Try this out. Now that PKMN B2W2 is out...this is legal.
Liepard (m or f)
Adamant / Modest
Evs (Adamant): 252 Atk / 124 Def / 124 SDef / 8 Spd
Evs (Modest): 124 Def / 252 SAtk / 124 SDef / 8 Spd
This fits in great with any Team leaning more to one side or another, especially for a one type Pokemon. It'd depend on the pokemon you'd have on your side, but man the mon would be a VERY Nasty Surprise for anyone without priority.
If you want to talk to me...Email or PM me!

After the DQonquest
First off, attract. Why? Attract is very gimmicky and situational. You don't know what the other pokemon's gender will be. Even if attract hits, the opponent can easily switch out. They can then bring in a fighting type such as Sawk, which outspeeds mightyena, resists its STAB and will OHKO it with CC. You're giving the opponent a chance to switch out.
Me first- same thing with attract, except worse. If your opponent is, say, trying to set up a sweep, your doing nothing by copying their boosts. I can't even explain how bad me first is. In order for it to be effective AT ALL, you'll need to identify the set your opponent's Pokemon is running, and predict their next move, and decide if the move is effective against your opponent. If the opponent's Pokemon is offensive (chances are it will be in this meta and the Pokemon youre using), they'll likely use a STAB attack, which won't be dark type because they'll avoid resistance.
Most types resist themselves, so you'll hit the opponent with a resisted attack, and they'll hit you with STAB. Not a good trade.
I really can't criticize anymore because your intentions with this set are unclear, but assuming it's offensive, this is a very unstable set. It's very situational. Moxie is mighty's only positive aspect, and you throw that away?
Razor fang- 10 percent flinch rate? How is that helpful? Are you trying to finch your opponent to death with astonish and razor fang? Astonish would do so little damage! Leave flinching to dunsparce, seriously.
This set needs.... I don't know what...
Anyone like star wars?

So with the advent of BW2, Liepard was gifted with a few toys, namely Prankster and Dark Pulse. Prior to BW2, Liepard's options for a special STAB move were limited to Snarl and... Hidden Power Dark. But no more, with Dark Pulse, Liepard can finally use an effective Nasty Plot set coming from a respective base 88 Special Attack stat. Here's the set I would probably use.
Liepard @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
- Nasty Plot
- Dark Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
Encore is great for Liepard as it opens up many set-up opportunities against the various Psychic-types in the tier by locking them into their STAB move. As an added bonus, with the release of Prankster, Encore gains +1 priority - as does Nasty Plot - which helps against Pokemon such as Choice Scarf Gardevoir, Kadabra and Trick Room. Dark Pulse and Hidden Power Fighting, together make perfect coverage. Alternately, a set utilising Liepard's decent support movepool and Prankster is usable.

I had the same idea for liepard. The set looks awesome to me. Encore can be used on so much more than only psychic attacks (I'm always abusing that move). Using it on sub sweepers and weather inducers like ludicolo gives it a great secondary anti sweep role. I also like how he's the only poke at 106 speed meaning hp fighting isn't breaking speed ties on anything but opposing Liepard. Resistance to sucker punch is cool too. Priority Nasty plot is near usless though, prankster is really for encore only.
