I started to play magic around a year ago so I am pretty new. Our playgroup shifted pretty fast to EDH. My first Commander was and still is Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker i started on a Budget and slowly upgraded it more and more. And i Love the aristocrat Style of play. But we got a Buch of new players in our playgroup so, and some have a higher powerlevel, which I don’t know if I can reach with Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker alone.
So which aristocrat commanders would you recommend for a strong deck (so I am more flexibel with th power Level) To mind comes of course Teysa Karlov but what other options do you think are there? (I still find it hard to evaluate power level)
Ghave, Guru of Spores is possibly one of the strongest aristocrat commanders, many broken combos while also being able to easily set where the power level you want him to be at.

The recent unban of Painter's Servant has me eyeballing Teysa, Orzhov Scion more and more. She makes a strong commander without combo and ridiculous with it. Plus the pay off on her is exiling opponent's creatures. Anytime anything slightly scary looks at you just snap your fingers and it is gone.

I also want to mention I've seen semi-competitive builds of Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker as an aristocrat/stax commander. So if you wanted to add some stax pieces like Smokestack you could keep playing him. I always end up with feel bads when playing stax but maybe that is just me...

First of all thank you all for your amazing ideas! I will take a deep look in all of them and see what kind of build ideas I like. Ghave, Guru of Spores was in my had aswell, he looks like a lot of fun. (And is a Fungus a creature type I enjoy) But I am shying away from it a bit, because of the 3 different mana base and I would have to invest a lot into lands.
So let the research begin, and if anyone cares I will post for what I will go for in the end!

Ghave's mana base can be quite easy to build Murmuring Bosk is a 3 color land that can be pulled by fetchlands (the pricy option) Krosan Verge , and Nature's Lore . A deck with slightly heavy green can also easily get fixing from ramp cards, Springbloom Druid is a newer option.

I would recommend Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest . Its one of my favorite decks to play and it's quite powerful.
