Hippopotas @ Eviolite
Ability: Sand Stream
Level: 5
EVs: 100 Atk / 212 Def / 180 SpD
Impish Nature
- Whirlwind
- Toxic / Slack Off
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake

Intended as a lead. Set up Stealth Rock. Toxic the Pokemon that's out. Whirlwind them away so the next Pokemon takes Stealth Rock damage. Toxic them as well. Repeat the process. Earthquake is so you're not entirely crippled by Taunt. Slack Off can be used in place of Toxic if you want to heal up instead.

Maybe slack off instead of toxic for recovery.
Good idea, edited.

Hippopotas @ Eviolite
Ability: Sand Stream
Level: 5
EVs: 100 Atk / 212 Def / 180 SpD
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Yawn
- Earthquake
- Slack Off
Explanation: First you start with Stealth Rock. Then, you use Yawn to put pressure on the opponent. Earthquake is STAB and allows you not to be Taunt bait. Slack Off can be used for if you predict a switch after you use Yawn and Stealth Rock is still on the opposing side to heal off any damage you took.
