I think it's okay, but I'm not quite sure about it, and I think it only works on medium maps. I've only seen it, never used it. :P

1. Two miners + swordwrath.
2. Send swordwrath to middle, make first two miners pray and get Rage.
3. Make the two miners mine and as the other two miners come in, make them mine as well.
4. Get another sword, and garrison if necessary until Rage is activated.
5. Make tons of miners and swords and take over middle, harassing until the enemy makes a castle archer or gives up.

From here I don't know what they do but what I seem a lot of is winged archers and ghosts (so back to the albowtross mass + ghost harassment).

IMO it's just a safer opening to get right to ghost harassing, but what do you think and is it worthwhile?

Yes it works, and yes its worth doing.
It also works as well to delay getting rage a little to get more swords and miners first. I dont play order enough to say which is the best way. Since you have the 50 gold left, and dont have anything else to spend it on, it seems pretty smart use of the gold.

You don't put pray first, you put first miners on gold, put 1 on pray, put other on gold so 3 mining, get swords when miners get first gold in, when miner on pray gets 50 mana, get rage and put him on gold, get atleast 6 mining before getting on pray again! Alba spam now..
Now you have army of about 10 swords and 10 albas, DESTROY THEIR GIANTS (I mean, they must have giants by now right?)!

It sounds like an interesting strategy and worth trying, but I agree with KrayZStick on having first miners on gold.

For me its easy to beat on large maps, 3 miners 1 sword (distraction when has low health heal) get more miners and archer to kite.
