Scrafty: I'd use Ice Punch (for coverage against Gliscor and Landorus), Taunt (to ease set up) or Hi Jump Kick (for a high BP STAB, since Scrafty's STABs are nearly unresisted)

I'd use Curse or an entry hazard (Spikes or Stealth Rock) over Iron Head on Ferrothorn

Blizzard is just terrible on Gyarados due to its low Special Attack, and using Dive can make your opponent send in something resistant to Water to take the attack the next turn:
-Dragon Dance
-Stone Edge/Bounce
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

Since you have no Swift Swimmers other than Ludicolo itself (and Ludicolo in OU is rather meh), how about Politoed?:
-Surf/Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Focus Blast
-Hidden Power (Grass/Electric)
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Scarf
Ability: Drizzle

Zebstrika plain sucks in OU; try out Thundurus:
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Nasty Plot
-Taunt/Thunder Wave
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Gliscor could be a bit bulkier, and your current set is a bit gimmicky at best:
-Swords Dance
-Ice Fang/Facade
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe
Item: Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
