. He's a great first-turner for weenie blocking and milling. You can chump block him or sac him later-game if he's not doing you service. Use him for your own card advantage if you're using graveyard tech. Heck, put some equipment on him and he can even attack. A versatile creature that shouldn't be overlooked, especially in any landfall deck that runs blue.

Really good one drop, with an effect like that he'll see much play 4.5/5

I think this might be my favorite creature. Very nice to copy with a Phantasmal Image.

Something that hasn't seemed to be noted is the possibility of using this in some sort of janky self-mill land/graveyard deck; Crucible of Worlds makes this guy basically a free three cards to your graveyard each turn.

While player burn and mill are slightly different, 3 milled is about the same percent to victory as ~1.13 damage. (Not counting that your opponent draws each turn.) Red got stuck with Cosi's Ravager for 3Red, blue gets a one-drop. That's the power of Hedron Crab. It puts a clock on any opponent who doesn't deal with it, it blocks chumps and if it can survive just a few turns, it easily becomes the most efficient mill spell ever printed.

I have had opponents drop a Wrath of God when I had two out; this crab demands an answer.
