I think if you want to have an annoying Serperior set you might want to ditch the TrickScarf part and rather go with a SubCoil set with Glare. You boost Serperior's defenses while paralyzing everything and phazing them with Dragon Tail, spreading paralysis really easily which is always helpful for any team. You could try out the set:


Serperior @ Leftovers
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
- Substitute
- Coil
- Dragon Tail
- Glare

If you have any trouble with other movesets or want to test something new out, don't be afraid to post!
Is all that investment in SPE really necessary? Serperior runs base 113, paralysis, and the only attacking move you propose has -6 priority. Might be nice to pull off +50% DEF on the fly to soak up more of an attack, or summon a Sub, but it also lacks recovery to abuse the SPE. After you're set up and done Parashuffling, you're pretty much not using that SPE stat anyway.
