This seems like a good card. It should be a creature instead of a "character," though.
Shaman creatures are generally red or green, and with an ability like Heat Shimmer, this card could fit in red pretty well.

Some minor mechanics/wording issues. Card should read:

2U, T: Tap target creature you control. Put a token that's a copy of that creature onto the battlefield. That token has haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

Targeting cannot be part of a cost. Move "Tap target creature you control" to the right of the colon.
Remove "under your control" from the effect. Tokens enter the battlefield under the control of whoever controls the ability that creates them, unless stated otherwise.
Examples: Hunted Dragon puts tokens on the battlefield "under target opponent's control," but Maul Splicer doesn't say its tokens enter the battlefield under your control.

@bigbrother: note it says "tap target creature you control" NOT "tap target untapped creature you control."
This means you can copy a creature with a nifty {T} ability to use the ability twice in one turn.
Also, attacking with a token copy is usually a better deal than attacking with the creature itself. It's possible your opponent could trade, blocking so that you each lose a creature. But if you attack with the token, they're much more likely to let the damage through, rather than lose a creature.
Not all cards are rare-level combo fodder; this is an excellent stand-alone uncommon.
The only thing from your comment that I agree with is that the card feels like it should be red.

My idea for this card was to create a creature that operates like Splinter Twin (when not enchanting Deceiver Exarch -_-). It allows you to make a copy of a creature to attack with each turn.

Generally, new players are afraid to attack with their creatures because they don't want them to be destroyed. With this card, who cares if the copy will be destroyed when your original is safe and you can just produce another copy the next turn?
