Unfortunately, that doesn't work as Volcanion has a chance bigger than 50% to 2HKO Miasmaw even without Specs, and Miasmaw fails to OHKO it in return.

Does mine still count, though?
So, with Miasmaw out of game, Volcanion is the one to look at, and Stratagem surely don't counter it. Still, note that Neutralizing Gas would nullify Levitate, therefore you should take Earthquake into account as well.
