    Got bored. Made this for fun.:p (It's UU.)

    Nidoking@Life Orb
    Ability: Sheer Force
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
    ~Ice Beam
    ~Sludge Bomb

    Typical Nidoking of power and death. Beast.

    Roserade@Wise Glasses
    Ability: Poison Point
    Nature: Modest
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
    ~Energy Ball
    ~Sludge Bomb
    ~Dazzling Gleam

    Meh special attacking bulk. Sensory and DG are for coverage.

    Krookodile@Life Orb
    Ability: Moxie
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
    ~Dragon Claw
    ~Brick Break
    ~Foul Play

    Moxie + Good Atk = Death for opponent.

    Tornadus@Sitrus Berry
    Ability: Prankster
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spe / 4 SpA
    ~Air Slash

    Support guy. Subs, then Tailwinds.

    (Note: I've been debating other possibilities for these next two. They are open for change.)

    Ability: Pressure
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
    ~Rock Slide
    ~Stealth Rock

    Lead. Rocks, then switches. Can possibly fool people into thinking it's a more support set.

    Ability: Natural Cure
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

    Toxic Stall of the death.
    (How many times have I said the word death?:'|>:D)

    - Nidoking is missing Earth Power.

    - Energy Ball is redundant due to Giga Drain's power buff from Gen V. Either that or Leaf Storm will be more suitable for STAB. Also, with a set like that you may as well run a Choice item.

    - Moxie Krookodile is better off running Attack/Speed with Jolly to properly take advantage of the sweeping potential Moxie grants. With an EV spread/nature like yours you'd be better off with Intimidate and Dragon Tail or something.

    - Tailwind is quite poor in singles due to its low duration, only really being effective when used in combination with three attacks to create a surprisingly quick attacker. There are better ways of getting a speed advantage over the opponent than this, and Tornadus has better moves to use over it as well (Taunt.)

    - Your Aerodactyl will require prediction to avoid being massacred on your Stealth Rock turn.

    - Blissey is setup bait for anything immune to Toxic, Lucario being the most obvious. Toxic stall sets in general are awful unless you're using Toxic Spikes to administer the status effect, and on a team like this the strategy seems like it wouldn't help anyway. Blissey is better off running Thunder Wave to aid your offense-oriented team to guarantee you'll outspeed the enemy.

    I'd recommend a proper wallbreaker and/or a setup sweeper on a team like this as well in order to better punch holes in enemy defenses.

    K, thanks!

    Nidoking: Earth Power over Sludge Bomb.

    Roserade: Giga Drain and Specs. Sure.

    Krookodile: Max Speed, Jolly, and Band. (I figured, why not Band?)

    Tornadus: Taunt over Tailwind.

    Blissey: Seismic Toss over Toxic.

    Aaaaannnd finally, replacing Aero is our new lead, Drapion!

    Drapion@Black Sludge
    Ability: Battle Armor
    Nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
    ~Toxic Spikes
    ~Poison Jab

    Raters, debate!

    Drapion gives you 3 poison types and 2 dark types. You need someone else I think.
