So the most obvious card to compare this with, is obviously Arcane Giant. The most logical question is from here. Is a 7/8 with Taunt stronger than an 8/8 without? And i would say yes. Yes it is stronger.
Something like Combo Priest will probaly like this card, as they do play a TON of cheap spells. And a low cost 7/8 is quickly going to stablize the board for them. And we all know how strong Combo Priest is, when they have the board.

I want a new title, but Flux won't let me have one,
I actually think Big Priest has much better options. Wild Big Priest won't run it for sure. In Standard it remains to be seen if a Big Priest gets viable again and even then I don't think it will make the cut.
I will have to hold my vote. Priest needs this early to mid game to make use of it. Without Lyra or a spell generator, this will be too little, too late. Perhaps, it will synergies with the Troll champion.
it has a really high cost, it's not that overpowered. I'd play just 1 in competitive, what if u get this in the first 5 turns? Useless.
We're also talking about a new meta that seems going to be very fast and very aggro, it's not that bad but lyra and radiant are the only viable way to play this card, and you have to play at least 8 spells to make it viable.
Sorry to say that but I'm not impressed. It's definitely awful for a Big Priest. You want powerful Deathrattles or End-Of-Turn effects there. Spell-heavy Control Priest has better options. Midrange Priests are usually low on spells and mostly play Dragons on curve.
So, the card itself is playable in a vacuum but there doesn't seem to be a deck where it fits.
