How to get
- This card's triggered effect triggers whenever a card is drawn and creates a cost-modification enchantment attached to the drawn card that reduces its mana cost by 1. In particular:
- This card's effect does trigger if the card is put into hand (for example through King's Elekk, Sense Demons, Tracking or Captain's Parrot) or generated instead of being drawn from the deck.
- As usual, effects that copy cards (such as Chromaggus and Thistle Tea) do not copy enchantments attached to those cards (including Shadowfiend's cost-reduction).
- Example: If you have a Shadowfiend in play when you cast Holy Wrath, Shadowfiend triggers on the card being drawn before damage is dealt, and Holy Wrath deals 1 less damage.
- Example: If you have a Shadowfiend in play when you play Gnomish Experimenter, Shadowfiend triggers before Gnomish Experimenter, so the mana cost of the Chicken that enters your hand will not be reduced by 1.
Best used with other effects that draw cards. Northshire Cleric works well with this card.
- Shadowfiend is a priest spell that summons a Shadowfiend to fight alongside the priest for 12 seconds, dealing Shadow damage. A pet action bar appears for the priest to command and control its spells.
The Shadowfiend serves as a source of additional damage output, and previously as a means of restoring mana. Priests can upgrade the Shadowfiend with the Mindbender talent, altering its appearance and causing its attacks to restore mana as well as dealing extra damage.
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Fires of Outland" series, for the card Shadowfiend.
