I really like this design, although I am not sure how those folks have not noticed those giant pincers.

I know someone over at Salvation that will be happy to see this.
Now maybe he'll finally shut up about it.

“Does this take up my land play for the turn?” “Can I return it to thebattlefield with something that recurs a land?”

Two questions I foresee seeing/hearing people ask at least once.

At least it avoids some of the confusion of the Theros Gods, where players might not realize the "not a creature" ability is only in effect while it's on the battlefield.

With Arixmethes, even if they misunderstand that rule, they'd have to go the extra step of ignoring the whole "as long as this has a slumber counter on it" condition. I'm sure it will happen, but hopefully not much.

I'm not sure how your world's people haven't figured out Italy is a giant boot.

I checked. Astoundingly, he was actually happy about it. Pure joy; no complaining about how any particular aspect didn't line up with his expectations.

I was deeply shocked.

It's only a land as it enters the battlefield.

Also they appear to be large crustaceans on Theros so I'd guess no.
