In my Elf Commander Deck (edited version of the Guided by Nature 2014 Commander Deck), I have Nissa Revane and as I was looking through the MTG tag of BCGSE I saw this question asking about if elves summoned with Nissa's -7 ability have summoning sickness. Since the answer is yes, I was wondering if there is a green or colorless card that I would be able to use to counter their summoning sickness (preferably an elf that grants other elves haste). Is there a card that would be able to fit into the restrictions of my deck?

  • One thing to consider, do you need to give the creatures haste en-masse? A Heedless One with Swiftfoot Boots or a similar artifact would do the trick. Combine with Wirewood Hivemaster and she should get big enough. – ghoppe Jan 20 '16 at 21:11
  • In addition to @ghoppe, you can use [mtg:Ivy Lane Denizen]. He sees each elf entering with him, so you can order the effects. – Drunk Cynic Jan 21 '16 at 1:37
  • Could this question not have been answered trough the use of a simple gatherer search? – Neil Meyer Jan 23 '16 at 15:57
  • @NeilMeyer The reason why I was asking it on here is because I was hoping for an Elf that would have granted haste (which I did try searching for). – Cyberson Jan 23 '16 at 19:26

A simple search for cards with the words "creatures" and "haste" in their text boxes reveals a couple cards with Green color identity that grant mass haste:

  • Akroma's Memorial is an artifact that grants your creatures Haste, along with a few other abilities.
  • Concordant Crossroads grants all creatures Haste, not just yours.
  • Reflex Sliver gives all your Slivers Haste and Hivestone makes all your creatures Slivers, so together they give all your creatures Haste.

Crashing Drawbridge from Eldraine taps to give all of your creatures haste for the turn.
