If Iona is fine in the format, an eight mana is fine.

There's nothing wrong with it.

It's similar to which is fine. It's double the cost so as to focus on a single player. Not too bad.

Yes it can suck - but if it shows up more, then you metagame and increase the # of answers to it you have (ie, swap your acidic slime for a non-creature answer such as creeping mold, etc.)

I wouldn't play it. Not because it's bad but because, and let me first start by saying that this is completely opinion based, it is an un-fun card. I shuffle up to play cards. Not to sit and watch everyone else have a good time. I believe my opponents feel the same and I don't want to put them into an un-fun situation. It's the same reason I don't play Iona, which I believe is a spot on comparison. I also don't run stax or non-interactive combo decks.

Iona should have been banned ages ago, and this card can go with it as far as I'm concerned, along with Solemnity, the 3 mana Iona for counters based decks. The less cancerous garbage in the format the better.

I'd like to point out that "cannot gain counters" doesn't mean "cannot change its power/toughness". There's a lot of cards that increase and decrease pt without bestowing counters.
