If all you're looking for is a bulky sweeper, Brick Break provides the best possible coverage alongside Aerial Ace. Roost makes sure Scyther keeps surviving, and allows it to stall out weaker Electric- and Ice-type attacks. Plus it can Roost off the Stealth Rock damage if your Rapid Spinner dies out sooner than expected.

Your choice for the final moveslot depends on what role you want Scyther to fill. If all you're looking for is a bulky sweeper, Brick Break provides the best possible coverage alongside Aerial Ace. However, Scyther is capable of passing Attack boosts via Baton Pass.
