The least spectacular card of the blue land-untapping goodies from Urza's Saga, but still a decent card.
Cascading into it with Enlisted Wurm or Enigma Sphinx would be fun for sure.
Then again, using it to cascade into something else with Maelstrom Nexus should be even more fun!
Flickering it with Momentary Blink can also provide great mana accel. Three mana on the first use, one on the second use. Nine mana on turn five doesn't sound that bad.

@DeathParallax
It isn't a dragon, so your point is rather moot. It's a Drake, and Drake's are not the same as dragons at all. Dragons can be in any color, and are likely to be multiple colors. Dragons are about flying for heavy damage, often times with defenses that make them harder to ignore. Drake's are much more blue-oriented, such as the Spiketail Hatchling, who counters a spell, or Chromescale Drake, that reveals cards from your library, or Darkslick Drake, that allows to to draw a card. I'm not saying Peregrine Drake is an amazing card, but don't expect it to be one thing when it's another.

@darthparallax:

Are you looking at the same card? 6 mana? This is 4U, untaps up to 5 lands and is 2/3 flying which is certainly better in my book than 4U untap 2 3/3 you suggest.

@darthparallax:

I agree. Having to wait longer to play it, but being able to play it for "free" is what broke the mechanic. I could see the "Rebate" mechanic you suggested work work quite well, and give blue the opportunity to finally get a 2/2 for "1U". Example:

Peregrine Sage 2BlueBlue
Creature - Human Wizard
When Peregrine Sage enters the battlefield, untap up to two lands.
2/2

you could even have it spill over to other colors:

Paths Forgotten 2Green
Sorcery
Search your library for a basic land card and put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Untap up to one land.

This way, you could either use it to get the land you searched effectively enter the battlefield untapped, OR untap a different land you control, making it slightly better than Untamed Wilds.

Depending on your lands, Peregrine Drake goes infinite with Nim Deathmantle and any sac engine. I would suggest Goblin Bombardment/Blasting Station, but then you wouldn't need your infinite mana for anything, so I'll have to say Greater Good, a land that taps for Red, and one copy each of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Devil's Play.

I love this card. Creatures for free are fantastic, and that it's a decently strong flier is just gravy.

I usually don't like magic's older art, but this would be an exception.
