Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) to your opponent's side of the field by Tributing 2 monsters they control. You cannot Normal Summon/Set the turn you Special Summon this card. During each of your Standby Phases: Take 1000 damage.
If you have kaiba's enemy controller and your enemy has 2 monsters you can summon your monster, special summon this monster to your enemy side, then sacrifice your monster to take control of lava golem and get a direct attack.
lol did u not even read the card? " You cannot Normal Summon/Set the turn you Special Summon this card. "
This card might work well with nimble musasabi or weevil deck for that matter. Send 2 monster to you opponent field, tribute those 2 special summon this to their field and they takes 2500 damage right off the bat. The downside is your giving high level to your opponent side.
So, putting this card in a burn deck seems really annoying. You guys think people will run this in that style of deck? I ask because burn decks tend to try and neuter strong monsters and inflict effect damage so it seems to fit.
Parasite decks should find this card pretty useful. Parasites summoned on their field would make summoning Lava Golem easier, and Parasite decks tend to run Mask of the Accursed. Equipping golem with a mask would increase the damage it causes to 1500, while keeping it from attacking its owner. Only problems would be them tributing golem or destroying its mask.
It should say: "The controller of this card takes 1000 dmg"
With a text like this everyone who has not watched the anime will think that the original owner takes the dmg.
Actually, no. The controller of the card takes the damage, and Lava Golem can only be summoned on your enemy side, so... Your opponent takes the damage.
This card can be crazy good on the recent Weevil parasite deck. A new and potent burn, and a simple way to remove troublesome monsters? Great.
