Analysis

Zuka's build is solid, but I felt like the expansions were a bit too delayed. This build halts probe production at 28 supply to get a much faster nexus without delaying the robo, along with faster sentries while maintaining stalker count. You can get 3 sentries instead of 2 if you want constant phoenix hallucinations. After the build completes, start stargates so you can get either carriers or tempests.

If the opponent is playing stalker/disruptor, Zuka recommends getting 2 stargates so you can lift the disruptors with phoenix.

Compared to Zuka's build: Later - 1st hallucination, 3rd stalker Faster - robo, 2nd & 3rd bases, charge, templar archives, 3rd-8th gateways Additional - 1 more stalker, so you can have 2 stalkers in each mineral line
