Death Knight (Dracul inspired):

SANGUINE: 15% health regen on pool, +1 mana per pool, chugging manapotions boosts it.
DIAMOND BODY (undead body?): 50% starting physical resistance, 75% max cap
DETERMINED: 30% bonus damage when below 50% health

A fighter that benefits a lot from staying on low health, with controlled regeneration capabilities, highly benefitting from (almost) all of Dracul's boons. Regenning via pools allows it to cast low-cost glyphs, and to keep it's health high enough to tank, and B2P allows the Champion to keep it's health on controlled (below 50%) levels.

EDIT: I'm actually having a lot of fun mix and matching... Expect a lot more during the day. Probably god-thematic custom classes. Love the idea of those.

Conduit (Mystera Annur inspired):
DRAGON BREATH: Fiery breath means normal attacks deal magical damage.
SPIRIT SWORD: Reaching conversion treshold drains mana and temporarily increases base damage (5+mana drained).
REFRESHMENT: Reaching conversion treshold regenerates 50% of your maximum mana.
(In this order.)

Thematic idea only. I have no clue how to actually leverage it.

POISONED BLADE: Starts with the APHEELSIK, gains 40% bonus damage to poisoned enemys. Starts with -20% bonus damage.
SAPPHIRELOCKS: Naturally poisonous strike, petrifies Enemys, starts with ENDISWALL glyph.
HOLY HANDS: Starts with HALPMEH glyph, gain 1 extra health per level from HALPMEH

Besides the fact that it has a crap-ton of free glyphs for conversion, it looks like an awesome regenfighter. Might need a compression seal or 2, tho.
I would probably switch HOLY HANDS for GOOD GOLLY (100% against undead) , if there are many undead.

On a side note, shouldn't ''gains 40% bonus damage to poisoned enemys '' rather be "gains 40% bonus damage against poisoned enemys" ?

Cursed One:
Hand to Hand: -2 base per level, -50% attack
Damned: No gods, 1 hp regen per tile always, exhausted when not at full health
Fragile (or whatever it's called): -5 hp per level, +40% attack.

A class with -2 base per level, 5 health per level and -10% attack on top of having the best two resources ruined (gods and blackspace). Good luck!
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.

My Glowing Guardian holy warrior class would have some set of these traits:
1)Scarred: no mana burn, poison, or curses (because GG auto heals them cuz he loves this guy)
2)Good Golly: +100% undead killing.
3)Good Health:+3hp/level This is either for GG or plant lady
4)(Magic) Spirit Sword: Normal Spirit sword(drain mana->attack on conversion level), but the attack deals magic damage instead.
5)Inner Focus:GG is the god most about conversion points.
Maybe Holy Hands too, but I'm not convinced.

Probably 1,2,and 4. I know 1 doesnt synergize well with GG, but THEME MAN!

Also I thought GG hated when you use items, but he never complained when I use Fire Heart.
