Ferrothorn completely walls this team, I suggest that you try HP fire on Magnezone instead of HP ice. Also, your EV spread seems quite random tbh. Run the standard 36 HP / 252 SpA / 220 Spe spread. Alternatley you might try charge beam over magnet rise and keep HP ice for coverage.
I'd switch Haxorus and Dnite roles in the team. Dnite works better as a choice bander in my opinion. A CB extremespeed will make it an excellent revenge killer for fast enemies that have speed boosting moves (especially Volcarona, which seems to be a pain for your team).
On Latios you'll probably need life orb and earthquake over waterfall, otherwise you won't score a ohko on TTar, which means a dead Latios unless TTar has already taken some previous damage.
On Starmie you might as well run max Spe, 32 HP EVs don't change that much and having max Spe might be a better idea as you'll tie with opposing Starmie. I also suggest hydro pump over surf or you won't even 2hko TTar.
Just some thoughts.
Thanks for the input!
The way I see, Thunder out of the rain is the same as Focus Blast, and everyone runs that anyway on things that can. At the same time, it is true that Thunder occasionally feels like its got 50% accuracy, so I'll see how that works.
The current EV spread for Magnezone is so that I can cover up the Dragon weakness that my team has. HP ice provides amazing coverage, and with Thunderbolt, I've got pseudo BoltBeam. HP fire is sooooo tempting though, because Ferrothorn does piss me off so much. Charge Beam does sound interesting though, get a couple of boosts, then finish with T-bolt. Also, with those EVs, what do I outspeed?
I've never actually had a problem with Volcarona, if it switches in on my lead Jirachi, it gets an Ironball. Otherwise, Dragonite can come in, take anything, then retaliate with Outrage. CB Haxorus gives me the raw power to break through some physical walls, such as Gliscor or OHKO Offensive Dragonite.
For Latios, EQ sounds good, though I'm not to sure whether using Life Orb over Dragon Fang is worth it. If I use Life Orb, there's obviously a power with my attacks, however, it means that I lose my bluff, which is quite invaluable when setting up DD, though even if they do see LO recoil, it would doubtful the opponent would get DD.
I'll defs try Hydro Pump on Starmie.
