"another creature"?

or "you may"?

The stats of this are chosen to reflect blue common fliers with a drawback like Scrapskin Drake and Hinterland Drake. It is also a direct reference to Shrieking Drake.

If I make it all upside I would hence adjust the stats.

I probably post-pone the decision until playtesting (which will likely tell me 90% of my ideas still are bad).

It's probably worth mentioning Kor Skyfisher. For what it's worth, I think the Skyfisher is one of the best white commons out there, so I don't think it's unreasonable to cost it a full {1} more.

That said, the card is already worse than the Skyfisher in two ways (Skyfisher can return any permanent) so I'd include the "another creature" clause. It at least gives you a reason to play this over Fisher in some decks (decks that are low on non-land permanents that is.)
