Card Name: Shimmerfly
Type: Minion (Beast)
Effect: 'Deathrattle: Add a random Hunter spell to your hand.'
Inven Global's exclusive card reveal for 'Rise of Shadows', the first Hearthstone expansion of the Dragon Year, is a Hunter minion, Shimmerfly.

You can also consider using Shimmerfly in conjunction with the other cards from the 'Rise of Shadows' expansion.

In summary, Shimmerfly isn't a card that can singlehandedly change the outcome of a game. However, as a 1-cost beast minion that provides a free Hunter spell upon its death, Shimmerfly is a versatile minion that could be used in most Hunter deck types.
