I have been playing the new Blizzard custom Starjeweled, and I have beaten the AI on Medium but can't do anything against hard or higher. I can't even get a tick of damage on the AIs base. Looking for any information explaining strategies or even how the game works. I try to counter units based on what is on the field similar to how I would in Starcraft but I am getting wiped pretty quick each time. My kill count is higher and our jewel matches are very close.

A well working strategy is full tanks, which are a great long ranged unit, and mass hydra to support and kill the anti-air troups that the IA can spawn. Works even with a jewel match way worst that the IA's one ^^.

Here is a video to show it :

When going against insane AI, make sure not to use storms if it can be avoided. The computer won't waste energy on spells, so the "lock" and "heal" spells is what you should limit yourself to. Otherwise the AI will overwhelm you on unit count. Remember, you don't have a partner to keep producing Units while you use storms. Stick to unit counters, and lock down big units like ultras and colossi. Also, be conscious of what they are producing. Have your map view centered on their base so when that colossus pops out you can have lock energy ready, or when the roaches come you can get a head start on a colossus of your own. The same goes for the air units they make. You will get a jump on making hydras if you are watching their base as opposed to the battle.
