Hi, reading through these forums I realise I stumbled upon a variant by accident. I always played that monsters needed to be selected before godly powers could be applied. This means that Zeus' monster discarding ability only allows you to get rid of monsters rather than pick them for you. It also somewhat limits pegasus as you need to already have an army to invade with.

What do people think of this variant (when I played, I assumed this was just the rule!)

I think that would take away what is valuable about Zeus.

Would it though? In the early game the value of Zeus is in priests and temples. It's only late game that monster cycling would be a sensible thing to do, and does it matter massively that in this situation he's less useful?
