Table of Contents

Embrace the Shadow is a Priest-only spell. This card can be obtained from Whispers of the Old Gods packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Arena

In Arena, Embrace the Shadow is a very weak card as it is extremely unlikely you will get sufficient synergy to go with it.
