Default Survival mode

Which do you think is the best civilization for Survival mode (taking into account the emissary gain rate)?

I'm feeling that Nomad is very strong. Cheap cities are wonderful; together with one emissary every map to take the best starting position or expel the most threatening opponent, most maps can be won easily. Desert maps are tough for them because of expensive Citadels, but that's what the extra emissaries are for. Their weaknesses of being unable to farm and having no Ziggarat/Palace are easily covered by their best strength, namely the cheap cities.
