Card is missing a power and toughness, and also the X in the cost does not do anything.

Hmm, yeah - it needs some way to remember the value of X between the casting and the invocation. (At least, I assume that's meant to be how it works?) And you probably need to add explicitly revealing their hand too.

It's a very interesting card, though.

It already says opps play with their hands revealed, and @Vitenka, the X in the CMC has nothing to do with the X in the activated ability.

What does it mean, then?

There are two possible interpretations of this:

1) The card costs {x}{u} to play and enters as an X/X. Later, you can choose any card in an opponent's hand, and pay the CMC of that card whatever it is, to cast it. It needs words to make it an X/X, probably like Ivy Elemental.

2) The card costs {x}{u} to play and is something like a 2/2. Whatever X you chose and paid, that's the CMC of cards you can cast from opponents' hands. It needs words to help you preserve the value of X from casting time to later activation time, probably like Riptide Replicator.

Yeah, sorry. Some of these cards are incomplete thoughts at the moment. I have updated it now to at least make some sense.
