The main objective of this deck is to use your card effects to reduce your opponent's Life Points to 0. With the introduction of Lava Golem, burn out your opponent faster by special summoning it to your opponent's field by using his/her monsters as a tribute.

How to use

Get Lava Golem from your Deck

Since we can only obtain 1 copy of Lava Golem, we're going to have a hard time of drawing it from the deck. By having multiple copies of these cards, it greatly increases the chance of getting it. Set these cards and let your opponent's monster destroy it, these two cards have the ability to search Lava Golem from the deck and add it to your hand. They will also serve as your front line defense against attacks in this deck.

Lock Lava Golem

When your opponent has 2 or more monsters on their side of the field, tribute them to special summon Lava Golem to their field in face-up defense position. Then either use Gravity Axe - Grarl to lock him in defense position, or use Mask of the Accursed to prevent him form attacking and add burn.

Prevent Lava Golem's attack

Lava Golem has a very high attack which is dangerous when you get hit by it. Use these cards to prevent your opponent's monsters attack while you have no cards to lock Lava Golem. While Sphere Kuriboh, Enemy Controller and Curse of Anubis is mainly used to switch the position of your opponent's monster to stop their attacks. Additionally if you're lucky and managed to draw Gravity Axe - Grarl you can lock them in defense position.

Burn your opponent more

Deal more effect damage to your opponent by using these cards. A player will receive 500 effect damage during his/her Standby Phase when Burning Land is on the field. It also destroys the field spell of your opponent during the activation.

Parasite Infestation
After starting hands are dealt, 1 or 2 "Parasite Paracide" cards are added to your opponent's deck face up.
Weevil Underwood


Your opponent will see Lava Golem once you search it from your deck. They might delay their summons to prevent you from special summoning it from their field. Jade Insect Whistle gets rid of that problem since it puts Parasite Paracide from the top of their decks. When Parasite Paracide is drawn, its effect forces them to summon it to their field while inflicting 1000 effect damage. Once your opponent has 2 monsters in the field, you can then tribute those monsters to special summon Lava Golem. The controller of this card will receive 1000 effect damage on each of his/her Standby Phase.

It says, "Burn your opponent more." lol Man, they really got into this.
If you play this deck, just uninstall the game.
Whoever made the updated version, their miserable life has no value at all.
Some suggestions for my lava golem deck?

Remove spirit and astral barriers. Just right 20 cards.
Marik needs deck with this, not this nerdy, lame ass wanker. What's the point of such big presentation of lore and graphic with trying to mirror anime if other will use his cards and not him?

This remembers me of those times when people would use Blue Eyes with Joey's Last Gamble and Red Eyes with Kaiba's Beatdown. It's quite irritating that most character-exclusive Skills can't help their own signature monsters and archetypes competitively. Crowler's AG decks and Mai's Harpie decks are an exception.

Or how until recently everyone used Cyber Style for everything except Cyber deck.

And yeah, it's annoying how most of the character-specific Skills don't help their own playstyle.....

Konami must do something about this decks, BAN Lava Golem! Too powerful for a 3 slot field! No difference to Bambu Swords, You just sit and watch your LP decrease in no time.
