Skyspear Cavalry is one of the newest Magic: The Gathering cards from Wizards of the Coast's expert expansion set Journey Into Nyx. Featured in the Mortals of Myth intro pack, Skyspear Cavalry can potentially deal a massive amount of damage to your rival thanks to the one-two punch of evasion via flying and the awesome ability to deal combat damage twice with double strike.

Pray her spear reaches you first. Her griffin is less kind.
2/2

In limited evasion is huge, and Skyspear Cavalry will allow you to rule the skies. While Skyspear Cavalry's cost may be considered steep at five consider this: It's essentially a 4/2 flyer that'll take out almost every other flyer in the limited format, living against half of them to tell the tale.

If you manage to enchant or equip Skyspear Cavalry it becomes downright dirty. The simple +2/+2 from Observant Alseid transforms Skyspear Cavalry into a massive offensive and defensive weapon.
