Believe it or not, Hedwig is one of the best critters in the game. You should not underestimate the power of pulling any non-healing card out of the discard pile. As Hedwig only takes one action to play, you can frequently cast that card right away if it's a spell, like Steelclaws or Halloween Feast. I also like to use Hedwig to get key adventures, like Through the Arch and Privet Drive. As an added bonus, he even flaps on over and pokes your opponent in the eye for 1 damage a turn. Wonderful! This may even provoke your foe into swatting him out of the sky, which just gives you the chance to play him again. Since he is unique, I would avoid putting more than two in your deck. But if your deck contains creatures at all, he's a must-have for inclusion.

What is that in the sky? A bird, a plane, NOPE! I was right the first time, a bird! Hedwig is your fill in the blank card every time for creature decks. She is not only a lovely model Snowy White Owl, but she really delivers! She can give one of your other discarded creatures a second chance. Or with her most popular move on the planet, giving that same Steelclaw a back-to-back showing on the table. If you're a creature player, with a wing and a prayer, you should surly find room for her in your deck somewhere.

This type of ability you'd expect in a spell, but in a creature. It doesn't do much damage, but getting one card back to your hand to play again is always a good thing. If you play Quirrel, you can return it to your hand and then play it again to get another card from your discard. Since it's also unique, you probably won't need more than two at the most in your decks. The other owls let you get a specific "type" of card, but Hedwig lets you get ANY [non-Healing] card from your discard. She may take a while to get out, but in the end, I'd say it'd definatly be worth it.
