Re: F YOU BLIZZARD! F U
Although I don't play WoW anymore, I took a look at the new Shadow Priest talent calc @wowhead, and it looks pretty nice. I think what you are missing is that most of the useless shadow talents have been buffed and retooled as well to provide added bonuses to things like MF, MB, & SW: D. The idea that you could refresh SW: P with just MF alone is awesome, one less timer to worry about. The other talents are also very useful, 30% reduction in SW: D damage is pretty huge, many S.Priests have to nerf their DPS cycle because healers would not heal through SW: D.
Shadow Priests have almost always been gimp in Arena PvP, I don't think that's going to change without nerfing the shadow tree's PvE elements. BG PvP on the other hand is a different story, I could consistently top the ratings in AB & EOTS on my S.Priest.
