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.
This card with magic cylinder would be so great in duel links.

Everyone calls him a Villain, but I call him a savior.

Get 🔥ed, Sams
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.
Will be even better thanks to the new support coming in the mini box.

Maybe they will limit him for real. LOL
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.
Did I just heard six sams users crying from this card?;))

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?

This guy's a necessary evil right now with all the stuff running around the place like Desperado, Brave Neos and Shi En

Good card I use it in my Brave Neos deck
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,
