Unless they've changed it, Master Shapeshifter is multiplicative with the 10% from Naturalist so it's effectively a 4.4% damage increase (The display still shows x114% since they don't show decimals in that window, this is easily verified)
iirc Master Shapeshifter is the highest boost to damage/threat over Imp Mangle as Maul is the #1 source of both. I ran a bunch of tests (keep in mind this was back in Naxx, but I would think better gear would only add to the advantage of Master Shapeshifter) and the conclusion I gathered was that: Improved Mangle + Master Shapeshifter > Master Shapeshifter only > Improved Mangle only.
Since you prefer having Infected Wounds, dropping Improved Mangle would be the 'next best thing'. Shredding Attacks is pretty lackluster for tanking, so dumping that is fine.
