Description

This Strategy performs best vs Stargate Openers. Otherwise I suggest a Zergling Ravager into Ling Bane Ravager Playstyle.

The Build kickstarts its economy early on with a fast but safe 3 Hatch Opener. It then follows it up with a Spore Queen Defense versus the Stargate play while mining as little Gas as possible to maximize mineral Income.

We then follow it up with a quick +1 melee into a Lair and Baneling Nest to increase the Strength of our midgame Ling Bane Hydra timing.

Once the Lair is done. The Build finalizies the saturation of all mineral lines, takes a 4th and a macro hatch and prepares for a big hydralisk push.

Once the push left our base we reinforce with lings and banelings as they travel fast across the map than Hydralisks.
