My top five would probably be DSA Royal Navy, SA Abyss, XDA Canvas (Godspeed is good too), GMK Lazer, and SA Miami Dolch. I only have one of those ATM, but I have big plans for the future :P
Hmm. Depends on what case you use it with.
I love the Miami color scheme, but most caps don't do it justice. I've got a set of Miami Dolch DSA, and I love them. DSA Royal Navy is beautiful, and I wish they'd do another run of SA Danger Zone. Was just getting into the hobby when it had its run.
I really like my Nautilus set, but Laser and Penumbra are also favorites of mine. I have both laser and Penumbra on order, so I'll have a better opinion once I see them in person.
My very first order of this profile here is SA Carbon. I joined MD because I wanted SA 1976 but even if round two ever came for it, or any set I buy in the future I’ll still go back to SA Carbon.

I‘ve learned so much from the Carbon drop, and spent a lot of time following that discussion thread. T0mb3ry even made a “salty” kit to highlight the debacle event of incorrect pricing. Only creator I know who adds a special set to commentate an event during a drop. So far this set matches all the colors of my keebs; black, silver and pink. It shocked me that Carbon worked well on pink, and now makes me think Carbon won’t disappoint me with any future keebs I buy.



Lights on!

Congrats on that awesome set. So mad that i missed this
new england reptile distributors?
If you're into blank keycaps, you can get 3~5 Gateron/EnjoyPBT blank keysets for the price of a decent labelled keyset to create mixed tone keysets with. So far I've gotten 4 (Black, Dark gray, Milk White, and Ghost White). I plan to get Tan and CMYK to finish the blank collection.

Best parts are:

1. Quality is top notch
2. You can create new keysets when you get tired one

That said, it's all Cherry profile so I ordered a SA Solarized Penumbra for times when I miss the sound of raindrops.
If I could only have one SA set it would be Space Cadet.

I've seen this layout a few times, and I really really like it. Where did you buy it?

Oh I only wish this was mine! I believe this beautiful TX-CP belongs to Wodan.

Not sure if this qualifies, but unicorn vomit, any profile, is the gift that keeps giving (and evolving).

I mean I guess it counts
As of right now it has to be DSA Granite, just because it looks good on anything you put it on. The Tai-Hao Mini Classics that just dropped are pretty good looking too (I got mine in yellow)
Endgame=One more keycap set XD

DSA "Granite" Keyset from pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-granite-keyset/
- designed by Matt3o, comes with low-profile, DSA keycaps and is made with durable PBT material
and long-lasting dye-sublimated legends.
- Common kits and Icon Modifier, Icon RGB keysets.
I'm pretty keen on the Laser keys, but Nautilus makes me feel things.
Laser
GMK Honeywell for me (Don't actually have a set :( hoping for another GB) . I also quite like the SA Mint set that's in GB right now too.

I totally had a brain fart. It's SA LIME. Link here: https://kono.store/products/maxkey-lime-group-buy

You could always go with DSA honeywell. More flexibility and better looking red mods than GMKs set imo
