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:

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
