|Golden Ironbeak Owl||400||50|
Core set[edit | edit source]
Two copies of golden Ironbeak Owl (Core) are obtained for winning 500 games across all classes.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Ironbeak Owl is a low-costing source of silence available to all classes, but is somewhat undesirable due to its low stats. In almost every case, Spellbreaker is a better choice, costing only one more mana while having +2/+2 in stats. However, Spellbreaker lacks the Beast tag, which can make Ironbeak Owl slightly more useful in Hunter decks for its Beast synergy. Owl is also useful for Baku the Mooneater decks, since it's an odd-cost card and Spellbreaker is unusable.
