  • Negates the effects of DARK Monsters.
  • Negation applies while this card is face-up on the field.


  • Only affects DARK Monsters.


  • Good against decks mainly composed of DARK Monsters. (i.e. Darklord, Archfiend, Gravekeeper, Dark Magician, Dark World, Destiny HERO, Steelswarm, Dark World, Inzektor)

Similar Effect

Light-Imprisoning Mirror has the exact same effect as Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror except it deals with LIGHT Monsters. Both these cards are counters against the two most prominent attributes in the game.

DNA Transplant

Use DNA Transplant to turn all monsters on the field into DARK attributes. Used with Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror, this will negate all monster effects on the field, but not in the graveyard.

the card text refers to activation but jinzo's effect is continuous and doesn't need to activate
not-so-scary card
EVIL AS F... !!!
darklord killer?
All of a sudden everyone is teching this card in for Darklords
Deadly card, pretty much devastating. Glad it's situational, otherwise it would be really broken.
One single card shuts down my entire deck... why do they release broken crap like this?

unfortunately there's only 1 so far in this game. and chances of you getting it in the beginning is not high enough especially against yubel or shi en who can actually negate it since people usually summon him first turn
I can already hear Yubel mains are crying rn

Seriously instead of nerfing tubeless they force us to use a card specific to attribute instead, they shoulda just added royal decree
