The Priest's Shadowform states that your Hero Spell does damage instead of healing. If you're already in Shadowform, it deals 3 damage instead of 2.

But what happens if you cast Shadowform again after this? Will your damage keep increasing by one or does it cap at 3 and any additional Shadowform casts are useless?

    Based on card text I believe it would remain 3, but I have not been able to test that theory. Easiest way to test would be for you and a friend to duel using Priest vs Priest, each with 2 Thoughtsteal, Mindgames, Shadowform and a Lorewalker Cho Apr 14, 2014 at 13:12

    I stand corrected about the impossibility of being able to play more than 2 of the same card now...

  • In Arena, you can also play more than 2. That's not suitable for testing though for obvious reasons.

  • The question is valid enough, though the possibility is somewhat kinda slim I guess. But Im looking forward for someone to test this out.

    The only reason why you would play three is if you wanted to use hero power again.
