Lotus Petal isn't completely unlikely. Mana Crypt and Chrome Mox are both zero mana too but they are at mythic rarity. If lotus is at rare it could make sense to help support a storm theme. In a full box you might get 1-2 of these cards.
why everyone is still asking for chain lighting at rare (or someone even mythic)?
it was a common originally like Lightning Bolt who got bumped to uncommon in MM, Chain may be a bit rarer to find, but still less powerfull, if CL is reprinted (and I hope so for the contest) it will be at MAXIMUM an UC.
Goblin Guide at Mythic is out as we alredy have 2 red Mythic (and a RU multicolor) and I don't think we will have more than 2 mythic per color

Total side note but I like how people are discussing running this over itself.
Well, it has to be said that Kolaghan is clearly better than Kolaghan. Considering what BR decks usually want and how stiff the competition in this guild is, there is no way that I would run Kolaghan over Kolaghan! Kolaghan might make it in as the sixth guild card or so. Kolaghan on the other hand ranks several places below that.
It was so funny to me when they described this as a downgrade to the original Zurgo during the Pax East panel. I was thinking if this is a downgrade, they should really "downgrade" all legendary creatures. Haha.
My deck designing is quite concise at this point:
1. Come up with deck idea
2. Realize this idea is somehow fundamentally similar to another deck I have or that is commonly played in my group
3. Decide I don't want to disassemble one of my existing decks
4. Give up and do nothing
