Default Best Method to Block Unwanted Callers

What's the best method to block those advertising phone numbers consistently calling you all the time? Is there any method with KitKat or does this need to be done with an app?

I use the app "Sanity", which can block, record, and do anything you want with callers and texts.

Doesn't it have by default an option on the call log to just ignore/block some numbers ?

Haven't tried it on my Moto G, but I assume it works
