      Few things.

      Jellicent can get Recover, use that instead of Pain Split, because it has a rather large HP pool.

      And why Lum Berry on Gigalith? Off the top of my head, the only common lead running a really threatening status is probably Hypnosis Politoed, or a rare Grasswhistle Whimsicott, who is better off using Surf/Scald (or Giga Drain, in the case of Whimsicott) on Gigalith anyways. Poison and paralysis won't affect you much, since he is already slow, and appears to be something close to a suicide lead. Note, though, that Explosion is not as powerful as it used to be, and you may disappointed when it fails to kill something it hits for even neutral damage.

      Also, go ahead and run Life Orb instead of the Muscle Band on Hax, its defenses aren't high enough to be taking many hits anyways, so you may as well take the extra power while you can get it.

        I see Leavanny as dead weight to your team; two mons who has double weaknesses to fire aren't going to form some magical synergy. I recommend switching it out for a more reliable physical attacker with a much better typing, possibly Gliscor (who can still abuse Facade should you choose to do so, due to Poison Heal + Toxic Orb). Try this set:

        Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
        Trait: Poison Heal
        EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spd
        Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
        - Swords Dance
        - Earthquake
        - Ice Fang / Facade
        - Taunt

          Eh, I disagree with the sentiment that the fire weakness poses a problem, all of his other pokemon resist it, and as long as there remain no pursuit-like fire moves, he can always absorb them through others.

          But something I just noticed: Shadow Tag Chandelure is commonly banned.

              Yeah, I know. Hopefully it wasn't disallowed for this tournament.
              The only things that are disallowed are Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, and the move Sky Drop.

              And, what could I use in replace of Leavanny?

              I am assuming this is VGC 2011 doubles rules then....
              Top threats would be: Hydreigon, Chandelure, Whimsicott, Jellicent, Reuniclus, Conkeldurr, Amoongus, etc. ^^

              - Facade
              - Razor Leaf
              - Shadow Claw
              Priority Taunt/Encore Whimsicott will damper your chances of setting Rocks and Camouflage. I'd replace Leavanny with Mienshao. Its a fast, reliable physical attacker and has a plethora of options for doubles. Mienshao is a good lead because of Fake Out. Its ability, Inner Focus, prevents others from successfully using Fake Out on it. If you're not worried about opposing Fake Outs, use Regenerator. Rock Slide hits both opponents. Choose whichever fighting move you like (Drain Punch patches up Life Orb recoil). For team support options in doubles, Mienshao can use Wide Guard (for blocking opposing multi-target moves) and Protect (for dodging Earthquake from Gigalith too) and maybe even Taunt (stop weather/trick room) if you're not facing Prankster enemies.

              Mienshao @ Life Orb / Fighting Gem
              Nature: Jolly
              Trait: Inner Focus
              EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
              - Fake Out
              - Rock Slide
              - Drain Punch / Hi Jump Kick
              - Wide Guard / Protect / Taunt

              You can't use Shadow Tag Chandelure.. It's Dream World ability is not released yet. Use this set if you don't like Trick Room. Flash Fire is useful for switching into other Chandelure but Flame Body is preferred. Overheat and Shadow Ball are for STAB. Heat Wave is useful in doubles. Remaining moves will reflect your team's weaknesses.

              - Heat Wave
