Alright guys this is my first post, and I've been playing around with the trickScarf idea for a bit and it's worked ok, but i'm debating switching to a team of sweepers while i earn some bp to make a TScarf team the right way.
(as it sits right now i've been using my alakazam as i dont have enough bp to teach trick to my latias/uxie/cresselia). I read the rules and I know technically you're supposed to have tried out the team, but i've been switching out to try new things and new teams, and could really use some input. Anyway, here we go...

Current Team:
Alakazam@ChoiceScarf- Calm (252 SPatk, 252 Spd)
-Focus Blast
-Shadow Ball
(Trying to get T.Wave onto him but dont have the BP yet,been breeding...)

Scizor @ Metal Coat - Naive (252 Atk, 100 hp, 152 Spd)
-Bullet punch
-Swords dance

-Starmie @ Choice Specs - Modest (252 SpAtk, 252 Spd)
-Ice Beam

Thats the team I'm currently using.. I know there are a few problems with my lead and having starmie as a revenge killer, but i'm working on it. I plan on switching Alakazam for Cresselia or Uxie once i get enough bp to teach them trick.

Now the real point of this post, I have a few other pokemon I have EV trained and raised to be used in the BT and I've wracked my brain lately trying to build a team and I'm looking for any input from the more experienced people out there. Suggestions as to which pokemon (of the ones i have already) to use, possible move changes, or suggestions as to maybe a new pokemon to breed that would work well with two others I already have. I feel like I'm Asking for a lot here, but i thought it would be worth a shot. Here we go- and I'm not posting items because that's all up in the air depending on what combination of pokemon i use. And if you can, please refrain from suggestion rebreeding a pokemon to change it's nature, i know some of them aren't perfect, and if it comes down to it, I can, but i prefer not to at the moment.

Leafeon- Serious - Leaf Guard - (252 Atk, 252 Spd)
-Aerial Ace
-Leaf Blade
-Dig (two turn move, i know, but viable in BT)

Sneasel - Jolly - Inner Focus (252 Atk, 252 Spd)
-Ice Shard/Swords Dance
-Ice Punch
-Night Slash
-Brick Break

Steelix - Quirky - Sturdy (252 Atk, 252 SpDef)
-Stone Edge
-Gyro Ball

Blazekin - Naive - Blaze (252 Atk, 252 Spd) (i know Infernape is better but i have no access to one ATM)
-Sky Uppercut
-Rock Slide
-Brave Bird
-Blaze Kick/Flame Thrower

(Bagon soon to be )Salamence - Naive - Intimidate (252 Atk, 252 Spd)
-Dragon Dance/Hydro Pump (i have one of each)
-Dragon Claw
-Fire Fang

Magnezone - Modest - Sturdy (252 SpAtk, other EVs scattered, been growing berries to fix)
-Flash (not sure why i put flash on him..)

I've been tossing around the idea of breeding/raising a flygon instead of salamence and running it with my weavile/scizor as a sweeper team. My ultimate goal is to earn enough BP that i can make a TrickScarf team with my Cresselia, Scizor, and Flygon/Weavile, So i'm really just looking for some advice as far as how i can put together a decent team with what i have, or maybe one more pokemon I can raise, that I can beat palmer with pretty easily and get enough BP for the move tutor. Any and all input is appreciated.

And for reference, I have Access to a finished diamond gamesave. Thanks for your time guys and gals.
