Default Your "Go To" Top 5 Spices

Started a batch of sauce this morning for the July 4th cook. While staring at the spice cabinet full of probably a hundred different jars, boxes, and bottles, I realized I go to the same basic 5 more often as a base for most rubs and sauces.
Besides salt and pepper which are a standard in almost everything (so they won't count),
mine are:

Brown (or turbinado) Sugar
Granulated Garlic
Granulated Onion
Smoked Paprika
Cumin

What are your "Go To" top 5?

I'd leave the Cumin and replace it with some heat. Pretty standard stuff.
I'll be interested in seeing what the others say. I'm really simple and straight forward
kind of cook

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
