See Flailing Flames and Winged Whisperer.
Yes, these are weird for the sake of it.

So... If I pay {1}{u} and cast this in the normal manner, when it resolves, does this actually try to enter the battlefield? Does it do its sorcery thing first? From the costs (of Winged Whisperer especially) I'm guessing yes, but I'd have to check the Comp Rules first. It'd definitely need reminder text.

Edit:

> 608.2k As the final part of an instant or sorcery spell’s resolution, the spell is put into its owner’s graveyard.

> 608.3. If the object that’s resolving is a permanent spell, its resolution involves a single step (unless it’s an Aura). The spell card becomes a permanent and is put onto the battlefield under the control of the spell’s controller.

...I think that implies that at the moment, this is put into a graveyard if I cast it. It needs something else to put it onto the battlefield to make it get there.

I had that text here originally in my first draft of the ability, but it looked silly. I suppose it's necessary, though.

Edited to use the Linger keyword.
