PS: poor grammars :)
Nevermore the Shadow Fiend is a ranged agility Hero possessing abilities that inflict superb burst damage from varying distances. Whether near or far, Shadow Fiend is able to release incredible offensive power, both physical and magical. Shadow Fiend's true power comes from the souls he takes, thus, he is more dangerous every time he kills. Hence, once it had enough souls, he can release all of the captured souls in a devastating burst/nuke, dealing high damage to enemies that are closer to him. Shadow Fiend is a carry who is powerful at all stages of the game, a trait most carries don't share. He can harass and conquer early game, gank unsuspecting Heroes during the mid stages, and has huge right-click potential late game thanks to his passives, although his active abilities scale off by the end-game.
If you playing mid and against those heroes who have high magic damages like Queen Of Pain, OD, Invoker, Pudge or <insert Heroes>..........
You make sure that u pulling the creeps into the tower and farm some damages for your necromastery(3rd skills) to max up the souls and don't forget to pulling some creeps on every 53-55 secs on netruals ; just have maxed out the raze on level 7 and ganking the lanes and teleport back in the middle lane to farm some esst. items IMO.
Take some goodies support that can early roaming for helping harassing ..
-Vengenful Spirit, Pudge*, bane, mirana, lion, bounty hunter , omniknight else any support heroes... to cover up your middle lane basis harassing the heroes
middle game combo,
if you have very good combos heroes like Tidehunter, Magnus, Sand King, Warlock or some very powerful aoe heroes that can relyin' on the dogfight on the games.. and ensure that you was standby for the ultimate skills to release it to 'doomed' those enemy heroes [nearby enemies, 1 skill should KO it] wisely.. spare up Black King Bar to fight them all
Another tips, get a shadow blade to roam for ganking those jungler heroes like Lone Druid, Legion Commd, lifestealer or furion..., just ultimate it nearby them[NEVER GO RIGHT CLICK ON HEROES, IT MAY BREAK YOUR INVISIBILITY, just go sneaky nuke it]
if they have some high DPS heroes like Sven, PA, TB or very good teamfight heroes, get assault curaiss[good for your presence of dark lord,which decreasing enemy armors, offers attack speed and arms. for your team] , Etheral Blade [blast high DPS/High Magic Damage] to stop their supports/carries and ensure that some support was VERY CAREFULLY besides you, and try to get some disablers to 'blocks' those initiators that always get rid on you
