    There're no "best" entry hazard setter because it all depends on if it fits your team well. Offensively, I prefer cacturne and glalie. Yes, glalie. Glalie is a very underrated poke, and with access to explosion and blizzard as well as spikes, glalie is a very good "suicide" hazard setter that can also fire off some blizzards.

    Defensively speaking, garbordor is the premier hazard setter, due to its decent defenses, access to a plethora of support moves(including spikes and t-spikes), and okay poison typing. Some other nfe spikers can also work, but they're mostly outclassed by Garbo.

    An interesting aspect about hazards in NU is that almost nobody uses a spinner(cough ANGRY SNOWFLAKE cough) because all of them are terrible and have no recovery(outside of the "nerfed" rest). The most popular spinner, armaldo, is weak to Sr and is affected by spikes and tspikes. With a couple of good predictions and forcing it out, you won't need a spinblocker because most STAB attacks can ko it after two switch ins to sr.
    So yeah, go hazards :]
    Hax is supposed to happen. Scald has a 100% burn rate(willowisp w/ perfect accuracy); paralysis has a 75% chance of kicking in; Rock slide misses more than stone edge; Hustle= 50% more power at the cost of 100% accuracy.
    I get haxed a lot and the hax gods who are the gods of hax hate me I'm sad :[
