Not sure if you become dark like the shadowform spell because i'm not in the beta, but it would be cool it you became shadow.
The Priest has 3 hero powers:
1. You start with
2. After using Shadowform, it becomes
3. After using Shadowform again, it becomes
If you cast Shadowform again if you are already at the 3 damage version, nothing happens. (You can legally have 3 or more Shadowforms in the Arena, or if you
an enemy Priest with one, or even duplicate it by using

Shadowform will cause the enemy player's (if non-Priest) hero power to become Mind Spike if they use a Shadowform obtained through the use of

before playing Shadowform, because you lose the ability to heal minions and yourself at will. Sometimes, being able to heal is worth more in the presence of cards like
, or simply keeping a key minion alive because it has
or some other beneficial effect (for eg,
Because the 3 hero powers are considered DIFFERENT hero powers, you can use
, cast Shadowform, THEN use
all on the same turn. So even though you can't use any particular hero power more than once per turn, you can use two different hero powers once on the same turn.
Shadow Priest decks are still in their infancy in my opinion. There just aren't enough cards to support it right now. Shadowform easily makes your hero power trump all others though, at least the damaging ones. Throw in a second shadowform and

This might be the most golden card/ the best golden card in the game since it makes your hero ability golden through the whole game.
I've been trying two copies of this card again and have this to say about it:
It's a great and powerful card, but is more or less strictly a card for picking off any low health minions in the mid-late game and onwards. The mana cost and tempo loss is too much of a price to pay for this card in the early game, so mulligan out of these if you see them in the opening draw.
Try to save playing your Shadowform for the Hero Power -> Shadowform -> Hero Power trick. Nothing feels better than picking off a 2 health minion and a 3 health minion in the same turn, or possibly a 5 health minion without needing to use a precious damage spell or a minion's vitality. While this kind of play is certainly not mana efficient, it's card efficient. In longer games where card efficiency becomes the win condition, this could be especially important. If a 2 and 3 health minion just happen to be on the other side of the board, this could be your best play regardless.
is still useful in a deck with Shadowform. While her effect is redundant in Shadowform with regards to the hero power, it's still effective in combination with
Earthen Ring Farseer
Circle of Healing
, cards I would recommend using regardless. Her body on the field is also a nontrivial one and she's a scary turn 4 play while playing Shadowform at that stage is ill advised. There's also the chance that you might not draw Shadowform but will draw Soulpriest, and will have to depend on her for your indirect board damage.
The loss of being able to heal yourself or minions hurts after playing Shadowform, especially if you depend on
in your deck for card draw. Consider cards like
, Circle of Healing, Earthen Ring Farseer etc. for backup healing and to activate Northshire Cleric's effect once you go into Shadowform.

becomes a 6 damage wrecking ball. As with all Prophet Velen combos, it's best to drop him right before you fire off a nuke as he tends not to last long on the field.
