Bring back old Soul Reaper

Death Knight
Legion one or even the WoD one.

The new one is boring
An execute could add flavor and reinforce the "soul-stealing runeblade" class fantasy
Execute that fills up our Runic power would fit it even more!
DK doesn't need a execute or rp regen tools. Now Runes on the other hand..

Also OUR runeblades dont steal souls that was inherent to frostmourne.

Themematically speaking an execute would fit the class but Blizzard decided to remove them from all classes not named Warrior and made the ones that did remain talents.

thematically we don't need a big hitting spell like warriors, but a change in playstyle/rotation during the fight would be a good thing.

IMO this could be solved by changing the current live Soul Reaper to this:

make it baseline and remove the rune regen aspect, put MoP Blood Tap in its place as a talent.

then modify the live spell with the following: when soul reaper is cast on a target with 45% or less health, its cooldown is reduced to 8 seconds and the 10% haste buff is triggered.

instead of just being a big hit like warrior's execute, this would ramp up our DPS sub 45% by adding 10% haste and another dot to maintain.
