Of course the downfall for it is that it's relying on a gazillion inaccurate Special Attacks, but that's all part of the fun. :D
If you use Jolly, you don't really need to use up the Gem to outspeed most things. Still, it does lose some valuable power. Seeing as Sceptile is my favorite Pokémon design wise (I know some people say it's ugly but for me it's the coolest mon ever), I tried building a team around the Unburden set. It was just today and has only gone through 8 matches. Sceptile isn't great and doesn't always sweep, not to mention that Adamant nature gives me the problem of not outspeeding Galvantula before Acrobatics, but it did earn me one clean sweep and 3 forfeits.
I think the special set works better as a cleaner but I really hate the Sp.Atk drop due to Leaf Storm. Using it is just screaming "I'm switching out now!", which is even more predictable than the Unburden set.
