Keep in mind that the wall is preferred to Synergize with Tyranitar as the Sand inducer. Also, answers must be written in the standard format. Here's an example for those of you that don't know; a detailed paragraph that explains why it is a great wall in sand will more than likely earn an upvote/BA (Best Answer).

Tyranitar (M) @ Chople Berry
Ability: Sand Stream
EV's: 4 HP/ 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Stone Edge
- Crunch
- Substitute

*This is not the Tyranitar set I'm using btw, Im using a Bulky Mixed set (the best set :P)

Hi, i'm Devil. If you have a few minutes, i would like to talk to you about Gastrodon and what he can do if you let him into your life.
^ Yes, just yes

Claydol... in OU? Because this is OU. And why Protect? It's not that ''obvious'' on your set.
to toxic stall, duh

Special wall, under sand. Why not Cradily. Both abilities Suction cups to trap, storm drain to make water useless plus boost special attack. It's a grass and a ROCK type which means +50% special defense in sand.

For example:

Cradily @ Big Root
Sassy nature(+SpD-Spd)
Ability- Storm Drain
EVs-252 Hp/SpDef 4 Def
Ingrain/Stealth Rock
Giga Drain

This is an overly obsurd wall in sand. Cradily is already slow but it can and will take a hit. Get an ingrain out, with the big root your getting I believe 1/12 of your health back, spam amnesia/Stockpile a few times recover in between then spam giga drain to your hearts content. In allot of cases it way not need setup. Stealth rock is for set if you need it

This set is completely stopped by both toxic and taunt. It's also not really that strong.
60+ Atk Tapu Bulu Wood Hammer vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Cradily in Grassy Terrain: 288-339 (76.5 - 90.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Grassy Terrain recovery
Wood hammer is physical and grass type. Taunt will shut it down, yes, no argument, toxic will as well, yes, no argument,but  the post was for a SPECIAL wall.  So I have an example.

Here's another:
Gastrodon @ leftovers(Sun/Moon Normalium Z)
Ability: Storm Drain
Nature: calm
EVs: 252 Hp 252 SpD 4 SpA
Earth Power

Unlike Cradily it's only weak to grass. Both are slow, but both accomplish the same thing. I just think cradily does it better to an extent

Note that this (part of the) answer is for Generation 7.
I don't know how accurate this statement is, but I think walls that share weaknesses with their teammates are a bad idea. This is because the whole point of a wall is to take hits that its teammates don't want to take (and allow people to see and post wall posts). So here's the best wall I could come up with that doesn't share weaknesses with Tyranitar.

Zapdos @ leftovers
Ability: static
EVs: 248 HP / 240 SpD / 20 Spe
Calm nature
- discharge
- roost
- heat wave
- defog

Heat wave covers grass and steel. Static threatens physical attackers. 248 HP lets it switch into stealth rock 5 times, 20 speed lets it outspeed scarf-less Magnezone and Bisharp, and the rest is dumped into special defense. It's not immune to sandstorm damage, but leftovers and roost let it not care. If you still care, then you can use a Ferrothorn instead.

Ferrothorn @ leftovers
Ability: iron barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 92 Def / 164 SpD
Sassy nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- spikes
- leech seed
- power whip
- gyro ball
Ferrothorn is immune to sandstorm damage and resists water, grass, steel, and fairy, but it's weak to fighting. The EV spread lets it survive 2 hits from Greninja's dark pulse and Zygarde's thousand arrows. Minimum speed maximizes gyro ball's power.

If you want to continuing playing Generation 5 OU and using Tyranitar there, then you should probably use this set.

Amoongus @ black sludge
Ability: regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 28 SpA / 228 SpD
Calm nature
- spore
- giga drain
- fire hidden power
- stun spore
Fire hidden power covers grass and steel. Stun spore can be used if you want to permanently cripple something or not activate the sleep clause. The EV spread lets it reliably one-shot Keldeo's substitutes as long as Keldeo's special defense isn't raised above +2.
