Newbie question here. I've seen a lot of people talking up the Shadow Spirit, but I can't figure out what is so great about it. Wouldn't you want something a bit bigger? Thanks in advance.

It's all about dice efficiency.  2/1 for 1 die is already a pretty good value.  But once you focus the ready spell, getting a 2/2 or a 2/3 for just 1 die is crazy good value.  Illusion isn't really a drawback because most of the time its actually in battle with another Unit it dies anyway.

Plus, with these spells where X = life, you can meditate as a side action later in the game when your battlefield is full to clear the ready spells off of your spellboard and auto-kill these guys, opening up a battlefield slot for something big like a Bear.
