Which is more of a "Magic Knight"

Death Knight or Enchance Shaman?

Paladin and DK. Enhance Shaman isn't a knight in the least. They're more of a battle-mage than anything.

Paladin for the light magic. DK for necromantic Knight. There isn't a straight Magic Knight, though. Paladin is the closest, if their spell animations were arcane instead of Holy, they'd already be perfect, come to think.

A primarly melee class that uses magic for support.

I think paladin fits that pretty well

Well one uses magic the other is a knight. Neither are both strictly speaking. Paladin is closest to the concept I think you are going for though.

Uh..DK and Paladin both fit this niche. They are both melee that use spells. Paladin more-so as they have a Healing tree.

Well both of those (along with Paladin) fit that description well.

Death Knights and Paladins fit the "knight" profile, plate-wearing badasses swinging giant weapons. Paladins use holy "magic" and DKs use necromancy-type magic.

Enhance Shamans are closer to a traditional "magic" class (fire and lightning and asplosions) but are closer in fighting style to an agile rogue-like fighter than a heavily-armored knight. Enhance Shamans are kinda like rogues who throw lightning.

I'd say DK's. I always interpreted as 'magic' knights being synonymous with 'Runic' knights, ie knights that wield a large portion of their magic through magic weapons, absorbing and redirecting spells away from them.

DK's fill this role well with runic weapons, forging, and a lot of their spells are themed with deflecting magic (AMS, Dark Sim, AMZ)
