Aegislash is generally:
-Sacred Sword
-Shadow Sneak
-King's Shield
-Sword Dance

You want to go for a low speed Aegislash because his King's shield has priority, as does Shadow Sneak. Basically you'll either go into king's shield on the first turn unless you think the other person is going to switch/buff in which you'll use sword's dance. At that point you can decide if you think you'll 1 hit them with shadow sneak, or if you should use King's Shield to get into shield mode. If you go into shield mode, you can use Sacred Sword the next turn, and if you're slower then their pokemon, they'll hit you in shield mode, decreasing the damage greatly.

Brave Nature with full EVs in Attack & Defense.

When in Shield Forme, his base defenses are 150. He can take hits of any type with that kind of defense. You could split 252 between both Defense & Sp. Defense, but he'll take one less EQ if you do, & his King's Shield can only lower Attack Power, it's easier to focus him as a Attack Sweeper/Defensive Wall & have another Pokemon be the dedicated Special Wall, but if you want him to have more universal survivability, then you can get away with putting points into both Defenses.

252 hp, 252 att. HP is generally better defense, then either of the defense stats.

For the last Dark slot:
Contrary Malamar (I just like this thing so much)
Pangoro (I would like it so much more if it had Mach Punch...)
Mega Absol *IF YOU ARE NOT USING Mega Gengar*
Hydreigon (can take the Fire-attacks)
Krookodile / Scrafty (The Moxie brothers... Always have a use in-game)

For the last Ghost slot:
Jellicent (takes fire attacks well, can threaten things out with Ice Beam and Scald)
Chandelure (takes the fire attacks best w/ Flash Fire)
Golurk (was surprisingly good in my last White playthrough)
Mega Bannette (165 attack w/ Shadow Sneak, not to mention Prankster) *IF YOU ARE NOT USING Mega Absol or Mega Gengar*
Shedinja (for teh lulz)

Totally forgot about hydreigon. Gonna use him and..... Well does malamar have the defenses to take a fire attack? If so I'll drop hydreigon, use malamar and probably pangoro/jellicent.
