Unholy DKs don't need a strength buff, they need a boost to their Scourge Strike damage.

This. Specifically, they need a buff to the weapon damage portion of SS. also allowing the ghoul to benefit from our crit rating would go a long way toward fixing what's broken rather than applying yet another band aid buff.

I'll give that Unholy needs a damage buff; less understanding why you'd reject this one, aside from parroting Whitcomb (which may or may not be your motivation). A strength buff boosts the ghoul, diseases, Death Coil (but maybe not, since some of the stuff on wowhead indicates that Death Coil is getting a matching AP scaling nerf), auto attacks, festering strike, icy touch, plague strike, and yes, even scourge strike.Definitely agree that all permanent pets should inherit crit, though.As I pointed out before, there's no need to scale as well with every stat as every other spec. The idea (if imperfectly implemented) is that you get more damage from strength than frost does, while they get more from weapon DPS. Which means a weapon upgrade, while nice, means more to frost than unholy. But at the same time, a new just about anything else is a bigger deal to unholy than frost.
