You're notably below the soft expertise cap of 26, giving your targes 4% (total) to either dodge or parry your attacks. This adds up in lost threat, though it's not as glaring as a 'miss' when you use an ability.

Secondly, I suggest moving the point in Necrosis to Subversion, to maximize the damage & threat of Heart Strike. That change puts you into the same threat/dps talents I use in my Blood set up, and the only issues I have are AoE related. Single target isn't a problem unless DPS completely open up and ignore threat on the pull.

Finally, the usual question, do you have Rune Strike macro'ed adequately to your keybindings to ensure you're 'always' using it? Constantly triggering RS, along with keeping the needed 20 RP in your bar, is important to sustaining threat. A sample macro is:

#showtooltip Heart Strike
/cast Heart Strike
/cast Rune Strike
