I came up with a decent StarCraft 2 build strategy for the Protoss race. It involves a whole lot of Oracles :)

Starcraft 2 HoTS Protoss Build: "Fouracle" May 8, 2014 5:34am UTC
UPDATE: I reworked this build so that the first Oracle starts warping in right around 5 minutes into the game. See down below for the updated build order:

Here's the [OLD] build order using the supply values:


9  - Pylon
11 - Chronoboost 2 Probes
12 - Gateway
   - Send probe out to opponent's 2nd expansion point
   - Chronoboost 2 Probes
13 - Assimilator (First Gas)
14 - Proxy Pylon near 2nd expansion point
   - Chronoboost 2 Probes
15 - Assimilator (Second Gas)
16 - Cybernetics Core
   - Chronoboost 2 Probes
18 - Zealot
20 - Probe
21 - Proxy Stargate at proxy Pylon
   - Mothership Core
23 - Pylon
   - 2 Probes
25 - Chronoboost Oracle #1
   - Warpgate Research
28 - Zealot
   - Pylon
30 - Chronoboost Oracle #2
   - Send Oracle #1 to kill enemy workers
   - Send Oracle #1 back to Stargate
   - Send Oracle #2 to kill enemy workers
   - ...

- Continue in this fashion until 4 Oracles have been sent to the enemy base.
- After the 4th Oracle has been queued to build, warp in 2 Void Rays.
- Regroup all 4 Oracles, build up some energy on the most recently sent one, then send all 4 as a group (along with Void Rays) to destroy the remaining enemy workers and structures.


Here's the *NEW* build order:

6/10 - probe
7/10 - probe
8/10 - probe
9/10 - assimilator (1)
9/10 - pylon
9/10 - probe, rally nexus to assimilator
10/10 - probe
11/18 - probe, chronoboost nexus
12/18 - gateway, send out probe scout
12/18 - probe, rally nexus back to minerals, chronoboost nexus
13/18 - probe
14/18 - probe, chronoboost nexus
15/18 - probe
16/18 - proxy pylon
