The only snails I like are nerites, glass cleaner there is!
The whole notion of MTS stirring up the substrate being a positive thing is overrated. When I had MTS in my tank, unintentionally, I could never plant any small foreground plants into the tank because they would disrupt the substrate and uproot the small plants. I had small erio sulawesi, trithuria sp. E. Belem, so on. Annoying snails.
If you don't plan on planting small plants like common foregrounds (HC, hairgrass, glosso, etc) then go for it if they intrigue you. If not, I would recommend staying snail free. If you need a clean-up crew that badly, you're better off keeping shrimp.
