I'm sorry, but Taunt is a retarded move. It does nothing but plays mind game. Just set one layer of Spikes, then set another one. And then another one if the opposing Pokemon uses Stealth Rock. Down to 1HP? No problemo. Switch, out and switch back in later to Destiny Bond something (what team doesn't have a rapid spinner, nowadays?). Froslass is fast, can easily sets up Spikes, can kill and slow down stuff with icy wind. It's easily the best pokemon in the entire tier. If you disagree with me, go blow me a kiss.
I'm sorry to say this, but you sound extremely ignorant, and your basing half of your candidates solely on opinion, and Jynx, although dangerous, is NOT #1 in UU, not even in RU. Her typing is terrible, and she has an insane weakness to physical attacks. Froslass on the other hand, although good, is not #1 viable either. It's pretty much mostly used as a spike suicide lead and a spin blocker, although Cofagrigus is a much better choice. In my opinion, Accelgor is better at this anyway. Also, something that really pissed me off is what you said about Taunt. Taunt is probably one of the greatest support moves out there, and it completely ruins walls, sweepers and supporters such as Stealth Rock/Spike leads, Bronzong, Amoonguss, Scrafty, Cresselia, and so much more. It can also ruin Trick Room and weather teams. Now do you still think it's retarded?
Anyway, contributing to the actual thread, I can't honestly think of any new candidates at the top of my head ATM, here's my current top 5 out of all these posts:
Heracross is just plain insane. Swift Swim Kingdra destroys anything and has only one weakness. Roserade is one of the only good Toxic Spikers in UU, and has good offensive capabilities. Mienshao can be devastating to weakened mons with access to Fake Out and nice attack. Scrafty if given the time to set up a DD or Bulk Up, it can be an incredible pain to take out, unless you have a Heracross of course.
