    Suicide Lead: Azelf @ Focus Sash
    EVs: 252 spe, 252 atk, 4 spd
    Timid Nature
    Stealth Rocks
    Fire Blast

    Basically all I do is taunt on a slower lead and get my rocks up and then explode.

    Physical Sweeper: Darmanitan @ Choice Scarf
    EVs: 252 atk, 252 spe, 4 def
    Adamant Nature
    Flare Blitz
    Rock Slide

    Special Sweeper: Hydreigon @ Choice Scarf
    EVs: 252 spa, 252 spe, 4 spd
    Timid Nature
    Draco Meteor
    Fire Blast
    Dark Pulse

    I would most of the time use draco meteor and on the next turn switch out.

    Physical Wall: Skarmory @ Leftovers
    EVs: 252 def, 252 hp, 4 spd
    Impish Nature
    Brave Bird

    Standard Skarmory set. Nothing special here.

    Special Wall: Blissey @ Leftovers
    EVs: 252 spd, 252 hp, 4 def
    Calm Nature
    Heal Bell
    Seismic Toss

    Basic Blissey wall.

    Tank: Conkeldurr @ Leftovers
    EVs: 252 atk, 252 def, 4 hp
    Brave Nature
    Bulk Up
    Drain Punch
    Mach Punch
    Hammer Arm

    A bulk up set.

      Unfortunately, the team you have is a little too unbalanced. Most of these Pokemon are usable in OU, except for Blaziken who's only allowed in the Ubers tier. That means you'll have to decide what you want to do, because keeping this team may result in more losses than victories.

      If you want the Uber tier, then I'd suggest getting rid of Azelf and Conkeldurr, as they are outclassed by Deoxys-S and Blaziken respectively. If you want to use the OU tier, then as mentioned before remove Blaziken from the team, as it is banned from OU. Have a think about which tier you want to battle in, and make these changes accordingly. I may give a more thorough review once that's done. Here's a list of links for which Pokemon is viable in the OU and Uber tier respectively.
      Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

        I was gonna use this team for against my friend in a tier-less match, but to make it a OU team I edited the original post.

        Hydreigon is outclassed as a Choice Scarf user by Latios because it hits harder and is faster than Hydreigon. Hydreigon is best off wall-breaking:
        -Draco Meteor
        -Fire Blast
        -Earthquake/Earth Power/Dark Pulse/Roost
        Nature: Rash/Mild
        EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

        -Dragon Pulse
        -Focus Blast
        -Fire Blast/Roost
        Nature: Modest
        EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

        -Draco Meteor
        -Fire Blast
        -Focus Blast
        -U-turn/Dark Pulse
        Nature: Modest
        EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Choice Specs

        Skarmory's EV spread should be 224 HP/252 Def/32 SDef to give it a Leftovers number.

        Blissey's HP is high enough already, so you can invest in 4 HP/252 Def/252 SDef to help it survive some physical hits.

        Conkeldurr is badly walled by Ghosts with its current set. A coverage move should go over Hammer Arm; don't let the high base power tempt you; the utilities of both Drain Punch and Mach Punch are both important. Use Stone Edge, Ice Punch or Payback in Hammer Arm's place. Since Conkeldurr's Defense will be boosted by Bulk Up, it would like some investment in its weak Special Defense to survive some Special hits:
        -Bulk Up
        -Drain Punch
        -Mach Punch
        -Payback/Ice Punch/Stone Edge
        Nature: Brave/Adamant
        EVs: 120 HP/252 Atk/136 SDef
        Item: Leftovers
        Ability: Guts
