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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Keep monsters face down and use Feint plan. I have great success with mine
My version of Lava Golem has some success (66% win rate) playing against platinum players. I play as Odion with Chain Reaction. The element of surprise is a big factor of winning. Often my opponent wont know I play a burn deck until it's too late. The major weakness is dead hand and playing against swarm beatdown decks.

Very average deck sorry ive tried similar, your relying on one monster to win the game and most the time its just tribute summoned anyway and using econ you sacrifice your monster/defence just to hit there windstorm, security orb or whatever defence they have then your left wide open for a 3000 attack the following turn
I'm currently using my own created Lava Burn...put him in a deck with fiends (Necrofear,Masked Beast Des Gardius and played correctly you have yhe ability to do effect damage, attack and change of heart. 10-0 with the deck so far and have beaten a KOG!
In my opinion it's a really good deck with Weevil. Lava golem will do at least 1000 Dmg to your opponent even if they can tribute it. The parasite that's in their deck will also do 1000-2000 dmg if you stall until you draw it. Burning land combined with attack and receive will deal a ton of dmg as well. Very easy to win with this if you just stall for a while.
