    I'd like something...animist-like. Archaeologists continue to find evidence of animal worship, and as they seem to have been among the the first deities I'd like to see some representation...hmm. There are typically 6 early civilizations that probably deserve mention; Mesopotamia (Sumer which becomes Babylon a few millennia later); Egypt we already have; Indus Valley (India) we also have here; China (primarily Majiayao culture); Norte Chico civilization (Ancient Peru); And Mesoamerica (primarily the Olmecs). I have to admit I'm not fond of the word "civilization" in certain contexts.

    I would like a Polynesian Pantheon, but it's not like you can really encapsulate that much difference in just one. It's not quite "American Indian" bad, by any means, but the myths of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Tahiti are about as different as those of Greece vs. Rome, Russian vs. Polish, Germanic vs. Norse, so one pantheon for both might work there. But those two together are distinctive from Hawaii that it's probably too much glomming together of things that are pretty different. More like Irish and Welsh or Baltic and Slavic. Distinctive enough that it's probably a disservice to mush them up together. Then you have something like Rapa Nui (Easter Island) which has gone it's own weird way from either of those.

    Otherwise, in no particular order: Mesopotamian (which is big, messy and chronologically deep, but can probably work as one pantheon, just like I don't see the need for Mycenean AND Greek pantheons), Hopi, Navajo, Inuit, Inca, Cherokee, Slavic, Canaanite, Lakota, Welsh, Tengriist...

    And, more generally: An Australian Aboriginal pantheon, something from West Africa, something from Central Asia (one, at least), something from Melanesia, something from the Amazon basin, something from the American/Canadian Northwest Coastal region

    And, of course, always.... Hittite.

    Cherokee, Navajo, Iroquois, or Russian would all be really cool.

    Mesopotamian. Hands down. I've become obsessed with them in recent years. They are just the coolest!

    Polynesian would also be welcome. As would the various Native American pantheons. Slavic/Russian are also cool.

    Inca first and foremost. Then Maya, personally. Less personally, Polynesian, Mesopotamian, and Inuit. And, in my dream-world, Guarani

    A Native American pantheon would be cool and an official slavic/russian would be interesting.

    An Official Mayan, Inuit, or Arabic Pantheon might be nice.
