Terran Vs Protoss

Marine + Ghost bio push
10 supply
12 barrack
13 refinery
15 orbital
16 supply
20 barrack
21 tech lab
21 ghost acadamy
21 scouting reaper
22 second refinery
22 bunker
-reactor when second barracks is done
-pump out 1 ghosts whenever you have the gas
and marines whenever you dont
-when you have enough, throw down a factory
-then second ghost with next 100 gas
then a reactored starport and only have 2 ghosts max building up energy for emp
38 stim followed by combat followed by +1 marine attack upgrade
-Attack when you have stim/combat and +1 upgrades with 3 medivacs up
emp the immortals,zealots,sentries,stalkers,sentries in that order

Becareful of dt's, use that scouting reaper effectively

Transition to to thors tanking for your ball is 1 idea
or completely changing to mech and switching tech labs with factories into seige tanks and thors

Key points to this strategy

  • If he traps you in your base, do a 1 medivac drop full of marines
  • Emp is everything in this build
  • Kite!
  • Get your emp's off early
  • You want to get the zealots off your tail first
  • This could be a 1 base or a 2 base build and branch off into more teched units if you decide to get a second
  • 1 cycle of warp gates is not enough to kill your full medivac, so use that to your advantage
  • The average time for collosi to come out is approximately 10:30 give or take, so its an ideal time to hit before then
Why is this strategy good?
You have the advantage of home base, so if his attack is too strong, you are able to pull scv's while he cant utilize his sentries to the fullest while you have the upper ground if the protoss decides to attack. Marine balls + emp and medivacs rape any gateway unit and immortals.

Weaknesses: Templar storms, and Collosus. You must emp the templars and mass vikings the collosi, or your marine army is worthless.  They will be a nightmare if you dont get rid of them before the marine battle and confrontation. At no cost if they have those 2 units, you should ever engage your units.

Terran Vs Terran (effective now due to high demand in blue flame helion play)

Reaper harass to bio ball
10 supply
12 barrack
13 refinery
-build 1 marine, then tech lab
15 orbital
15 barrack, then build reaper/scv
17 supply
tech lab, scv
- drop a second refinery when your 3rd reaper is done
-keep pumping out reapers and scv nonstop until you get 3-4 reapers
grab xel naga towers and make sure they dont see your reapers come from the back and harass scv line
- after your 3-4th reaper, nonstop build marauders and scvs and dont get supply blocked
- research concussive right when you get your first marauder out
- and research stim fairly early as well
- drop down a third barracks when you have a good amount of money supply to keep pumping out marauders and add a reactor
- drop a engineering bay and start upgrading when you have a good amount of mineral reserve and nonstop pump
- build a turret if you see if your opponent has a starport

Key points to this strategy 
  • Make sure not to supply block yourself
  • non stop pumping marines and marauders after your 3-4 reapers
  • if your money is getting out of control, throw down a command center and expand( but it shouldnt if you continuously make marauders marines upgrades and scvs
  • be sure to own the xel naga towers
  • if you can get a plentiful amount of scvs in your reaper harass, then the game is most likely yours
  • if your opponent gets banshees, get some turrets and COMBAT SHIELD with stim
  • make sure to stim move and attack move and attack
  • this strategy is a very MOBILE and HEAVY VISION control strategy and very very effective. if your attack fails, dont fret and try again
  • If your attack fails like my attack did in the replay at the bottom, get dropships and drop on their tanks (very good exmaple in my replay)
  • Marauders are really effective against tanks and you should always stim and focus them down first
  • then shoot and run marines, this will you will take minimal damage.
  • http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays/163242-1v1-terran-backwater-gulch
  • ^ that is a very good example of if your attack fails
  • while this replay is how it should look like following through your reaper and finish with just marauders: http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays/163247-1v1-terran-metalopolis

Transition(optional) after you have your 4 reapers out and a couple of marauders, expand and use your reapers to keep his units inside his base (Very effective)

Why this strategy is good?
Because of the mobility of marauders. You have control of the whole map and able to attack whenever. This strategy is good against helion builds and tank builds and mediocre against banshee builds but the combat shield you will put up a good fight against banshees and you could always pump out vikings from your starport. Even if your attack fails, this is not an all in and one of my favorite strategies. Marauders are REALLY effective against tanks can out micro marines. Good luck! watch the replay ive attatched

Weaknesses: The helion to banshee build because of the so little anti air in the beginning and the MarineKingPrime Marine build is pretty rough against this strategy

Terran Versus Zerg

Teched Marine + tanks
10 supply
12 barrack
14 barrack
15 orbital
18 refinery
marines once barracks are done
21 2nd refinery
24 supply
25 barrack
28 barrack
keep pumping marines and scvs without supply block
35 2 tech labs
stim and combat when done
Move out at 8 minutes, that should be when your combat and stim are finished
Also expand when u move out at 8 minutes
67 factory
then another factory when you have enough money 
and 5 more barracks with no addons
2 engineering bays for upgrades
get 2 tech labs for factory pump out seige
build bunkers incase of baneling bust and spread out and micro marines not in a bunch
attack when you have an abundance of tanks and couple of reactor start port dropships (just 1 reactor starport)
take a third and make it a planetary

keep pumping out marines and scvs

Key notes to this strategy
  • Abuse your marines, dropping on expansions and not letting him expand
  • Do not bundle your marines for banelings always micro them
  • run behind tanks when he rushes you
  • Dont get caught without seige mode
  • move out slowly and keep double pronging dropship marines
  • Abuse your mobility
  • focus banelings with your seige tanks
  • Watch this replay, its very important **
  • build 2-4 bunkers for protection and be warry for mutas
  • Replay : http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays/162254-1v1-terran-zerg-blistering-sands
Why is this strategy good?
Because the power of a marine ball and the stim speed over the banelings while moving and attacking(kiting)
with the correct micro, this strategy is unstoppable if timed correctly. Good luck guys and remember to upgrade

Weaknesses: Burrowed banelings and if the creep is tumors have taken the majority of the map. Infestors are a big problem and so are broodlords at certain positions. So you must grab key point areas to move out and set up camp
