I'm wondering which tech you think is better. I've been playing with Set a lot against the computer to get better with him but I go back and forth between Anubis and Ptah. I like to use a lot of spearman as my main unit along with two other unit types to counter my opponent. Serpent Spear or Leather Frame Shield?

shield if they use archers a lot, spear if you wanna kill faster (not like u kill fast enough with 100 spears...)

I prefer the frame shield for raiding. Serpent spear is good in combination with Horus's techs, in fact you can get pretty decent stats maybe even eguivalent to a hoplite.

Ptah seesm like a better choice overall.

yeah Ptah seems to be a better choice in most cases because he is benefits both economy and military. The Shaduf improvement makes farms like 30% cheaper which turns out to be 47 gold. Also he has three techs that benefit each of your barracks units which is helpful if doing some kind of egyptian rush.

ptah all the way. he will give you hell better tecs, and although you dont get the practical anubites you can win over with all the ways you can combine vision and shifting sands to teleport a small army right into the centre of the enemys base right at the start or a load of siege towers at the end.

As Set, When facing Odin, Hades, Poseidon, Thor (sometimes), or Atlantean, I usually take Anubis. This is because you can use the cheap Anubites in packs of 2 or 3 to raid his economy (especially Hades'), and his Serpent Spear technology allows more damage to be done against their cavalry, because they are primarily cavalry civs.

Against Loki, I would take Ptah for the Scalloped Axe and for Wadjets against TA, and for Shifting Sands to move some Einherjar away from my base.

Zeus I would take Ptah for Scalloped Axe (against his hoplites), and shaduf so i can spam farms, and in turn spam infantry.

You should go ptah allt he time because he has all those attributes the anubis has too. The leather frame shield promotes raiding because spearmen have higher pierce armor.
Spearmen train fast and are cheap so they do just fine against equal numbers of cavalry. serpent spear is a small upgrade so really you should go anubis for a fast heroic to defend against raiders with his serpent god power.

Alternatively, play isis and use bast - nepthys

Really the only reason to go anubis is if you want to do some early classical raiding.
