At the end of your turn, summon a 2/2 Gnoll with Taunt.
Hogger is super powerful. If you kill him, it's because he let you.

How to get
If not dealt with, Hogger can become a supreme annoyance for the opponent when played. Summoning the 2/2 means that you block at least one attack each turn, giving you immense board control. Hogger's dominating board presence makes it a soft taunt for your opponent.
While Hogger's significance in-game was originally minimal, his relative difficulty at such a low level has caused him to become one of the most well-known and popular minor characters in the game. His role in-game was subsequently expanded with Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm, and a gnoll battle pet named Hogs is planned as reward for the game's 10th anniversary.
