In terms of power sets, Mephisto trumps The Mandarin across the board.   But when has that ever stopped someone from winning a SWATH battle before?

Most of his abilities are dependent on his rings

Mephisto is an immensely powerful demon. He possesses great intelligence which is how he can manipulate and deceive others easily. He has demonstrated projection of mystical energy, erecting mystical shields, becoming invisible or intangible, casting illusions, summoning supernatural creatures, teleportation, changing size, and shape-shifting. His true form is unknown. He is completely indestructible to most attacks, and is immune to disease. He doesn't need to breathe, eat, drink, or sleep. He has defeated Silver Surfer in combat before and seems to have no limit to his age. He also can possess mortals and cast spells of unknown power. He likely has other powers that have yet to be discovered. He literally can do anything that a human can comprehend and more. Mephistopheles is not the Devil, he is an arch-demon. Being a demon, he can capture lost souls but only with the mortal's approval which is one of his main weaknesses. Another weakness is that if he leaves his dimension he isn't as powerful and depends on the worship of his followers. Mephistopheles can read minds as well.

Not exactly right, the Surfer outwrestled Mephisto in his dimension in Silver Surfer vol.2 # 1. They fought once more after that in Mephisto's dimension, with Mephisto faking his death in order to acquire the Surfer's soul.

So no, Mephisto has never defeated Silver Surfer straight up.    Not that Mandarin has either, but that potential feat has knocked him down a peg or two. 

This would be a closer battle then you might think.  The Mandarin is very cunning with his fighting styles, though he is used to battling technology much more then magic.  Mephisto on the other hand has alot of experience fighting people like Mandarin.  And since his power levels are higher I think that tips the battle in his favor.

My take is Mephisto has been around manipulating people, taking souls, granting 'wishes', and generally using his powers for infinite gain for a lot longer than The Mandarin has been around. I'm not convinces that he would even compare to Mephisto's magical abilities. I welcome all arguments, but as of now, I'm going for Mephisto.

Mephisto should win hands down, and by the looks of the voting everyone agrees.
