Discord is best on tanks, Bastion, Mercy, Pharah and Tracer.

It is best to avoid Widowmaker, Ana, Hanzo, Mei and Soldier all-together.

Hence, you have the characters that Zenyatta counters best, and his best counters.

Zenyatta is the high-skill support.

While he can't heal as well as Mercy, his damage is substantial, accurate and bordering on frightening when coupled with Orb of Discord. Almost every tank will hate having Orb of Discord's damage bonus attached to them, and flankers like Tracer will be annoyed that they lose the element of surprise. Keep in mind that only Zenyatta can see the marked character when hiding, so he'll have to communicate that information to his teammates.

However, with the lowest HP of all heroes, Zenyatta will die instantly to most any damage-dealing hero. Avoiding being sniped by Hanzo or Widowmaker is key to his gameplay. His ult can completely invalidate many of the most powerful abilities in the game, and should be used reactively.

Because of all of this, his success is dependent on the technical ability and decision making of the person playing him. Played well, he can shut down half the cast. Played poorly, he'll be far more useless than any Mercy.
