I don't see a problem with Toxicroak in B. SD Croak is pretty effective right now. It's an amazing Keldeo counter and deals well with many of the common threats on standard HO and sand teams. It sets up on Deoxys-D bar T-wave and psycho boost variants. At +2 it beats Genesect, Terrakion, Dragonite (after rocks), Breloom, Lati twins (debatable, since latios frequently carries trick if you try to sucker punch it and croak will lose to sub CM latias), and Salamence is 1hko'd after rocks. There are also several more fast, frail pokemon that get 1hko'd by +2 sucker punch. It works really well on teams with Tornadus-T and Dugtrio, who can easily take care of Ninetales.
