While Sceptile can do kinda well in OU, it's somewhat frail and it can easily be revenged by Scizor. Ferrothorn can pull off a similar job that Sceptile does, only that it's slower. If you want to keep Sceptile, that's fine:
-Stealth Rock/Spikes
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip/Protect
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Infernape is a non-Uber alternative to Blaziken. It's faster too:
-Overheat/Fire Blast
-Close Combat
-Grass Knot/U-turn
-Stone Edge/Mach Punch
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Just to give Ferrothorn a bulky Water Pokemon to work with (since it works well with most Water Pokemon), you can go for Jellicent (for spinblocking) or Starmie (for fast sweeping):
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
Item: Leftovers

-Shadow Ball/Ice Beam
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/36 Def/220 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb

-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Ice Beam
-Rapid Spin/Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

-Surf/Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
Nature: Timid
EVs 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
