    Your best bet would be to use Defiller/Plague.... to weaken, and then Scourges to kill.

    First of all don't let them get that strong.
    but if you can't help it do what i'd do mass scourges just for the fun of watchin those suicidal units at work. And if you're lucky some of them might not get shot down.

    It's easier to use hydras, since generally, terran playing bc's aren't the least bit worried thier base will be attacked, mainly because they have an allie for support. Use Plague on the bc's, then send hydras in to finish the job.

    But, if you are feeling ill confident in the abilitys of 12-15 bcs, with 250-300 hp vs 80 hydras or so, then send in scourages to clean them out, then charge at thier base with hydras. BC's take too long to build, wraiths are ill equipped to battle a hydra, and they obviously based their offense on air, so they shouldn't be too complicated.

    Another good zerg strat oftenly used by me, is too make several Queen's early-hand, so you can ensnare, which greatly reduces speed of movment and firing, so you can then simple mass them with scourges or hydras.

    If your Terran, best to go lockdown, and/or Valk.

    If your Protoss, best to use corsair till thier weakened, then use statis field so you can kill them while thier frozen for several minutes.

    stasis doesn't work the same way as lockdown so you can't attack BCs in stasis. It's not like anyone makes BCs outside tvt unless you're playing on $$$$$ maps.

    Come ot think of it, I just realized how moronic and par my strategy is. Just kill the bc's, then them.

    If you're going to use hydras like Gemini said, then definitely get a couple defilers. You can use one to dark swarm, so the BC's can't even attack your hydras, and you could use one to plague, so the BC's go down to 1 HP in seconds. :)

    if your playing a money map which i am usally not you can use dev then scouge a few dev acids not only hurt the bcs but make them take more damage hence the need for less scourge if your not playing on a money map hydras plus the def if you can get it are your best bet
