Lava Golem

October 26, 2012

Lava Golem is a very interesting Monster Card because it is used in many Decks even though it goes to your opponent’s side of the field when the card is Normal Summoned.

Lava Golem can and must be Special Summoned to your opponent’s side of the field by offering 2 monsters on your opponent’s side of the field as Tributes. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this effect? First of all, you cannot Normal Summon or Set any monsters on the turn you Special Summon Lava Golem to your opponent’s side of the field. Lava Golem also has 3000 ATK which can easily be the highest ATK on the field. Despite these disadvantages, there are even greater advantages. You can choose which monsters your opponent controls will be used as the Tributes. Rainbow Dragon is no exception to the rule, so you can get rid of monster(s) with over 3000 ATK by using Lava Golem’s effect. You can also Tribute monsters with nasty effects like Jinzo who negates the effects of all Trap Cards on the field. In addition to that, your opponent loses 1000 life points during each of his/her Standby Phases. Since you Special Summon Lava Golem to their side of the field on your turn, your opponent will lose 1000 life points before he/she can even declare an attack with Lava Golem.

Summing It Up

Lava Golem is a strong monster with a lot of risks. With 3000 ATK, it will be hard for you to defeat Lava Golem once you give it to your opponent. However, your opponent will lose 1000 life points during each of his/her Standby Phases, and that means your opponent has only 4 turns left if he/she cannot get rid of Lava Golem in time. You can also select the monsters that are to be Tributed for Lava Golem’s Special Summon. There are a lot of risks including the fact that you can’t Normal Summon or Set on the same turn, but the rewards are very high. Will you take the risk?
