This is my favorite card. Sometimes I can even use it twice if I return it back to my hand using different monsters effects. Konami will never limit it because it is easy to counter

It's quite easy to counter those decks. And Kiteroid can only stop 2 direct attacks. No reason to limit Lava Golem decks.
broken card in 4000LP format

Impossible indeed.
Only hard objects can be broken, like glass.

Cards are made of paper and can only be torn down.

And in Duel Links it's not even a real card. It's just a collection of some 0's and 1's. You might be able to break your device but you're not able to break that card in Duel Links.

Lava Golem is an unbreakable card.
I still find it CRINGE when people want to limit this one. What a fail.

There will be a day when Konami forgets about this card and releases something that is kinda broken in combination with this card. The only question is: When is that day?
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.
ban this broken card in 4000LP format

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.

You can't limit stall monsters, there are just too many.
What flames me off is that this card and the flame-holes that play it is the main reason Amazoness Swordswoman was semi-limited. These little flames flamed off a great deck with their flaming around.

On that note, I also flame that we can't swear in the comments anymore and have to say 'flame' instead.
If someone ever limits this card, it has to be thanks to bribery or extortion.

Only a FOOL would think this card is broken. CRINGE.

This card won't be limited, its been in the game forever and isn't overpowered, though it can be annoying when you're on the receiving end of it sometimes :P
This card is easy to beat even with 4000lp I beat these burner decks on a regular basis with a free tk play redeyes deck
people moaning about LG, best card going ,can be countered with a wide range of card, available and used against your OP for a free 3k beater, u people are idiots haha
only dumb people want to limit this card
This card is essentially the monster card version of Treacherous Trap Hole. Please put a limit to this card.
