The last ability should be an activated ability, like on Faerie Macabre: "Discard ~: target creature gets -1/-1 UEOT." If you want to really make it clear you could add "from your hand" before the colon.

Thanks, will have to reword the other cards to match.

What do you think of the mechanic ? The creatures are underpowered for their costs but that's because they keep coming back. Is it balanced or more work needed?

I think it's fair - it's like Reassembling Skeleton, so 1BB for a 1/1 flyer is about right. A deck full of them could get quite irritating - be sure to provide several anti-graveyard cards or exile cards in the set.
