Though the concept of Tzeentch (and a little bit of Slaanesh) appeals t me, I doubt I would ever side with Chaos. I go for the Emperor. (maybe I belong at a new site as I look at the title)
Malal is a renegade god because he wants to dethrone all the chaos gods. He kills other chaos creations and chaos followers. He also strikes down any followers who serve the Emperor or any other Gods.

I say malal because he is what Chaos should be. By that I mean having no structure. No alliances and doing what he wants regardless of who it helps. Lets look at it, he wants the others to die and from wha t know of him is the oldet of the Chaos.

I am insulted that there were no options for the star gods!

I think that people need to get over the Chaos God's hating each other.

All everyone says is, the God's hate each other so they won't work together etc etc wah wah.

But the fact is they can and do work together at various times. It's called the Great Game, its eternal, they are always seeking an advantage over the other and more often than not that means promising x something so they can attack y together. Also they team up when attacking the material realm, as is indicated loads of times in the Chaos Daemon Codex. I mean look at what they did to the old ones in Warhammer, and those Lizardmen.

Also stop saying things like Khorne hates Tzeentch and Slaanesh because he thinks they are effeminate wimps (one because he uses magic the other becuase he ... kinda is effeminate), it's because they are a conflict of interests in terms of their desires and also sometimes due to an overlapping in potential souls.

Someone likes killing? They could easily be a Champion of either Khorne or Slannesh etc etc.

Chaos Gods are getting way too simplified IMO and it's starting to show badly.

Finally, Malal is just another form of Chaos, not it's true form ... oh the Chaos Gods are about killing, so killing everything including Chaos itself as well is awesome .... no, in it's original incarnation Malal represented Chaos' ultimately unstable and self-destructive tendencies. Oh and he wouldn't help the Imperium IMO.

Rant over

Okay one more thing .... stopping voting for a rotting corpse you bunch of sissies .

I vote for Chaos Undivided.

There's nothing anyone does for one God that doesn't ultimately benefit one or two of the others. Someone massacres some people for Khorne, and enjoys it. Thus Slaanesh get's his due to some extent. Then the bodies/pieces will eventually rot, decay, bloat, so Nurgle gets his little bit. And it's more likely than not the whole matter played along to the devices of Tzeentch in some way.

So yeah.
It's a great big circle of slaughter, orgies, disease, and mind games.

You do know you are missing one god from there?
Cegorach, the laughing god. The last surviving free eldar god. The diety to which the harlequins answer. (Yes i know he is not a proper god in the sense of the others but i think to discount him as a god would be a bit harsh)
