Jirachi can help you escape from bad opening hands. You can
get 1 card from the top 5 cards in your deck each turn until
you're ready to unleash some good attacks. Even though he
goes to sleep after using Wishing Star, he has a 75% chance
of waking up by the beginning of your next turn, which is
pretty good odds.
Unlimited - Cleffa is a better starter. 1/5
Modified - 3-4 copies of this is used in the holon engine
decks. It's all used in T2 Medicham ex decks. Getting setup
early in the game is cool. 4/5
Limited - Card searching is powerful in this format. Take
Today's card is Jirachi from Delta Species
So, I've been gone for a bit and am not really back :-P.
I was down in New Orleans helping in cleaning up some of
the hurricane hit areas for spring break and I still
have much to do. However, how could I pass up rating my
old wishing friend Jirachi? Let's take a quick look.
The idea of the wishing star Jirachi is quick set up. In
unlimited Cleffa, Computer Search and Oak still
dominate, but Jirachi shouldn't just be pushed to the
side. The main benefit of using Jirachi over Cleffa is
that he allows you to get any card from the top 5 cards
of your deck without using your attack for the turn. The
main drawback is that he will usually be sleeping and
stranded at the active position giving your opponent a
Personally, I like Cleffa and Oak etc. more than Jirachi.
He could be help in quick set up, but after turn one his
card basically become useless compared to other draw in
this format while Cleffa and Oak are still very usefull
even late game. Even though you could use Cleffa Oak and
Jirachi in the same deck, I think you should be maxed
out in draw without him. Play some Mr. Brinney's
Compassion/Scoop Up if you do use him to save from
loosing a prize.
