I'd cross him to an ebt, then cross the offspring to a neo (or neo/bm) to make a sick bandog (guardian and heavy hanger). To go purely the hunting route I'd be looking towards deerhounds, wolfhounds and etc. I could do both with him, but probably won't. I do dream of having those two strains- rough haired fast hunters, and guardy neo based bandogs. If I don't develop those strains, I'll instead aim to just have such dogs, usually in a duo. A racey sighthound/bull based dog, and a bull/mastiff based dog.
