As far as the synergy problems regarding not being a rock type setter, it's really in the same boat as Piloswine there..except it definitely has better typing all around. Brave Bird spam isn't as popular as it once was and as long as you are checking Braviary you are fine.
I see a lot more Bulk Up these days which actually deals with the typical setter a lot better than Golurk who can and will disrupt your setup with confusion hax.
And lastly there is always the option of bulky electrics.
It's again, really a matter of anti-metagaming Sawk which is arguably the most dominant mon in the tier.
