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.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Ironbeak Owls are neutral level 44-45 owls found in Felwood.

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."
