    I've played the theme force with Durst and can now give my thoughts:
    Reposition is sweet, but the lack of bodies makes it harder to protect your Choirs.
    The free support (well, except for choir) is great and I felt that I didn't have to down-size something to fit it all in.
    I found that free upkeeps on the first turn didn't affect Durst too much, but it was nice to have.

    Overall, I liked it.

    I get why people have durst on the theme, but I really don't find favor with it. IMO durst wants a few infantry around, too. Our true users of the theme will be severius(either), Tristan, amon, preznik, feora2, and certain malekus builds.

    The MIGHT also be room for a harbinger metal mountain theme with her martyring all the support, but I'm not quite down with that one.

    Boundless Charge uses focus though. Fill your opponent with complete dread that they have no chance killing Reznik2 on the bottom of 1/top of two because you're camping 7 focus (with a devout up his butt, naturally). I do agree with the eye lock strategy however. Your opponent should know that you fear no one at the very moment you hand over the turn.

    What Revenger? Heirophant should provide the extra range needed for chasten bolts.

    I've modified the list a little with some feedback from other locals though...

    Tristian2
    Heirophant (free)
    - Reckoner x2
    - Templar x2
    - Vanquisher
    - Redeemer

    Choir (min) x2
    Vassal
    Vassal (free)
    Covenant (free)
    Mechanik
    Wrack

    Specialists are 2x Indictor, Visgoth and another Mechanik. Swap in Indictors for spells, Visgoth for more shield guard and a mechanik to make up points.

    I think the revenger is nigh mandatory for the theme, actually. Do NOT underestimate the ability of a ten point light to screen with a 2" reach and the repulsor shield effect.

    I used a Durst because when the theme dropped, I already had a similar list almost ready to go.
    I can see this theme working with a plethora of casters: eSevvy, pSevvy or Feora3 on top of the ones you've mentioned. And Malekus with the right build.

    revenger is definitely not mandatory for any list. at 10 points its pretty grossly overcosted. thats as much as a heavy warjack.
