Just get Lysithea to kill him using Dark Spikes T

Duster 2

I've been able to beat Death Knight by using monk skill Draw Back. Had two units with this skill and just had everyone unload they Gambit on him then draw them back before the end on the the turn. Kept rotating until he's dead.

Stryker-Evol 1

Alternatively, just beat the map as normally. But before defeating the last enemy, use a thief to steal the seal and quickly end the chapter before the Death Knight attacks your thief.
