Death Knight is a special class unique to a small set of uncollectible cards. It has no associated heroes, Hero Powers, or collectible cards; instead, Death Knight cards are generated by The Lich King, Arfus, and Transfer Student on the Knights of the Frozen Throne battlefield.


Main article: Death Knight

When the Lich King’s control of his death knights was broken, his former champions sought revenge for the horrors committed under his command. After their vengeance was won, the death knights found themselves without a cause and without a home. One by one they trickled into the land of the living in search of a new purpose. Frost sharpens their strikes; blood fortifies their bodies; and undeath allows them to erupt in unholy rage in the heat of battle. A thousand atrocities are etched in the eyes of every death knight, and foes who gaze into them too long will feel the warmth pulled from their bodies, replaced with cold steel.[1]
