Going to have to disagree here. With the ubiquity of Misdreavus, I would almost always want Shadow Claw > Rock Slide. IMO, the move set should be:
-Rock Slide / X-Scissor / Protect
-Swords Dance / Rapid Spin
This is because Sucker Punch Murkrow will best Life Orb variants that lack Substitute anyways, and Eviolite variants shouldn't be taking on Murkrow early game either. Furthermore, Shadow Claw is the smarter choice against Natu. Finally, it is much easier for your Hippopotas to switch into Murkrow than it is for it to switch into Misdreavus. X-Scissor should definitely not be forgotten; as Bronzor has fallen off in love, people have been relying on things such as Shroomish to check Drilbur; X-Scissor also does slightly more damage to Lileep.
