Hey there ^^ 

so in my opinion, Biggest threats the current OU meta is 


- Garchomp 
- Conkeldurr
- Reuniclus
- Rain teams. 

Garchomp with Yache berry is problematic.
And most movesets for cloyster is Icicle spear - Shell smash - rock blast - ice shard/HP fire. with a focus sash. 

Skarmory is good for having Roar with rocks/spikes spam.

Best of luck ~ just in case you haven't i'd suggest joining a team in order to get better advice & practice

I would recommend Garchomp. Your current team has zero defenses against volt switch strategies. Volt switch + U TURN is a good option, specially cause of umbreons type. I'd also put stealth rock instead of spikes, since spikes cant do much against some compositions (levitate, flying tipes). Of course, 3 spikes are better than stealth rocks, but in competitive matches you most likely wont have that much of free rounds. If possible, try to put defog in charge of Rotom. Why? Magnezone can easily counter Skarmory, and dont forget to take a look in the taunt users: Gyarados/Mandibuzz, as they can easily deny your defog, while with rotom-wash, i dont think they would dare in face of a possible volt switch.
