    I generally play Terra for a relatively even playing field for various advantages.

    For my builder playstyle the Incan UA is just sooo tasty - even with a dearth of hills.
    There are so many good units, but I think I'd go with Pathfinder and Conquistador.

    (I love Terrace Farms but you can't count on lots of hills.)

    The Byzantium UA is probably stronger, but I just have to wonder how fast you can get a religion using this!

    Shoshone UA, Pathfinder, and Paper Maker. I love the Shoshone stuff in combination, but the Comanche Riders suck. Meanwhile the Paper Maker eases the Gold issues early on...

    Strong Econ/army/production
    UA-Venice
    UU-Longbows
    UT-Terrace Farms
    Start Bias- Coastal mountains with at least 5 hills lol

    My personal one though would be:
    UA-Spain
    UU-Keshik
    UB-Pyramids

    I hate playing games that I get a good NW but I'm not Spain :aargh:
    This gives a little bit of everything

    Imagine Shoshone's ability to land grab combined with Spain's ability to get double benefits from Natural Wonders.

    Or for giant cities: Aztec UB & Ghandi's UA.

    Germany as is + B17 = resistance is futile. :D
    SoTL instead for island maps, Minuteman would also be nice.
    Berserker... hrmmm...

    ya know, there's a bunch to choose from that would just make things silly.
    Highly map dependent though.

    Spain UA + Pathfinder + Terrace Farm. Depending on the map, would break the game. Pathfinder seems to boost your early game ahead by 20-30 turns. Throw on GBR start with a few mountain tiles and GG.

    Zulu UA + Keshik + Burial Tomb. Tomb may seem like an odd choice, but religion is a huge potential source of happiness and Tomb has +2 thrown on as well. UA + Keshik for dominating everything and religious dominance for the smilies to back it up.

    Imagine this in one civ:
    Mongol Terror, Scourge of God, Keshik, Khan, Winged Hussar, Ducal Stables.
    Most terrifying army EVER. EVER.
