    If the Runner chooses to use Carnivore, can they draw with René “Loup” Arcemont before trashing cards from their grip?

    No. The Runner must fully resolve Carnivore’s ability before the trigger condition on Loup’s ability is met.


Loup Dogg - Who Am I (What's My Name?)

From the depths of the net, back to the block

Loup Doggy Dogg, Funky, well that’s just anarch

Went solo on that ice, an’ it’ll never be the same

Weyland is the spot where I served my game

Follow me, follow me, follow me, follow me, and never lose your grip

Botulism is the rhythm for me to f*** up s***

So I ain't holdin nuttin back

And mother* * * * * I got a stack of creds in my sack

It's like that and as a matter of fact [rat-tat-tat-tat]

Cuz I never hesitate to put a server on its back

[Yeah, so peep out the office where ya sit

You see that it's a must we drop gangsta s***]

What's my motherf* * * * * name?


Loup Doggy, Do-owww-ohhhh-oggg (yeah yeah yeah)

Loup Doggy, Do-owww-ohhhh-oggg (the bomb)


Do-do-do-do, doo-doo-doo-da-dahhh! (Dog)

Finally a 40 cards deck in anarch that is easier to trigger than Nathaniel "Gnat" Hall: One-of-a-Kind.

Now, it has to be known that René "Loup" Arcemont: Party Animal is a nonbo (does not combine) with Stargate, Maw and Wanton Destruction. because you must access the card. The ID would have been much more powerful if it could.

But it combine very well with Imp, letting you gain great value from it. You can, of course, just trash by paying, which basically give you a free draw and 1 credit back after paying for the trash cost, making those actions hurt less, which is great.

Note that Hippo is just as good, as it will trigger the ID also.

The 40 cards deck size is nice, as it allow you to build a smaller deck, giving you a more consistent play experience. Building smaller deck come with its own set of problem, as card slots are much tighter. But tech card with only 1 copie of it are much more likely to come to hand.

I love that this ID is giving you incentive to use the iconic way that anarch interact with the corp, which is by trashing the corp cards.

While I would not go so far as to say it is a top tier ID in term of competitiveness, it is top tier in term of flavor.

The art is truly amazing (what a beautiful specimen), the quote is fun and the ID is fun to use. Kudos to the devs!

Nice review! But I just wanted to say that Loup's ability does not trigger off ice destruction like Hippo either. Perhaps you meant Carnivore?

Indeed you are not accessing the ice. You are encountering it.
