Blizzard has been creating a slew of Hearthstone ads and the latest two featuring Annoy-o-Tron I particularly liked. Annoy-o-Tron, in my opinion, is one of the most effective ways to lock down the early game as it costs two to bring out and has divine shield plus taunt. When it comes out and I hear the familiar "HELLO, HELLO" I cringe.

This ad is particularly cringe worthy too, but that's the point entirely. When you start Hearthstone you get 100 dust and can craft, right away, two Annoy-o-Trons. I decided to craft the Ironbeak Owl instead which I use in damn near each of my decks and for two it can break near anything cool with Silence.

What do you think, what would you craft and what are your strategies to taking down the Annoy-a-Tron early game? An Ironbeak Owl seems to work well for me.

Here is the other ad for the curious.

I don't recall seeing 100 dust and being able to craft.

As for the Annoy-O-Tron, I've seen it a few times. I don't have a particular, complex strategy for opposing it, I just hit it with something twice (since it has Divine Shield). Sometimes I'll hit it first with my character. It's not incredibly strong.

He can mess things up certainly, I've lost games because we both had lethal damage on the board, but he had a taunt minion out which prevented me from killing him by one hit, but I didn't have enough out to prevent him from killing me the following turn. It's all timing. Depending what stage the game is in, I either use this or this to deal with the annoy-o-tron:
