This team still fails at being creatable on console, because I can't get a Serperior (they're in non-ultra Su/Mo only), although I could reasonably trade for one.
Decidueye isn't as good at the role, but it would provide the ghost typing I wanted...
my first thoughts from trying to play it: I struggled to break Tentacruel a lot if things weren't lined up just right, and i'm wishing I had a ghost-type to deny the enemy spins.
I put a UU team together on Showdown and went 3-for-5 in my first couple battles (on a brand new ELO)
(spiker / waller/ toxic)
(fast special sweeper / spinner)
(stealth rock / bulky phys sweeper)
(subseed, special sweeper)
(swords dance phys sweeper)
I think it covers the basics OK? I've got utility, heavy spiking, a spinner, some decent bulky switch-ins, and things that can buff to break through walls.

Back in the gen 3 era, was a remarkably solid competitive pick in OU!
It’s got great offensive type coverage between Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt, plus the ever-popular Rapid Spin. Natural Cure and Recover gave it defensive options too.
Looks like it’s dropped to UU by now, as it’s middling stats have been outpaced over time. But it’s still one of my favorite spinny boys.
Here’s a commission I just had done by Asbie!
