Curious, this feels like a downgrade.

How so? Since Unicorns are more magical focused I wanted their magical horn abilities.

All you gave them was a bonus to penetrate SR and identify things, which isn't nothing, I admit.
You took away the ability of their horn to do ANYTHING but slowly pick up light objects and move them around. Mage hand is awful.

Yeah I do wish that Mage Hand scaled with level. More like
Mage Hand- able to manipulate a number of objects with a total weight of 5lbs/Lv.
But as a Cantrip it can be used an unlimited number of times per day, instead of Unseen Servant which would be a 1/day due to being a Level 1 spell.

You gave them unlimited uses of trash, instead of 3 hours per level per day of genuine usefulness.

An unseen servant is an invisible, mindless, shapeless force that performs simple tasks at your command.
It is an entity unto itself. It does not fit the basic function of the Unicorn Magic which is more like telekinesis. An unseen servant can preform tasks when the caster isn't even in the room but Unicorn Magic is line of sight. Maybe making a new thing for them would be better, something that fits more with MLP

Unicorn Magic
Cantrip
Cast Time: 1 stanard action
Range: 25 feet
Target: a single or number of items with a total weight of 5lbs/character level
Duration: Concentration (only when in combat or when in stressful situations)
