Its a bit ambitious set with caly
I normally run -
Calyrex-Shadow @ Life Orb
Ability: As One (Spectrier)
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Substitute
- Astral Barrage
- Taunt
- Draining Kiss

Also I feel Automize would be better for Necrozma since its not gonna outspeed major threats like Caly or Assurance Zacian or be able to safely take out foul play yveltal. Also take out knock off and Give it Sunsteel Strike.

If someone sets up Rocks or Spikes though not a threat could be a nuisance so maybe get a deffoger?

Also you didnt give it Behemoth blade?? Why? Its its best Stab move and does major damage to anything. A 4HKO to a defensive Necrozma Dusk Mane.

Why Taunt? Also a 4OHKO to defensive NDM shouldn't be taken into account since it can Morning Sun the damage back. Automize NDM lacks Power, since opponent always won't gonna bring Caly or Sword Dog to NDm. Regardless, it can't survive Foul Play from Yveltal.
252+ Atk Dark Aura Yveltal Foul Play vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Prism Armor Necrozma-Dusk-Mane: 316-375 (94.3 - 111.9%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO
(252+ Atk is of NDM. Foul play takes targets Atk into damage calculation.)

Your team’s Zacian-C needs to have access to behemoth blade, and doesn’t need access to physic fangs because it’s already got coverage against fighting through play rough. Your Necrozma-DM shouldn’t run photon geyser because it’s a physical attacker. Your Calyrex shadow shouldn’t run leech seed because it dose the have use substitute and is going to be a special sweeper. Also, your team uses to life orbs which is banned in Smogon.
I hope this helped!

Nowhere does it say that Gen 8 Ubers enforces Item Clause. Therefore, two Life Orbs is perfectly acceptable.
Also Photon Geyser Is dependent on which attack stat it uses. If the users attack stat is more than the Sp. Atk stat (including Stat Changes), It turns into a Physical attack.
