Mismagius, I'm sorry to say, is a wannabe Gengar. There's nothing it can do that Gengar can't do better. Gengar's got higher Special Defense, Special Attack, and Speed, and literally the exact same movepool. So I don't think there's any reason to use it over Gengar.

EDIT: The only, only thing that Mismagius has over Gengar is Nasty Plot. (Creds to Your Worst Nightmare.) Here's a set to capitalize on that:

Mismagius @ Salac Berry
Ability: Levitate
Timid Nature
EVs: 12 HP / 244 SpA / 252 Spe
-Nasty Plot
-Shadow Ball
-Dazzling Gleam

Simple, short, and sweet. The given EVs make the Salac Berry activate after 3 Substitutes. Shadow Ball and Dazzling Gleam are unresisted bar the Litleo line. Sub when you get the chance, Nasty Plot up, and destroy.

It does have access to Nasty plot and as long as its facing a special attacker that can bulk the hits it could hit harder
Good call, forgot about Nasty Plot
