Sarkhan the masterless +1 ability. It becomes a 4/4 dragon with flying. Can it attack that turn? Does it depend if the planeswalker was on the field already or just played?

From the rulings in Gatherer:

A planeswalker that becomes a creature due to Sarkhan’s first loyalty ability can’t attack unless you’ve controlled it continuously since your turn began.

Once it is a creature; it follows the summoning sickness rules just like any other creature.

  • Fun thing to keep in mind and what won me the pre-release at the time. You can give the creature haste with a spell, as you can with any other creature so it can attack right away. The thing what did it for me was the static ability of Samut, Tyrant Smasher. Which gives haste to creatures you control. Together with Menace from Angrath, Captain of Chaos. – Foxdemon Oct 21 '19 at 9:56
