Flash is a keyword ability which allows cards to be played at any time you could play an Instant. Flash first appeared in the Time Spiral expansion [1], its first appearance in a core set is in Magic 2013. Although this ability existed before Time Spiral, this is the first time it was used a keyword. The earliest card with Flash is King Cheetah from Visions. Older cards with this ability have received errata to give them Flash.

From the Comprehensive Rules:

  • 702.8. Flash
    • 702.8a Flash is a static ability that functions in any zone from which you could play the card it’s on. "Flash" means "You may play this card any time you could cast an instant."
    • 702.8b Multiple instances of flash on the same object are redundant.
