I thought I'd miss yellow wands

But I don't*. Good job to devs on balancing that loss with great scroll/potion drops.

*I've not played Mu. Do Mu have no way to haste anymore?

Mummies can theoretically haste by casting shadow creatures and getting things that can cast haste other.
I'm with tasonir on this one.

Isn't this only a myth? I mean, there might be slightly more of heal/haste pots, but to me it is not noticeable.

Mummies can haste by following gozag.
Remove spell hunger.

well, I don't miss the wands, so there's that. Anecdotal evidence, sure.

No, yellow (and invisibility) wands were brokenly overpowered, especially once you had a stack of scrolls of recharging.

Monsters never haste or otherwise buff the player, though they can buff other player-owned monsters. Yred would be crazy OP if you could get permanent haste+might by enslaving a troll shaman.
