    So if you don't wanna make major changes, what's the point of a RMT? Your team looks fine though, treehouse isn't the most prestigious place to ladder. Saying it was on smogon would be better but then you might not do as well. However, your team is based on espeon staying alive long enough to pu up both screens. Then you set up one of the five pokes and sweep. It's a good idea but if the enemy is, you know, smart, theyll use the team preview, send out their scizor or whatever and pursuit espeon to death. So you need to really predict well. Anyways, lefties on haxorus is pointless as it's defense is bad. Volcarona is in the same boat there, so you might as well use LO or drop them. You should also think about a LO on omastar and actually, you could use a lum berry on haxorus since it has outrage. Last thing is that scrafty can use drain punch for the Hp heal. That is all I have to say. There have been a lot of these moderately arrogant team posts lately. Pretty weird.

    lol you may as well just swap Scrafty with Latios so you have exactly Somalia's team rather than a near exact copy...

    Mold breaker over haxorus and trick leads ruin your dual screens and you can get better coverage with many other pokes than omastar as his ability is a waste and he's got a 4x weakness. Use sheer force nidoking timid or modest

    FIVE pokemon to set up behind screens?! I mean, if it works then great. Espeon isn't going to last long enough to set up screens more than once, twice if it's a really bad opponent. Having five different pokemon who's job is to set up and sweep behind them seems incredibly disproportionate and it doesn't help that none of them are incredibly bulky either. I'd pick the three (or even just two) that help you sweep the most and replace the rest of your sweepers with other pokemon to help them sweep/keep you from getting swept. You don't have anything to get you out of trouble should your opponent get to even +1. Heck, you can't do anything more than pray to win the speed tie against a Choice Band Haxorus and he can OHKO everyone but Scizor with just Outrage, and Scizor is still an easy 2KO. Faster threats are even worse. I really think you should try to add at least one bulky pokemon like Skarmory, Ferrothorn, or Bronzong (you could go for another dual screens set with Bronzong) and a revenge killer like Scarf Latios, Landorus, or Terrakion. But like I said, if it works, great.

    EDIT: and definitely try out Mold Breaker. Much more reliable and Bronzong won't slow you down anymore.

    I think it would help you out. If you want to build this team around sweepers setting up behind screens, I think you either need two pokemon running them or at least someone bulkier than espeon. Metagross, Kingdra, Bronzong, and Magnezone are all good choices. Magnezone would pair well with Mold Breaker Haxorus if you keep him. Skarmory and Ferrothorn are the only steels that stop/slow down Haxorus and Magnezone handles them both easily with Thunderbolt/HPFire leaving you're other two slots open for screens. Bronzong will help you more against sand since it stops Excadrill and Landorus cold. Kingdra and Metagross can still function in an offensive capacity. It really depends on what sweepers you take out and what role you want your screener to fill. If you go with Magnezone I would defintely add Scarf Latios though since he will be able to take advantage of the MIA steel types too.

    hmm, HO is using on one side of the playing field, change volc to an offensive power house like Ape and change Omastar to that rock turtle thing. Cus after you kill your opponent's only physical wall, it's game.

    edit: i believe trick gets bounced back.. i dont remmeber.

    edit2: multi scale dnite can hit hard.

    edit3: have you ever tried using Bulk Up Tornadus?

    I was going to suggest you replace Taunt with Brick Break myself but before i do, I'd like to know how you use taunt on him. Is it primarily for pokemon like Ferrothorn and Skarmory or something else?

    Haxorus is for stall breaking pokemon like blissey and other status inducers,I'll never stay in on ferrothorn or skamory when Volcarona is still alive.

    that hax set is just like gyara's taunt+DD set but with more power and less coverage.

    but once his other sweepers take out the pokes that can resist the dragon and ground combo (iirc) then hax can easily sweep.

    Hm, then I wouldn't suggest you change it then. :P
    I would just figured that most walls like Blissey would gtfo when Hax is in. But I can see it handling others like Dusclops beautifully. Nice set.
