Grasping At Shadows
Grasping at Shadows was introduced in card set 1: The Empty Throne.
What Does Grasping At Shadows Do?
This card can be thought of as a more powerful version of Dark Return. Like that spell, Grasping At Shadows returns a unit from your Void. The main difference advantage of Grasping at Shadows is that instead of the card simply going into your hand it is immediately played onto the battlefield for no additional Power cost.
So for cost of 5 Power you can play any unit in your Void, regardless of its nominal power cost. That gives a great deal of flexibility and allows you to deal with the situation where your opponent has killed off a key unit such as Shadowlands Feaster or Vara, Fate-Touched.
Unlike Dark Return, Grasping At Shadows doesn't give the returned unit a +1/+1 buff. For a high cost card that probably doesn't matter much. However if you only have cheap, low power cards in your void you might be better off using the cheaper spell and taking the buff.
