I vote to bring back the Rubik's Magic. But not the way it was before where it was just to get from stage A to B. Scramble them, mess them up, and then have the competitors get back to the solved state. Either one. That way, it's not the same way over and over again and it's more like the other twisty puzzles in the WCA.

I said other. I would like to see a more interesting event added, something like TeamBLD. Imo, all of the events on the poll are kinda boring. Mirror is just a 3x3 mod; 8x8 is just another big cube; a cubiod is different, but still not that interesting; and curvy copter is, well, curvy copter. I'm not trying to bash on your list, I'm just tired of seeing the same things, but at least Redi Cube isn't on there. :)

1) REDI CUBE
2) KILOMINX
I also agree with AbsoRuud: the idea of scrambling Magic and MMagic is excellent (in theory), but I'd like to see how a notation could be developped (or rather, how it would be possible).
I was in favor of the 15-puzzle before seing the criteria that a solve also provides something to see for the spectators (and that's a big problem with clock).

Kilominx. It's interesting, short (compared to 8x8+) and it isn't too difficult, while remaining more challenging than redi or skewb. There's also room for development and improvement and there's a scrambler. Also, with the event being kinda fast, it shouldn't clog up comps. Too much.
Mirror cube is a big no. Just a 3x3 shape mod.

There isn't much good hardware for master pyraminx. Side story, when I just started, I got a Shengshou master pyraminx by accident, and it was terrible.

Because of how few states magic could be in, this isn't plausable. There's also one of the major reasons magic was removed, that it's very hard to judge timer starts for the event.
I personally don't think there's an event to add, as nothing is really held unofficially currently.

The Qiyi Master Pyraminx is good enough. It's not like there's a lot of great hardware for clock or that there was lots of great hardware for SQ1 for the longest time. Good hardware will follow an event being added. If master pyraminx gets added, you'll see new master pyraminxes from Moyu, Shengshou, Qiyi, and Yuxin very quickly and hardware will improve in a hurry.

Kilominx had a lot of competitions over multiple countries. Redi cube also had a few competitions, and many other events were organized at No Stress Solving 2017.

Kilominx would be nice, because then there would be better hardware for it. Plus it is another relatively easy event for new cubers.
