Aerodactyl is the only other lead that outspeeds you(ties), haven't done the calcs but there may be a chance of surviving 2 Rock Slides.
Actually now I have done the calcs, 252 Atk Rock Slide does with Naive and 45.18% - 53.31% and with Hasty it does 49.1% - 58.13% so clearly it makes a big difference in terms of surviving two Rock Slides
You beat Azelf anyway if it chooses to SR on the first turn (which it should do).

Ehhhhhh. I don't see the need for Shadow Ball. Neutral STAB Ancient Beam will do more always to every Ghost or Psychic other than Revenankh. Hasty>Naive, your Special Defense gets boosted in Sandstorm, and your Defense sucks to begin with. Personally, put U-turn/Protect over Shadow Ball. Also, the emphasis shouldn't be on attack.
>>>>>It's a lead, you won't have sandstorm in effect unless you're against Ttar or Hippowdon.
Neutral Ancient Beam = 85*1.5 = 127.5
SE Shadow Ball = 80*2 = 160
Shadow Ball is mainly reliably killing Azelf before it kills you.
