Description

Generic ZvP opening utilizing mid game ling bane hydra that can easily transition into lurker broodlord. The timings are a bit off but the build order itself is basically get things as you can afford them, it's meant to be a flexible build so if you follow it perfectly you are going to end up floating a lot.

Analysis

So the goal here is to play defensively and harass with lings to by yourself time to get your 3rd saturated. Once it's saturated the focus is delaying the protoss from saturating his 3rd until your +1 finishes. Other than a specific timing or defending a very specific timing I don't see a reason to get your evo's any sooner, you should be making lings and banes with your extra resources until hydras, the upgrades will help out hydras the most so getting upgrades before hydras are out will only do more damage to you when defending an early game timing.
