Name: Godfather of Drakes
Faction/Purity: 1 Cult of Verore, 1 Overseers of Solace
Type: Unique Character - Angel, Dragon - Champion
Rarity: Legendary
Cost: 7
Morale: 15
Attack/Health: 15/15
Rules Text:
Pay 1: Transform a target deployed Character into an 8/8 Dragon with Flying. It is Exhausted for the next turn. This ability can be activated up to twice per turn.
Pay 2: You may activate the effects of an Ability card from your Graveyard by paying its cost. It is then removed from play at the end of the turn.
Flavor Text:
A peculiar man on his striking mount of dazzling emerald scales, his descent on the battlefield only served to exponentially add to the casualties. His allegiance fickle, there was no telling what he could do when the techno-organic undead scourge was finally conquered. The angels, witches and mercenaries all regard the mysterious conscriptee with wary and dread-filled eyes.

Flavor Text:
A knight in gleaming black armor on his glorious winged mount of dazzling diamond scales, his inclusion to the battlefield only served to further the indiscriminate purge of weak-willed fools across the Rifts.
Flavor Text #2:
A high-ranking lieutenant in the unprecedented alliance between Rita and Sol, their maddening lust for power and conquest exacting countless lives from the other factions. Aberion, the champion of the Flame Dawn, would have to return with this dreaded knight's head so he could prove himself as the mightiest warrior among all those whoever dared to walk on the battlefield.

Name: Drake
Faction/Purity: 1 Cult of Verore, 1 Overseers of Solace
Type: Character - Dragon
Rarity: n/a
Cost: 4
Morale: 6
Attack/Health: 8/8
Rules Text:
Flying
Flavor Text:
"One of the many subjects of the Godfather of Drakes..."

EDIT: Removed other two effects because I think it made the card an easy swiss army knife on the unconventional CoV/OoS combination deck. Increased Morale for Drakes. Added restriction for transform effect. Added new second activateable affect.

Note:
He still transforms deployed characters into Dragons. Handy with Rita, Cornicen and Irial among other things. Stops things like Klore, Avatars, Last Sleepers as well. Up to twice per turn to stop abuse with sudden dragon armies or total shutdowns.
Second effect mirrors Superior Symbiote but targets abilities instead and then removes them from play to prevent cycling them repeatedly. So you can Mass Death for 8 resources but you don't even give a warning to your enemy besides having the Godfather anywhere in play.
Also helps with removing your own Unique abilities so you can play another one from your hand. Calamity or Die Another Day maybe...

I still think the instant removal/token generator whichever you choose to use it for is a bit too much for 1 cost. Does the 8/8 exhaust for the turn it is transformed? If not then you can get some good damage in before it is exhausted. If so you can keep transforming the same drakes to exhaust them every turn. Not to mention your opponent cant even hide from him in the support zone.

As for the graveyard cast, its quite a bit too cheap for what it does. I refer to Snapcaster Mage https://shop.tcgplayer.com/magic/innistrad/snapcaster-mage
One of the best, most OP cards in magic the gathering with a price at 40+ dollars per copy. It is a one time use 2 cost character that does what your card does. Except it can only do it once, and you have to draw the card rather than be able to use it nonstop from the beginning of the game.
