Strategy[]

Houndmaster Shaw, on top of having a good statline that's often capable of surviving when played on curve, gives all of your other minions Rush, making your minion double as removal while also protecting Shaw to continue oppressing the enemy's board. Houndmaster Shaw is an excellent card for mid-game board control. Another useful effect of giving your minions Rush is that it gives you an easier way to activate Deathrattle effects, if the opponent has a minion that can kill whatever Deathrattle minion you throw at them. Combine with The WitchwoodVoodoo Doll for instant removal of a chosen target.

Lore[]

Shaw is unique to Hearthstone.

A renowned hunter of criminal, beast, and monster, the man known as Houndmaster Shaw has humble roots. So humble, in fact, that he is rumored to have been raised by a pack of hounds on the streets of the city! While that story is of dubious provenance, there’s no questioning the man’s skills. He has an almost supernatural way with the animals in his care, and he ascended from the gutters into the king’s service as a thieftaker and master of hounds—all on his own merits. He certainly didn’t charm his way into the position—Shaw doesn’t get on nearly as well with people as he does with his four-legged charges—but he does get results. The tracking ability of his prize hounds—Princess, Butch, and Bubba—as well as the shocking speed of his raids on thieves and smuggler’s dens, are the stuff of legend in the Gilnean underworld.
While many others have given themselves over to fear under the influence of the curse, the unflappable houndmaster has been calmly getting to work. The sharp noses of his hounds, as well as his own keen instincts, have put him on the trail of the leader of the Crowskin cult. It’s only a matter of time before he tracks the hag down in her lair.[1]

He has the same surname as Master Mathias Shaw, but the relation between the two characters is currently unknown.
