Azelf has 4 moveslot syndrome, is weak to Pursuit, and is easily revenge killed because of its terrible defenses. I have tried Sub+3 Attacks a few times and gotten quite a few surprise kills, but I always end up getting a kill and then giving the opponent momentum because I am forced out by a faster U-Turn. I could never see Nasty Plot working well in this metagame simply because it is too frail to set up, weak to Sucker Punch, and OHKO'd by every common scarfer in the tier
I do not believe Mew can function as an effective sweeper either, because as Heysup said, even when you mispredict the set it is not THAT dangerous with a boost under its belt. I guess the SD one is alright because it has priority, but Sucker Punch doesn't even 1HKO Flygon at +4, and a lot of bulky pokes can take a Zen Headbutt at +6 and phaze or status it.
Mew works better as a boosting wallbreaker, hitting most walls for respectable damage and weakening walls just enough for teammates to come in and sweep.
