I have had a chance to get a couple of ICC runs in on my Shadow priests post nurf and have had no issues with mana as long as I keep my shadow fiend on cooldown. It is also a pretty nice damage boost as it accounted for 6.8% of my total damage done last run.Not sure if its just me or is mind searnowthe no cast list for multi trash mobs? It seems I do much better multi dotting mobs and then switching to focus fire on the marked targets.Single target fights we do well and on motion fights we also perform well. It appears the shadowy apperitions damage scale accordingly with motion. We are still on the low end for caster damage however and we will see how we fair against overall dps after the recently announced increase to hunters damage.

it's pretty clear these people with mana issues are the kind of people who save their cooldowns until they're at like 25% mana.use your shadowfiend early people. that's what sin and punishment is for. I spam multidot on heroic deathwhisper 25, never cast dispersion, and am always at 75% mana or more.I'm only wearing icc25 level gear with a few heroic pieces. even in icc10 gear, proper cooldown management should keep you above 50% mana at all times.

Just to add a note to the whole Mind Sear being a no-go for AoE, when I was in ICC-10 last week (And amazed at the huge buffs I recieved this patch, up from being a 6k DPS scrub to 10k DPS top of the chart) I found that hitting all my targets with SW:P and running around like an idiot did ALOT more damage then Mind sear. On the 5 training dummies in Silvermoon I can hit 10k DPS with this method and annoy others whlie doing so. I

Multi-dotting the mobs is much better for DPS and hell on your mana. However, I gave up on topping the DPS meters on trash and found something far, far more fun. Applying SW:P on all the mobs and running around in circles spawning an army of shadow clones to blow up on the trash. It does decent DPS and is the most fun I've had killing trash packs ever in this game. Clearly someone at Blizzard has been watching their fair share of Naruto.
