Hippy (Hippowdon) (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Toxic
- Earthquake
- Slack Off
- Curse

Sets up sand. Toxic stalls non-steel types with Toxic and hit's foes that are steel with Earthquake. Counters: Skarmory ( taken care of by Magnezone ) and Gengar ( Stoutland screws him over if he goes for the Shadow Ball, which is likely )

Moustache (Stoutland) (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Frustration
- Wild Charge
- Crunch
- Ice Fang

A simple sweeper that hits like a truck.
STAB, an attempt to relive bolt-beam, and Crunch for Gengar.
Counters: Mach Punch

Space troll (Magnezone) @ Air Balloon

Trait: Magnet Pull
EVs: 40 HP / 252 SAtk / 216 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Substitute
- Volt Switch

A set straight from smogon, actually. He's a good steel trapper and killer. Takes care of things like Skarmory and Ferrothorn before they can do too much damage.
Counters: Fire types and fighting types, mainly.

Drilbur (Sandslash) (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Brick Break
- Shadow Claw

My other Sand Rush abuser. This one sets up Swords Dance and sweeps with STAB and the famous fighting + ghost coverage.
Counters: Swampert and Gastrodon having been giving me trouble when I try to stay in, but a well played Cradily switch can normally fix that.

Wiggly (Cradily) (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Recover
- AncientPower
- Energy Ball
- Hidden Power [Fire]

Switches in on a water move ( tons come at this team ) and gets her Sp ATK boost, then tanks along with Ancient Power and Energy Ball. Recover keeps her alive, and HP Fire lets her hit those annoying still types. And things like Breloom and Virizion.
Counters: Conkeldurr has hurt this thing a LOT.

gg (Haxorus) (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Mold Breaker
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- Shadow Claw
- Brick Break

He just kills stuff. Almost anything that gets the neutral Outrage hit will go down.
Counters: Steel types, which Magnezone takes care of.

Sandslash should use Stone Edge, imagine like a Zapdos or Togekiss or something similar come in.
Plus it gives great coverage with Earthquake.
Also Shadow Claw isn't very good on Haxorus it should maybe be replaced with Dragon Claw for an attack to use when you see a Steel type lurking in the team preview.
