Terran Mech with spider mines and turret pushing. In sc2 i just go blinkers or roaches, mutas are fun too.

I've never had a set strategy, those are what get you killed. Know your opponent and adapt to their playstyle and counter it appropriately. If you don't have that luxury, get scouts early on, and do the basic build until you figure out which way they are going, and then prepare your counter.
It's all about versatility and being unpredictable. ;D

Send your SCV/Drones/Probes to the enemy's base as soon as the game starts, destroy any combat buildings they were trying to produce, and then kill off their workers 1 by 1. Works on all noobs.

Infestor with vipers are good casters against that, and finish them off with some hydra/roaches or broodlords, depending how far into the game you are.

I main as Protoss. I usually wall-off my ramp with 2 pylons and a Warpgate with 1 Zealot acting as a "door" and a single photon cannon against any race (Zergling Rush, Cannon Rush, etc). I usually 4Gate, depending on what my scouting Probe finds, and if it fails I expand and transition into Mass Carriers with a Mothership (RIP Vortex), if opponent leaves me be. Adding a few HTs for Psi Storms is handy, too. I'm Silver in both 1v1 and 2v2.

If i'm Protoss i'll get a forge instead of a gateway, and attempt to build photon cannons in the opponents base.

I don't usually have a set strategy at the beginning of the game. I build counters based on what the enemy is building. Hence, I almost always scout first and attack later, I usually am not the first one to attempt a rush. My favorite things to do, though, are:
-Mass Chargelots + Immortal ground domination (ally takes care of all anti-air)
-Colossi + Chargelots + Phoenixes
-Archon spam, possibly with Chargelots to use up the leftover minerals

You could say I just really like Chargelots. I don't make them if the game doesn't seem to be suitable for them, but I like them.

New strat that works for me (Silver atm, was Gold a month ago):

PvP - (1) proxy 2/4gate, (2) 4gate, or (3) Cannon Rush [lol]
PvZ - (1) FFE w/ Chargelots + Voids or (2) 4gate w/ mostly Zealots
PvT - (1) Chargelots + Blink Stalkers + Colossi, (2) DT Rush & Drop, or (3) Mothership + Mass Carriers [only if I know he's turtling up on base and not rushing.

I either attempt to proxy pylon with DT's in the beginning of the game, and if that doesn't work I turtle up and pump out aircraft.
