Rock slide, EQ, heat wave, icy wind and surf are pretty good. But really, it depends entirely on what you're using.
I find thunderbolt's always the better move than discharge (it's literally like twice as powerful and doesn't need a partner) and eruption's basically useless because it's inflexible. Blizzard's cool when it's been set up but otherwise isn't reliable enough.
Just use spread moves that work lol, it's a question far easier answered by looking at what's available. :P
Also a note for anyone asking about strategies: If you need to set up to win, your strategy is bollocks and you need to make something more reliable.
Look at it logically: if you set up, you might win. If you don't set up, you lose. You're putting the game into the hands of your opponent, which means you can only beat noobs. It's not a coincidence that a setup team has never top cutted masters (or 09 seniors) worlds (and probably seniors too); it's because setup teams are bad gameplay lol.
