I also don't like ranking saints, but here are some of my favorite non-biblical saints.
St. Basil the Fool has to be one of my favorites. In fact, I love all the holy trolls. Their method appeals to me because I can simultaneously laugh at their antics and be touched by what they are trying to get across.
St. Nicholas is one of my favorites. He was truly a man full of love, angelic in actions, though even he when confronted by the vile filth of Arius has no choice but to give him a licking.
St. John of Shanghai is my family patron and I have kept an Icon of St. George for many years.
I like St. Alexander of the Neva and St. Mercurius. They are role models for us and keep a little bit of that Old Testament goodness alive.
St. Pachomius and St. Anthony of the desert I always love to read together. Great men.
I have been reading the commentary on the Gospel of John by Theophylact. I have always heard him referred to as "the Blessed" rather than "St." but wikipedia says that the Serbian and Russian churches consider him a saint. That's good enough for me. I cannot help but love his writing because nto only is he full of fervor for Orthodoxy and an enemy of heresy, but he is also the master of dissing heretics. (Concerning Appolinarians [sp?]: "May you and your followers perish.")
St. Tsar Nicholas II. The jury is out as to whether he was a good political ruler, but he died for the faith, and that is enough for me.
