|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 the lowest costing source of Silence for all classes, but unfortunately comes with terrible 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.
