This can be used in a thunderhead deck/Zentimo deck. Play it out on a given turn and then play thunderhead plus 2x Zap drawing 2x lightning bolt drawing rockbiter/windfury. You've cleared the board and started to set up for a Zentimo combo kill.
Also it could be used to draw six 1 cost spells (lightning bolt, totemic slam, and Frost Shock) that can be used in maly shaman with 6 zero cost spells (2 zap, 2 Ancestral Healing, 2 Totemic might. Then play a couple turns of Eureka + spells and win
OK , so we know discount spell work in the mana you pay for em not it true cost ( trump vidio shows 0 mana Lava Burst draws a 1 mana spell ) but if you don't have a spell that cost 1 more or only have spells that are equle or lower to it cost, what do you get ?????
Currently this card doesn't have quite enough support but give shaman a few more spells to fill in the weaker slots on the curve and it will completely break the game. In wild this card is already insane because, if you just have this and Lightning Bolt, you can go bolt into Crackle, Lava Burst, and Jade Lightning for roughly 16.
In constructed this can do the same thing (substituting Crackle for Rockbiter Weapon which can also do 6 if you have Doomhammer equipped). The only problem is that it's not certain that the rest of the Standard set has the support for a hyperaggressive burn Shaman deck. Likkim is certainly a huge help in that direction.
Don't forget that this works with the coin. Play this - coin draw 1 mana spell, play that spell and draw 2 mana spell. That 2 mana spell is Earthen Might or Cryostasis and you have an almost guaranteed target for it next turn.
This on 3, Hex whatever opp plays on 4, have a guaranteed volcano on 5th... isn't bad at all, too
This card is insanely good, better card review until now in this expansion.
4 manas, play this card, the 0 mana spell kill a 2 health minion, draw 1 mana spell kill a 3 heath minion, draw 2 cost spell, next turn play the 2 cost spell and draw a 3 cost spell, your opponent must have a removal to kill this minion because you clear the board with so many removals in a row.
no offense trump but this is not better than UI in any universe, even if the shaman deck that plays it is somehow the most insane tier 0 deck imaginable. UI has already carried multiple such decks since its release from jade druid to malygos.

Formerly Sneeds. Twitch merge locked me out of my old account :(
Interesting effect, but I don't see how it works in practice. How many spells can you draw in one turn? Because that's how long this thing lasts in most games. Not to mention how many spells you would need to run in your deck to rack up some crazy, Stargazer Luna style combo.
I dunno - hopefully it could work in some crazy spell-based Shaman deck but I'm not optimistic.
What is so difficult to understand that it works only for 1 turn?
the heck? this is not a battlecry, it's a passive ability and it has stealth, you could easily get two turns of this, it doesn't work only for 1 turn

Big priest was never a problem until Lesser Diamond Spellstonegot printed, and this spellstone breaks way too many decks asides from big priest, basically compare it to gallery and you can see that spellstone should cost more than gallery, barnes isn't a problem in any other deck, spellstone tho, spellstone is a problem in many different priest decks both in standard and wild.
