He has one problem. He has no submerge ability unlike his undead counter parts and would unbalance multiplayer.
If you want him to appear in an era, play "Ageless Heroes" era.

I doubt that the deathknight would unbalance multiplayer (is level 3 after all) and if submerge is really was really a problem it could just be added (not a major change). I do however believe that Death Knights are intended to be unusual/campaign enemies and not common undead so to have them available as an advancement of a common undead unit makes little sense.

I believe Death Knight is OK although he has weak range attack but great melee :mrgreen: not to forget leadership skill :D

*sight*
death knights in default mp were already discussed:

http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=32701

which makes this topic invalid

If you want to use death knight as a leader in mp try extended era or EE undead faction from Ageless Heroes, if you're lucky someone said 'screw it' to balance and put it there
But in Age of Heroes, which is one of default eras, there's no place for him
