    I'm going to do something a bit different than Keshiks and say Pathfinders, Triple Gold from Barbarian Camps and Pillage, and Wats.

    It depends on the map. Shosone + Wayfinding (Polynesia) = insane ruins abuse on water or terra maps. Cities of Gold + Wayfinding = insane natural wonder abuse on water or terra maps. Longbowmen + Great Andean Road = invulnerable archers that can attack and retreat out of melee reach every turn on hill maps.

    The ikanda paired with siege towers. Fast with a huge flanking bonus and a healthy resistance to ranged attacks. Better yet, they'll promote into regular siege later!

    I really like siege towers (even though longbows are OP) and royal libraries (wats, paper makers are also excellent). Couple that with jade scholars or the persian +50% GA length I think.

    Patriarchates of Constantinople - When founding a religion, pick an additional belief.
    - I always go religion, and being able to make deadly combinations to my religion would be devastating.
    The Pyramid - +2 Science and +1 Faith
    - The science is the reason, it truly boosts up your tech gain (not to mention it helps with faith AND if you get +2 from City Connections)
    Merchant of Venice - Expend him to annex City States
    - Seeing as I'm not a warmonger and I play on Quick, he's the only unit that's "always" there,and being able to expand my territory without being marked as a warmonger... nicey nicey!

    Someone needs to make a mod that enables this, would be fun to play around with.

    I would want Polders, Floating Gardens, and Solidarity

    Could maybe switch the UA for something with better synergy, but massively tall cities are so fun, and so are social policies.

    Scholars of the Jade Hall, Floating Gardens, and Panzers.

    Build a tall tech empire until you reach panzers. Then tank over the world.

    I think I would take (but later regret when my faith is obliterated by hundreds of missionaries)

    Stele
    Pathfinders
    Byzantines extra faith

    I would also like
    Ingenuity (Babylon)
    Bazaar
    Longbowmen

    I think this would be a great addition to multiplayer.
