I don't care what they say nautilus because you are beautiful and a nautilus and a 4/4 for 3 in blue.

This seems like a really potent Limited card to me. Obviously you need to be prepared for it to die after a turn or two if you didn't Bestow it, but that should still be good for an attack or two plus a curve interruption while they spend mana targeting it. There's also the slightly-less-obvious play of slapping it on your opponent's guy and then targeting it to give yourself the 4/4. I think as the game wears on this becomes a pretty insane topdeck if your opponent has no repeatable way to target on board, because even if they can target the thing you Bestow this on to make a monster you keep a 4/4 after the fact. What I think this will do most of the time is just get strapped to a flier on turn 5 and kill the opponent in about two swings.

Overall this is a powerful inclusion to the Limited format that will give the format more depth and richness when it's not just wailing on the face of the poor sap who can't interact with it.

thing to note: if you bestow this on an opponent's creature and target it to make them sacrifice, YOU get to keep the 4/4 nautilus, not them.

Speaking of which, such a trait seems fun with Riptide Chimera and Whitewater naiad. mono blue creature destruction once per turn.... sure, not the most efficient...but why not?

A 4/4 for 3 that dies to Giant Growth. Do note that it has the ability regardless of whether it's a creature or an Aura!

Second Nautilus in the gaaaame. The first being Chambered Nautilus. Who wasn't even one at the time it was printed.

Interesting card. If you have the right board position, you can slap this on an opponents creature to exploit the drawback and kill it. Don't build a deck around it, but it's a strategy worth considering if you're set up for it.

@Splizer: Even if you enchant a creature an opponent controls you still control the enchantment, so the Nautilus would actually stay on your side of the board. It's like an expensive, convoluted Shriekmaw in blue, which frankly suits the color.

Look, if you have something that taps to target, he's five mana for a blue removal spell that causes the opponent to sacrifice (Reality Acid is the only other one that comes to mind, and it's kinda clunky) and gives you a 4/4 with the illusion drawback. That's really not bad.

Cast on Lord of the Unreal in an illusion deck. After all, it's not like he doesn't already have a huge target painted on him, and it's not like he wouldn't die to absolutely anything anyways =D

@Separatist: The creature was still targeted, and would therefore need to be sacrificed. Unless he's giving it hexproof before you even cast the spell (which I wouldn't mind; he's tapping down a creature of his own and losing card advantage), the trigger still hits the stack.

I am glad that Magic finally has an Enchantment Creature: Nautilus. :,)
