If I'm not mistaken the average 5 mana minion in standard has 4.1/4.7 stats (Validated Doomsayer included as 0/7). So a pretty weak body for 7 but the battlecry "deal 5 damage" is pretty strong. Really good in arena, will maybe see play in constructed.
This seems really powerful. Only drawback is that it occupies the same mana slot as Flamestrike and Archmage Antonidas. Still, for this 1 card, you deal 5 damage (4 mana value) and summon a 5-cost minion. That's 9 mana of value in a single 7-mana card.
As an aside, I'm wondering, if this card summons a Summoning Stone, do you also get a random 7-mana minion as well?
We told them 5-cost minions were lacking, they delivered. I wonder what the other portals will look like since this seems to be really promising.

I'm just another one of those. You know, those who do things. Things that need to be done by those that do these things in order to do those things that don't do these things themselves. Has the word 'things' lost meaning to you already?
