TCG Rulings

Judge Program Forum Rulings

  • Summoning "Lava Golem" makes it so that player is unable to Normal Summon for the turn. Similar to how if your Normal Summon gets negated, you are still unable to perform another Normal Summon for the turn, the same applies to the Special Summoning of "Lava Golem".[1]

OCG Rulings

  • This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set.[3]

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • Shining Elf: When your opponent Special Summons "Lava Golem" to your side of the field, it is still treated as your opponent Special Summoning a monster, so you can activate the effect of "Shining Elf".[6]

Previously Official Rulings

  • "Lava Golem" must be Special Summoned to your opponent's side of the field using its effect text; you cannot Special Summon it or Tribute Summon it to your side of the field.
  • However, if Special Summoned correctly and then sent to the Graveyard, you can use "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon "Lava Golem" to your side of the field, but you (as the controller) will then take the 1000 damage during your Standby Phases.
  • You cannot Summon or Set and then Special Summon Lava Golem.
  • Since Tributed monsters are not considered to be targeted, you can use "Lava Golem" and Tribute your opponent's Dragons even if he has "Lord of D." on the field.
