Forbidden City  Kilwa Kisiwani  (22+1) This all comes down to personal playstyle at this point. I can see why if someone plays small maps they might not find much use out of this. But I always play on standard size maps and I find I can always get some great yields from this, even if the AI eats up a few city states. I can just imagine how much more powerful this would be on a huge map and so many more city-states. Personally, I find the increased culture, science, faith, gold, and/or production yields across my empire more helpful usually than extra GPPs or +1 builder charge. For example, if you're going for a SV and you suzerain at leas two science states and two production states, your KK city has 30% science and 30% production (and 15% across all other cities). Perfect for an SV. That will get you further than just a boost to Great Scientists or an extra builder charge. Oracle  Pyramids  (25-3) Again, personal playstyle, but I don't build the pyramids that much. In games where I've built it, I've found it a nice handy bonus but nothing I would go out of my way over. I'll build Oracle and KK more often than this. Typically I don't try and build too many workers until once I get serfdom and five charges. The lack of a sixth pyramid charge has never held me back.
