The hunter is incorrect. As stated right in the tooltip, Envenom's damage is poison damage. Mastery *does* affect Envenom damage. When the mastery system first launched, there was initially a bug that prevented mastery from properly increasing Envenom damage, but that was fixed pretty early on.
From Elitist Jerks, for nonbelievers:
Mastery is your most valuable secondary stat after spell hit cap and acts on well over 50% of your damage composition (IP, DP, Envenom, and Venomous Wounds) by increasing the bonus you get from Potent Poisons. Baseline Potent Poisons increases your poison damage by 28% and 3.5% for every point of mastery you have (179.28 rating). Similar to expertise, mastery is also not truncated and each point of mastery rating will increase your poison damage.
If yourr top damaging ability isn't Deadly Poison, it was either a fight with a bunch of adds (which you would want to be Combat for anyway), or you have horrible stat coverage.
