Merchants of Venice, i really love those guys, but how to have them quickly (the free one from Optics is not count)? And what is the best way to use them in each period of the game? I usually use the Optics free guy to generate my gold pool rather than buy a CS. But then i need another puppet and realize i have no MoV. What building and research to increase their appeareance rate? Btw, which SPs should I follow as Venice? I like to develop and make friend with other civs, so i think it's better for a Diplomacy or Culture Victory.
