There's no such thing as a "mixed-tier team". By regular standards, this is an OU team, due to Gastrodon's presence. OU Pokemon are not allowed in UU or below.

Gastrodon needs the coverage of Earth Power or Earthquake to be effective:
-Earthquake/Earth Power
-Scald
-Ice Beam/Toxic
-Recover
Nature: Relaxed/Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain

Muk is outclassed by a lot of Poison Pokemon in OU. Sure, it has a wide movepool, but it lacks the Speed to truly abuse it. Better Poison Pokemon to use are Crobat, Tentacruel, Gengar and Scolipede:

Crobat:
-Brave Bird
-Defog
-Roost
-Taunt/Toxic
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 168 HP/136 Atk/4 SDef/200 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Infiltrator

Tentacruel:
-Scald
-Sludge Bomb
-Rapid Spin
-Toxic/Knock Off/Toxic Spikes
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/224 Def/32 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Liquid Ooze

Gengar:
-Shadow Ball
-Sludge Bomb/Thunderbolt
-Focus Blast
-Destiny Bond
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Focus Sash

or
-Substitute
-Shadow Ball
-Disable/Will-o-Wisp/Pain Split
-Will-o-Wisp/Pain Split/Focus Blast
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Black Sludge/Life Orb

or
-Shadow Ball
-Sludge Bomb
-Focus Blast
-Trick/Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

Scolipede:
-Megahorn
-Spikes/Toxic Spikes
-Swords Dance/Toxic Spikes
-Baton Pass/Earthquake/Rock Slide
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost

Personally, I think that Mega Houndoom should be used in sun teams. This team isn't one. Potential replacements are Darmanitan, Heatran, Talonflame, Charizard (both Megas) and Volcarona. Since three of these Pokemon are Stealth Rock-weak, Rapid Spin/Defog support is recommended:

Darmanitan:
-Flare Blitz
-U-turn
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake/Superpower
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Sheer Force

or
-Flare Blitz
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake/Superpower
-Superpower/Earthquake/U-turn
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Choice Band
Ability: Sheer Force

Heatran:
-Lava Plume
-Protect
-Roar/Earth Power
-Toxic/Will-o-Wisp/Stealth Rock
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/8 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Stealth Rock/Hidden Power (Ice)
-Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Fire Blast
-Flash Cannon
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Flamethrower
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
Ability: Flash Fire

or
-Magma Storm
-Toxic
-Protect
-Taunt
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flash Fire

Talonflame:
-Swords Dance
-Flare Blitz
-Brave Bird
-Roost
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Sharp Beak/Sky Plate
Ability: Gale Wings

or
-Flare Blitz
-Brave Bird
-U-turn
-Tailwind/Roost
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Sharp Beak/Sky Plate
Ability: Gale Wings

or
-Bulk Up
-Brave Bird
-Roost
-Taunt/Substitute
Nature: Careful
EVs: 248 HP/184 Def/76 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Gale Wings

Charizard X:
-Dragon Dance
-Flare Blitz/Fire Punch
-Dragon Claw/Outrage
-Earthquake/Roost/Swords Dance
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Charizardite X
Ability: Blaze

or
-Fire Punch/Earthquake
-Dragon Tail
-Will-o-Wisp
-Roost
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 248 HP/84 SDef/176 Spe
Item: Charizardite X

EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Charizardite Y

Volcarona:
-Quiver Dance
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Hidden Power (Rock/Ground)/Psychic/Giga Drain
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry
Ability: Flame Body

or
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Roost
Nature: Timid
EVs: 240 HP/252 Def/16 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body

Assault Vest prevents Aggron from using status moves like Stealth Rock. If you didn't opt for the Mega Charizards, stick to Mega Aggron only, as its weaknesses aren't as crippling when it has the Filter ability and a pure Steel typing:
-Stealth Rock
-Iron Head/Heavy Slam
-Thunder Wave/Ice Punch
-Earthquake/Rock Slide
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/16 Def/240 SDef
Item: Aggronite
Ability: Sturdy

or
-Rest
-Sleep Talk
-Iron Head/Heavy Slam
-Earthquake/Ice Punch
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/16 Def/240 SDef
Item: Aggronite
Ability: Sturdy

If you did opt for either one of the Megazards, Ferrothorn or Skarmory are good substitutes:

Ferrothorn:
-Stealth Rock/Spikes
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip/Protect
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell/Rocky Helmet
Ability: Iron Barbs

Skarmory:
-Roost
-Whirlwind
-Stealth Rock/Spikes/Brave Bird
-Defog/Brave Bird
Nature: Bold/Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef or 252 HP/16 Def/240 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Rocky Helmet
Ability: Sturdy

or
-Spikes
-Roost
-Whirlwind
-Taunt/Brave Bird
Nature: Bold/Impish
EVs: 252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy

There are better Ghost Pokemon out there than Drifblim. Jellicent, Trevenant and Gourgeist those Pokemon, as well as Gengar (already mentioned above):

Jellicent:
-Scald/Shadow Ball
-Will-o-Wisp
-Recover
-Taunt
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/172 Def/84 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb/Cursed Body

or

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb/Cursed Body

Gourgeist (Super Size):
-Will-o-Wisp
-Leech Seed
-Seed Bomb

Trevenant:

Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/180 Def/76 Spe
Item: Sitrus Berry
Ability: Harvest

There are better Grass Pokemon out there than Leafeon. See above for Ferrothorn, Trevenant and Gourgeist. I could suggest Mega Venusaur, but your Mega slot may be already taken. In addition to the above Grass Pokemon, consider Breloom, Tangrowth and Chesnaught:

Breloom:
-Spore/Force Palm
-Bullet Seed

Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe

Item: Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal

Tangrowth:
-Leaf Storm/Giga Drain
-Knock Off
-Earthquake
-Hidden Power (Fire/Ice)/Rock Slide

You can't do a mixed tier team on Showdown. If this is for Battle Spot, then you can do that.

This team isn't for Showdown, it's for playing over wifi. I know there isn't actually a "mixed tier" but I like to play with Pokemon that I like, not pokemon people think are good. That's why I put the title as Mixed Tier, since I'm using a mix of pokemon from different tiers. I posted this thread in order to see what other people though of the team itself, it's synergy and the movesets I have.

As for Mega Houndoom, I feel that with Nasty Plot it can function just fine on almost any kind of team. Besides, since Leafeon has Sunny Day it's still a semi-sun team. And I realize I'm going to have to change Stealth Rock for something else, I forgot Assault Vest meant no status moves. I will substitute it for either Double-Edge, Superpower, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, or Dragon Tail. Not sure yet.

If someone could give their opinion on the synergy of the pokes and not take any poke out that would be awesome.

Mega Houndoom should use Taunt in the last slot to prevent walls from setting up on it.

If you're not using Mega Aggron for whatever reason at all, just stick to Choice Band Head Smashes:
-Head Smash
-Heavy Slam/Iron Head
-Earthquake
-Fire Punch/Aqua Tail
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 116 HP/252 Atk/140 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Rock Head

Unburden is the best way to use Drifblim to compensate for its average Speed:
-Calm Mind
-Shadow Ball
-Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Fighting)
-Rest/Substitute
Nature: Modest
EVs: 20 HP/252 SAtk/236 Spe
Item: Chesto Berry/Sitrus Berry
Ability: Unburden
