I'm looking to make a support Shiftry for doubles. Can I get advice?

It's tricky to know how to build this, but this is what I have so far:

Shiftry - Chlorophyll
Fake Out - Defog

As I already have a Megazard Y on my team, I think it would help; it could also potentially help in dealing with pranksters (with Fake Out) or screen setters.

Though, I'm not sure on the item, whether to go physical or special, or the third or fourth moves.

I'm considering as a possibility:

Swords Dance - Bullet Seed - Kings Rock
Nasty Plot - Dark Pulse/Leaf Storm/(other special) - (item undecided)

Thoughts? I'm considering options at the moment.

If you'd like to suggest against it, would you mind expanding?
I find a lot of mons that are kind of crap in singles shine in doubles, at least to a greater extent than normal.

I might try out a physical one with the moves I suggested and see how that goes.

It's a shame that the most effective method of testing these sets is also the mode in which my losses are recorded :P

Eh. They do different things. Mandibuzz doesn't have Fake Out, and is weak to SR.

I've seen Rocks used. It's mostly for getting rid of Safeguard, screens, etc, though.
