Times have changed around Tyranitar, so if it wants to use a Stealth Rock set, it has to use this to make the most out of its great Special bulk:
-Stealth Rock
-Fire Blast/Superpower/Stone Edge
Nature: Sassy/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/4 Atk/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

If Excadrill is used in a sandstorm team, it must always use Sand Rush. Mold Breaker doesn't cut it and is preferred outside of Sand teams. Also, Excadrill is an Uber, which means it doesn't see use in OU. Jirachi can help check Ice Pokemon alongside Heatran:
-Iron Head
-Body Slam/Thunder Wave
-Fire Punch/Protect/Stealth Rock
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 HP/224 Def/32 Spe
Item: Leftovers

-Iron Head
-Fire Punch
-Ice Punch
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

-Thunder Wave/Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Fire Punch
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 80 HP/252 Atk/176 Spe
Item: Leftovers

-Iron Head
-Fire Punch
-Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Naive
EVs: 152 Atk/204 SAtk/152 Spe
Item: Expert Belt
