i would vote OTSD just because I've always felt like sealed deck was the ultimate test of true deck building and playing ability, especially in the past when the "rich" had 10 of every rare and could build super powerful decks. Sealed deck was "the great leveler".

Best of Both Worlds Tourney (both 1E and 2E) - covered already; 1E and 2E together in one tourney
- the Chicago play group has curated a version of Kevin Jaeger's Cube. You receive a base deck (OTSD, SDII and a few other key cards), some random flavor packs (anything from the Followers of the One to DS9 with all available sites to a Tribble Bomb deck), several packs of dilemmas and several packs of everything else.

Open Constructed - All cards are legal except Raise the Stakes. Errata are still in effect, but OTF rules are not. It's the Wild West, sort of...
