Top 8 picks for rotisserie?

Let's see...

Mythic and Rare

Day of Judgment
Hellkite Charger
Kazuul Warlord
Malakir Bloodwitch
(S)cute Mob
Sphinx of Jwar Isle
Sphinx of Lost Truths
Rampaging Baloths

Other contenders:
Harrow
Burst Lightning
Hideous End (although probably not)
Journey to Nowhere


I think all first 8 will be among those.
My picks would be in the following cards:


Sphinx of Jwar Isle
Marsh Casualties
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
Sorin Markov
Hellkite Charger
Day of Judgment
Living Tsunami
Malakir Bloodwitch



With a mention to:

Sphinx of Lost Truths
Emeria Angel
Felidar Sovereign
Eldrazi Monument
Rite of Replication


Top 8 cards I would love to see P1P1

Sorin Markov
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
Sphinx of Jwar Isle
Sphinx of Lost Truths
Marsh Casualties
Day of Judgment
Rampaging Baloth
Baloth Woodcrasher


Sorin just wins games practically all by himself.  He won me many games in the prerelease sealed event.
Top 8 picks that anyone would love to see:

Ob Nixious
Sphinx of Jwar Isle
Sorin
Rampaging Baloths
Malakir Bloodwitch
Plated Geopede
Iona, Shield of Emeria
Nighthawk or Emeria, Sky Ruin for last I would say
I suspect the top 8 picks would look something like:

1. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
2. Eldrazi Monument
3. Eternity Vessel
4. Sorin Markov
5. Nissa Revane
6. Hellkite Charger
7. Felidar Sovereign
8. Luminarch Ascension
9. Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghent
10. Vampire Nighthawk

Emeria Angel and Malakir Bloodwitch would also get heavy consideration.  After this you're talking about the Sphinxs, Terra Stomper, Scute Mob, World Queller, the various fetchlands, etc.
I actually had to take Ob Nixilis over Vampire Nighthawk just yesterday, which won me the draft.  I guess Nissa is less exciting in a Rotisserie draft, but most of the mythics are worthwhile.
