Description

The Build uses a Pool First Opener to be save versus Reapers. It is followed up by a +1 Carapace versus 16 Marine Drops. Versus Factory Openers, this build is not ideal, go for 2 base Mutalisk instead.

Once the first Infestors are out you are free to drone up your 3rd and play defensive. Try to shutdown Drops with Queens, Infestors and Lings. Get your hive as quickly as possible.

Against heavy Liberator use build a spire or roach warren. You need something to kill those.

Analysis

The early 16 Marines are shutdown fairly easily by Ling Queen with +1 carapace. The counter drop at the same time is able to do siginificant damage and delay the terran drop as he will have no units at home.

Infestors work well as long as you have enough units to clean up your opponent. Be careful versus heavy widowmine usage her.

Once the Ultralisk are out build a spire to deal with enemy Liberators / finish off drops.
