This build opens with a CC 1st into a fast +1 defense Thor push, hiting before the 6 minute mark with 4 Thors, 12 Marines to support, and SCVs to mass repair, .
The setup is 2 techlab factories and 1 reactored barrack off 2 bases.
BUILD ORDER 17CC 18RAX 19GAS 19GAS 23FACTORY1 1marines 3rd GAS 2nd marine
!!! 28 busy time !!! build ARMORY + SUPPLY DEPOT + FACTORY2 + REACTOR on rax, at the same time. build 2 TECHLABS in a row with the 1st FACTORY
Benchmark : @ 5:45 you will push with 4 thors 12 marines and 16 scv on auto repair -> TRICK -> right click them on a thor -> deselect 4 scvs -> right click on another thor -> repeat until each thor has 4 scvs
TRICKS Keep on macroing during the push (basic lol) Micro your marines behind your tanky thors Focus fire roaches with thors Thors destroy the eggs so don't forget to snipe them while morphing Beware of 2 bases roach nydus all-in that hit between 4:30 and 5:30 if you have scouted a fast Lair (between 2:50 and 3:20).

I wonder If this would work vs other races?

With the new nydus being invincible until it is done, I think that surrounding it with buildings, getting the scv surround and a getting some lucky unit spawns from the infrastructure would be the best way to defend it. Also, since you already have a tech lab on the factory, possibly making a tank if you scout the nydus before the attack actually comes.
Just theory-crafting here, very interesting build.

You mentioned that 2 base nydus is a threat to watch out for. Is there any particular way to react to that if you scout it early?
