City Patron Goddess is a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It increases the Civ6Production Production toward District (Civ6) Districts by 25% in cities that do not yet have a specialty district.

Strategy Edit

This pantheon is useful for wide play, such as:

  1. Doing semi-expansionist Religious Victory to build Holy Sites in small far-flung colonial cities to be used as healing sites for your religious army.
  2. Building many Commercial Hubs for TradeRoute6 Trade Route spamming.
  3. Building many Theater Squares for spamming Archaeological Museums for a Culture Victory.

This pantheon is also especially powerful for civilizations with a strong unique district, which is most likely the first one to be erected in a new city, notably England with the Royal Navy Dockyard, Phoenicia with the Cothon, or Mali with the Suguba. However, as most unique districts have a lower Civ6Production Production cost, you would not be getting the full benefit from this pantheon.

This pantheon is not so useful for conquest as there will usually already be a specialty district in the city you take over. This pantheon can also be useful for cities built mid-to-late game with a single purpose (like a city built simply to take advantage of a perfect Campus location).

Other niche strategies include:

  1. Combining this pantheon with Poland is useful to rush Encampments for the Culture Bomb.
  2. Building several districts without finishing any of them completely, then finishing them one by one. This way every district will get the 25% discount; however, it has the downside of you not getting the bonuses of the districts being finished until all are completed.
