At a quick glance:

Into the microscope:

Quagsire (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Damp
EVs: 232 HP / 24 Def / 252 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Sandstorm
- Curse
- Earthquake
- Ice Punch
This is a pokemon I've seen others use, it's a pretty good wall, not sure if I have a good set though. Sandstorm is to start the sandy weather and earthquake is for STAB. Ice punch gives it good coverage against grass type leads.

Relicanth (F) @ Choice Band
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Rock Slide
- Aqua Tail
- Earthquake
- Head Smash
Relicanth gets a big boost from Rock Head. It's able to spam Head smash. Rock Slide> Stone Edge due to accuracy. Aqua Tail is a good move as a STAB attack. Earthquake is just a good strong damage dealing attack.

Camerupt (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Solid Rock
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Mild Nature (+SAtk, -Def)
- Explosion
- Earth Power
- Flamethrower
- Stone Edge
I want to see how this will work. Explosion is if it's low health. Earth Power as a strong move that it can use+STAB. Flamethrower is another STAB move while Stone Edge is used as a strong attack (again lolo).

Rhyperior (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Solid Rock
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stone Edge
- Sandstorm
- Hammer Arm
- Earthquake
Stone Edge can cover against Staraptor and sandstorm is just if sandstorm runs out again. Hammer Arm and Earthquake are strong moves it can use.

Torterra (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 136 HP / 96 Atk / 112 Def / 164 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Protect
- Wood Hammer
- Toxic
- Leech Seed
It's crazy how well this guy can wall. Once Leech Seed and Toxic are up the opponent's a goner. Wood Hammer so after protect it isn't completely worthless.

Cradily (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Suction Cups
EVs: 4 HP / 52 Atk / 252 Def / 200 SDef
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Protect
- Curse
- Sandstorm
- Rock Slide
This guy is a bewast wall just like Torterra. Curse so Rock Slide can get stronger and more monstrous defense. Protect can give it a turn to heal with leftovers. Sandstorm is just to set up again.

Win-tie-lose ratio

Sandstorm doesn't last long and is a big waste. Just use Hippopotas if you want a Sandstorm team.

Also, you should test a team before posting a RMT. It's not a rule of the forum but you really should do it anyway since it's much easier to fix mistakes yourself after seeing flaws. One battle is not enough testing usually.
Gone with the wind. (But still hanging around because why not?)

~wolf: defeated every lead except elf :>
d_a-bread house: what about metagross
~wolf: ok that too
