Hey, that's a neat giant monster creature you're building. I'm just going to send my pal Zoidberg over to join in, all right?

"Hooray, I'm helping!"

A surprisingly versatile card, though in each job it can perform it has drawbacks.

1) Attacking on its own as a 4/4 attacker for 3, which as any blue mage will tell you is relatively violent. And yet, like an Illusory Demon it also happens to be as fragile as tin foil and in this format, even more so.

2) Bestowing your own creature to make it a monster. Said creature becomes vulnerable, but getting a 4/4 back out of the deal is a very. I think this will shine when put on something relatively small, like Spiteful Returned or Vaporkin.

3) Bestowing onto enemy creature in order to kill them with a spell or ability. This is a way to kill something particularly nettlesome, but could cost you card advantage when dealing with the 4/4 coming to kill you, AND the fact you expended the Nautilus form your hand in the first place. And in a pinch, even a card in taking out the bestowed creature!

Damn, now it's officially too late to go back on Nautilus as a creature type (but there's still hope for Magic's three Squids!).

I love the card, but its typing seems like poor form in a block with Octopus tribal.

Limited tip: Because you can put your own bestow cards on your opponent's creatures, if an opponent has one of these you can bestow something on it to kill it. I killed this twice at the prerelease by putting a Leafcrown Dryad on it. I love cards like this that reward you for thinking outside the box :P

Had an issue recently where this was bestowed on a Prognostic Sphinx. An opponent targets the sphinx with a spell and in response the sphinx's owner activates its Hexproof ability. Does the creature Crystalline Nautilus is bestowing still get sacrificed, or does the spell trying to target it just fizzle?

1) If I have a DARING THIEF that untaps (inspired trigger) and target MY Crystalline Nautilus, an effect will go on the stack to sac the Nautilus, but then the inspired trigger would resolve from the thief, so would I get to steal my opponents creature / aura / enchantment creature, while they get nothing in return?

2) Also... if the Nautilus is in play as a creature, what exactly can I trade him for, same question if he is in play bestowed.

Thanks!

(My understanding is I could steal a creature, while they get nothing, - you're welcome =).... (but unfortunately I am a tad confused at the legal targets I have (part 2))



For the guy above me; whether or not the spell on it resolves, the effect of targeting goes on the stack, thus you would have to sacrifice it. The only way to stop it, would be to use the discard ability during each upkeep step, to prevent anything but instants and activated creature abilities that target, from being cast on... (see all)
