This deck build is similar to the first one we suggested with added bonus to Dodge Roll. If you are a Cassie player who finds themselves relying on Dodge Roll, this secondary deck build may work better for you. Of course, both are equally viable when it comes to buffering Cassie’s abilities in Paladins.

Cassie is a damage champion, though she plays differently than shooters like Viktor or Tyra. She can be squishy when cornered by multiple opponents, so using her Dodge Roll and natural agility is key to staying alive and maximizing your kills in Paladins. It all depends on your play style as well, so be sure to experiment and work with cards that improve the skills and abilities you use most when playing as Cassie.
