Most influential moves in competitive play?

From your perspective what are your top 5 most influential moves? (If you can name more that's okay)

I think it's something like this:

1. Stealth rock
2. Focus blast
3. ???
4. ???
5. ???

People still use stealth rocks?

Well, I'm more of an unconventional competitive battler, so my moves are going to be weird:

-Amnesia
-Baton Pass
-Magic Coat (this one is loads of fun)
-Sleep Talk
-Taunt

-Toxic
-Wish
-Outrage
-Draco Meteor

Apparently, it's a big thing still because of how cheap it is.

Focus Blast? That's something of a completely random choice. It's not even that great a move, the only pokemon who uses it as a main attack is Virizion. It's just an average coverage move for most pokemon.

I'd say Stealth Rock, U-Turn, Volt Switch, Outrage, Toxic and Substitute. And all moves that recover 50% Health (especially Wish) though I won't list them all.
