1HS with magicka DK

I see a lot magicka DK builds that use one hand & shield and am wondering what the benefit/purpose is. I'm a VR4 dunmer DK and have destruction staff and restoration staff maxed out. I've mostly used two inferno staves but sometimes use resto on my back bar. I'd like to level a new weapon and am considering 1HS. Looking at the skill line the only thing that jumps out to me is the gap closer. Not having one in my skill lines that seems like a good thing to have. Are there other good reasons i don't understand or see yet?

    DK's have no working gap closer so it's either that or a two hander. S/B gives two set bonus slots rather than 1 and we have block mitigation passives, and it costs less to block and we get more mitigation from it, especially in the warrior tree. Reverberating bash is pretty good as a heal debuff too. With -50% healing in PvP, any additional heal debuffing is pretty rough.
