Table of Contents

Houndmaster is a Hunter-only minion. 2 copies of this card are given to you with the Basic set of the game. You receive a golden version of this card for reaching Level 28 and 30 with Hunter. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Houndmaster is a powerful card that represents an immense amount of value if it is able to be activated on a Beast. If you are playing Houndmaster in your deck, you should generally wait until you are able to activate it on a Beast before you play it. However, you should not be afraid to play it out as a threat if you do not have a strong alternative available.

2. Constructed Play

Houndmaster is essential in Midrange Hunter decks to build upon the platform that you lay down with early game cards like Haunted Creeper or Webspinner. In the late-game, it can be combined immediately with Unleash the Hounds or an Animal Companion for immediate value.

3. Arena

Houndmaster is a strong card in Arena if you have enough Beasts in your deck to reliably activate it. In Arena, even more so than in Constructed, you need to be prepared play out Houndmaster as a standalone minion if you do not have a strong alternative available.
