Battlecry: Give a friendly Beast +2/+2 and Taunt.
Houndmaster is a tier 3 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
While giving a beast +2/+2 is a substantial buff, giving it Taunt makes it problematic for certain beasts. For most beasts that are priority for stat buffs like Scavenging Hyena and Cave Hydra, they will get killed off too fast for them to take advantage of their powerful attacks. Virmen Sensei is often better, giving the same stat buff minus the Taunt.
Houndmaster is better off being used on Deathrattle beasts, ideally Goldrinn, the Great Wolf, though Savannah Highmane can also be an option. Rat Pack is conversely not a good target for Houndmaster, as this increases its chance of dying early in combat and wasting most of its Deathrattle.
