I would think Adamant that boosts Attack and lowers the Special Attack. That's because it's moveset and stats is more for Physical attacks. So Adamant + Stab Crunch is OHKO Ghost/Psychic types. And Drain Punch is awesome! So Adamnt nature with it's good bulk.

  • Dragon Dance
  • Knock Off
  • High Jump Kick / Drain Punch
  • Ice Punch / Iron Head
    Item Attached: Life Orb / Lum Berry
    Ability: Moxie
    EVs and Nature:
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature

The old standard Scrafty set makes a return. While Scrafty is by no means bad it took a Fairy to the knee harder than any Dragon ever did. The idea of this set is pretty simple. Dragon Dance then sweep. Scrafty is slow but after a dance it outruns the base 111s which is just barely enough to make it useful. Knock Off was buffed since last gen and is now effectively a 97 base power move against something with an item (which is everything in competitive battling). High Jump Kick helps make up for Scrafty's mediocre Attack stat. It hits approximately as hard as Tyranitar's Stone Edge which is nothing to laugh at. If you want to improve your longevity you can also run Drain Punch but the power drop is immense. Ice Punch wipes out Gliscor and Landorus while Iron Head helps you beat damaged Fairies. DD Scrafty is a decent Pokemon that is sort of beat down by what the metagame has become. Its stats are okay and movepool is amazing but it gets countered hard by something pretty much no matter what it runs in the final slot

I got this from Serebii and it was really helpful for me.There are other options there that you should check out.

Hope I helped!
