As a copy/steal deck, the "fun" things that can happen vary depending on what I'm up against, but I once counter-locked opponents A, B, and C with a Spelljack, a Mischievous Quanar, a clone of opponent D's Seedborn Muse (cloned shortly before C killed him), and a boatload of mana. It was obviously a fluke, and I fought hard to keep the muse, so (thankfully) rather than holding it against me, it got some "WTF?" laughs.

I have a Sakashima deck as well. I've made changes to the deck and the most current edition has been the most successful. Originally I just intended to copy everyone else's creatures, but discovered that some decks won't cast anything worth copying. So I included some blue creatures of my own that are great. The top three I love copying are Stormtide Leviathan, Inkwell Leviathan, and Frost Titan.

I've had great success with Stormtide Leviathan. Sakashima swinging in for 8 unblockable general damage is awesome, and preventing a lot of ground attackers coming your way is even better!

Another great interaction is when I can copy my own Inkwell Leviathan and then swing in for 7 unblockable with the benefit of shroud.

Copying Frost Titan is just brutal. Not only does it tax an spells trying to take out Sakashima, it also lets you tap down two permanents a turn. This is brutal in duel. Also a nice target for Rite of Replication :)
