I thought the "shape of water" meant something else.

    Easy 5 stras. This is so much better than Spiteful Summoner it’s absurd. And remember, Spiteful Summoner was nerfed for a good chunk of time- to a 7 mana 4/4. So for just 1 mana more, you get +2/+2, AND you draw the spell AND you’re not locked out of using cheap spells.

    Very nice minion for control decks.

    I think you guys should remember that Animated Broomstick is still a thing, and completely solves the issue of “not having an immediate board impact”.

    Play this on turn 9 together with a broomstick and you get a 6/6 plus some other heavy 8/8ish minion on average, and you’d get to rush a full 14 damage into your enemy’s minions.

    I doubt this card will be an auto-include(I still feel like some classes can do even nastier stuff with 9 mana than playing this and broomstick) but it’ll DEFINITELY find a place somewhere in the meta. So, 4-4.5/5 for me.

    Spiteful was good at 6 mana! After the nerf to 7 mana was mehh so 8 mana with “tutored draw” feels bad for me… Also needs a restricted build around deck that a few classes could run it, Druid? Shaman?

    I’ve done some of My Homework, and Overall, Druids Priests, Big Spell Mages, and Surprisingly Tonk Guardian Animals Hunter (if that will ever be a deck) can actually use Primordial Protector.

    Warlock can Kiiinda do this since Twisting Nether is technically out there, but overall the average Cost Spell you’re going to draw about 4-6 mana as a spell, as of right now.

    But just imagine that Control is going to use Primordial Protector, but if they can get away with it.

    It’s powerful, but only when does right. Now, having an 8 mana “10/10” is pretty nice as your average card does sound powerful, I feel like we’ve reached a point in hearthstone where we have gained more and more power overall that it feels like a Primordial was a 7 mana 4/4 with a good battlecry if it were a card years ago.

    I think it’s going to be 3 Mana, as a Tech card. Again, It’s powerful, but due to its slowness, and what specific card you need to draw, Players will just feel discouraged to use Primordial Protector. But, Who knows, maybe Control Decks will be able to use the Protector and still feel good.

      Literally any deck that is slow, values having minions on board and has a handful(maybe 2-4) of expensive spells would be looking to run this.

    Its elemental tag can be relevant too, don’t forget about that!

    Good on paper but noone will play a 8 mana tutor with no real impact on the board.

      True, the issue that it doesn’t have taunt or rush is a serious detriment to this card. But hopefully the massive board swing you get from this guy is more than enough to make up for it.

      For example, this card might find a place in Big Druid. You can tutor survival of the fittest with this card AND summon a big 10-drop. Even though you’re basically doing nothing on T8(unless you get lucky and that random 10-drop has taunt or rush), Druids have been doing nothing for most of the game up to that point. Plus, Druids can potentially get up to 8 mana long before their opponents can build a decent board to hit face.

    Clown Druid staple (If anyone still plays it)

    Love it. Big spell mage and Druid card?

    Seems too slow for most decks, but if druid can still ramp this could be a thing.

    Woah. Summon a 6/6 body and RNG minion (probably 10 mana) while drawing a high cost spell.
    Totally awesome card.

      If the 10 mana spell is still in your deck also you could low roll on the minion, good for establishing a board presence and tutoring a possible win condition.

        Draw 10 mana and summon Darkmoon Rabbit. LOL

          To be fair, on the right board, the bunny could still be enough of a swing.

              This tutors Grand Finale for two 8/8 the following turn. Slow and meme-y, but still…

              I would say, at 10 mana, on average the lowest rolls would be C’thun and N’Zoth, although sometimes the rabbit is even worse, and sometimes the rabbit is one of the highest rolls available. Scrapyard colossus is almost always the highest possible roll at 10 mana, although there are a few solid stat-piles.
