I guess because the opponent is not likely to lead with Keldeo, and most certainly not Manaphy, allows you to prepare yourself for when Keldeo eventually comes in. It's preparing my Excadrill/Blaziken/Chandelure to get one attack in prior to fainting, then I can hopefully Protect for Speed Boost without Keldeo using Substitute in the same turn. Keldeo requires Rain support if he wishes to OHKO Garchomp after one Calm Mind, so they need to bring their Politoed sooner rather than later.
I do have another version of this team, but the strategy is noticably different in that I don't run Chandelure and I opt for Shed Shell on Tyranitar. In place of Chandelure and Genesect, I have Breloom and Keldeo giving me useful Water-type resists.
However, I now lose my only Fighting-type resist and other than replacing Breloom/Keldeo for Chandelure/Deoxys-S, this team should remain the same. It is a fine template when looking at how to build a successful DW team, and perhaps should serve as a guideline for similar varients adjusted to everyones' own preferences for when making their own.
