Josh "Thespian" Gatner The Aviax Cowboy is one of those miniatures that I really hoped would work out, but just didn’t. Its ability – Mindlock – can allow you to control your opponent’s miniatures at a spawn cost equal to the creature’s spawn cost.

In the end, this ability is a lot of fun to frustrate your opponent with, but hardly game changing. In the end, you have spent a heck of a lot of spawn for no long-term effect. Really, I could spend 13 spawn to take control of an opponents Unsated Ragedrake. Why would I do that though when that 13 spawn could be put to so much better use. Even if I had the nigh-unplayable Shard Troll, I would rather dump the 13 spawn into obliterating the same red dragon.

In the end, despite a cool sculpt, the Aviax Cowboy just hasn’t panned out and remains one of those minis that are relegated to the “play for fun” pile.

Top 5 figures to play with Aviax Cowboy: Blademiller, Citadel of Torture, Unwishing Well, Stormwatch Siren, and Bloodhawk Barag

Worst 5 Matchups: Anything with a little power.

Constructed: 1/5 – Doesn’t synergize with much of anything reliably.
Limited: 2/5 – A little better, but not my much.
Artwork: 3/5 – YEEE-HAW!!!

Dream On!
