Every color has one or more iconic creature types. Green has wurms, red has dragons, giants, and phoenixes, blue has sphinxes and krakens, white has angels, and black has demons. These creatures are normally only seen at 4 cmc or higher. My criteria to you is to choose an iconic creature type and make a card for it that costs 3 or less mana, which still mechanically feels like it belongs in that creature type.

Uh, those aren't the iconic races. The iconic races are Angels, Sphinxes, Demon, Dragons, and Hydras.

Captain Lunch: Eww islandhome. Still, I guess that makes it feel like a serpent.
Mata Hari: Cute flavor, interesting but probably negligible drawback. Shouldn't it be a kitten tho? Sphinxes are cats, not bears.
Dudibus: Fits the criteria, feels like a hydra, but you can actually cast it for :g: without it immediately dying. Nice.

JV: I guess this is a card. Adding "cherub" in there helps justify the fact that it's so small. Mechanically sound, if unexciting.
FM: Fair, fair.
PBP: it's k.

CKY: I like it. It can get really out of control, but it can also be stopped cold if they have a 2 power blocker and you don't have a trick. Feels really hydra-y too.
