Miriam is a new Supporter card in the set. While you can only use one supporter card per turn, she allows you to take five Pokemon from your discard and shuffle them back into your deck, as well as draw three cards. This is a massive advantage against mill decks, as well as for setting up lengthier evolution lines.
