Aqueous Form

Unblockability AND scrying? Sign me up! Throw this on anything bigger than a 3/3 and it's basically Game Over: You Win. On a smaller creature it's still a force to be reckoned with that will whiddle away your opponent while it smooths out your draws. I personally would play it on a smaller creature-- not just because I like to scry, but because I would rather force my opponent to use his kill spell on a small creature I don't actually care about losing than on a 5/5 monstrosity that can probably already cave his face in without the help.

You get way, way more than you pay for on this card. Consider that newer "saboteur" style creatures tend not to also have evasive abilities, and that many of them put you far ahead with even one attack. Consider that scrying even one card deep is a valuable saboteur ability in itself, and can improve your position disproportionately. The great thing about this aura is that it works on almost any kind of creature - it turns a smaller creature into a disruptive threat and a large creature into an unstoppable monstrosity. How many cards can say that?

Today's card of the day is Aqueous Form which is a one mana Blue aura that gives unblockable and Scry 1 whenever the enchanted creature attacks.  One mana to give a creature true evasion is an excellent bargain and combines with many when attacks are declared or damage an opponent.  That alone would make this a psolid card, but adding in a beneficial library manipulator that activates by doing something you'd likely do anyway it becomes one of the top auras.  There is still a risk of a two for one, but this effect alongside Hexproof is a serious threat to just about any opponent and should see frequent play competitively and casually.
 
In Limited this is a game winner with even a moderately powerful creature and should always be played when even a splash of Blue mana is being used in Sealed.  A strong second choice in Booster and one of the more dangerous cards in the format, particularly alongside Heroic and Scry effects.

Aqueous Form

This is a great Aura for creatures with hexproof or for players out there that have fallen in love with Consuming Aberration. There are a lot of unblockable auras out there but Aqueous Form gives you the ability to scry 1. If you’ve been playing Magic at all in the past 10 years then you should know that the Scry ability is very useful. Try putting Aqueous Form on a creature that draws cards when it deals combat damage. Aqueous Form is a card that may never see play in any competitive formats, but Limited players should have an eye out for this card.
