Stoutland is awesome on my sand team:

Stoutland @ Choice Band
Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature

- Return
- Fire Fang
- Wild Charge
- Superpower

With a good base 100 Attack and doubled speed in sand, Stoutland is a very good revenge killer in sand. Return is the main STAB move and puts a serious dent in anything that does not resist it. Fire Fang threatens Ferrothorn and Forretress, Wild Charge OHKOes Gyarados and 2HKOes Skarmory and Jellicent, and Superpower is for Rock-types and Steel-types not mentioned above. The Smogon website says Crunch should be used over Fire Fang, but I personally prefer Fire Fang because Gengar does not enjoy Wild Charge anyway, Jellicent is weak to it, Sableye is neutral to it and the rest of the ghost-types are not common in OU. The only use Crunch would have is if I'm fighting a Golurk, which is very rare.
