Well, it is hard for me to compare discs anyways, so I will just list some Gateway discs and how they flew for me.

Wizard (putter)- beaded and stable, even at higher speeds. Great for driving

Warlock (putter)- not beaded, slightly less stable at higher speeds. I have only thrown a few times.

Element (mid-range)- not beaded, neutral to understable. Great for shaping line/hyzer flips/rollers/low speed straight shots.

Sabre (fairway)- very straight fairway. It isn't overstable, but isn't very flippy either. It is about a speed 6(ish) and has nice glide.

Illusion (fairway/distance)-I do not know if it was just my two glow illusions or not but they were super stable discs. Meathookish and comfortable, they were a good utility disc.

^ Those are the only ones I have throw, with the exception of the Magic, that would be similar to your aforementioned discs. I hope that helps some. I know they have two new mid-ranges out that I have not thrown.

So maybe:

Beadless Aviar = Magic?
Rhyno = Wizard?
Roc = Warrior?
Shark = Beat Warrior?
Stingray = Beat Element?
FL = Savage?
Teebird = Apache?
Leopard = Assassin?

What I would say is the closest comparisons...
Beadless Aviar~Warlock
Rhyno~Wizard
Roc~Warrior
Shark~E-HPP Element (even a beat warrior will fade, it develops turn before losing fade)
Stingray~Beat S Element

I haven't thrown Gateway drivers enough to judge them.

Avair: Warlock
Rhyno: no real close match. Flight could be a super fresh wiz.
Roc: Karma 100 %
Shark: Scout/Mystic
Stingray: beat up element
FL: savage or blaze for shorter shots.
Teebird: apache
Leopard: sabre for sure.

My favorite gateway molds are the blaze, voodoo, sabre and apache.

I forgot about the Scout, I agree that is is close to a Shark. I don't think I have thrown a Mystic.

Stingray
FL Apache
Teebird
Leopard Sabre
