for example, if the marshal blitzes down your right column, where your main attack force is (including majors and colonels and your marshal, your general is in  the middle, so is his general, what would you do?


Sacrifice marshal on his general if necessary and then use a combo of scouts + your general to attack his strong side

With lotto on the 4x4 square on that side of the board, avoiding the corner if it could contain a bombed in flag.

if you know his gen in middle then bring your gen in diagonal of his gen in such a way that he cannot move to the right having then marsh+gen attacking your col+ major. Put your colonel in diagonal of his marsh on the right and keep your marsh unknown. Then attack on left with your other colonel until he moves his gen over there. Then attack behind the right lake with small pieces and your gen. On left keep your col in diagonal of his gen. When time is right slowly move in your marsh as if it would be a small piece and force him into a 50/50 either for his gen or for his cols.

What is your best Stratego initial setup?

This set gave me more than 90% victories against bronze and silver players.

I always do general+spy in center, captain in front of general with spy behind lake backing it.

 

Then I can just do regular defense like your Komodo setup that you removed. 

I dont lose to silver players like this, but with gold lieutenant and under I use an unbalanced setup. One flank only has captains guarding it, while the general is in center again but not as much in antiblitz mode.

 

The marshal and other pieces are on the other side.

Setup of Komodo is good but i don't like the bomb's side, but i keep the pattern of the high pieces sometimes, for example :
