I have to agree with Dana and JR on this. The two most useful casts in ones arsenal are the circle/snap T and the double. If you can become proficient with these two casts there are not many situations on the water that you can not cover with these two casts. Plus they are probably the two easiest ones to learn quickly. Except for skagit casting but apparently that is taboo in this post..............

As for ripping up the water. I dont see why one needs to do this. if you are tearing up the water you are putting way to much emphasis or force in your strokes? This will mess up your rhythm and tends to ruin the entire cast. When I try and teach or help someone with their casting. I put a great deal of emphasis on teaching them to slow down. This seems to be the single biggest problem I see when people are trying to learn how to cast?
