Just when I thought Garbodor was a punisher of heavy item use... Now we have this Alolan Muk that punishes just having lots of items in decks.

Depending on how well GarboMuk does, it might warp the meta back to heavy supporter builds to counter it. Although having two stage 1 lines, along with other attackers might be a bit clunky to play.

Jirachi is great, but that tyranitar is solid too. A 1 prize attacker, or no prize attacker with stadium doing 1 and a half flying flips and 170 hp. Not to mention, if set up he ohkos most gxs. I would probs focus on the first attack tho, with 1 black market and a bunch of shrines

But Jirachi makes itself go to sleep...
Tyranitar, as the THIRD TYRANITAR IN THE LAST 3 SETS is really good. Slap a Counter Energy and DCE and blow 2-3 prizes up.

The Jirachi reprint is kind of nice. A little less powerful, sure but still good. Still want my Quick Search Pidgeot but it might be too good.

A lot of decks play several switches already, if not Escape Board is perfect for getting you out of this little guy I guess. I'm sure a deck will find a way to use it somehow.

If you're running a deck based around dawn wings or solgaleo gx, then jirachi falling asleep isn't a big concern.

I'm not sure how good scry 6 is, especially considering you have to retreat into it to get the effect.

Solgaleo-GX can abuse Jirachi pretty easily. Getting the chance to pull a card you need, like rare candy for Metagross, use Ultra Road, and you're still left with your option to retreat for the turn in case you have more shenanigans in place.

Actually, he OHKOs all GXs with a Choice Band.
