Conkeldurr @ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 152 HP / 108 Atk / 248 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Substitute
- Focus Punch
- Knock Off
- Thunder Punch / Ice Punch
SubPunch + Iron Fist Conkeldurr is a really fun Pokémon to use since it can defeat a lot of Defensive Cores without much efforts. Thunder Punch + Knock Off is the best coverage choice imo, since you can hit Ghost- and Psychic-Types while you can still hit stuff like Gyarados and Crobat. Alternatively, you can run Ice Punch to hit Salamence too. This EV Spread will able Conkeldurr's Substitute to resist one Scald from Defensive Suicune, what is very useful sometimes. Leftovers may help Conkeldurr to survive more time and is a mandatory Item since you have Substitute.
 
Well, I use this in OU and it doesn't seem to be on the analysis so...

Conkeldurr @ Life Orb
Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Mach Punch
- Drain Punch / Superpower
- Ice Punch / Thunder Punch
- Thunder Punch / Poison Jab

It's a strong wallbreaker with groovy bulk. 4 spe let's it outspeed uninvested Conks and Mach Punch is powerful priority. Otherwise, it's just strong attacks with sheer force boosting them. Conk is quite bulky and Drain Punch lets it heal small amounts of health lost while Superpower hits like a truck. Your assorted coverage can deal with Flying mons (*cough* Gyarados and Mence *cough*) and fairies.

By the way, the sets that can't be used seem to be AV and Choice Band Guts ones if I'm looking at the right place.
 

Conkeldurr @ Coba Berry

Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Drain Punch
- Thunder Punch
- Ice Punch / Poison Jab / Knock Off
- Mach Punch

This set serves as a nice lure against flying types, especially MAero, Gyarados and Crobat. What's good about this set is that Sheer Force gives TPunch just enough power to KO them even without a LO boost.

Here are some calcs:

MAero:
252 Atk Tough Claws Mega Aerodactyl Aerial Ace vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Coba Berry Conkeldurr: 136-162 (38.7 - 46.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ Atk Sheer Force Conkeldurr Thunder Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Mega Aerodactyl: 284-336 (94.3 - 111.6%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO

Crobat:
0 Atk Crobat Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Coba Berry Conkeldurr: 124-147 (35.3 - 41.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ Atk Sheer Force Conkeldurr Thunder Punch vs. 248 HP / 48 Def Crobat: 282-332 (75.6 - 89%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery
^ KOs support Crobat after BB recoil.

252 Atk Choice Band Crobat Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Coba Berry Conkeldurr: 238-282 (67.8 - 80.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Sheer Force Conkeldurr Thunder Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Crobat: 298-352 (95.8 - 113.1%) -- 75% chance to OHKO

Gyarados:
+1 252 Atk Gyarados Bounce vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Coba Berry Conkeldurr: 211-250 (60.1 - 71.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
-1 252+ Atk Sheer Force Conkeldurr Thunder Punch vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Gyarados: 400-472 (120.8 - 142.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

The sets slated to be on the UU analysis are Assault Vest and LO Iron Fist if that is not clear to anyone, because the UU analysis for Conk has not been officially uploaded yet.

Your set is fine, though.

CB Iron Fist, actually, with OO consisting of Guts Bulk Up and Sheer Force + LO. Not sure if Other Options qualify for Next Best Things or not. (If not, then I'm reserving Bulk Up Conk.)

EDIT: Conkeldurr's soon-to-be-uploaded analysis

- Taunt

Super Fang is really dope on stallbreaker Hydreigon. It's a really great tool that allows it to break past the few checks that it does have (like Blissey!) and follow-up with a powerful Dark Pulse that OHKOs things weakened already bar resists. It's an overall neat option that's pretty darn cool and has its uses

Hydreigon @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Ability: Levitate
Hasty Nature
- Iron Tail
- Draco Meteor
- Dark Pulse
- Superpower / Roost

Iron Tail allows Hydreigon to easily nab the OHKO after SRs on Sylveon (barring hax) and Florges, easily its best switchins and the two most threatening Pokemon in UU to it. The rest are standard for Wallbreaker Hydreigon.
