Why do we care? It is one less Lava Golemn out in the world for us to worry about running into in battle, although I am sure this person didn't really trade his.

I doubt that golem is a 2 for 1 card which is really harsh in a game with 4000 lp format a second one summoned equals a 3 for 1 considering u have to use a card to get rid of it only 2 be hit again cause most likely its destiny draw yugi

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.

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.

how is this a good card giving the opponent a strong card plus taking damage?
<< Anonymous(mike)

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. "

Blast Held by Tribute won't work. Card description says "special summoned to opponents field".

My Nerd Is L Reply
That's exactly why they said mask + blast so that they can't tribute the golem without losing the monster ya dummy :P

But if you already had a monster it would work

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.

Or use "Symbols of duty" to revive any monster from either players graveyard by tributing 1 normal monster.That way u won't have the lava golems affect and it will basically Be a normal monster

Dude, 2 monsters tribute, then you give a 3000 atk monster to your enemy, unless you have 3 masks, to hold this guy, you just will be digging your own grave in parasite deck, think about

Who takes the 1000 damage? the original owner or the one who controls it on field?

Well the question gives you two options as to who can take the damage, so by responding "who the hell else" suggests a you can't read or b you're dumb af

The wording on the card is a bit confusing it should say "the controller of this card" but since it doesn't it's the person reading (IE:the controller not original owner)that takes the damage

Needs to be limited to one. Stall decks are degenerate.

Mask of restrict isn't at game yet.Do you mean mask of the accursed?
<< Anonymous

Yeah, sorry, I mean Mask of the Accursed.

As for Weevil's skill, a nerf that they should do is making it so that the skill requires taking damage first to activate, and always put only 1 Parasite, not 1 or 2.

or nerf the skill into being usable only if you have 5 different Insect-Type monsters in your Deck.

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.
