I wouldn't make them tribal decks. I would just pick a "commander" that reflects that colors greatest strengths. You might at well make the format modern as well if its just going to be the set 5 decks.

Here are some Ideas for my commanders and their edicts.

W- Go wide Odric, Lunarch Marshal, or Odric, Master Tactician with some tiny fellows that all have cool keyword abilities and a few angels

W edicts: Luminesce, Celestial Purge, Surge of Righteousness

U- Control Talrand, Sky Summoner, or Baral, Chief of Compliance. Just load the deck with all instants and sorceries and a few sphinx as win cons

U edicts Encase in Ice, Flashfreeze

B- Midrange Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Yahenni, Undying Partisan. just play a bunch of mean and treacherous things and sprinkle with demons

B edicts: Deathmark, Talara's Bane, Self-Inflicted Wound

R Tempo "aggro wont work in a 5 player game" Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Lovisa Coldeyes, kind of aggro but with more card draw and removal with some good dragons too,

R edicts: Combust, Rending Volley

G Big ol' Ramp Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, just get lots of mana, defiantly include some hydras.

G edicts Display of Dominance, Great Sable Stag, Mold Adder (I kno they're creatures but green gets an exception)

Anti-white, huh?
Black Knight is a cheap, efficient creature that your friend will never be able to block.
Dystopia could help against enchantments, if that's what your friend is going for.
Gloom will be essential, especially if you decide to go the discard route.
Hand of Cruelty is like Black Knight.
Inquisition is inexpensive, and gives you some reach.
Jovial Evil is similar to Inquisition.
Knight of Infamy, Knight of Stromgald, Order of the Ebon Hand and Stromgald Crusader would be good if you decide to go aggro.
Lifebane Zombie is a solid pick, especially for the discard route.
Marauding Knight could be a bomb against your friend.
Self-Inflicted Wound gets around protection.
Stromgald Cabal should probably go in no matter what.
Virtue's Ruin should definitely go in no matter what.

Oh, also, your sideboard could use some fixing. I could go through samples of sides against common decks. A lot of your side in Rakdos is gonna be artifacts, but then you've got stuff like Deathmark, Self-Inflicted Wound, Slaughter Games, Shatterstorm, Boil, Crumble to Dust, Pyroclasm, Rakdos Charm, Duress, Liliana, the Last Hope, Vampire Hexmage and Fulminator Mage, all in-color to hit top tier threats.

Good artifacts include but are not limited to Pithing Needle, Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb, Painter's Servant, Dragon's Claw, Spellskite, Ratchet Bomb, Engineered Explosives, and for other colorless stuff, Ghost Quarter and Mindbreak Trap.

Get the fetches first, they thin your deck and force shuffles for Nocturnus. What I would side:

1x Drown in Sorrow, 2x Bile Blight or 2x Smother, 3x Deathmark or Self-Inflicted Wound, 2x Dragon's Claw, 3x Ratchet Bomb, 2x Ghost Quarter and 2x Surgical Extraction OR 2x Torpor Orb and 2x Pithing Needle.

Memoricide is also an option or extra Dismembers

you have to swap between main and side, it's the rule. a sideboard is used to hit specific problem matchups. I try to tailor mine to hit as much of the meta as possible. side cards are often highly situational. that's why they're side cards. Let's use Deathmark as an example. Useless as a mainboard card, since not all decks use white or green creatures. But as a sideboard card it's incredible because zoo and abzan decks are so prevalent. If you wanted to make a small sacrifice in mana for versatility to hurt more decks, you would sideboard Self-Inflicted Wound for hexproof auras.
