This is a Suntail Hawk with Flash, which can be played in two colors. It can't be played on your first turn, but it's so flexible and cheap, plus it has a nice bonus. I love it.

This hoses the retrace mechanic in Eventide.
And to get a 1/1 flyer for one mana at instant speed isn't that bad, even if it doesn't function on the first turn in most cases.

Would this be able to exile Emrakul, The Aeons Torn before it's graveyard shuffling effect triggers?

1/1 flyer for 1. With flash. And a useful 'comes into play' effect. In black.

Could be a great response to snapcaster mage in modern. Not only can you respond to the snapcaster trigger, exiling the card they target, you also get a 1/1 which essentially negates the snapcaster in terms of board advantage.

The best part though is that it's not only good as a graveyard hate card. It also has the added versatility of simply being an efficient creature.

On another note the flavor and name are also pretty cool.

Not sure what AlphaNumerical was thinking. This card has nice combos within its own set with Deathbringer Liege and Voracious Hatchling. With the liege, you kill something, exile a card from a graveyard, and get a 1/1 with flying for 1. The much less effective combo with the hatchling just removes 2 of the counters, which is quite useful, if you didn't know.

Also, those who recall Teysa, Orzhov Scion, this can be used to fuel her first ability. With three of these and her alone, you exile 3 cards from a graveyard, and exile one from the battlefield. Albeit it you won't have 3 at once, just having that slight extra boost would always be nice.

Nice common, but rather in limited.

Strictly better than Funeral Pyre.
