Please feel free to comment with any suggestion. I would like a hazard setter for my team though I am unsure of which one suits it.

Your team is weak to a number of typings:
Rock, Ice, Dark and Ghost. Not to mention all of these a huge weaknesses as they are almost unresisted by your team and hit a lot quite hard. Rock weakness means Stealth Rock weakness as well to compliment that.

This team will require a pretty big replacement for some pokemon.

There are a few big changes that should be made to this team, I will go through all of your pokemon:
Alakazam, if you are using speed I might take out psyshock and give it trick. Then switch it's item to either a flame orb, toxic orb or a choice item.

Gliscor, why do you have both protect and substitute? You only need one, I would do substitute and then give it roost. Also instead of earthquake give it something that can hit everything, I would recommend Poison Jab.

Gengar, Why don't you have curse? I would give it curse instead of Dazzling Gleam.

Aegislash, Why don't you use a weakness policy? Change the set to look like this:
Aegislash @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Stance Change
EV's: 252 Def, 252 Sp. Def. 4 HP
Swords Dance
King's Shield
Sacred Sword
Shadow Sneak
This set works very well. You can get at least 1 swords dance in and if they hit you super effectively you get x3 attack. Then you can use shadow sneak and ko them.

Salamence, I wouldn't use Salamence. He has a x4 weakness to ice and their are a lot of fairy types running around pss. I would recommend using a Cloyster. Make his set look like this:
Cloyster @ White Herb
Ability: Skill link
EV's: 252 speed, 252 attack 4 HP
Shell Smash
Ice Shard
Icicle Spear
You have no set-up pokemon on your team and need at least one. This is a fast set up pokemon that can help your team.

Togekiss, you want a hazard setter? Well I would replace togekiss. You can use 2 different pokemon as hazard setter's Galvantula with sticky web or Forretress with spikes, stealth rocks and toxic spikes. I will give a moveset for both of them:
Galvantula @ Focus Sash
Ability: Swarm
EV's 252 att 252 speed 4 def
Sticky Web
Thunder Wave
Sucker Punch
Furry Cutter

Forretress @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
EV's: 252 speed 252 Defense 4 Sp Def
Toxic Spikes
Stealth Rocks

I hope this Helps!

Curse on Gengar absolutely sucks.
I see no reason to use Surf on Cloyster when it gets Razor Shell :P
Also, after your corrections, this team still ends up being weak to ground, fire, dark and ghost. I think all of them are (maybe not fire) pretty major weaknesses.
Also Curse works on just about no ghost pokemon, none of them want to five up half their HP for damage which can easily be shed off when it goes down.
