You could probably afford to replace Magnezone with a wall, maybe another setup? I'm not 100% sure, but that's the only thing I can think of right now. Looks pretty good though!

Yeah the main problem I'm seeing is that there's no pokemon with stealth rocks/spikes/toxic etc.
The thing is though, Magnezone has my only steel and electric type moves, so I don't think it should be the one to be replaced.

You could honestly use a Jirachi for that, assuming Stealth Rock is a TM in this game. Jirachi lead can be pretty good, actually:


Jirachi @ Choice Scarf
Serene Grace
Jolly
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Iron Head
- Stealth Rock
- U-turn
- Trick




However, you can't really breed Jirachi, so nature would be difficult to ascertain.




On the other hand, you could remove Sawk for a Metagross:




Metagross @ Lum Berry
Clear Body
Adamant
EVs: 252 HP / 240 Atk / 16 Spe
- Bullet Punch
- Earthquake
- Meteor Mash / Explosion
- Stealth Rock






Priority Bullet Punch would probably be a lot more helpful than the extra type coverages Sawk is giving. But that's just my opinion.

I'm kind of against using legendaries in competitive battling, regardless of their tier placement.
Metagross is a possibility, but I really think I need a fighting type move. Perhaps hidden power fighting or custom move fighting could work instead of meteor mash.

Custom Move FIghting would be incredibly powerful on Metagross. Base 90 Physical is really strong. Go for it.

Only thing is, I'm not sure if it will work online or just in game.

It should work online. But that does pose the interesting question, does trading a pokémon with a custom move change said custom move?
