Category for Speed Attacker

Speed Attacker is an evergreen keyword mainly exclusive to Fire Civilization creatures.

Details

A creature with the Speed Attacker ability is able to attack the same turn that they are put into the battle zone, ignoring summoning sickness.

It is usually considered a massive advantage to give all of a player's creatures or all of a player's specific type (such as race) of creature the Speed Attacker ability as it enables them to attack the same turn they are played, enabling high-power creatures to attack the opponent instantly. Therefore, usually cards that do so have a demerit or a requirement for doing so and those that don't are of extreme rarity.

While it is possible for an evolution creature to get the speed attacker ability through other cards and their abilities, they have no use for it, as they are already able to attack as they don't get summoning sickness.
