    Hi, guys, can you give me a rating out of 10, and maybe suggestions for improvement?
    Tyranitar
    Item:Chople Berry
    Abilityand Stream
    EVs:252HP,6Atk,252SpD
    Stealth Rock
    Crunch
    Stone Edge
    Superpower
    Tyranitar is supposed to start the sandstorm at the start of the battle, and then attempt to lay down the Stealth Rock, after that, it is pretty useless. However, it has its other attacks, which are supposed to wreck as much havoc as possible.

    Gliscor
    Item:Toxic Orb
    Ability: Poison Heal
    EVs:252HP,184Def,74Sp
    Toxic
    Earthquake
    Fire Fang
    Protect
    Gliscor is defensive, and uses the slow and steady method to take out opponents by starting off with the toxic and switching between protect and one of the two attack moves. It has Fire Fang for those pesky ice types.

    Mamoswine
    Item:Life Orb
    Ability:Thick Fat
    EVs: 6HP,252Atk,252Sp
    Ice Shard
    Earthquake
    Stone Edge
    Icicle Crash
    Mamoswine is a physical sweeper, he has the Ice Shard incase there is a fast opponent with little HP. The other three moves are there to humiliate the opponent. Plus STAB Earthquake aswell.

    Skarmory
    Itemhed Shell
    Abilityturdy
    EVs:252HP,252Def,26Sp
    Roost
    Spikes
    Roar
    Aerial Ace
    Skarmory is like Gliscor, defensive, but it is also the official troll of my team. It s main objective is to try and kill the enemy with Spikes just by using Roar many times, and then when the enemy manages to hit it, it just uses Roost and heals again! I have designed it to make people ragequit right away! It also has Aerial Ace, because it could do with an attack move

    Metagross
    Item:Life Orb
    Ability:Clear Body
    EVs:54HP,252Atk,204Sp
    Agility
    Zen Headbutt
    Thunderpunch
    Meteor Mash
    Metagross is the wrecking ball of my team(well, one of three), it focuses on getting its speed up and then taking out opponents with zen headbutt, thinderpunch and STAB meteor mash. this guy should be able to sweep once agility is used once or twice.

    Terrakion
    Item:Choice Scarf
    Ability:Justified
    EVs: 6HP,252Atk,252Sp
    Close Combat
    Stone Edge
    X-Scizzor
    Sacred Sword
    You must now be thinking, what are you doing, camzi? are you insane? The answer is no. Terrakion is here to already be speedy, with the EVs and the scarf, so all happens when it gets sent out is it picks a move, and i get to watch it sweep. Terrakion(which already has base 108 speed), should be able to outspeed most opponents, and then crush them.

    Thanks for reading, please rate my team, and if you think it sucks, then please tell me why. (by the way, in case you havent noticed, it's a sandstorm team!)

    Natures would be helpful here.

    Skarmory is better off with Brave Bird or Drill Peck as its offensive move because both have higher BP than Aerial Ace.

    Also, this team kind of struggles against bulky Waters, since half your team is weak to them and Metagross' ThunderPunch is the only attack that can hit them. Lati@s, Ferrothorn or Virizion can fill in for you as checks/counters to them, but you have to give up someone else on the team for at least one of them. Not every Pokemon on the team has to be immune to Sandstorm:

    Latias:
    -Calm Mind
    -Dragon Pulse
    -Recover
    -Hidden Power (Fire)/Substitute/Roar
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    or
    -Dragon Pulse
    -Recover/Wish
    -Roar
    -Reflect/Protect
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    or
    -Calm Mind
    -Dragon Pulse
    -Recover
    -Reflect/Refresh
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP/228 Def/28 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    Latios:
    -Draco Meteor
    -Surf
    -Hidden Power (Fire)
    -Trick/Psyshock
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

    or
    -Draco Meteor/Dragon Pulse
    -Surf
    -Hidden Power (Fire)
    -Recover/Psyshock
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

    or
    -Calm Mind
    -Dragon Pulse
    -Surf
    -Hidden Power (Fire)/Recover/Psyshock
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers

    Ferrothorn:
    -Spikes/Stealth Rock
    -Leech Seed
    -Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
    -Power Whip/Protect
    Nature: Relaxed
    EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
    Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell

    Virizion:
    -Calm Mind
    -Giga Drain
    -Focus Blast
    -Hidden Power (Ice/Rock)
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

    or
    -Swords Dance
    -Leaf Blade
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge/Hidden Power (Ice)
    Nature: Jolly/Hasty
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

    or
    -Work Up
    -Close Combat
    -Giga Drain
    -Hidden Power (Ice)/Stone Edge
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    EVs: 104 Atk/152 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

    or
    -Reflect
    -Light Screen
    -Taunt
    -Giga Drain/Close Combat
    Nature: Timid/Jolly
    EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 Spe
    Item: Light Clay

    Another revenge killer you can consider over Terrakion (because it's weak to several common types) is Stoutland because it has Sand Rush coupled with a decent Attack:
    -Return
    -Superpower
    -Pursuit/Crunch
    -Wild Charge
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band
    Ability: Sand Rush

    If you find opposing entry hazards annoying, you can consider Sandslash as an offensive Rapid Spinner:
    -Swords Dance
    -Earthquake
    -Rock Slide
    -X-Scissor/Rapid Spin
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry
    Ability: Sand Rush

    Seriously? No way. Terrakion is holding a Choice Scarf, which means that if it uses SD while holding said item, it gets locked into the move until it switches. This Terrakion set is meant to be a revenge killer, not something that can plow through teams (though it's possible for a Scarf Pokemon to do that if its base (Special) Attack is high enough)
