[Disclaimer: This is a theoretical build. Good duelists will always have counters. Don't expect to win them all.]
The skills are not updated on this site. Defensive Rune stuns and Haunting Curse actually procs after 3.5 secs not 6 secs. The morph of Mage's Fury doesn't matter since it's a single target... none-the-less, it will hit really hard (as will all your shock abilities) as an Altmer Sorc with points into Elemental Expert.
High Burst Damage
The fight shouldn't last longer than a minute with this build. You're relying on high burst and ending the fight quick. (In most win cases you'll take them out within the first 15-20 seconds or so.)
Two stuns yes. You start on Bar 2 and have Boundless Storm, Power Surge and Defensive Rune running just before you start the duel. Engage with Clench followed by a Curse. Swap and wreak havoc. Defesive Rune will proc the next time their CC immunity drops from the Clench or if you miss them with your Clench (Defensive Rune can't be dodged or blocked), it will also protect you should you end up in a duel with a cloaking Nightblade. The Tinkerer's MEGA HIT will proc from Boundless Storm and from any other damage you do.
(Alternatively, you can swap in Lightning Flood for one of the other abilities. I know AoE's are not typical of duelists, but it works well against melee based duelists when you drop it on yourself and it hits at a whopping 2.6k per second! You'll be surprised how fast it takes out an opponent, not to mention gives you better chances to proc Tinkerer!)
I try not to use my ULTs unless my opponent does. Some do, some don't... be honorable.
Please be a good sport with your fellow duelists, win or lose. Enjoy!
