Where do I go to see how many cards/what cards are left to add in EMN and an estimation of the time left until those cards are added on the site? It's very frustrating to build decks and then have to wait an unknown amount of time for all the cards to be added when a certain group of people prefer to do it all themselves. I feel unable to assist in something I can't go without.
Maybe this is not the right way of voicing my frustration, but whatever, let's focus on the solution rather than personal feelings hurt or defense of the current (inadequate) system.
You can get to a spoiler view of all of the cards added in EMN by clicking the EMN link at the top of the page. It's third from the left after Deck Builder and Cards.
While I agree that the card addition system could be streamlined, it's also imperative that those involved actually pay attention to what they're doing. Otherwise we end up with Grier Reach Sanitarium and Geier Reach Sanitarium or other issues of the sort like the Lazav, Dimir Mastermind art mix-up.
I think there aught to be a list of the submitted-but-not-approved so that users can add cards without the fear of creating duplicates. Also limiting the users that can add cards to a select group might help, but retain the ability for any upgraded user to fix mistakes as they're bound to happen (but hopefully less so with a dedicated group).
I respect that this is a community-driven database, but some people can't be bothered to spend an extra minute and check their work.

For a second I thought you were asking what was left to be spoiled. That lead me me to think...wait, what rock has this person been under? Then I took a moment to re-read it, use my English skills and I got it.
As for the coding time, it just takes a while sometimes. Especially with this new set, there are some mechanics that are going to be new coding problems/challenges for the admins of the site. Just have a little patience, and use "proxies" in your decks until they are fully coded into the site. It will be done, eventually.

I know it doesn't answer all of your question, but you can see all the EMN cards so far here.
I'm sure the Meld cards might be tricky, but when you get a spare moment (har!), I'd really appreciate it if you could connect the remaining Werewolves to their back faces:
- Conduit of Storms → Conduit of Emrakul
- Shrill Howler → Howling Chorus
- Smoldering Werewolf → Erupting Dreadwolf
- Tangleclaw Werewolf → Fibrous Entangler
- Ulrich of the Krallenhorde → Ulrich, Uncontested Alpha
Thinking about the Meld cards, maybe you could just connect the front and back faces too. We know they don't actually Transform, but it would be a fine work-around.
