n almost every situation, it's better to max HP than to split between each defensive stat. 252 HP EVs are indeed slightly less effective than 252 Def EVs at blocking physical attacks (or 252 SpD EVs for special attacks), but HP EVs affect *both* stats, which makes them almost universal on defensive Pokemon.
also muscle band isnt good. Why dont you have roost to?
It is 252 defense EVs because of body press
then run max hp max defense

I dont believe Corviknight can learn defog
Corviknight gets Defog as an egg move.
This website states "Egg moves: Corviknight does not learn any moves by breeding in Pokémon Sword & Shield."

Edit: I checked Rookidee and it states that it is an egg move. Apologies for the confusion

Is SpD special defense or speed
Sp. Def. Speed is usually "Spe" in showdown formatting.

Also, not bad.

Corviknight @ leftovers
Ability: Mirror Armor
Nature: Naive/Timid(whichever one you want)
EVs: 252 HP/ 4Atk/ 252 Speed
Roost/U-Turn: Roost can help with the leftovers/ U-Turn can allow you to run away when weak
Iron Head/Flash Cannon: These moves are good STAB's, but I chose flash cannon because it has a 10% chance of lowering the opposing Pokemon Special Defense by 1 stage
Brave Bird: STAB and roost plus the leftovers will help you
Bulk-up: To help raise stats

by
why flash cannon when the special defense drop doesn't even matter and it has 53 base special attack
You're right, I changed it like a day after

Corviknight@Expert Belt? Or maybe a Sharp Beak.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Sp. Attack), Impish (+Defense, -Sp. Attack), or Jolly (+Speed, -Sp. Attack)
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Defense/Speed, 6 Defense/Speed
Trait: Mirror Armor (Preferred) or Pressure

Moves:

Steel Wing or Iron Head: Both are STAB. Iron Head has a greater Base Power, and can cause the target to flinch. Steel Wing has a slightly lower Base Power, and may increase the users Defense by one stage
Iron Defense: Increases Corviknight's Defense by 2 stages.
Body Press: the higher the Defense of the user, the more damage it does. Corviknight has high Defense, and it can be increased by Steel Wing and Iron Defense.
Drill Peck or Brave Bird: both are STAB. Brave Bird has a higher Base Power, but has recoil damage (1/3 of the damage done to the opponent is dealt to the user). Drill Peck has a lower Base power than Brave Bird, and has no effects (other than being able to hit any Pokemon on the field in a Triple/Double battle, but Brave Bird can do the same)

flying gem is not in sword and shield
why is mirror armor preferred when pressure is 10x better
Okay, I don't play sword and shield, so whoops on my part. And Mirror Armor in my opinion is a better choice because instead of Corviknight's stats being lowered, it's opponents stats drop, witch can be very use. I do agree that pressure is a really good ability, but I think that Mirror Armor is the better choice.
They're both great abilities. Also, mirror Armour makes mystical fire users weaker every turn
