General Comments

Embrace the Shadow is a powerful Combo card that can be used to activate burst damage Combos with Priest much more cheaply than the usual Auchenai Soulpriest.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Embrace the Shadow can be used in a Control Priest deck that tries to build up a hand containing this card Prophet Velen and various burn cards. After discounting them with Emperor Thaurissan this will enable a huge burst damage turn, similar to the strategy of Freeze Mage.



Embrace the Shadow is no longer available in Arena.
