As you can see in the image above, the best deck build for Tyra in Paladins is pretty straightforward. Note that you’ll still need to level your chosen cards as you go along to further improve your Tyra deck. To recap, the best deck build for Tyra in Paladins utilizes the following cards:

  • Burn, Monster!: Fire Bomb now cripples enemies and deals 50% more damage.
  • Salamander Hide: Reduce self damage taken from Fire Bomb by 20-100%.
  • Volatile: Reduce the cooldown of Fire Bomb by 1-5s.
  • Turn The Table: Heal for 50-250 after hitting an enemy with Nade Launcher.
  • Primal Might: Getting an elimination reduces all active cooldowns by 10-50%.
  • Hunting Season: Gain 200-1,000 Health if you kill your Hunter’s Mark target.

To know why the suggested deck build is effective, it helps to know Tyra’s skill set. In Paladins, Tyra comes with the following skills:

  • Auto Rifle: Fire one shot every 0.9 seconds that deals 120 damage. Effective up to Medium Range.
  • Nade Launcher: Fire a grenade that deals 700 damage in a small area of effect.
  • Fire Bomb: Hurl an incendiary device that leaves a pool of fire for 6 seconds. Enemies that contact the fire will burn for 9% of their maximum Health over 0.6s and have their healing reduced by 50%. Continued contact refreshes this effect.
  • Hunter’s Mark: Mark an enemy for 6 seconds. Marked enemies are revealed and take 15% increased damage from your basic attacks.
  • Crossfire (Ultimate): Gain 40% attack speed and 40% movement speed for 4.5 seconds. Firing does not consume ammo.

The reason why we suggested that particular deck build for Tyra is because it maximizes Tyra’s AOE attack, Fire Bomb. This can be extremely useful for dispersing enemies on a Payload or Objective. Additionally, it gives Tyra the ability to take less damage from her attacks, reduce cooldowns, and regen Health.

If you’re looking for an alternative deck build to the one we’ve suggested, you can also give the following Tyra build a try in Paladins.

  • Hunting Party: Hunter’s Mark damage increase now also benefits allies, is increased to 25% bonus damage, and has a 2 second reduced cooldown.
  • Favored Quarry: The reveal portion of your Hunter’s Mark lasts 2-10 seconds longer.
  • Locked and Loaded: Increase your ammo count by 2-10.
  • Primal Might: Getting an elimination reduces all active cooldowns by 10-50%.
  • Tracker: Gain 5-25% movement speed while Hunter’s Mark is active.
  • Hunting Season: Gain 200-1,000 Health if you kill your Hunter’s Mark target.

This deck build changes Tyra’s play strategy to favor Hunter’s Mark and 1v1 engagements rather than AOE. It can be useful for players who like to play as an assassin, picking off enemies one by one. Additionally, it boosts Tyra’s basic Auto Rifle attack by increasing her ammo and damage output. No matter what deck build you end up using for Tyra in Paladins, the important thing is to use it to enhance the skills you use most.

Tyra is a damage champion, meaning she provides crucial team support by eliminating problematic enemies. She can be squishy when cornered, so try to launch Fire Bomb at clustered enemies, and avoid rushing in guns blazing. Let us know in the comments below how you prefer to build Tyra’s deck in Paladins, and what strategies you use to make the most out of this balanced damage Champion.
