Well, first and foremost I'd say getting Stealth Rocks active will go a long way. That plus Ice Shard might be enough to turn things in your favor. As it is, you don't even have ANYTHING that's super-effective against a Dragon-type.

An Ice Shard user is what came to my mind as well, but its distribution is quite limited. Mega Mence is a very hard Pokemon to counter, just about anything will take 50%+ damage at +1. Skarmory is a pretty decent check, I'd imagine Mega Swampert would be quite helpful to you as well.

Hm... perhaps a bulky Unaware Clefable or Quagsire? Ignoring that DD boost is helpful, moreso if you can get in a defense boost of your own.

Switch Stealth Rocks for Spikes on Skarmory. Also, I would switch Aegislash for a Mamoswine with Choice Band/Scarf with the following:

Ice Shard
Icicle Crash
Earthquake
[whatever other coverage move I'm tired and lazy]

I don't even remember the e-mail for my YouTube anymore and don't know how to get it. Enjoy watching old videos though.
