Kuva shildeg is a hammer?

Most likely due to size/combo reasons. The Scythes and their combos are medium sized weapons that can be used with one or two hands with a lot of twirls. The Shildeg is a heavy weapon that requires both hands, meaning it could really only fit into Hammers or Heavy Blades. It's essentially a Heavy Scythe much like Heavy Blades are to Swords without having to make a new category and combo exclusively for it.

Why us this gammer when it's clearly a scythe? It was referred as a scythe in devstream, it's place holder name is kuvascythe and well it's clearly a scythe why is a hammer all of a sudden?

because it looks exactly like the wolf of saturn six's hammer.

to be fair, Kuva Shildeg isn't the first weird hammer. the Volnus looks far more like some kind of Axe, and is slash-based, but it's a hammer. a more recent example is the Masseter, which to me looks more like a hammer type weapon as it reminds me of the Shugoki's giant Kanabo club in For Honor. yet in the end it's an impact Heavy Blade like War.

at this point I just go "whatever, sure" when a weird weapon gets it's stance.
