So, here goes.

Tyranitar as my lead to initiate sandstorm, ofc. I'm thinking Sp. wall.
Landorus as my sweeper. I think I want to run gravity, but also clueless on this.

Here's where the uncertainty begins.
Scizor as an offensive. Good to deal with those pesky ice types and a nice all around offensive OR Terrakion
Quagsire as a nice water-type to give me some variety, defense, and great typing
Gliscor as a nice physical wall and to break stall
and I need a good Sp Atk Sweep.
Heatran, Virizion or Latias seem to fit the bill for a Special Attacker quite nicely. Even though Virizion and Latias aren't immune to Sandstorm, they help check opposing sun (Latias only)/rain teams and they also cover the Fighting (Latias only) and Water weaknesses of sandstorm teams:
-Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Grass/Ice)/Dragon Pulse
-Stealth Rock
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe

or
-Lava Plume

Latias:

or
