Potential for 1x Pally 4x DKs
So I was sitting here just thinking of more wild teams when I started thinking about the potential behind 1x Pally 4x DKs as a team.
Could they do all non-heroic instances?
I think so, so much plate with the pally healing!
Could they do heroics?
DKs can tank, right? Iono, I never seem to see them tank anymore.
They can self heal, too!
Right? Something about blood seal?
Battlegrounds would be a blast!
Omg death grips galore! Tonnage of AOE, but to melee dps it would be facerolling over the IWT key right?
This one think could potentially do really well. DG your target into your field and IWT spam galore. DG their healer, then DG it again chain style.
What do you guys think?

Re: Potential for 1x Pally 4x DKs
The opposite team, 4x Ret + 1x DK (Deep Frost/Some Blood), is currently one of the top three arena teams overall (at least in the hands of Kromtor), and has cleared all five-man content (heroic and normal) by several players.
Ret's proc "Art of War", which gets 4x instant cast Flash of Light, plus the DK can "Rune Strike" for fairly decent healing.
You have some strong dps melee buffs, from the DK, Death Grip into the kill zone (or DG a 2nd unsuspecting victim into the existing kill zone, while already on one target), you have strong snares to keep things close to the pallies. Pallies get 4x Cleanse. Your team can Divine Sacrifice + Divine Shield (4x) for greatly reduced damage taken. And then proc their Wings for strong burst.
Looking at the opposite team, Blood spec gives DK's fairly decent sustained healing. If one was your tank (probably Frost or dual-spec'd to include Frost for Pve), then you'd have three DK's with deep Blood specs, which includes the group Rune Strike heal.
I really do not like a Paladin as a multibox healer, primarily for the lack of an AoE group heal, but also for the lack of mobility while healing. Still, DK's might not need a lot of healing, so this might be a non-factor. A Paladin is a superb one-target healer, probably second only to a Disc Priest, so keeping one target up through almost anything will probably work out well. And if you arena, they are the hardest healer to kill.
I would assume you'd be able to do any heroic, because of the passive blood heals on your DPS, along with only needing to really concentrate on two toons with the healer (tank + healer).
The DPS might not be optimal, but it should be more then adequate. The only thing I'd worry about, is having everyone in melee, against some nasty point blank attacks from various bosses and needing multiple toons healed at once. The Pally will have serious issues with this. 4x Ret, getting Art of War procs on almost every crit hit, can Self Heal on one button or 4x focus heal on another.
