Does Mismagius work well as a aweeper in OU?

If so, then what EV's should I use. If not, then who else should I use? I want a good sweeper with reliable coverage moves. I would prefer it if he was not weak to fire.
I really like ghost type sweepers. I find that they work well, but I am open to any suggestions.

Ugh, NO.
But it's amazing in UU.
There's more to the question than a simple yes or no
I might save it for when I make a NU team
It's UU. You can't use it in NU.
And that's why I commented instead of answered!
Mismagius is UU; you can't use it in NU.
ok, sorry, I thought that you said NU, not UU
Pokeslash, the almighty Mismagius is disappointed in you for doubting. Mismagius scolds those who doubt.
Sorry Mismagius..*hangs head in shame*
I just forgot to add mismagius as one of the tags
Its generally outclassed by Gengar but not many people have seen Hex use it :D

Yes it does actually. Mismagius has a great move called Nasty Plot, and coupled with it's good speed, it can be seen as a bulky alternative to Gengar.

Mismagius @ Life Orb/Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Pain Split/Thunderbolt
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Fighting]

Nasty Plot gets it's SAtk to dangerous levels, Pain Split should be used with Life Orb, or if you want extra coverage go Lefties and run Thunderbolt. Shadow Ball is STAB, and HP Fighting gets great coverage.

I used this set on this team and I loved it, as it has decent special bulk and is very unexpected.
