Your code uses a token which is considered a workaround by devs but it will do the trick ;) The only flaw I can see (and it seems minimal) is a slight difference between the text and the effect as you coded it. Your effect will give you the choice to (or not to) put into play EVERY remaining Squadron Hawk from your library while the text leaves it up to you to add only 1 even if there are 3 left in your library. Except for that little lack of flexibility, I don't see any major flaw and I honestly think that even if given the option... in most case any player would put into play all his S.H. left in his library rather than only a fraction of them.

Cheers!

if you use "all(" instead....as naz pointed out, you dont even need to have a token at all....

name=Squadron Hawk
abilities=flying
auto=may moveto(myhand) all(Squadron Hawk|mylibrary)
text=Flying

this would bring it even closer to not being a workaround then using a token to fetch the hawks....
