So annoying to go up against this deck, it stops you from playing yugioh. Needs to be limited to 1 along with all the other stall cards that these clowns like to use.

No, It doesn't stop you from playing your still playing, If you dislike playing against a stall deck then learn to counter them its that easy literally stop expecting the format and game to change just so you can have a better win rate against one gimmick deck. Git gud or git rekt

It's not about getting good. Stall decks exploit the fact that most decks can't pack very much backrow removal because they need to use the limited deck space for combo cards to be able to compete with other meta decks. Not to mention traps are much more powerful than backrow removal in terms of advantage, so you often still lose out even if you try to counter it.

All decks have their own strength and weakness. Some hard counter stall deck while some of them = breakfast for stall play. Full stop.
Pair lava golem up with owner's seal and u can tribute two of there monsters and take back your lava golem from your side of the field

Normally the main use for LG is to damage the lp of the opponent? Though could work if he has <3k lp and no protection(monster/backrow). But such a scenario need 2 cards...

[ during each of your standby phases:take a 1000 damage]
Do I read the text right? You mean that I give such a strong monster to my opponent AND take damage to my Lp each turn? What's the point on having it on my deck?

The controller, not the owner, of the card receive the 1000 damage. As you SS it to the opponent's side, the opponent take the 1000 damage in each of his standby phases(if he don't get rid of the monster/its effect).

Thanks for the info. They've done quite a mess on expressing properly the real meaning of this card

Why can't I summon it onto my opponents field using its effect. Is it broken or sum?

Do your opponent control 2 monsters?

Is there any effect that prevents Special Summoning, or prevents monsters from being Tributed?
