Counters for Lava Golems


  • Lava Golem was recently nerfed.
  • May take several turns to take down your opponent.
  • Not a suitable strategy for many players.

End the Duel Early

Once Lava Golem is summoned to your side of the field, It may take several turns for it to inflict significant damage to your Life Points. If you have no counters for this card, quickly take down your opponent before it can completely reduce your Life Points.

Destroy Lava Golem

Since the strategy of this Deck depends on Lava Golem staying on the field, any card that can remove it from the field can hinder your opponent's play. It's best to have many counters for this card since this Deck usually contains several copies of Lava Golem.
