Thank you for your suggestions,(In the point now :p)
I dont really want to waste a hidden power[ice] to this guy, I can take on Gliscor with my Gliscor(most ppl out there care only earthquake in him), or Hydro Pump him to death with my Rotom-W.. I think I have enough coverages for Gliscor!

-Earth Power/Earthquake
-Scald/Ice Beam
Nature: Calm/Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain

There's also another Pokemon you can consider using in place of Swampert, and that's Ferrothorn. It can set up hazards, plus it has one of the best defensive typings ever created. Plus, it works well with and against Water Pokemon:
-Spikes/Stealth Rock
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip/Protect
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers
I tried Gastrodon before and didnt like him much. The thing is I wanted kinda my "lead" play as a Sp.Wall later on... So I tried For him sth like 252hp/252Sp.D/4Sp.A (With the moves you said)
I hate ferrothorn I just don't like him when I see him(is that bad?) And only alakazam can easily kill him,but I never thought of using him on my team, So that's maybe a good idea to try

EVs: 240 HP/216 Def/52 SDef
Item: Leftovers
And I kinda used that build already diverse Sp.D-Def tho

I might try Ferrothorn, thank you for your suggestions you were very helpful!

Toxic and Aerial Ace are also good options, since the former can hit stuff like Rotom-W and Tornadus that commonly switch in on Gliscor and allow you to stall them out quicker, while Aerial Ace can allow Gliscor to function as a hard counter to BU Breloom. Anyways, I can see this team having a bit of trouble against Blizzspam teams with Abomasnow and Kyurem, since Rotom-W fears strong Draco Meteors and Wood Hammers, while nothing else can switch in on Blizzard. I think you could potentially try a Specially Defensive Heatran in Swampert's place, since it can lay SR, wall special threats and function as a great counter to hail and sun.

Heatran (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 248 SDef / 8 Spd
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Flamethrower
- Roar / Protect
- Stealth Rock
- Will-O-Wisp / Toxic
Yeah that's true if a blizzard team set up even a little it can own my team easily...The only way I could beat a blizzard is that my alakazam set up some CCs but even then most teams have 2members with priority ice shard move(+STAB) that could 2HKO Alakazam or even OHKO him. If Alakazam was dead it wa spretty much gg...
I might try Heatran too as a Lead/Sp.Wall and also the changes of Gliscor might also help ty for your suggestions too
I will Edit the changes of my team in the first post after I decide....
I would like to hear some more suggestions so, I'm waiting too
