Well, first off I advice doing what you like the most!

Actually, blood deathknights, protection warriors/paladins all fair well, they're all very good tanks that have all seen the mythic scene. I play brewmaster monk myself, which is also very very strong, however takes some time to get used to, by far the most fun tank in my opinion.

All of these are performing amazingly well. I would recommend blood dk as they are by far the most "self sufficient" tank and have a lot of their survivability based on personal play. They also tend to do impressive dps for a tank, especially AOE.

 

Paladin would be my second choice due to their "GCD capped" playstyle and raid utility. Protadin is my favorite tank and once you get your HFC tier and class trinket the self healing and damage is incredible. It has a steeper learning curve than blood and is a bit more finicky with cooldowns but the raid utility (hands) and healing it pumps out (holy prism is amazing on progression) is worth the slightly lower dps. Once you get HFC tier and class trinket you start to feel like a powerhouse of healing and can the previous version of HFC into a joke. 

 

Ignore the talent recommendations for protadin until you get enough haste/gear. Take Divine purpose and empowered seals and maintain the haste buff from seal of ret as a tank. Focus on decent/high uptime of shield and really only use word of glory if you drop low (40% or so) as it will full heal you and then some with 5 stacks. Once you get a comfortable amount of haste go holy shield for survivability /passiveness or seraphim for dps.

 

I have little experience with warrior tanking.

 

My advice is to read up on raid content using icy-veins and fatboss guides (youtube them) then use tanaan / BRF to get gear. You should have no problem getting HFC groups as a tank around 690-700ilv and once you have your 4 set try pugging normal archi untill you get the trinket. Archi is a joke as tank. After that heroic HFC should be a breeze. This applies to pally more than DK. DK tier is pretty worthless.
