I voted for Common Magic.

IMO, it's the most straightforward in application. The description of Common Magic in the core book presents it as a standard magic system.

"Spells and cantrips that are ubiquitous to many cultures and societies. Common Magic manipulates the natural order with varying degrees of subtlety and offers a host of effects that ease daily life or augment specific endeavours, such as combat and skill use.

... the nature and effects of Common Magic are visible to all, understood by most and recognisable from one culture to another."

I voted Common  Magic because usually it's Sorcery for "professional" magicians, and Common Magic for non-professionals.

But it depends on campaign background, and it can be Animism in some places.

In a sense, I think that's part of the question - which of the systems is least campaign-dependent? Which is easiest to adapt to different settings?

See my first sentence, then. :)
