Well, if you are running Adamant, then the obviosu choice is to fully train in attack EVs (252 EVs). The second lot of EVs realy depends on the given set. However, I prefer bulky, becuase without choice scarf it really isn't out speeding much.

Craindos @ Evilote / Life Orb
Trait: Mold Breaker
Admandt Nature
Evs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Sdef

  • Head Smash / stone edge
  • Zen Headbutt
  • Earthquake
  • Pursuit

This set makes Crain very bulky. That means it an survive a very large amount of hits before hitting back with an immesncely powerful Head smash. If you hate the recoil, Stone edge gives a good power alternative, but still nto as much as head mash. It also has a higher chance of missing.

Hope I helped xD

Thanks a lot  I appreciate the response ill get right on it
