What about this art says "first strike?" If anything it says "defender."

The bestow costs on the Nymphs are hefty, particularly this and Lampad, but after using them in limited the effect is so good that a heavy cost is perfectly justified. They're some of the best commons out there and well worth the pick in limited.

Look for the centerfold version of this card in the next Playboy!

That's an unwieldy Bestow cost. Most Bestow costs are already pretty hefty, but this one is literally double the actual mana cost of the card!

Also, I'm usually against such blatant sexualisation on Magic cards (or in general), but I have to admit that, in the case of the Nymphs, it does make a lot of sense.

Pushing the limits on the art just a bit are we?! Lol. Love it.

didn't we just finish hammering home the same bestow lesson with dredge? it's not something you have to do with the card, it's just a nice little bonus that may suit your purposes better at a different point in the game, making the card a little more versatile.
as for the art, i'd say it does a nice, flavorful job of pointing out that being able to swing a sword (or spearpoint) quickly isn't the only way to get a first strike against someone. case in point, i kicked all of you in the huevos twice before you finished looking at the art. and that's how you win magic.
also, @ tiggurix, it's not literally double, as you still need only one red mana. i dunno why i can't say '***' on this forum, while words like 'literally' and 'strictly' are thrown about without a care in the world....

You know, the Nymph cycle was interesting, but you know what would've made them VERY fun?

Landwalk. Think about it. Every one of them is Landwalk of their respective type. A simple, clean cycle of 2/2s with Landwalk for 2C or 1CC, with Bestow for 4C. Give the keyword abilities to the Emissary cycle.
