Why use Lance when you could use the new and improved Shadow Lance!

In all honesty this card is a classic, back in the day you wouldn't have tons of huge creatures poping out early game (at least not in the games I played) and having first strike on a medium sized body could really make the game.

Equipment back in the good old days of MTG

Did get some use in old white/red creature decks. Lance + Firebreathing could hurt. Not at all useful anymore.

Compared to Holy Strength, Holy Armor, and the various color Wards from Revised, Lance is a pretty weak enchantment. But it is not without its uses (Phantasmal Forces come readily to mind). Sticking Lance on your Serra Angel makes her a more effective attacker and blocker. Putting it on Juggernaut or Craw Wurm is just nasty.

This is an uncommon, Hyena Umbra is common. Go figure that one out.

What's with the insult? I was hinting that Hyena Umbra should have been uncommon, not that this cards rarity was to high.

I prefer Knighthood.

I like this card. Now days an enchantment that only does one simple thing ike "firststrike" would be silly to play as it is basially just giving the opponent a card when they kill your creature, but when this card was played there wasn't a terrible amount of removal, and firststrike was a much stronger ability. But because its so weak not i have to bump it down....2 out of 5

This is also originally from Alpha. Think before you compare.

Beats the hell out of Shimmering Wings.

I cannot remember anyone playing with this when it was current.
