ANY THOUGHTS ON THE EGYPTIAN SCYTHS WITH THEIR 33PERCENT HP BONUS AS BEING A VIABLE MAIN FORCE SUPERUNIT COUPLED WITH THE PRIEST?

Send SCs with priests, but also add some long distance arrow fireing units, ele archers for example would fit in nicely. A st wouldn't hurt either in-case you are facing a massive army of ballistas/helepolis.
Sounds kinda' like a lot of units, however I belive in having a mixed army. That way the opponent(s) cann't easly fend me off by using one type of unit.

Scyths have very few weaknesses. The only unit that stands up to them are Elephants or a Ton of Horse Archers. If your opponent has them you need to build Decent walls and towers to back them up. If Horse Archers arent available, then you need to stay on top of his town with War Eles and CAs. Egyptian Scyths are nasty because of the priests that back them up IMO, taking out one of their few weaknesses, the War Elephant. These are just a few brief points, not too in depth.

Legions towers and cents also slaughter em. I haven't tested Scythes, but 1 fully upgraded cent can take down 9 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) fully upgraded chariots AND STILL SURVIVE.

Hoplites kill SC pretty well. Also Heavy Cavalary do.

Looks to me like these are going to be the ultimate cat killing unit. They have 184 hps, are fast speed, resistant to conversion (their biggest plus over elles) and cost just 40f & 60w. They didn't appear that good of a hand to hand unit to me at first until I thought about their cost. (Still wouldn't stick around to fight hops but hard to avoid it with Macedonia - they're a hard matchup for them.)
