You can only use the 1st and 2nd effect of this card’s name each once per turn.
(1) During your Main Phase: You can send 1 Zombie monster from your hand or Deck to the GY.
(2) If this card becomes banished: You can banish 1 Zombie monster from your GY; Special Summon this card, but place it on the bottom of the Deck when it leaves the field.

Reading from Ness’s Script Notes:

Regarding the name, 霊道士 would literally be a Taoist spiritual master, but it is also 1 character short to being the Japanese name of the Hong Kong movie 殭屍先生 (jp: 霊幻道士, en: Mr. Vampire), a popular jiangshi movie. “Changshi” is how we’re localizing the name, which seems to be a middle ground between “jiangshi”, the Japanese word for it (kyonshii), and probably even the name of the main character of the movie, Master Kau (Master Chen in the jp version).
