This is one of the best Morph cards out there. Your opponent may let it through, thinking it's just 2 damage, it doesn't matter. Won't they be surprised. Double strike is an obscenely powerful mechanic; that's why this is one of the (the single? ) most powerful double strikers out there.

i tihnk im gonna put together a deck that's able to win on one single attack with this dude. Thinks like Brute Force and Enrage are ridiculous with this card!

4/3 + 3/3 (brute force) = 7/6 double striker = 14 damage!

Skirk Alarmist makes for a VERY surprised opponent

Like Akroma, Angel of Fury, this is made so much more devastating with Momentary Blink, even in a non-red deck. Due to the power of double strike both as an offensive and defensive ability, combat math can suddenly go terribly wrong for your opponent when they take 8 from one missed block on turn 4, or lose a creature they didn't expect to die. Particularly if you are playing blue and such things are unheard of.

One of the first two double strikers, the other being Ridgetop Raptor. This still stands up pretty well eleven years later.
