Champion of the Parish gains +1/+1 "Whenever a another human enters the battlefield under your control". If I play Nyxborn Shieldmate as a bestow does it count toward this effect? I know it does not count as a creature but it is still a human is it not?
According to the definition of "Bestow" (702.102a), the card will enter as an Aura spell.
"Bestow [cost]" means "You may cast this card by paying [cost] rather than its mana cost." and "If you chose to pay this spell’s bestow cost, it becomes an Aura enchantment and gains enchant creature.
The game will remove the
Creature type from the card. Since
Human is a subtype of
Creature and not a subtype of
Aura, the card loses the
Human subtype per 205.1a
"If an object's card type is removed, the subtypes correlated with that card type will remain if they are also the subtypes of a card type the object currently has; otherwise, they are also removed for the entire time the object's card type is removed."
The ability won't trigger since the card does not have the subtype
