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.

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

With a bit of setting up you to could be wrecking teams with Haxorus

@Lum berry
Impish nature (+Def -Sp.Atk)
252 Def 151 Hp 106 Atk
Ability: Mold Breaker

Outrage/Dragon claw

You'll need some Baton passed stats to help this set work, preferably +2 Def and +1 Atk or more. Haxorus has a decent base defence stat of 90 so with a couple of boosts and a good move set to boot your opponent will not be your friend. The Baton passed stats are to improve Haxorus's defence to add some extra bulk. The lum berry is there to help if you've accidentally Baton passed a poison/burn etc. or your opponent is trying to confuse you or whatever. Earthquake is earthquake and there ain't no levitatin' business with his ability. Protect is for scouting out toxic stallers and a couple of other things like helping you toxic stall with Toxic! Outrage and Dragon claw are just for if you get taunted or the like.
