This is a dirty ZvZ build Bly used against Nerchio in the WESG 2017 (2018 actually), and Nerchio wasn't ready for it at all. Since you go straight to a 2-base nydus play without much scouting, this is an all-in, and your goal is to at least kill a crucial amount of drones, but rather aim straight for the win. This build is risky because you delay your lings and don't get a spine or a baneling nest, so you need to watch the mini map for any early agression and adjust the build if necessary. You stop at 33 Drones (9 in gas) to only build units and you also want to hide your nydus network from overlords peeking in (i would suggest to build it in your natural behind your mineral line or between your bases) and block your "front door" with the evos, roach warren and queens. If a Zergling sneaks in at the start, you can "mindgame" your opponent by starting ling speed and cancelling it when the opponent has no vision anymore. Because you don't get ling speed and early lings, you'll have a slight eco advantage and therefore potentially more units to strike with when you get into his main, so when executed properly it's a very strong timing and a pretty cool build.
|18||1:05|| ||get 16 on minerals and rally additional drones to the gas|
|30||2:29|| ||before your zerglings on 30 supply just make drones and queens|
|32||2:38|| ||3rd queen + Lair|
|40||3:24|| ||you can get it 1-2 drones earlier or later but key is to get the buildings all at the same time at the front of your natural to block attacks|
|40||3:27|| ||and trick the opponent into thinking you're going for double upgrades|
|43||3:49|| ||@Lair go for Nydus Network and 1 additional gas|
|41||3:59|| ||build 3-4 overlords in advance to make space for the roaches|
|41||4:09|| ||inject and build non-stop roaches from here on and once the nydus is finished send your queens and roaches in and build 1 new queen at the natural|
|67||4:50|| ||nydus should be up in the opponents main base at ~4:50 min|
|71||5:00|| ||inject with your new queen and send it in the nydus to support your attack|
|71||5:10|| ||if you have more gas than minerals during your attack, you can morph wounded roaches into ravagers|

Thanks for putting this build up. Is this the replay it is from? If so, I can add in the times and link to the replay so it's easier to follow in-game https://lotv.spawningtool.com/35216/ . Would love to feature this build order if possible
