God of the Open Sky is a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It grants +1 Civ6Culture Culture to all tiles with a Pasture improvement.

Strategy Edit

Like Stone Circles, this pantheon is usually a safe early-game pick if some of the relevant resources are visible. Both Cattle (Civ6) Cattle and Sheep (Civ6) Sheep are common bonus resources that frequently spawn in clusters, and unlike Stone (Civ6) Stone, do not have as strong an incentive to be harvested. Unlike Stone Circles, however, God of the Open Sky does not provide Civ6Faith Faith, making it less appealing to religion-focused civilizations but of interest to those such as the Mongolians and the Scythians, who tend to spawn near Horses (Civ6) Horses and have a low Civ6Culture Culture output that hampers border growth.

In particular, God of the Open Sky is a natural fit for the Australians, especially if they're trying to win a Culture Victory. By founding cities near Cattle (Civ6) Cattle, Horses (Civ6) Horses, and Sheep (Civ6) Sheep, they can trigger Culture Bombs and generate bonus Civ6Culture Culture to quickly expand their cities' borders, and later surround them with Outback Stations to help their cities grow.
