I think Dragonite could be better off with this set so it can attack from both sides of the offensive spectrum:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
Nature: Quiet
EVs: 252 Atk/252 SAtk/4 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus

TBH, Magmortar isn't good in OU. Infernape is faster and has just as good as a movepool as Magmortar does:
-Overheat/Fire Blast/Flamethrower
-Close Combat
-Grass Knot/U-turn
-Stone Edge/Mach Punch
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

For Blissey, don't use Healing Wish at all, since it wastes its defensive capabilities by KOing itself. Use Softboiled instead. Use this EV spread: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef with a Bold nature.

Seviper is absolute Taunt bait and is best in the lower tiers, where it can abuse its good offensive movepool. If you want something that can Trick away a Choice item, use Rotom-W:
-Thunderbolt/Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

Despite Shuckle's massive defenses, it doesn't have useful resistances to take advantage of. Ferrothorn has a better defensive typing and decent defenses:
-Spikes (you have Blissey to use Stealth Rock anyway)
-Leech Seed
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
-Power Whip/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Edit: Icicle Crash is illegal on Thick Fat Mamoswine, so you're better off using Snow Cloak as its ability. Also, use Life Orb or Choice Band as the item.
