As Randy Buehler wrote in January of 2003, the double strike ability is a player-created mechanic that debuted in Legions.

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?
