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.

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

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
