    Then it should work! As the conquistadors do not trigger Fez's ability, I thought it could only be done through direct conversion!

    Does it count when the city turns to the religion by itself? With mere pressure by proximity to a city?

    Play Russia, you'll have much higher faith production so you could use that to keep him from converting your cities to his faith. You'll also get your religion up faster so you could potentially snipe the best religious abilities.

    I just remembered that the Mongols have the ability to capture enemy cavalry!
    I think they can be the counter to Byzantium (the +3 Cs, and the double CS for visibility is nice too!)

    I believe the reason it doesn't work with Conquistadors is because Fez's ability works when converting foreign cities and Conquistadors are technically converting a city that has come under your control.

    I am unsure if it works from proximity pressure. Will have to test it.

    Insane,
    2 Tagmas can eliminate a Civilzation. And that's only the start. Haven't converted any Holy cities yet.

    Yes, byzantium is OP compared to many other civs. That being said, I have personally hated the OP walls of GS, and it was really nice to play a game again where I did not have to spend ages (literally) trying to bring a high combat strength city with walls down, and could actually do some conquering without waiting for flight.
