Ban will never happen, but this card definitely should be Limited at least.

Or semi-limited along with stall monsters like Obnoxious Celtic and Fortress Warrior.

Lava Golem by it self isn’t that bad. But the way players abuse it, makes it degenerate. More often than not, This card is used in stall types of decks, that hide behind backrow, and self protecting monsters.l, and then wait for it to burn away all your LPs. Maybe Komoney will wise up one day like they did for degenerate Weevil decks, and limit all the rest of the cards these clowns like to use in stall decks.

Exactly. Lava Golem itself should be limited, and the stall cards, semi-limited.

Lmao no, stall isn’t good and if you lose to it you just suck
If we're calling for Treacherous Trap Hole ban, can we ban Lava Golem too?

Which is a huge mistake in my opinion. Lava Golem should be Limited to 1, alongside Jade Insect Whistle.

Then put a few other stall monsters (mainly, Obnoxious Celtic Guard, Fortress Warrior, and as a pre-emptive hit, Mask of the Accursed) to Limited 2.

That's all we need now. The Skill nerf is great, but just that alone is not enough.

All those cards you named barely see any play. Can’t remember the last time I seen that mask spell. There are endless ways to remove monsters from the field without battle only scrubs struggle against stall monster cards

Lmao what, "barely see any play"?

Obnoxious and Fortress are now Lava Golem deck's main low level monsters after Swordswoman got semi-limited....

And Mask of the Accursed is a pre-emptive hit. It means, hit the card before people start using it due to the monsters getting hit.

Lava Golem decks aren't even top tier! There's really no reason to nerf this deck one more time.
So if I use this card my opponent loses the 1000 lp?

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.

Kaiju’s have a lot going over Lava Golem. No restriction of wasting your normal summon, can also summon one to your field for free after giving one to your opponent, and really powerful support (Interrupted Kaiju Slumber namely) that really seals the deal.
This card with magic cylinder would be so great in duel links.

Any non-synchro summoned and non-tribute summoned deck will have a hard time against this card. At least Sixs still have a way to get rid of it.

Do we just hear degenerate players cry because their deck got hit on the ban list?

How come Brave Neos cant search this card?
Yeah I'm mistaken but at least the fire one can be used with this skill but not with the win...
