I’m extremely happy with this investment. I loved Bioshock Infinite, and the Boys of Silence were one of the most interesting (and my most favorite, excluding the handyman) enemies in the game. Very interesting concept and design. The figure itself is well made and feels nice in the hand when you’re posing him or playing with him or whatever you may do when you pick your figures up. This is my first NECA figure so I can’t really compare it to any other NECAs. I’m just very impressed with the overall sculpt, my only complaints being the screw in the back of the head and the hip joints.
Articulation: The head is on a balljoint, the arms swivel 360 degrees and move up and down at the armpit. The elbows have the same joint as the arms, and the hands are on balljoints. There is a waist swivel that lets him bend and rock slightly at the waist, along with turning 360. He has the dreaded Y joint that gives him gaping slots in his crotch when the legs are posed, but otherwise kicks out and up just fine. His knees bend, but are heavily restricted by the pants. His feet rock very slightly in all directions.

And his mouth opens! This works by turning his “ears”.

Okay it’s like 6 am and I haven’t slept, and I was thinking about Magic because I’m obsessed, and I came up with this B/U Phenax Mill deck. It comes out to a little over 35 dollars if you pay retail for everything, but I have a lot of these cards in my binder. It would still cost me around 22 to build. (minus lands because all magic players should have like a billion of every land) and I thought it might be pretty fun to play. I’m not wanting to play this deck for competitive purpose, just me and friends and my play group.

The basic idea is to get out a blocker as soon as you can to start stalling. Depending on when you get him, You can use Tezzy to search out your millstones, or if you get enough counters, you can pick out Guardian (but that could take a while). Your instants and sorceries will keep your opponent’s game stagnant, with lots of counterspelling and discarding going on. All the stall is leading up to Phenax coming into play, and hopefully, your opponent milling 15+ cards per turn.

I know this could be a lot better, but I just wanted to put together a fun, cheap little experiment. 

So opinions would be cool. (Remember this is meant to stay on the cheaper end of the spectrum)

And is there a better alternative to duress?

Look at Jace. He’s pretty control no matter what variation of his card you get. Lots of drawing for you and discarding for your opponent. Look at Chandra. She’s always burn oriented. Garruk makes tokens and counters, generally buffs your monsters. Liliana screws with the graveyard. But I’m pretty sure at this point Wizards is like “Hey guys I have a cool idea for this new planeswalker. He has these three cool skills that are pretty unique.” And the. The rest of the team is like, “Yeah that is pretty unique. Just change one of his skills to make him gain life and we’ll print a new Ajani.

Like this guy has a card to do almost anything you want him to.
