      an Accelgor lead works best with Spikes, Focus Sash, Bug Buzz, Focus Blast, (idr 4th move halp). i would use that over Specs.

      Ferrothorn should not be stalling with Rest and Toxic. I would prefer the following set:

      Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
      Sassy Nature- Iron Barbs
      252 HP/ 60 Def/ 196 SDef

      Stealth Rock
      Leech Seed
      Thunder Wave/ Gyro Ball
      Power Whip

      This keeps you from being complete set up bait to Taunt users, gets SR in the mix, and Leech Seed recovery support is always nice.

      Sweeping with Chandelure will not work with Nitro Charge and Balloon. Try a Scarf set or a Substitute Calm Mind set.

      Zoroark prefers Dark Pulse >> Night Daze for superior accuracy.

      Mienshao wants Fake Out >> Acrobatics as a standard.

      I'll come back if I spot anything else.

      Since Mienshao is the last Pokemon in your team, it'll have to swap spots with Haxorus or else your opponent will see through Zoroark's Illusion (when Zoroark comes in masquerading as Mienshao, it will take more damage than Mienshao would (Zoroark loses 1/8 of its HP upon entering battle while SR is up; Mienshao loses 1/16 when it comes in).

      And speaking of Haxorus, a super effective Brick Break does less than a neutral STAB Outrage. Dragon + Ground provide good coverage already, so replacing Brick Break with Dual Chop (to break Substitutes), Dragon Claw (for reliable STAB) or Taunt (to prevent set ups) is a good idea, IMO.

        Brick Break is actually useful to hit Ferrothorn, but if you feel that your team is ok with beating it then go ahead and go with above suggestions.
