You can play cards with flash at any time you can play an instant. See mystic snake for an example of a card with flash that has reminder text.
[indent]502.57. Flash

502.57a 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 play an instant."

502.57b Multiple instances of flash on the same object are redundant.[/indent]
whoooooooa flash is a powerful ability thank you !
Its most likely that your rulebook won't tell you what alot of the new and older abilities are :P Refer to the Comprehensive Rulebook or the FAQ for the set in question in the future.
