Cinderace @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Libero
Tera Type: Flying
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- U-turn
- Pyro Ball
- High Jump Kick
- Will-O-Wisp

This bro here can one shot both With pyro ball, but HJK on serp to lure a tera rock anyways. Am I doing this At 4 Am? Yep. Is it possible that I wake up and see that and think: wow this Is totally trash? Absolutely
 

Gouging Fire @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Protosynthesis
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Tera Type: Flying
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Heat Crash
- Earthquake
- Morning Sun

This set is pretty self-explanatory. Gouging Fire has the natural bulk to take any hit Mega Scizor throws at it (Sand Tomb doesn't even 2HKO it) and revenge kill or heal back up. It can also handle Serp since it can survive +2 Leaf Storm into +2 HP Ground from full. If needed, it can also use Tera to deal with Ground coverage.

Cooks clod with eq and corv with fire blast. Also good against the rest of stall with dmeteor for dozo and is an ok burst option into a weakened Glisc. Tera doesn’t really matter either because you do a million to clod anyway and Draco corv.

Edit: Changed nature to naive to take the attacks from corv and clod better lolz just an optimization
