Which unit or combination of units is best to raid with when advancing with Ptah? Anubis? Bast?

In classical, Egypt really isn't the best raiding group. Once in heroic they have one of the best raiding untis in the game though, the Chariot Archer. But if you want to stay in classical, then i would go with a anubite raid which can be very affective. just get your free anubite and built another and you have a pretty decent raiding part. just pull em back when there hurt and heal with a priest.

If you give a man a match, he will be warm for an hour. If you set a man on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life.

In heroic, you can use a combo of roc/croc. With some siege towers. Then send a couple of CAs to raid their countryside. For a few pops you can cause major havoc. Destroying buildigns and maybe Tcs. If you do this correctly with camels, CAs, and roc/croc/siege towers, it's gg against an atty.

In archiac, you can try priest/pharoah raiding against atlanteans only. If you micro well enough its gg before he reaches classical. Chubbites are very slow and can't catch up to priest/pharaoh. If damaged by TC fire, they'll heal each other.

In classical is anubite raid or nothin.

Never in Classical, but in heroic (you should go FH anyway) make CA and raid like crazy. It only takes like 4-6 CA per group to raid, anything to screw villies.

I have witnessed successful sphinx raids against me more than once. The sphinx is definitely a unit that is good for raiding.

yes, eggies in classical most certainly need to rely on MUs to raid.

as said before, anubites and sphinxes are good raiders, 2-3 on each group is often more than enough. beware of heroes though, so watch out if you're playing eggy mirror, or the norse.(attie heroes are expensive, so don't need to worry about them too much)

How about raiding with spearmen? They are fast, have high pierce armor (20% base + copper shields + leather frame shield). And, I guess, most players don't expect a raid from Egypt in classical. And if your enemy didn't upgrade his sentry towers, well that's just a pain in the ass for him/her then.
