With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
A card chosen in many decks thanks to its powerful Silence effect. With its low cost, it is a cheap solution to an enemy minion which has a strong effect or has been buffed by many spells. Ironbeak Owl is a great low-cost counter to the popular Twilight Drake, as the silence will reduce the Drake to a 4/1 regardless of how much health it gained from the Battlecry. Ironbeak Owl is particularly desirable for hunter decks thanks to their Beast synergy, making this an even more valuable card.
