Their wings are silent but their screech is... whatever the opposite of silent is.
|Golden Ironbeak Owl||400||50|
Two copies of golden Ironbeak Owl (Core) are obtained for winning 500 games across all classes.
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.
- Year of the Gryphon rotation (2021-03-30): Moved from Classic to Legacy set.
- Patch 188.8.131.5274 (2016-04-24): Now costs 3 mana (Up from 2).
- Commentary: "Ironbeak Owl is a staple source for an inexpensive Silence in many decks. In line with our overall goal to make Silence effects more costly, Ironbeak Owl is moving from 2 to 3 mana."
