The spoilers have slowed right down again, and it seems probable that there will be no more until the live stream tomorrow. This article will cover Princess Huhuran, Dark Arakkoa, and Shifter Zerus, bringing the total number of revealed cards to seventy one.

Princess Huhuran has great stats for a 5-drop with an ability, and it seems very likely that she'll see play in Standard because of this. The interesting part will be how much importance will put on her ability. While she is obviously a card you can build a deck around, it might be that she is used with just a few Deathrattles, rather than trying to force too much additional value. Cards like Savannah Highmane seem natural to try with her, while more greedy cards like Sylvanas Windrunner will require more thought and testing.

Dark Arakkoa is another card that has a decent vanilla style stat line and then a C'Thun buff. I'm still very much on the fence about how powerful C'Thun decks are going to end up being, but I'm yet to get the feeling that they're particularly overpowered. Other than buffing C'Thun, the lack of synergy in the cultists revealed so far seems to be an important downside.

Shifter Zerus is one of the more fun cards revealed in the set. It seems at first glance that it will not be very powerful. However, cards with such wide ranging random effects are difficult to theorycraft without testing, so it might be worth trying out in a deck that has cards sitting in hand for a long time, such as Handlock. @PlayHearthstone have confirmed it keeps changing while it is in your hand.

Shifter Zerus will transform at the beggining or at the end of your turn??

Judging from this answer, it's probably at the end of the turn:

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
