Kyurem @ Life Orb
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Ice Beam
- Earth Power
- Flash Cannon

Or:

Dragonite @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Dragon Pulse
- Focus Blast
- Fire Blast

Replace Flash Cannon with Hidden Power [Fire]. Make Kyurem Timid and Give it 252 Spe instead of HP. :P
And for Dragonite replace Focus Blast with STAB Hurricane. Fire Blast is better at taking out Ice types

oh man well lets take a look I will not be modifying anything I'm choosing based on what you gave us

WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMDN TO THE FIRST EVER STATS! BATTLE!

In are first round we will be comparing typing

C'mon its a sweep D-man's got it locked down Kyurem is an ice-dragon... need I say more? (and lets say you did splice it you still have the worst type of all time to deal with)

moveset wise nah I'm not liking Kyurem, It's not a team player! all those moves are to cover up its own VERY exposed hide. And again speed comes in but pff wow could Kyurem get sweeped, A Jolly Garchomp could put that thjng to sleep so fast especially again with life orb. Personally I think life orb should only be used on speedy mixed or reg. sweepers to put that extra power in there to make sure they really go down

I meanI'm digging Pressure and Roost but thats about it and I already discussed Dragonite for you in your previous questionso you know all the facts there I mean base stats wise they're pretty matched but overall I'm gonna go ahead and give this one to dragonite

(Now splicing along with a new moveset now thats a different story that I could give you in the comments if you would like)
You shouod still just stick with a Goat for OU freakin wreck them

I think Kyurem-Black performs much better than Dragonite in OU. :P

I mean, look at their usage differences:

 > | 37   | Kyurem-Black       |  5.08207% | 170155 |  5.272% | 127251 |  5.128% |

>  | 79   | Dragonite          |  1.12813% | 140096 |  4.340% | 100261 |  4.040% |

Btw, Kyurem-B is usually used as a fast mixed sweeper with Fusion Bolt, but Ed doesn't want 2 mixed sweepers on his team. And a Life Orb is common on offensive Pokémon in general. :P
Ik! KB is an amazing Life orb choice and totally takes the cake when it comes to this. Although personally I'm also allergic to ice types lol. I just can't pretend like they're not bad and using one feels like a violation of that principle.
Ice type itself isn't bad, game freak just make a Lot of slow, defensive Ice types when Ice is a great offensive type and a Phenomenal coverage type. :P

Weavile, Kyurem-B & W, Alolan Ninetails, and Cloyster are probably the only good Ice Types. :P
