Does it work with graverobber?

No, Graverobber is only for SPELL cards, not traps.
Does this work with The Immortal of Thunder? THAT WOULD BE OP PLZ REPLY!

Considering neither of those cards are kinds of effects you can use Barrel on anyway, that wouldn't help.

The Immortal of Thunder doesn't inflict damage.

Barrel Behind the Door can only be chained to the ACTIVATION of a Spell/Trap Card (IE, when it's placed face-up on the field), not to the effect of one, hence why Aegis of Gaia doesn't work.

And, actually, the effect of Aegis of Gaia doesn't start a chain, so you can't chain ANYTHING to it anyway.

Also tried it with Destruction of Destiny. No luck

Destruction of Destiny isn't guaranteed to deal damage, so you can't use it on that, either. (Or other cards that aren't guaranteed to, like Time Wizard or Dicephoon.)
lava golem?
Does this work with mirror Wall?

No. Understand cost vs damage.

But why would someone put barrel behind the door?
It doesn't work with cards you control, phew. Tried destruction of destiny, burning land and Axe of fools. Is counter trap only usable against opponent cards?

It doesn't work against cards that aren't guaranteed to burn (Destruction of Destiny) or Spell/Trap effects, only their activations. The latter's typical of Counter Traps in general.

Spell of Pain works on Spell/Trap effects like Burning Land's because it's not a Counter Trap. (Still won't work on a card like Destruction of Destiny that isn't guaranteed to inflict damage, though.)

To prove my point that it's not because you were trying to counter your own card effects, it'll work on a card like Memory of an Adversary or Supremacy Berry.
