    • 3 Galarian Meowth S1W (evolve)
    • 1 Zamazenta V S1H (beatdown)
    • 3 Zacian V S1W (beatdown)
    • 3 Jirachi SM8a (search)
    Trainer (33):
    • 2 Cynthia & Caitlin (draw)
    • 2 Mallow & Lana (healer)
    • 4 Prof. Research (draw)
    • 4 Marnie (draw)

    • 3 Viridian Forest (search)
    Energy (12):
    • 12 Metal Energy


    Start with Jirachi to search for trainer cards and bench Zacian V. Use It’s effect to either draw three cards or accelerate Metal Energy to Zacian V. Use Viridian Forest and Quick Ball to discard Basic Metal Energy and accelerate it to a benched Zacian V with Metal Saucer. Bench two Galarian Perrserker to boost Zacian V, and knock out the defender in one hit. Next turn use Switch or Mallow and Lana to enable Zacian V to attack.

    Why not add ADP for added Prize-taking support? You might not need jirachi there(as well as the escape boards with it) just two dedenne-gx, 2 keldeo gx, and some water energy. What are you cutting? I recommend subbing Cynthia with Marnie and cutting your one reset stamps as well as two of your metal energies, for all the additions...

    Hi cardjammer,

    Thanks for the review. I believe that with the new "no-supporter-one-the-first-turn" rule Jirachi is more needed than ever. I am not that sold on Arceus & Dialga & Palkia GX in this deck. While Altered Creation GX is a nice attack Zacian V does not seem to need the damage boost with Galarian Perrserker on the bench. I do like to idea to run Marnie instead of Cynthia and will be sure to make that change.
