It also adds The Lich King as a legendary minion. This marks Arthas Menethil’s first appearance in a card game, as announced today. The Lich King expansion this coming March will finally add the Death Knight as a playable class, with Arthas being the default hero. Yes, it makes sense. Especially considering the beloved Knights of the Frozen Throne.

And although the creep of power would make Frost Lich Jaina probably not as strong as it used to be. I think we’re going to be amazed in terms of how this might work together. with our modern collection Here are 20 of the most eye-catching Knights of the Frozen cards.
