One possibility - as this & another website says - is that this skill is another one of 3 skills to be usuefull for a Bad Reaction to Simochi OTK-Deck.
This 🔥 deck still lives as I saw some failed abortions using it with 🔥 insects like Man Eating Bug. They're using the 2 Amazoness they can, and the typical backrow 🔥. One of them even had the nerve to grind for Mask of Restrict... more banlist hits are needed.

if you can, stay in platinum till end of the season
It's definitely a big hit to 🔥 burn decks. But since it still allows for a deck with this skill to have Lava Golem, it's sadly not the end. They can fill the 4 insect requirement with Man-Eating Bug, Krawler Spine, 4-Star Ladybug and Naturia Dragonfly for that 🔥 style of play.

In addition to semi-limiting Lava Golem, they would need to semi limit a few of the other stall cards as well, if they truly want to 🔥 Lava Golem decks.

Realistically, Lava Golem + Swords Woman along with the Parasite Infestation nerf would be all that's necessary to make burn kinda not worth it anymore. The backrow and other monsters typically aren't the win conditions of the deck, it's usually the damage from Golem and Swords Woman.

That's right, it's still a big hit... all that backrow 🔥 isn't a guaranteed win without Swordswoman... I hope those horrid decks become less common now. Desperado screws them hard as well.

"They haven't stopped to think that"... true of most of them. I've seen a parasite burn player Floodgate that monarch frog... those guys are complete idiots.
Weevil didn't play burn to be honest, his deck was always insect type-based
It has become totally useless now. It was a good average skill for PvP duels. The goal to restrict your opponent by taking away a draw phase has been good. And the 1000 dmg come on, that is the same as giving me a 1000 LP at the start of a battle. I can argue that having 1000LP more than enemy at start of duel can immediately give me upper hand (Aromage for example). I have seen many methods to avoid parasite skill: shuffling decks, full fields, chaining rainbow life..
Konami ruining the fun of PvP by limiting this skill.

Warm Worm isn't that good of a choice now that the meta likes having cards being sent to the Graveyard.

Gold Ladybug doesn't really benefit Lava Golem Parasite decks. You'll only run 1 since you need different names, and 500 LP per turn isn't that much. Not to mention its 0/0 stats.

Well, it's not always the stats that matter.
My favorite thing to happen is when you find out there was only one parasite in your deck when they use the whistle after you got one and nothing happens. XD

IMO they need to add card destruction and stop catering to burn decks

IMO, people need to stop bi*ching about burn decks or just stop playing yugioh lol..
My luck against this skill is having it drop on my first draw phase. Every. Time.

Not sure if that's a glitch cuz I get that as well whenever I duel weevil player I ALWAYS go SECOND AND THE TOP CARD IS ALWAYS THE PARASITE.
Neos summon
I used Neosphere summon for fusion fodder to summon my elemental hero monster bahaha
