Strategy Today! - Mutalisk Magic Box



This is a strategy that I learned from watching a couple videos and reading about it on another blog. This is a zerg strategy for mutalisk micro called the "magic box". In this strategy, you will be able to use mutalisks effectively to avoid enemies with large splash damage like thors. This is a good idea to think about and remember when fighting against a tech-heavy terran player.

The magic box is the formation that the mutalisks stay in when they are not bunched up. In order to execute the magic box, you simply tell your mutalisks to move together underneath them. They should then bunch up and in the subsequent 2-3 seconds, spread apart. This spread formation is the magic box. It helps significantly against splash damage attackers, as can be seen in the video above. It is a different way of using mutalisks than pushing them together in a tight group for one attack. As you can see in the video it is extremely effective. Enjoy!
