Any suggestions for this Smogon OU Rain-room team?

Rain-room being my product of mixing trick room with rain.

Smooth Jazz (Politoed) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Scald
- Ice Beam
- Sleep Talk
- Rest

One of my favorite Politoed sets. Scald still hits hard despite the lack of special attack EVs, and that burn chance is magical. Ice beam hits annoying dragons, grass types, and flyings. Rest-talk makes this bulky frog a behemoth in the battle fied. Scald's burn chance is also really nice.

Lucky Duck (Porygon2) @ Eviolite
Trait: Trace
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Ice Beam
- Trick Room
- Thunderbolt
- Recover

Awasome coverage. Thunderbolt > Thunder due to Thunder having that 30% paralyze chance, that can really screw me up in the rain. Bolt-beam, T-room, recover. :D

D.149 (Dragonite) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Multiscale
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SAtk
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Surf
- Hurricane
- Thunder
- Roost

Sounds really hypocritical saying that I didn't wanna run Thunder on Porygon2 because of paralyze chance and him not being as slow as he could be, but turning around and using it on D-nite. Doesn't it?

Surf and Hurricane are D-nite's main utilities. When T-room runs out, Thunder is good for paralyzing foes so D-nite can still out speed ( Now things make sense, don't they? ) roost is just awasome recovery.

Bossin' (Dusknoir) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Trick Room
- ThunderPunch
- Ice Punch
- Shadow Punch

I don't like this guy in my team very much. I've been thinking about changing the set to Shadow Punch / Pain Split, Focus Punch, Substitute, T-room. With lefties. I'd like a comment on that one for change ( whether or not )

But for now, bulky tank running T-room, STAB, and bolt-beam.

SmashRave (Reuniclus) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Thunder
- Psyshock
- Trick Room
- Hidden Power [Water]

This is one of the only pokemon in my team that I can normally say, that if I paralyze my opponent... I'm probably still going to be slow than them xD

Thunder is rain acc boosted coverage. HP Water is rain boosted coverage. Psyshock is STAB. T-room supports him and his team mates. Life orb + Magic Guard is fun fun fun.

WHALE! (Wailord) (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Water Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Water Spout
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Bug]
