Battlecry: Give a friendly Beast +2/+2 and Taunt.
Houndmaster is a Tier 3 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.
While giving a beast +2/+2 is a substantial buff, Houndmaster giving Taunt makes it problematic for certain Beasts. For most beasts that are priorities for stat buffs, like Scavenging Hyena, Rat Pack, and Cave Hydra, giving them Taunt will cause them get killed off too fast for them to take advantage of their powerful abilities. 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.
