It's always been common. It's never been anything but common.
We already had one mana reanimation in modern with a versatility bonus in Claim // Fame. Sure it capped at 2 CMC rather than 3, but it could alsso make your creature (or some later creature) more powerful and hasty. And as much as I love Claim // Fame... as I understand it, it never really found an audience.
With respect, I think in a competitive environment this card is orders of magnitude better. Just the fact that it can actively cycle away to dig toward a potential target is a massive improvement to say nothing of being able to 'produce' mana by animating a hasty 3 drop for a single black.
