With Substitute this thing wants Poison Heal, and Sand Veil just relies on hax anyways. Flight Gem is meh imo, especially if you're SDing anyways. I'd just go with a Toxic Orb and Poison Heal instead. Though of course you're free to make your own choice, they both work.

As for the Ttar set, well, I really don't think having Spikes on this team would do you any good, so running SR on this instead just seems like wasting a perfectly good sweeper imo. Besides, Rotom-W takes care of Gliscor all day.

But again, it's all up to you, just giving plenty of input for you to make your decisions from.
