The Comprehensive Death Knight Core & Path of Arthas Preview

There’s a new Death Knight class and it has so many cards that we had to make a Preview just for its starting sets. So, before we get to the March of the Lich King preview next weekend, let’s dig deep into Death Knights to understand what they’re about.

We’ve assessed cards based on their potential strength and scored them accordingly from 1 to 4 based on the guidelines below.

4- Meta-defining, or an extremely powerful card we have great confidence will see play. Translation: Busted!

3- Very strong card that we’re confident will see play. Translation: Nice!

2- Decent, or niche card with potential to see play. Translation: Okay!

1- A card we don’t believe will see competitive play, for whatever reason. Translation: Meh!
