As I understand the current situation, the 2016 MCSA exams are still in development, and there isn't a ton of material available for Server 2016 yet.  If you were looking to start something today and pursue it rapidly,  I'd say work on the Server 2012 R2 material, and plan to upgrade to 2016 when you finish.

Agree Rich Weissler. Then you have two certificates.

Study 2012 and get those certs. You're going to be working on 2012 servers for at least another 5 or 6 years from now, so it will help you more to study the older edition then upgrade to 2016. 2016 is supposed to have a good number of major changes, so you'll probably be better off in the long run.
