You nicely killed his initial rush, but you made a mistake when fighting under his towerfire. Also it was of no use to send that free scarab on a suicide mission to his RAX.
U made a nice fb unnnoticed on his side of the map with those miggy's you sohlud just attack a bit earlier next time, because most of the time, the player that controls the center wins the game, and u just let him sit there and wall and tower himself in. For the rest a very nice game, but build a miggy near your home TC next time.
Keep going like this, just a bit more Miggy units and more micro.

First of all you seem to know what you're doing with Ra. I commend you on figuring out which villager Loki spied and killing the correct one! Though it did set you back 50 food he was without LOS of your resource gathering after that.
You do well to stop Loki's forward building with your Axemen, but I look at your economy and you have 8 villagers on wood and 7 on gold - why? Egyptians don't need as much wood as other civs but they need more gold.
The Loki player didn't defend his FB very well at all and gave up immense amounts of wood - I would have destroyed all those houses of his ASAP to stifle his population limit and make him use up more wood rebuilding them.
When your units are under attack and can't win (eg slingers vs ulfsarks) run, don't let them die. That is wasted resources. You were making a lot of units so you might have considered building some more barracks earlier on than you did so you can mass an army quicker. It's worth the 75 gold.
You were sneaky with your other barracks and migdols over there, he didn't see it coming. You timed it to coincide with his attack so it was a case of "who will retreat first to save their base" - I love when that happens :p However you were definetely better defended. You should have made more elephants. Without Bragi's Ulfsark techs, he had a hard time taking your elles down.
You did well and in the end beat him with a much better economy - you could tell he was stretched when he used his villies to attack your elles!
As for some advice next match: You need to focus more on gold and less on wood. At one point you had 4,000 wood and 100 gold! You never want to be in a situation like that, especially without a market. Gold is more important than wood and especially so for eggys so bear that in mind.
