Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Jirachi - Wishing Star

EX Delta Species


Date Reviewed: 03.23.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1.5
Modified: 3
Limited: 5

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

2005 World

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 it. 5/5

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 quick KO.

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.

Unlimited Rating 2/5
