Hi there everyone. I'm currently new to the whole Death Knight class and was wondering what the "best" Horde race is for a tanking Death Knight. I personally thought Undead would look great as one due to the whole dead look.. but I'm looking for racial bonuses and whatnot to the class. Thanks!

Tauren:aoe stun (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20549) & ~2.2k additional hitpoints (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20550)
Belf: neat aoe silence + 15 runic power (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=69179)
Orc: 1k additional attackpower for pulling/burst (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20572) & ~ 90 less expertise rating required while yielding axes or fists (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20574) & a -15% stun duration that might help on some trash pulls (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=20573) & ghul/army deals 5% more damage (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=54562)
Goblin: Blink (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=69070) & pulling tool (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=69041)
Troll: funniest dance animation
Undead: nothing you really couldn't do with lichborne instead (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=7744)

Both aoe stun and aoe silence are pretty strong for dungeons but won't help that much in raids. Unless you're chain gulping Noggenfogger i'd go with a race that you like optical wise and forget about the min/maxing part.

Go with what you like looking at. If you're into RP then go Goblin or Troll
Those are really fun.
