Guard split definitely. Guard Swap only swaps stat changes(which hypothetically could end up lowering your own stats if you used Energy ball on them and lowered their S.Defense). Guard Split can make you bulky and wrecks the opponent. Though on that set I would switch Venoshock for either Focus-blast or Hidden-power(Fighting or Fire) because you already cover Grass types with Bug-buzz and with out it you are wall by Steel. Also maybe Giga-drain instead of Energy ball, with Guard split the healing can come in handy.

No problem.
If you were wondering, the move to comepletely swap stats is called `wonder room`. it would be great if accelgor could learn it but even in black 2 it cant be taught by move tutor
