Missing Clover from SM5!

A new Item card has been revealed from SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Thanks goes to Vincent for the translation!

Missing Clover – Trainer
Item

You may play 4 Missing Clover at the same time. If you play 1 Missing Clover, look at the top card of your deck. Then, put that card back. If you play 4 Missing Clover at the same time, take a Prize card.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

It’s called “Missing” Clover because it’s only one of the four leaves. When you put four of them together, you get a lucky four-leaf clover.

    Exactly what I was thinking! It'll probably have like a 5% win rate, but if you manage to pull it off, you'll feel like a god :D

    I was thinking Metagross-GX, Raticate-GX or Sylveon-GX could work... Then again, knowing my luck, one piece could get prized, or simply discarded by Professor Sycamore. :/

    • Well raticate gx, decidueye gx and gardevoir gx gx's attack could get you discarded one but I don't think its worth the 4 deck slot IMO

    I'd like them to call the English card "Broken Clover". I get what they are going with by calling it "missing", but it's more like "Partial", "incomplete", etc. So why "broken"? It almost fits that theme and this is one of those effects that will probably either be junk or result in something be banned in Expanded about 5 years from now. XP

    I mean, off the top of my head? Sableye (DEX) + Missing Clover + Puzzle of Time.

    I suppose every set has to have a handful of cards like these. They could have made it more interesting, though. If it was only three pieces, it might be more realistic. Maybe it could have been a tool card that you could attach to your Pokemon so they don't have to stay in your hand all game. Or, perhaps it could be something like having all four in your discard pile allows both you and your opponent to draw a prize.

    I can see this being played in Zoroark because of the amount of extra space. Generally bad, but if you don't prize one, there you go. Actually, wait. SABLEYE.

    lol, yeah just do a Zoroark deck with Sableye, 4 clovers, 4 Puzzle of Time, 2-4 Gladion to unprize the clovers/puzzles, and Kartana GX. Just win by cheating prizes. Still terrible, but could be a meme deck.

    4/10 It’s okay. Might be useful in some decks. I might use it to take up some space if I don’t know what to put in a deck, but not very useful.

    Clover is complete and utter garbage, not even Zoroark GX + Mallow can save this.

    Reminds me of Majestic Dawn. Garchomp, Glaceon, Leafeon, Hippowdon, and Manaphy were all in that set.
