This doesn't at all change whether or not Syclant is broken with Tail Glow. Syclant is not Infernape. They are similar, to the point where one could say Infernape's Nasty Plot leads to Syclant's Tail Glow. However, Syclant has crap typing, two 4x weaknesses that aren't exactly rare types, and crap defenses. Also, having those accuracies that you gave means that Syclant starts off with a great 50% HP, meaning that any priority move is gonna be death. The turn Syclant Stats up is the turn that it has to take a hit or hope for a switch. Infernape can take a hit with a neutral to Stealth Rock typing. Syclant, not so much.
