Choose an enemy minion. At the start of your turn, take control of it.
Once you both get comfortable, darkness is actually pretty snuggly.

|Golden Embrace Darkness||1600||400|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Embrace darkness is just like Mind 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. Twisting Nether, Shadow Word: Pain, or Shadow 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.
