  • Quick-Play Spell makes it useable in many situations.


  • A minus one when used outside of battle.


  • Use this card during battle to weaken your opponent’s monsters.

Similar Effect

Here are some other cards with similar effects. Use them when your opponent attacks into your monster. Weaken the opponent’s monster so it is the one destroyed during battle.

Reverse Trap

Use Shrink on your own monster and then activate Reverse Trap. Instead of halving your monster’s attack, it will gain attack equal to half it’s attack.

What are the reasons to play this over hallucigenia? Actual question and not sarcastic

1. Quick play spell. No worries of back row removal. Can use in the same turn you draw it.

2. Good against anti trap/ jinzo deck.

Jinzo/anti-trap decks, but you should probably just use the Paleozoic instead.

Here’s the thing about shrink
Quickplay so can be played at any time
Unlike traps you have to set to use which if they first turn jinzo or cosmic or galaxy your trap before summonthe trap is useless
Unlike super rush this allows you to damage your opponent
Where rush stalls
Most monsters beingused aren’t buffed that prevents this reduction.
The top decks will be affected by this card.
Also can add to more defense
Paleo cards
Super rush
Good game

Also as said cards immuned to trap cards this is another work around
Only monster in game immune to spells that’s used is silent magician decks. So obviously it’s useless there
It’s a good tech at 1-2 definitely not a 3 in deck card though

Well yes and no, trap cards can't be activated in one turn and there's a few monsters not affected by traps, also if you run TTH it won't ruin it.
However they are a few cards that aren't affected by this card too...

- Only half original attack
- Only reduce attack so it can't be used against high def monster
- Can't summon a monster like hallucigenia

Even gravity lash has almost the same effect and it is a minibox R.

Shrink and Gravity Lash both should have been SR IMO. Shrink definitely shouldn't have been UR. (Or it should have been released as an UR earlier, one of the two.)

Eh, I can only see people using this well with burn decks that have swordwoman. halving her attack and swinging would always be a good idea + you can use on opponent sooo.

Depending on the stats, Gravity Lash could be better and it's just SR.

This is a QUICKPLAY SPELLCARD! You can active on your turn, not affect by Jinzo, can chain to any card removal effect. Only downside is half ORIGINAL attack.

This is likely to be the New Canadia, Drowning Mirrorforce, Floodgate, Hallucigenia. TOP tech.

We already have gravity lash. Granted it's less consistent than this.

Rather use super rush, which is way easier to get your hands on than some UR in a big ol main box.

I guess this card can potentially win you the duel through battle damage. But it’s not worth blowing resources on a main box to most likely not get.
