Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Grizzly is a useful 3 mana 3/3 Taunt. It is the cheaper version of the Sen'jin Shieldmasta, a 4 mana 3/5 taunt. The Grizzly has the advantage of being slightly cheaper, but is far less survivable.

The main advantage possessed by the Grizzly over other taunt minions is that it is a Beast card, offering synergy with hunter cards such as Starving Buzzard and Scavenging Hyena. It works especially well with the Scavenging Hyena since the opponent's minions are forced to attack Ironfur Grizzly, giving Scavenging Hyena higher stats.

If used by a Warrior, Fierce Monkey should be the preferred card over the Grizzly, as it has 1 more Health. If Beast synergy is not a factor, then Hired Gun is superior to it, which has 1 more Attack.

Lore[edit | edit source]

"Ironfur" is a designation given to a number of bears found in Feralas. The name may be a reference to the colour of these gray bears' coats, or their toughness.
