    Smurfs are the best, but besides them....... zealots, early forces and can kill a bunch of stuff. But I am a noob, so it doesn't matter what I think.

    Muta + ling is good. But mutas only good when overlord hunting, scouting for new xpans & killing them, but never for huge assaults, only if you know you'll win.
    Missle turrets/spores/cannons deal full dmg to everything unless they have armor. So mutas will die easily, especially if you walk into a terran base full of M&M.

    I vote for Dark Archon. with a good army of dark archons just mind control an attacking force and they are screwed. It is always good if you get attacked by BC's

    Actually, mass mutas are very hard to counter for zerg. Nothing can stop it except more mutas and maybe some scourges. Thats why most players tend to tech to muta-ling in ZvZ. Late game ZvZ is usually won by the player with the most mutas. But i have found that if i get mutas too quickly in ZvZ and dont focus enough on massing i will get overrun by more lings than i can handle. A balanced muta-ling is very hard to master, and i would say that ZvZ is definitely the most stressing MU of all the races.

    Heh. Well everytime i play a zerg most of the time it's just 'all hydras' and occasionly they use Muta + ling. Even when they aren't vsing Zerg.
    Im starting to realise the crappiness of public games.

    Battle Cruisers are probally the best with just a 1 on 1 but spell casting works well on them

    Scourges cost too much and have bad AI to waste on mutas. Either get more mutas or Hydras + Darswarm/Plague.

    The last time I played I tried something new that was helpful. Rather than going 50/50 Mutalisk/Devourer I just got 3 when I found out my enemy was massing Mutas. He did what most n00bs do and attacked with all at 1 spot. I didn't use the Devs for their power, but just to slow them down which allowed my Muta's and Hydras to take advantage.

    Scourges are good vs zerg, but u need micro. If u spread out the scourges and make them attack one muta each then they will make them easier to kill with ur mutas. Also, if u can take out an overlord with 2 scourges it will in most cases be worth it because the setback of losing an overlord in ZvZ is fatal.

    I dont think there are any "most powerful" unit in the game. Any unit can be countered to make the game balanced. However, i think a single unit that can last longest is the Battlecruiser, this doesn't mean that its is the "most powerful" !!!!!.

    Yes it does. It deals alot of damage and when in number of 6 or more, they can kill alot. They have the most hp in the game. The 2nd highest armor. Besides larva & egg.
