Answered my own question... there was a boost... sort of. My Valkeria used Gouda as an item. Her base 30 strength ended up as 70 when she attacked. There was no HP change. The only correlation seemed to be the # of level 1 yellow creatures in play. I was playing against Whirlwind. As he leveled up his yellow creatures, the boost diminished. I'll try again tonight, protecting my level 1 yellow creatures and keeping track of Valkeria's strength with Gouda.

As a general rule, support creatures who use creatures as items only recieve that creatures listed St and Hp. It should also be noted that if you use a creature as an item who has a card sacrafice requirement you do not have to sac a card to use them as an item. You only have to pay the magic cost, no card sacraficing or land spotting necessary. This makes creatures like Behemoth (60/60) for 90 magic cost and Executer (70/20) for 60 magic cost very useful items in a support based book. Even Trample Weed provides a beefy +60 Hp for only 30 magic cost. The one exception to this rule is Son Ascetic who can use the ability of the creature used as support. Some of the cool things to work this with is a creature with First Attack, Card Destruction (Remora) or Battle Bonuses such as Wall of Ice (+30 Hp in battle, making him basically a +70 hp creature for only 40 magic cost when used as an item for Son Ascetic) or Nike (Paralysis). Son Ascetic has no base strength, but with the right creature used as support, he can be a versatile creature to use in a support book. Hope this helps. Good luck.
