Hippo (Hippowdon) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 92 Def / 164 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic
- Earthquake
- Slack Off

My wonderful, WONDERFUL lead. This guy is yet to be OHKO'd on my team, which is more than can be said for Tyranitar. XD
Gigaslash (Scizor) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Bug Bite
- Bullet Punch
- Swords Dance
- Superpower

He's my Scizor. I love him more and more everyday.
Terrakion @ Choice Band
Trait: Justified
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- X-Scissor
- Earthquake

Welcome to the team Terrakion! This guy is just SO powerful when banded, and I've had my fair share of sweeps using close combat.
Genie (Landorus) (M) @ Lum Berry
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- U-turn
- Superpower

The basic Landorus set. He's used to, uhh, "Clean things up" so to speak.
Slug woman (Gastrodon-East) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 104 Def / 104 SAtk / 48 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Stockpile
- Scald
- Ice Beam
- Recover

I have to thank UberPwnage for this set. Once he has his three stockpiles, status is pretty much his biggest threat.
Reuniclus (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Psychic
- Calm Mind
- Recover
- Energy Ball

Reuniclus! Welcome to the team! All of you that have read my previous RMTs know how much I love magic guard by now. This particular pokemon can take a lot of hits and cannot be chipped away at by status.

Ok, Mamoswine also takes care of my gliscor problem... Who should I take out to put in mamoswine?
I would take out Landorus, Terrakion is enough.
Reuniclus isn't really doing anything for your team, where as landorus blocks those ground type moves, so I'd get rid of reuniclus since you can always sun a special landorus.
Yeah, just another standard OU Smogon sand team, nothing to original.
Thanks for the Encouragement FT.

You wanted someone to rate.... so.... here....we....go!
Hippowdon is great, just a suggestion:

Sometimes, people start off with Skarmory as their lead. And Skarmory totally ruins this guy xP The only thing you can do it to set up Rocks, and Skarmory would have set up too, along with some Spikes. So maybe switch Earthquake with Rock Slide or something? Not needed, just a suggestion.

Other than that, Hippowdon is great.
Scizor is also great. Be wary of Fire moves.

Try switching Superpower for Quick Attck, which hits lots of Pokemon for neutral damage. Mayve you could fit Roost in there somewhere? Heals damage from Life Orb and other damage from attacks.
One comment. Try our Rock Slide instead of Stone Edge. Better accuracy, you already have a bunch of power. Not needed.

That's all. Terrakion is amazing.
Um...... Lum Berry seems pointless, IMO. Maybe replace it for the handy dandy Expert Belt?Landorus has a great movepool, so Expert Belt fits him.

I would replace Landorus for Mamoswine, no point for Landorus really, Terrakion does everything he does.
Mamoswine @ Life Orb Trait: Thick Fat / EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)

  • Ice Shard
  • Icicle Crash
  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge

Basic Mamoswine set. It's a great counter for Dragon types, especially Dragonite. Ice Shard goes first, hopefully OHKO's Dragonite. If you think you're fast enough, use Icicle Crash for more power. Earthquake for STAB, and Stone Edge is self-explanatory in sand.
Try this EV set: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 SpA

Not needed, just try it out, since protection from special grass type moves is good.
Moeset and stuff is good.
I will replace this, Reuniclus isn't doing your team any favors that I can see.

Tentacruel @ Leftovers / Trait: Clear Body / EVs: 252 HP , 240 Def , 16 Spe / Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Toxic Spikes
  • Rapid Spin
  • Scald/Surf
  • Ice Beam

Rapid Spinner. Spins away hazards while setting up Toxic Spikes. Scald or Surf for STAB. Ice Beam as another OK move :D
I know this isn't the longest RMT, but there wasn't much I would change from your team.
