Protoss Phoenix Micro - Post Patch 11

In Patch 11the the Phoenix received a nice upgrade allowing it to attack on the move. This was a much needed buff due to the Phoenix’s lack of power was unable to stand alone toe to toe with many other air units. Blizzard also released in their Situation Report the reasoning behind the new change.

This is a huge change that allows a Phoenix to dance around Mutalisks and other air units and attack them while moving. Phoenix always did hard-counter Mutalisks, but now even a very small number of Phoenix can challenge a very large number of Mutalisks so long as they are willing to attack and move away. Use your Phoenix to keep out of the Mutalisk attack range while firing yourself and you can do a lot of damage to a pack of Mutalisks.

This change will help give Protoss an edge against Zerg when they go Mutalisks, below are a couple videos which show how you can micro the Phoenix against other air units to help give you advantage in the game.
