<< First the card text:

State of Confusion / Stinger
Cost: 2¥
You may choose a new, legal target for a Special card just played.

I got to thinking of the fun ways this could affect Nerps!

Cost: 3¥
Unique. Choose a target Gear card (except Spirits and Drones) and
treat Nerps! as an exact duplicate of that card.

Tony goes to Nerps! a copy of Muscle Replacement for Skwaaaaaark only
to find Nerps! is a copy of his Glitz's Walther Palm Pistol instead. :o)

Now here's the twist. Let's say Tony is again Nerpsing the H-man's
Muscle Rep for his Skwaaaaaark. I toss out SoC and instead target it
to duplicate my Ice Queen's Redirect Datatrail. Tony doesn't have any
Deckers out. Can he tuck the Nerps'd RD back in his hand for when he
can get Caeser out? Does it stay a copy of RD in that case?

Same type of scenerio except I know Tony doesn't have any Mages in the
deck so I target Nerps on my Tempest's Combat Fetishes. Does Tony just
discard the Nerps in this case, as he has no practical way to use the
CF copy?

i wouuld say that your target on the nerps actually is who the nerps goes on,
so instead of giving him tempest's combat fettishes, you would have to give a
runner a muscle replacement, as long as you have a non magical runner out on
your side, your opponent doesnt end up with the muscle rep at all.

Ok, a different twist on SoC. Sudden Goblinization (SG).

Sudden Goblinization / Stinger
Cost: 2¥
Target Human Runner is transformed into an Ork or troll (owner of
Sudden Goblinization chooses). Modify the target Runner's Threat
Rating as follows: Ork: +1/+1, Troll: +2/+2 (A+1) and target Runner
loses all skills.

Tony is wanting to beef up Turbo a bit, and tosses out SG while saying
that Turbo is monkeying-out and becoming an ork. I think it'd be more
interesting a different way. If I use SoC on his SG, can I target
H-man instead and make him a troll (thus taking his skills)? Is the
choice of race part of the targetting of the card, or since Tony had
already said it was to make Turbo an ork as the card is coming out, is
the race already locked in? (Potential speed/slap-fest issue.)

here also i would have to say that you are just rechoosing the reciprent of
the special, not how the special is being played (sorta like a deflection in
