Houndoom would be great if I could use 7 Pokemon, but I can't sacrifice Darmanitan without keeping the offensive synergy. As an offensive team I'd never sacrifice offensive synergy for defensive.
Making Zapdos specially defensive may help but Alakazam still hits it too damn hard. Calm Mind variants beat it easily.
I'm currently testing Honchkrow but it's not working too well so far.
