Zag Summons Build

So after a couple changes to her talents, particularly Corrosive Saliva, I have been testing a summoner build of zagara. This removes a little bit of her bully in the solo but gives her a much stronger team fight. If you still need to counter someone like malthael in lane, but want to have a strong teamfight against heavy frontline, this is a solid build. 
1
Corpse Feeders
Reduces the cooldown of Infested Drop by 3 seconds and Roachlings have 30% more Health.
Lower cooldown and roaches can survive basic aoe. Roaches are the bread and butter of this build post level 16
4
Medusa Blades
Basic Attacks deal 33% damage to three nearby targets.
All 3 of these talents are actually good. I recommend Medusa to allow you to push easier in lane. But Envenom can allow sneaky kills against lower health or lower sustain laners. Serrated should only be picked against heroes you can kite who you will get free autos into.
7
Bile Drop
Passive: Increase the impact radius of Infested Drop by 20%. Quest: After hitting 12 enemy Heroes with Infested Drop, an additional Roach is spawned.
If this quest completes you bump your roach dps by 50%.
10
Devouring Maw
Summon a Devouring Maw that devours enemies for 4 seconds. Devoured enemies cannot fight and take 94 damage per second. Usable on Unstoppable enemies.
Both ults work. Devouring maw is not bad to start fights, but don't use this during fights too often as it can save the enemies if used poorly. If you have to use it during fights, it's shorter range than it feels. But if you can flank and remove their backline, this build can kill the frontline before they get back.

Large maps or point control maps I would go Nydus.
13
Hydralisk Transfusion
Zagara is healed for 60% of the damage dealt by Hunter Killers' Basic Attacks to Heroes.
These talents are all okay, I just like hydralisk healing because it takes some pressure off of the healer and gives you a better 1v1 if needed.
16
Corrosive Saliva
When attacking Heroes, Hunter Killers and Roachlings deal additional damage equal to 1.75% of their maximum Health.
This build revolves around this talent. You can do upwards 1500 dps once you get this talent. Drop roaches off cooldown when prepping for a fight, when the fight starts throw hydralisk at whatever your team is attacking, roaches down anywhere and attack what your team is attacking.
20
Tyrant Maw
Devouring Maw deals 50% more damage and when you get a Takedown reduce its cooldown by 25 seconds.
A very situational tier. If you have lost a keep I recommend fury just to 1 shot the wave and move on. Because we use the ult as a pseudo cocoon or setup, the reset function isn't terrible important, but the extra damage is nice. Because your level 20 power spike isn't huge, I recommend you try to close out a game between 16 and 20 if possible. Look to take most of your fights before 20.
