I've been wondering what unit is everyone's favorite from the starcraft boardgame. Please say what it is and why it's your favorite unit.

My favorite all around unit is the Archon, it hits hard and is very versatile.

by category:

base unit: Marines cheap powerful and versatile

ground pounder: lurkers, these guys are devastating with ground splash and cloak.

caster: Dark Archon is by far the most powerful caster, maelstrom alone makes them amazing.

low lvl flyer: mutalisk, versatile and opens up the big zerg flyers too.

big flyer: battlecruiser, big beefy and yamato cannon doubles duty as a great marine card too.

Big flyer: The Carrier, a giant floating beehive of doom! Probably the favorite. Plus, their tech is great for any unit.

Small flyer: Wraiths, pretty nifty with their cloaking abilities.

Caster: Queen, very useful caster for the Zerg. Spawn broodling woo yay! Also, Ensnare is always useful, plus it's one of the Zergs few cards with detector.

Ground thingy: Vulture. Those spider mines; ouch! Plus, they don't have an annoying motorcycle-riding goatee-wearing douchebag attitude in the board game!

Second place ground thingy: Carnifex Ultralisk! These guys are just cool.

with plague(detect air/ground autosplash) and gamete meiosis.(recharge tech card).

close second are high templars with psistorm and kaydarin core.
third place is ghosts with nuke and lockdown.

Basic: Zergling, I love never running out of cards with a minimal attack of 5!

Ground: Reaver, I once killed an Archon together with a high templar and a base all with one reaver and two cards (he used hallucination).

Caster: Hands-down the Queen. Spawn Broodling everything!!

Flying: Wraith. Using Cloaking against random Scourge stealing CPs is great!

Top-tier Flying: Devourer, I have not seen it die as of yet :) Or NOT be able to kill something for that matter.
