Concept: An Aggressive start allowing the mongol player to up with Silver tree, and get economic advantage by creating efficient mongol trade.

Dark Age
-Place your TC As near as possible to both wood and Gold.
-5 Vils start chopping wood (even before the TC is unpacked). the 6th vils builds the ovoo. After the Ovoo is built, this vil goes to sheep.
- Add 2 more vils to sheep (3 on sheep, 5 on wood) and then take out one from Wood to sheep (4 on sheep, 4 on wood). Keep adding villagers on sheep.
- As soon as you have 150 wood, build the barracks next to the ovoo, with one villager from wood. When the barracks is up, send the villager to build towers.
- Use your stone to double produce spearmen. Keep producing Spearmen constantly
-Keep adding villagers to food until you get 11 on sheep. (at this point you should have 11 on sheep, 3 on wood and one vil forward making towers)
- Next Vill goes to wood. Also, move 2 vils from Sheep to Gold (so now we have 9 on Sheep, 4 on wood, 2 on gold and 1 vil forward)
-Send 2 more vills to wood, and the next one to gold (9 on Sheep, 6 on wood, 3 on gold and 1 vil forward)
- Send one more vill to wood (9 on Sheep, 7 on wood, 3 on gold and 1 vil forward)

Click to Feudal:
-At this point you should be able to build the silver tree. Take 8 vills from Food, and build it. (1 on Sheep, 7 on wood, 3 on gold, 8 building Silver tree and 1 vil forward).
-Next villager goes to wood, the next one builds an stable next to the ovoo, and the next one goes to wood aswell (1 on Sheep, 9 on wood, 3 on gold, 8 building Silver tree, 1 building stable and 1 vil forward).

Feudal Age
- Take the villagers that were building the Silver tree and pull them back to sheep (9 on Sheep, 9 on wood, 3 on gold, 1 building stable and 1 vil forward). Also, send your Silver tree to a distant point, far from your opponent base and from the neutral market. This is key, in order to
- When your stable is up, build an Archery Range next to the ovoo. You can use one vill from sheep to build it faster, if the pressure at your opponent base is not strong enough (8 on Sheep, 9 on wood, 3 on gold, 2 building archery range and 1 vil forward).
-Next vill goes to Sheep (9 on Sheep, 9 on wood, 3 on gold, 2 building archery range and 1 vil forward).
- When finishing building the Archery range, reassign your builders to sheep and wood (10 on Sheep,10 on wood, 3 on gold, 1 vil forward).
- The next villager builds a Pasture. The goes to sheep. The next one goes to wood (11 on Sheep, 11 on wood, 3 on gold, 1 vil forward).

From this point on, you can start creating trade carts while applying pressure.

Notes:
-You only need to use to vills to rush the Stable/Archery Range if your pressure in dark age is not good enough.
- Do not try to be too greedy when sending your Silver tree away. If spoted by your oponent, it could be an instant GG. it's better to have shorter yet safer trade, specially if your pressure is not super strong.
