Thought I'd have a go at this. Its NB, OU and Sandstorm based. Struggling for a special sponge though. Anyway, here it is:

________________________________________

Tyranitar (M) @ Leftovers ** Bangirasu ;248;
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 68 Spd / 190 SAtk
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Crunch
- Focus Punch
- Substitute
- Thunderbolt
Standard Boah, in first position to get the Sandstorm up. Not much else to say.

Aerodactyl (M) @ Choice Band ** Dämonvogel ;142;
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Aerial Ace
- Earthquake
- Hidden Power [Bug]
- Rock Slide
A choice bander Aerodactyl. Slight difference from the standard set with HP Bug I think, but I find it useful.
Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers ** Skarmour ;227;
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 196 HP / 62 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Drill Peck
- Rest
- Roar
- Spikes
My physical wall. As far as I know the standard set.
Claydol @ Leftovers ** Nendooru ;344;
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 176 HP / 100 Atk / 90 SAtk / 144 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam
- Rapid Spin
- Rest
This needs fixing, I need a special sponge, and this has the 3rd highest Sp.Defense of Sandstorm resistant Pokémon (the better being Shuckle and Registeel). Its also a Rapid Spinner, and I tried to Sp.Defense-ificate the Standard set, perhaps badly.

Cacturne (M) @ Leftovers ** Noctus ;332;
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 38 HP / 220 Spd / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Hidden Power
- Ingrain
- Needle Arm
- Thunderpunch
[I]My Special Sweeper. Almost certainly needs fixing.
Magneton @ Leftovers ** Lodestone ;082;
Trait: Magnet Pull
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SAtk / 6 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Hidden Power
- Metal Sound
- Reflect
- Thunderbolt
[I]Almost certain this is a long way from standard, but it works pretty well for me. I reflect straight away so when the inevitable Earthquake gets switched in, I can pseudo-pass. Metal Sound is suprisingly effective, most people underestimate a (372 Sp.Attack STABed Thunderbolt)*2, and don't bother to switch.

Rate away!

Seems okay, but my "weak to Kyogre" sense is tingling.
