Clearly 'community wiki, I would say'. Can't believe I never saw this before...

Looking at the file

$HOME/.sage/ipython/history-sage

I see that my common recent commands are:

NumberField, ModularSymbols, factor, timeit, EllipticCurve

plot() has got to be pretty high on the list, and maybe all of these require var()!

  • hg_sage -- I use this all the time, although of course you can run hg outside of Sage to accomplish the same thing.
  • time and timeit
  • SteenrodAlgebra -- well, I use it frequently, anyway...

It definitely depends on the person. For me, probably, the top four commands are _.<t>=QQ[], NumberField, EllipticCurve, and ModularSymbol.
