    Auto 5 stars, I think there is a chance this card might break the game....

    Just might because it requieres a deck with some real big stuff

    I suppose control decks want this. Kind of a steeldancer, which is sometimes OK. 

    Maybe a survival of the Fittest Druid wants this?

    Well this is insanely overpowered. If you put enough big spells in your deck it's basically 8 mana 6/6 summon a 9 or 10 cost minion and draw a big spell.

    Disclaimer: if the above is factually incorrect or complete rubbish it is definitely both intentional and  comedy genius.

    Primordial Protector seems really powerful in the right deck, but it's not clear to me that a deck with huge spells also wants to run an 8 mana 6/6 - might just be too much top end to be viable.

    It's similar to Spiteful Summoner, only slower and more reliable. It is 8 mana but it puts two bodies on the board and adds a card to your hand. The main problem is that it won't always have an immediate impact on the board. The spell will be too expensive to play, and the minion summoned may not be any good. 

    I may be underestimating this card, but outside of ramp druid I don't see this being broken.

    Oh no...I really disliked Spiteful Summoner, and although this does seem slower, I still fear what could happen.

    Kinda like Spiteful Summoner. The text is similar, yet also different. You can add cheap spells into your deck with high-cost spells.

    It is also an improvement over Spiteful to draw that high-cost spell, instead of just revealing it. That high-cost spell can be played on curve as AoE.

    It doesn't provide the same tempo swing since it costs 8 mana, but still very, very solid.

    OBLIVION!

    Being able to cheat this out a few turns with The Coin and/or Lightning Bloom is sure to be annoying.  It's like Spiteful Summoner part 2.

    WILD: LPG Mage maybe? This card might see play in very specific decks.

    Exactly this. With two Blooms and a Coin, turn three. It's going to happen at some point.

    Spiteful summoner, but with elemental support? Interesting, and I like the "highest" cost aspect, but so far as I remember, the highest shaman spell is 8?

    Looks like a card that may give rise to a new archetype akin to Spitefull decks. Mages have some elemental synergy and lots of spells, so they could very well use this. Shaman has (so far) only Tidal Wave and Runic Carvings, but it's an elementa and spell synergy so we'll probably get a ten cost spell for shaman. But the best fit would be Druid, with Survival of the FittestCenarion Ward and Guardian Animals, maybe in an Nzoth deck. Seems meta defining!
