5c CMDR Options Show
If we consider the options available you can likely rule out tribal commanders like Slivers, Dragons, Atogs, Scarecrows, and Elementals. I'd include Allies but they have some good ETB effects so it could be an option. Golos and Niv Mizzit have thier own ETB effects, Korona could be blinked to avoid switching control. Kenrith has utility, politics, and reanimation to reuse ETBs. Morphron and Jodah could be combined to make creatures free. Capt. Sisay can Tutor legends, or if you just want colors Progenitus or Ramos could be there as an alternate wincon via CMDR DMG. And lastly you could use Child of Alara as a "Nuke Button".
That's my take. Would need more on what your goals are besides Blink because there's lots you can do with these options.

I really love "Mark of the Atog" and having Atogatog as a commander! I am in the process of building a new cube as well. Take a look to maybe get some ideas. I would love any suggestions you may have from things you have learned.

So I was going to build child of alara as an aristocrat thing but I got distracted by Atogatog instead...
The Flung King is the result of that distraction and I like the general idea of the deck but I think it could use some help before I put it together in paper.
Obviously the land base needs to be changed, I'll be doing that last.
It seemed to me the best way to take advantage of Atogs is to abuse the amount of power/toughness they can get and take advantage of things that die and come back over and over. I would like to keep that as the central idea going forward.
Thanks for your thoughts.

is pretty brutal if you wanna go down that path. Those 2 enchantments can go into the
build too if you want something more janky.
Other than that I agree with DAWT_PLAWT with going 3 colors or even going with the new Teysa Karlov . Just make sure you go at minimum black/white/x since those are the best aristocrat colors.

And I think I'm looking at Atogatog , Child of Alara , Horde of Notions , or Reaper King . I know Orzhov or Golgari would be more streamlined but I'm doing all colors so that people can taste the pain-bow :P
Horde of Notions is somewhat limited being so focused on elementals. That is however a creature type that comes out in almost every set. This is an example of how that deck might look Endless Notions. Being able to instantly have some of those ETBs could make for some interesting plays.
Reaper King seems like the most restrictive to build around as I would be trying to abuse his interaction with scarecrows. Sadly most of those creatures are mediocre... It is being considered only because I like how he looks.
Atogatog comes with about 10 atogs that all act as sac outlets allowing the rest of the deck to be aristocrat value stuff. Might be the oddest choice as aristocrats is really creatures that die for value and this would be everything dies for value.
Child of Alara is an interesting thought... She acts as a mass sac outlet and kills my opponents stuff off at the same time. A little hard to abuse in this kind of deck but sac her with Viscera Seer let everything die triggering Zulaport Cutthroat and then bring it all back with Rise of the Dark Realms . Also this is the one that allows the most freedom in design.
Any thoughts or suggestions for 5-color aristocrats from y'all?

NoOneOfConsequence your deck does have an impressive value engine No doubt about it. It is not viable at all though, because your interaction is too weak and filtering is too slow to ever survive until Shirei hits.
I play shirei, with those cards, in a casual deck. Don't act like you know me better than I do, with your "stop bashing cards you don't know" nonsense. Get over yourself.
My shirei build is one I have bought 3 times now, giving them to new players, with each costing me $24 and sharing the list online at Budget Shirei Aristocrats/Sacrifice.
It is a great casual commander to start with but isn't competitive viable, and a proper shirei build can be tier 3, while yours is tier 5 or below, because an Atogatog built poorly with the price tag of your deck could be magnitudes of power better. Okay?
