Nature: Jolly (-SpA, +Spd)
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Hp
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf
Moves: Outrage (STAB)
Swords Dance (Buff)
Substitute/Earthquake (Set up/Coverage)
Superpower (Coverage).

I know, Superpower seems a bad move given the attack loss. However, I feel it's needed for Steel types that don't fear Earthquake (Skarmory, Forretress, Ferrothorn). Which Choice item depends on whether you think he'll need more speed or not. Substitute can allow Haxorus a turn or two of set up and let's face it a +2 or +4 Outrage or Superpower from this beast will OHKO or 2HKO pretty much anything in the game.

Ok. THIS GUY WAS SO AMAZING 4 ME!!!

Let's get to the point.

Item- Dragon fang CUZ I CAN

Physical sweeper

Ability- Mold breaker

Move set:

Dual chop- STAB, Dual chop is better than dragon claw with same power, but BREAKS THAT FOCUS SASH!

Stone edge/Brick break- Stone edge: more power, less accuracy. Brick break: less power, more accuracy. Deals with screens. Both cover for ice weakness.

Swords dance/dragon dance- Set up for sweeping. Swords dance: loads of attack!
Dragon Dance: Attack+speed. I prefer dragon dance but it's your choice.

Earthquake- ....it's earthquake. Do I have to explain it?
