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.
5 spells to make it "fair", 7 spells to make it good & 9 or more to make it great. The question is how fairly can you play the spells and in what way are they going to interact with a big minion.
Arcane giant was mostly played in burn decks like mage or druid as a tempo drop and especially the mage spells lend themselves more to that. Maybe a control priest will use this as a giant agro stopper midgame?
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.
