Wait til we get Kaijus

Kaiju at least doesn't also try to slowly kill you.

The only reason people in OCG/TCG use Kaiju over Lava Golem, is because Lava Golem has no support, and no one bother to stall for 8 turns when other cards can finish the duel faster. The second reason in particular, doesn't apply in DL because DL only has 4000 LP instead of 8000, making it only 4 turns to kill the opponent, which is fast enough.

Kaijus don't prevent you Summoning in the same turn, which is a big deal. Also, the primary reason people use Lava Golem over a Kaiju is because it Tributes 2 monsters instead of 1. (It's still much less common than both Kaijus and Ra Sphere Mode, however.) The fact it's not a Kaiju is usually only relevant for getting rid of Gameciel.

I'm surprised we haven't gotten Santa Claws in DL yet.

Lava golem -
Does anyone know, if you use the effect of a flip card (Hane hane or similar), is it going to return into your hand or the hand of the opponent?

It will return to the owners hand.

Well. I'll ask differently. Who is the owner?

Sorry, thought that was clear. You are the owner of all cards that belong to your (original) deck. You are the controller of cards that are on your side of the field. So, if your opponent summoned Lava Golem to your side of the field, you are the controller of Lava Golem (and get the damage :-). If Hane-Hane returns Lava Golem to hand, it will go back to your opponents hand.
If burn is such a problem why don’t they increase the amount of cards you get in hand

Because that doesn't help?
That would also benefit the Lava Golem decks even more than helping us.

they should change the card ruling, cannot lay spells trap or monster on the turn you lay this card so this way they can’t screw you over on turn 2, they would have wait till next turn to summon it with there traps and magic cards,

I do not play Six sams but I think this card is not very fair in Neos decks, too much protection

Toss them from hand i mean
And so this way burn decks can brick and destroy there plethora traps rather than use them lol
So this way people actually have a chance to get the card need to remove lava golem
screw people who uses this card to camp
Needs to be limited to one. Stall decks are degenerate.

Yeah, sorry, I mean Mask of the Accursed.

As for Weevil's skill, a nerf that they should do is making it so that the skill requires taking damage first to activate, and always put only 1 Parasite, not 1 or 2.

or nerf the skill into being usable only if you have 5 different Insect-Type monsters in your Deck.

Campers abused this card for "stalling".
