I just found a Death Knight Deck that designed by a player, which is really fantastic, I mean his idea about DK is great, just looks like a real deck in Hearthstone.

Haven't gotten into Hearthstone yet, but been playing MtG and rly looking forward to Hearthstone.

 

And this deck would definitely be my go-to deck should it be lucky enough to be noticed and implemented at some point. Amazing work and great art.

That's really awesome what this guy did. I mean, you can debate on whether the Infection/Rot Mark mechanics will imbalance the game or not, but you can only admire the drawings the cards the guy came up with (descriptions + design).

On a more general note, I don't think we'll see a new class any time soon. 9 classes make for a game interface that is much easier to design (3x3 square), especially on mobile devices.

While the guy certainly did some great work, I can already tell that I was feeling frustrated by the Death Knight class. If I was going up against it, the constant disruptions to my minions with this Rot/Infection stuff will off-set so many combinations, it's probably going to make you rip your hair out.

 

Given the rather fast-paced and streamlined approach to gameplay that Blizzard seem to have adopted with Hearthstone, I don't think they'd like so much manipulation of the enemy's minions. Sure, the occasional Aldor Peacekeeper is cool to have played against you, but to constantly have your minions weakened would be pretty infuriating.

 

A lot of the cards are cool, and the theme seems to be quite solid for a Death Knight, but this core mechanic would need to be heavily reworked, I feel.

Yeah that's very well done and thought out.  Could use a little power tweakage, but I like it.

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.

      I played at the launch of legion for a good month or two, but i've recently come back. I picked up unholy and I really like it but I like to have some alts so i'm looking for another option.

      Now, to clarify my question. What I mean when I ask for complexity is perhaps not everyones definition. When I play my UDK, I understand the basics. Put on wounds, pop wounds=Damage. Obviously it's a lot deeper than that in terms of our kit but thats the general gist. When I play UDK, I feel as if I play it more i'll get better. There's some RNG, and lots of varying situations as to what button I need to press next to squeeze out the most dps.

      That's the kind of thing I crave. And i'm curious what other classes have this type of playstyle in the same or varying degrees. I know for a fact feral is in this camp, and if i'd guess i'd say it's the most complex class in legion at the moment. The problem is I don't really like Feral's flavor. I tried Arms warrior but my problem with it was i'd colossus smash...and then just hit the guy. It never really seemed to change and that got on my nerves a little, despite me loving the flavor. 

      To summarize, what classes do you guys thing have the deepest pool of choices, the most you can wring out of them by practice and mastery of them. Whether that be through best rotation or maybe even a legendary or two that mix it up for them. Thanks in advance!

      Hey guys, im about to play Wow again after a half year break and i want to start as Warrior or as Death Knight and i cant decide between both.
      I pretty much know how they work but my question is : which works better/more simple in Mythic+ and eventually heroic raiding (im not interested in mythic ToS).
