Oh yeah, actually michael lurkers are an AWESOME strategy. Use it as much as you want, I assure you it will ALWAYS work beautifully.

Sample Battle:
Phase 1. Michael evolves lurkers and starts bunker hopping them towards my base. Meanwhile, I make a photon wall.
Phase 2. Michael evolves even more lurkers and surrounds his base with them while hopping his lurkers towards key choke points. Meanwhile, I spam carriers.
Phase 3. This would best be described in a comic drama:
Mykal's lurkers: OMG I found ur base! Hay guess what I'm in ur base killin ur doodz!
*I fly my carriers right over his lurker defense army*
"wuh? how come those yellow donut things can see me? why are all my little guys dying?"
*Carrier(s) has arrived (in michael's base)*
Lurkers defending michael's bases:
"Hey, did you hear something?"
"Nope."
"Where'd all our hives go?"
"Dunno lol"

Flying infested Terran command center. Its funny. Land it somewhere out of sight but close to enemy base. Set rally inside of enemy base. Hilarious.

you can always be annoying, in a standstill match use your queens right to broodling their units. Though that no longer applies in sc2.

zergling support is worthless . . . utterly worthless, they are built to be good at what they are commonly used for, mass rushing. which against in itself is most efficient against other zerg, then decent against protoss, then least effective against terran.

Don't get me wrong it still does alot of damage to each, just terran can lift off, and now in sc2 they can bring their scv's with em, +the barracks supply depot block up is plain crazy agaisnt zergling rush (when terran has higher ground it is super efficient).

not worth it, against upgraded units they soak up 1 shot, there is much more efficient things you can do then spend 25 mineral per shot that comes from the other team, also to have enough zerglings to do that you would have to cram so many in front of your hyrdas and such that the hydras wouldnt be able to hit the opponent. Also against flying units that doesn't do squat and against mutalisk mobs thats worthless.

yes, but against an incompetent opponent, and will mass attack the first thing to unburrow.
You could probably anti air devourers instead of hydralisks

no, scourge are a really convenient unit because you can easily adjust teh number of them you have for use against air and they will still be effective, if the opponent went heavy air you should use some ground to do mop up work, if they balanced out then you will need to get some technical advantage based on the inherent abilities of the units. If they have more ground then air, don't use a scourge swarm duh.

anti base you can try a mutalisk orgy, if the opponent has buildings packed together, which most often they do, you can get a lot of spread damage on it.

Ultralisks are good hitters if you can spare the resources.

Generic units can work if nothing else, like hyrdalisks or zerglings.

Guardians are over rated, you are a zerg in their base, whatever units you needed to kill must be long gone, or at another expansion. Guardians are more awesome for unit killing.

yes but they're slow, without excellent ambushing they won't be able to get in a hit, also while in egg, they like 10 armor and like 200 hp, thus they are very difficult to kill whilst evolving from mutalisks
