The Egyptians have a powerful and cost effective army. However, they require a certain level management for their mighty potential to be realized.
The core of the Bronze Age (age 2) Egyptian army is its barracks units, which swarms the enemy when massed and allows you to complete quests and win PvP matches alike. The Spearman, Axeman, and Slinger cost very little and train very quickly, but they also die very easily. Because of this, it is important to make many production facilities so you can quickly reinforce your army.
Making so many units requires a strong economy. Luckily, the Egyptians can train Priestesses of Ra. Not only does empowering with Priestesses of Ra make your economy more efficient, but it also makes resources last longer. (For example, if empowered by a Priestess of Ra, a gold-mining villager will return 11 gold while only taking 10 gold out of the gold deposit.)
Maximize the effect of your Priestesses by empowering drop-sites that many villagers return resources to. (One exception: don’t task more than 6 or 7 wood-chopping villagers to a single storehouse.)
If you need to reach the Silver Age to defeat your enemy, you’ll be happy to find War Elephants, which are ultra-powerful and have only three weaknesses: their slow train-time, anti-cavalry, and priests.
With effective management of resources The Egyptian Civ will provide a powerful army just waiting for you to take command and destroy your enemies.
