***

Much quicker casting for abou the same DPS, lasts longer, slows the mob 15% better ... but can get resisted easier .. assuming -20 magic is worse than 0 magic

I'm guessing you would have to use a debuff before this spell?

Actually, it's reversed. -20 magic means the mob will make an MR check with a -20 modification. Thus, embracing should be more difficult to resist than cascading.

Of course, I'm an enc ;) so actual use of this spell may suggest otherwise, but that's what the numbers say.

(Taking a look at our level 59 unresistable mez( Rapture), you can see this in extreme application.
