The Bloodbound spell is one of the core mechanics in Duelyst. While every deck tries to have some amount of synergy with its general’s BBS, this archetype looks to push it to the extreme with BBS recursion and Blood Surge minions for extra value. This idea came about as an excuse to play the sweet, slow but high-value epic Blood Surge cards introduced in Immortal Vanguard. The decks are mostly midrange with very powerful minions on the top of the curve.
General with stackable BBS
- Lillithe (and possibly Maehv)
- Vaath and Ragnora
- Faie and Kara
You need to have a general whose BBS can be cast for value multiple times in a turn.
Cryptographer is already a staple in many decks. Sanginuar, on the other hand, sees very little play but is quite good if you really want to BBS a lot: think of it as a big Manaforger. It also discounts your BBS all the way down to 0, even if it’s been modified (by Geomancer or the like).
- Bloodbound Mentor – the best card for this archetype, providing incredible value.
- Redsteel Minos
- Meltdown – not playable anymore, sadly. Rest In Peace you sweet prince.
Lyonar – Has great sustain to get you to the lategame (and no one plays around Decimate anymore). Decklist.
Songhai – an unique minion-based burn list. Decklist.
Vetruvian – A swarm deck with Gust as a burst finisher. Decklist.
Abyssian – Swarm elements with a really beefy topend. See decklist above.
Magmar – Mostly just a classic Smash Vaath list. Decklist.
Vanar – Faie offers good board control, while Kara lends herself to a swarm approach. Decklists: Faie, Kara.
