Have a large balanced collection of both cacti and succulents but enjoy growing cristate, monstrose and generally anything a bit weird!

Could be, there is a lot of stuff lumped under that name. Ssp myriacantha looks a lot like that. A more typical and younger M. haynei might look this, coincidentally in flower today.
