Strategy[]

Embrace darkness is just like LegacyMind Control but delayed with 4 less cost. It is useful in stealing priest decks as it is another card (besides Mind Control) to take control of an opponent's minion allowing you to spend your 4 mana elsewhere.

Because it is a delayed effect, if your opponent manages to remove the minion you select on their turn, it would be a waste of 6 mana. However, it forces your opponent to make unfavorable trades to try and remove the from the field or use spells to remove the minion (e.g. LegacyTwisting Nether, LegacyShadow Word: Pain, or LegacyShadow Word: Death)].

When used in conjunction with Freeze effects or disposable taunt minions, you can neutralize the threat's attack for the turn before you gain control of it, guaranteeing your opponent doesn't get value from it. However, using two cards to steal one minion is not efficient enough to be worth it, so it usually is easier just to Mind Control it anyways.
