So I was very, very bored one day, and decided to reimagine Overwatch heroes as Duelyst Cards. Here goes!
The idea is that Blood Surge represents a Hero’s Ultimate. Without further ado…
(PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL BLOOD SURGE EFFECTS ARE THIS TURN ONLY)
(No pixel spray, sorry :P)
Power up your minions with Ana, as her Nano-Boost is depicted as a Blood Surge ability that gives your friendly (albeit a random one) some nice stats. However, sometimes it might not land on the minion you want…(Booted Lucio = BOOSTIO!)
So the Blood Surge here represents his Tank Mode, which does more damage and has a farther rang as well, albeit at a slower firing speed. This is represented by the fact that he has Ranged and +2 Attack, but nothing like Celerity.
We all know the signature ult: “NERF THIS”, followed by a large flashing light, and then a massive explosion taking out all enemies caught in its blast radius. The Blood Surge effect deals damage to all enemies around it, but for balance it’s only 3 damage. Turns out, you CAN nerf this.
Unleash the Dragonblade with everyone’s favorite hero, Genji Shimada! As you can see, this effect is representative of his iconic ultimate, where he deals more damage and also moves faster. Ryujin no ken wo kurae!
The Blood Surge lets you unleash two dragons of fury, engulfing all enemies in a line in front of this minion, not unlike a Blast ability. Ryuu ga waga teki wo kurau!
Obviously a better Dust Wailer (since that card is pretty bad), the Blood Surge lets you rain justice from above. Activate her devastating missile barrage to lay waste to all your enemies!
The former Overwatch agent has you in his sights. Although the attack seems tiny, with buffs like Ana’s Blood Surge this can quickly become a devastating effect.
Although its Blood Surge effect is extremely powerful, this will only happen if you let her live for too long. Because of her fragility and no attack value, she is quite easily dealt with. Still, with Mercy on call, heroes never truly die!
Pass into the Iris with Zenyatta, who’s iconic Transcendence is represented by his Blood Surge: it allows all nearby units to recover to full Health, but this exposes you to Frenzy.
Time Bomb: a debuff that deals 3 damage to the minion (and all enemies around it) at the end of the enemy’s turn. (NOTE: This will keep happening until the unit dies or is dispelled.)
Pretty straightforwards, with an interesting twist on the Time Bomb. Here, the Time Bomb will keep on going until the enemy dies!
Bring down the hammer with Reindhart, whose HAMMER DOWN is translated into Duelyst with this minion’s Blood Surge. NOTE: Disable means that the enemy cannot move, attack nor counter-attack!
This one was a little trickier, since you can already see all the enemies. So, this Blood Surge is representative of her Widow’s Kiss rifle: By itself, a 2 damage submachine gun, but with Blood Surge, a devastating rifle. The fact that the ability does double the damage is obviously for buffs, but keep in mind that she is very fragile.
冻住！不许走！are often the last words heard by many enemies in Overwatch, and it will be the same in Duelyst. Here, her Blood Surge fully disables an enemy (read: Reindhart’s Disable), bringing your enemies to the butcher’s table!
A sinister laughter, muffled by a gas mask, followed by a million shards of broken metal. That’s right, Roadhog has gone Whole Hog! Here, the Blood Surge allows you to deal heavy damage as well as push them back, giving yourself some much needed space.
“Oh let’s break it down!” signifies that your friendly neighborhood DJ has dropped the beat. To represent Lucio’s powerful but short-lasting Sound Barrier, all friendly minions around this one gain +3 Health, but only for your turn.
Some people see death like a supernova, beautiful yet tragic. Death blossoms all around Reaper in Duelyst, as his ultimate is brought to the board. The effect is similar to D. Va’s, but Reaper is a lot more fragile; however, Reaper can be buffed, and therefore so can his Death Blossom…
Explosive Tire: Rush, Frenzy, 2/1.
Junkrat is here with his signature brand of mayhem, and he brings along his own jury-rigged explosive tire! This is represented by a fragile 2/1 tire that has Frenzy to act as the explosive part of the tire.
Turret: 2/3, cannot attack. Deal it’s attack damage to a random enemy at the end of each turn.
The Swedish dwarf, sorry, engineer, brings his own masterpiece to the battle: a fully autonomous turret! Meanwhile, he can also unleash his Molten Core, which gives him a buff, but more importantly buffs his turret. Keep in mind that this effect only lasts for your turn, and he reverts his normal stats when your turn ends.
This one was rather tough, but to show her Graviton Surge, I had a mini Daemonic Lure built into her Blood Surge. As you can see, the minion is costly but also huge, since its effect is just as powerful: displacement in a positioning game can massively disrupt the enemy.
Winston’s feeling angry, as his Blood Surge shows. He unleashes his primal rage, becoming much tankier and also knocking back all enemies hit.
An immensely powerful minion, albeit with very poor stats. Keep in mind the random enemy minion killed CAN be the enemy minion whose health is reduced to 0 by the High Noon, meaning the latter part CAN be wasted.
Symmetra teleports her allies in with her Teleporter, which for the sake of convenience has been built into her backpack. Help move your minions back onto the field!
EMP Activated! Dispel all your enemies with Sombra, the latest addition to Overwatch!
