Fun with double strike

  • Print

As Randy Buehler wrote in January of 2003, the double strike ability is a player-created mechanic that debuted in Legions. A creature with double strike deals first-strike combat damage as well as regular combat damage, which could create some interesting combos with cards that have effects triggered by combat damage. Mirrodin brings us the equipment card Fireshrieker, which bestows double strike on a creature. What are some cards that would benefit from triggering on combat damage twice? Turns out there are quite a few. Can you think of more?
