I have never built a team with aegislash checks in mind, seriously it gets easily checked just by default. Just about every team ever has at the very least one pokemon with earthquake and almost all teams have something with a fire move, i mean like half the teams i face have one of the charizards on it. The point in that in my experience i check aegislash without specifically even trying to because way more threatening pokemon like charizard X and mega mawille as you said are also weak to ground moves while mega mawille is also weak to fire. Aegislash is consistent and typically pulls its weight but honestly there is no way it is broken and there were other pokemon that could have been tested first.By your own admission, Aegislash requires multiple checks and counters, on the same team, to handle, and thus that really seems to point to Aegislash being an unhealthy presence within this metagame.
