Religious Idols is a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It provides +2 Civ6Faith Faith to Mine improvements built over Luxury and Bonus resources.

Strategy Edit

Religious Idols is a relatively useful pantheon for Nubia, and even more so for Mali. The extra Civ6Faith Faith that they receive from Mines over luxury and bonus resources can be used to purchase buildings in their Sugubas, providing them with more TradeRoute6 Trade Routes and additional Civ6Gold Gold that they can use to purchase units and buildings for their Holy Sites and other key District (Civ6) Districts.

That being said, these two civs are usually better off choosing Desert Folklore, which increases the yields of a greater number of (unimproved) tiles. For other civs, Stone Circles is usually a more efficient pantheon than Religious Idols, especially for players who aren't serial harvesters of all available Stone (Civ6) Stone.
