I already have this as my team:
Emboar (2nd starter)

I'm wondering, do I use an Ice type like Mamoswine, a Dragon type like Garchomp or Flygon, or a Grass type?

What should I do? Please help!

Why do you have two Magnezones?
i meant to say skamory
You should use Kyogre because it has good stats.
i don't have access to kyogre

I had say that you should use Garchomp (Flygon is statistically worse), as it is extremely useful to defeat Ghetsis and N. They are your main threat. Although Krookodile can learn Dragon Claw, it can't outspeed his Hydreigon and Zekrom. Type overlap doesn't matter here, as only Vanilluxe threatens them (you have Emboar to defeat that, right?). Your Steel typing has already overlapped, so it doesn't matter.
Or you could choose Haxorus. It can even take care of his Seismitoad using Grass Knot (approximately 60 SpA stat + 4x weakness = 120 SpA stat + 2x weakness).

Garchomp @ anything.
Ability: Sand Veil
- Dragon Claw / Dragon Rush
- Dig / Earthquake
- Crunch
- Rock Slide / Stone Edge

Haxorus @ anything
Ability: Rivalry / Mold Breaker (latter is preferred, it can demolish Eelectross)
- Dragon Claw
- Swords Dance / X-Scissor
- Earthquake
- Grass Knot

Hope this helps :)

This is Black, not Black 2.
Then how did the asker get Skarmory, Magnezone and asking if Garchomp or flygon be used? They are all in Black-2. Probably he/she traded? I'll edit it slightly, thanks.
How did he get an Emboar? It's probable he traded. Both the tags and the question itself says Black, not Black 2.
i want to have a creative team
So go with Garchomp (I think you meant that you wouldn't use the mons you already used previously, and you used Haxorus previously.

Mamoswine and garchomp and flygon overlap with krookodile, a ghost type like gengar or Jellicent will be useful imo( mainly gengar)

Gengar @ anything
shadow ball(stab)
sludge bomb(stab)
Focus blast/hp fighting
Destiny bond

Why Jellicent when TC already has both a Samurott and a Krookodile?
They have two fighting weaknesses and the only one to have a super effective stab is neutral.

I think Sawsbuck is a good, if slightly unconventional choice. Its Grass STAB hits quite a few Pokemon hard, including N's Carracosta and Ghetsis' Seismitoad. Its Normal STAB also hits quite a few Pokemon for solid neutral damage. It also gets Jump Kick and Wild Charge, further allowing it to dish out powerful hits.

Sawsbuck @ anything
Ability: Sap Sipper
- Horn Leech
- Take Down / Double-Edge / Return
- Jump Kick
- Wild Charge

Hope I helped!
