Btw, I thought Garchomp was Uber Trachy,

http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/garchomp
First off, that was Gen IV smogon, not Gen V. Second, Garchomp was never Uber according to database tiers.
Ok try Hidden Power Rock instead for serperior because it cavers all except poison so it could give you an edge .

Ok thats all I got,other than that your team is perfect man.
No wonder its trachy !!
Serperior is my lead. HP Fire takes down some common leads like Forretress, Ferrothorn, etc.
Is mienshao overused, becuse I coudnt find its tier on smogon

Conkeldurr should have Earthquake instead of mach punch because you do not need two fighting moves. Cofagrigus can just use Psychic instead of power share so you can hurt normal types. that is all great team : )

Why would you add Psychic on Cofagrigus, it isn't capable of sweeping or using Sweeping moves. Plus can't you see what Trachy is doing, so Conkeldurr needs no change. This should be improved or turned into a comment.
Mach Punch provides much needed priority to Conkeldurr. Drain Punch heals up Conkeldurr's burn damage.
i like the orb idea, but doesnt burns hurt attack? ik toxic damage can easily chip away alot, but is it really worth it?
The ability guts prevents the lowered attack you'd get from burn.
thanks! just read on bulbapedia, and it does negate the drop.

Giga Drain and Leaf Storm? I see what you're trying to do, but just...No. Serperior should be using that slot for coverage or an actual utility. I like the addition of Taunt, though, so maybe try something like Gastro Acid or an offensive utility like Dragon Tail. You'd likely find yourself in less pinches with one of these two moves.

Everything else is pretty solid, though, and I see no issues otherwise! You've got a solid team with some serious flexibility. Most of these Pokemon are fast and hit hard, and you have a mixed team that can be switched around to deal with any weather or hazard. It's pretty risk-free, if you ask me.
