Any green base guild seems to be a good choice, just to get the juice options to much easier splash bombs of any color.
You get 6 guild gates , that hopefully are usefull to you to splash stuff.
The more bombs and removal you can play the better.
Green can tutor guild gates and has the 1 mana creature that produces any color of mana.
There are not too much cards with crazy manacosts, outside of the obnoxious cycle of uncommons and some rares.
Gruul and Simic seem to be reasonable save picks, as you can fairly easily splash white and splash black with just some or even a single guild gate of that color combination.
Orzhov, Azorius and Rakdos might only have the edge if you are truly lucky to simply get fitting bombs.
But regardless of that, having a easier time and a more sophisticated manabase is always a better starting point.
Overall Gruul seems to be the choice with the biggest bang and being green you get some fixing to play whatever bomb you open in other colors.
Rakdos for me. Spectacle is a very well-supported mechanic in limited, with a whopping thirteen commons and uncommons in Rakdos colors that directly damage opponents, many of which are repeatable. Black's removal options also look excellent this time around.
I'd like either Rakdos or Azorius. I love UW so Azorius would be nice but I'd also love the chance at a promo bedevil so I'm also hoping for Rakdos. Although I believe that my LGS is handing them out randomly so I doubt I'll be lucky t get my choice
Rakdos because Judith is the kind of woman I could instantly fall in love with IRL. This is no exaggeration. Ironically, in GRN I picked Golgari because I felt the exact same way about Izoni, I never thought an even more fascinating woman could pop up so soon.
What can I say? Apparently "my type" consists of ladies who are tall, leggy, sophisticated, and have hobbies/passions that range from creepy to downright gory.

Green - TBD
Multicolored/colorless/lands - TBD
I'm going Gruul; it seems that it's generally strong across the board. My backup is Azorius; it's flyer suite is pretty great for sealed, though I think they won't work as well in draft against an aggro build.
Gruul and Azorius are both better positioned than others. Azorius outclasses Orzhov, stonewalls Rakdos, and is about even with Simic. Gruul smashes Orzhov and Rakdos, and is about even with Simic. Simic is my third choice due to having no bad match but Orzhov.
So after playing a few pre releases, Simic seemed top tier. The fact that your guild mechanic is built-in flood insurance is FANTASTIC in the slower sealed format.
I agree that Simic is tops, I played 3 pre-releases, Orzhov, Simic, Rakdos. And during Simic (granted I had a sick pool) I played against Gruul all four rounds and did 3-1. Cards like Chillbringer and Sharktocrab really helps tilt the matchup.
