I'm of a slightly different opinion.
I did give this a go in a fairly ridiculous game in which both sides of us were just trying things out.
Whilst I ultimately lost, running this fine gentleman (The Maleceptor, that is) in the middle of my line as a synapse / warp charge generator worked a treat.
Ridiculously expensive you say? Yes, but I was also running the Neural Node formation, and boy did my three Zoanthrope broods make up for it with the Maleceptor support.
So essentially I ran it where I usually run my warriors, and it seemed to work a treat. Can't see it working outside of it's formation though, and even then the points could reasonably be spent elsewhere. Avoid it's ridiculous psychic power like the plague, and maybe cast whatever else you roll for it (pray for catalyst).
The increased shadow in the warp range didn't come into play, but I'm hoping for a different take on that when Nid's get updated.
Side note: Sporefields are hilarious
