I second this. Hydreigon can always switch to counteract Draco Meteor's Special Attack drop.

Also, what are the natures of your Pokemon?

Hydreigon should be Modest

Infernape should be Jolly

Jellicent should be Calm, given its current EV spread

Ferrothorn should be Relaxed

Mamoswine should be Adamant

Tornadus should be Timid

Now for the sets.

Stone Edge over ThunderPunch on Infernape since the latter seems to be strictly for Gyarados only. Use Flare Blitz and Close Combat as your remaining options.

Change Jellicent's EV spread to 252 HP/36 Def/220 SDef so that it has a bit of an easier time taking physical hits. Use Will-o-Wisp or Toxic over Shadow Ball or Ice Beam to support the team with status.

While Ferrothorn is a decent Curser, it's still vulnerable to Fire moves and needs a lot of support to function well. If you're using Curse, you should give it a Sassy nature because Curse will already take care of its physical stats. It should also use a more specially defensive spread with max HP and close to max Special Defense with the rest thrown in Defense. Also, this set should be used:
-Spikes/Stealth Rock
-Leech Seed
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
-Power Whip/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Mamoswine should use max Speed rather than max HP so that it can set up SR more easily against slower opponents.

Don't use Psychic on Tornadus; it doesn't give noteworthy coverage. Also, Rain Dance messes up with Infernape's Fire STAB. Outside of Rain, this should be used. This set can be used with both of its formes:
-Bulk Up
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Flying Gem
