Flying and Vigilance coupled with Trample (from Rancor) and the exiling effect which targests any permanent will make this guy very, very annoying. He may be the sleeper Commander of the set.

Armadillo Cloak seems like the obvious choice, though Eldrazi Con***ion is the truly hilarious one.

The mana cost is actually part of the charm of this guy for me. For some reason, I just really love huge, oppressive mana costs like the ones on any of the Ultimatums or the one on Progenitus.

Right now I'm trying to pick between this guy and Uril, the Miststalker for a mainly G/W aura-based EDH deck. On the one hand, Uril is really strong with auras, protects himself, and opens me up to a third color. On the other hand, Krond is better flavorwise as a commander, his mana cost is really cool, and I think he'd generally be more fun to play. I'm thinking I'll probably go with Krond on this one.

Could be a fun EDH general on his own. I plan on using him in my Uril as a supplement.

The only thing I wish about this guy was that he said nonland permanent, and said may, so that if you couldn't be even more of a jerk with him than you already would be (White and Green being able to protect him pretty well through shroud/hexproof effects and flicker effects) but wouldn't have to ever choose between attacking and not having to target your own stuff.

Players who love enchantments/auras have some good options for generals; this guy, Zur the Enchanter, Bruna, Light of Alabaster, Hanna, Ship's Navigator, and Uril, the Mistalker (Krond would be good in Uril, too, if your mana fixing is decent enough). Am I missing anyone? I like that Wizards is supporting that deck archetype and allowing multiple decks to run the same theme without feeling too similar.

Things people might not think of

Ghostly Possession, not perfect but protects him with a cheap aura

otherwise Umbra Mystic, Sterling Grove, Femeref Enchantress

Aspect of Mongoose and Favorable Destiny Gives him the protection he needs while enchanting him. Especially Aspect saves you the potential card disadvantage.

NozzDogg, Lightning Greaves does not make auras drop off. Shroud merely prevents him from being the target of new auras as they're cast. That's the only restriction, though. If a Pacifism comes into play via an Academy Rector or Zur the Enchanter, the Pacifism can come into play attached to the shrouded creature.

Protection does make auras fall off, though, unless the aura specifies otherwise.

Krond the Dawn-Clad Van Damme

He's pretty good in EDH, stick an aura on this sucker and go to town nuking whatever you want.

Argentum Armor, only with the Aura downsides

As far as "sleeper general" there are only four new legendaries in the planechase precons. Thromok is a worse (but acceptable card in) Ulasht EDH, Krond is a colored Argentum Armor, Maelstrom Wanderer is a .... a something and Vela is a combo-tastic anti boardwiper (ANY boardwipe). Vela is going to be the strong one here, no doubt about it.

I want more about his and vela's storylines, though. Both seem poorly worded to me.
