Nice team DSL.

I, personally, would change focus sash to either life orb or white herb on cloyster. Cloyster has great defenses and will be surviving most hits without needing the sash. Also, if you decide not to use it as a lead, rocks or sand will make it useless.

Just a note, you only have one dragon resist. This could cause you trouble in this draco meteor/outrage spamming metagame. You might want to add another steel.

Over, looks good.

First, a couple of changes;
-Skill Link on Cloyster, it's what allows it to effectively use Icicle Spear and Rock Blast, and there's no real use for defence against crits when you're reducing your own defences =P
-Stone Edge over Payback on Conkeldurr, better neutral coverage and isn't reliant on taking damage to get any real power behind it. It also nails flying types that resist your STAB and maul you with theirs.
-Leftovers over Shed Shell on Ferrothorn, trappers are very rare in OU this generation and consistent recovery will be more useful than preparing for a rarity.

Aside from that, nice team. I'd also recommend trying to fit another Steel type in there, but mainly because you also lack an Ice resistance barring Cloyster, who as a sweeping lead doesn't ten to stick around for mid-to-late game engagements. My suggestion, albeit a strange choice, would be a Choice Scarf Cobalion;

Cobalion@Leftovers
Naive
252Att/52SpAtt/200Spe
Close Combat
Stone Edge
Hidden Power [Ice]
X Scissor

As well as providing the resistances you need, it also makes an excellent poke to at least check every dragon out there. The EVs allow it to outspeed all dragons at +1 Speed with a speed boosting nature, beating Garchomp by one point. So assuming you don't let them get multiple dragon dances in, you can nail them with either stone edge or HP Ice. However even if they do get two DDs in, Cobalion can comfortably survive a +2 Life Orb Outrage from Salamence and retaliate for the KO. Close Combat for STAB, Stone Edge and Hidden Power for dragon slaying, X Scissor for the Lati twins (Who Ferrothorn can comfortably handle if they lack HP Fire anyway). Who it would go over is relative, you know who is most important to the team better than we could from just looking at it. Mess around with it in different slots on the roster and see if it does anything for you [=

Hmm... I haven't observed it for long, but even at first glance, it seems like you have 3 physical walls (Ferro, Gliscor, Gyara). I suggest you take out one of them for a special attacker.

For that dragon weakness: I would replace Ferrothorn with either Skarmory or Bronzong. Both check Garchomp and Excadrill well and can set up Stealth Rocks for you. The team I battled you with the other night had this Skarmory set:

Skarmory @ shed shell
Sturdy
Impish
252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Speed

Stealth Rock
Taunt
Roost
Whirlwind

Taunt Skarmory also helps out with Ferrothorn, who is the most used pokemon on wifi. Just don't get Twaved.

Edit: Defensively, Cloyster is your team's weakest link. It's bringing alot of weaknesses to the team and doesn't do a great job of stopping anything. If you're going to change the team further, I would change Cloyster first.

you are both right, my team has to many defensive problems. getting a sp atker is very important, im going to test out gorfes idea. I also really need a new lead..which im looking into.
