If you had no quiver and didn't care about price what would you pick?

I'll go first: since I don't ride park hardly at all I would probably pick the most recent Ride Berserker if I had to go with one board.

If I had megabucks, I'd go into the most well-stocked shop in our area and buy 10 boards and 10 sets of bindings. Of course I'd be retired (or a professional snowboarder which is about the same thing) so I'd be able to spend all day trying them out against each other.

I'd get the Cygnus-x1 just to see if riding a $3000 board offers any advantages.
But I'm with Donutz on getting a mega quiver as well.

I don't know if I would have the patience for 100 different combinations. Even if I were retired. I could, however, easily come home with that many jackets.

Ha; this question is easy to aswer. I've just spent some hours looking for reviews/info since the splitboard retailer site with the biggest selection in this county was updated today with the 13/14 stuff - and I'm clueless... I'd just get all 13 splits and find out by myself, which one is MY one

Yeah, it's kind of a trick question because I don't think any dedicated rider would only be stuck with one board if money was no issue.

A press, digital screen printer, quality mid weight bi and tri glass, carbon stringers, strips, and sticks, 7000 extruded base material, and a core mill. Make my own damn boards.

And a big honkin' pickup truck to cart in snow from the back of the local icerink where the Zamboni gets emptied.

I would honestly choose the Cygnus-X1, because it really does look awesome. It costs more than the car I'm looking at buying, so I'd never realistically consider it unless I could get it at a steep discount, but it does look like it's had a lot of effort put into making it.
