If you read Nerps, the target is a gear card to be copied not a Runner
it's given to. So what I'm doing in the case is making the Nerps gear
someting that can't be given to Skwaaaaaark. He could give the Walther
to a Thrash he has out, or possibly have to hold onto the gear in his
hand until he puts out another Runner. (As was in some of my other

Skwaaaaaark's not the target of Nerps, gear is (read the card text). I
don't see why I couldn't target any gear in play with Nerps. The
player's out shouldn't affect this, just whether they can then be
equipped with it or not. If I only have a Skwaaaaaark on the table,
I'm still able to draw one of the spells I put in my deck because of
the three mages in there aren't I?

As I said, you're asking for speed rushes and slap-fests then. I'd
simply state that Turbo is now an ork, _then_ pull the card form my
hand and play it. Doesn't seem like the spirit of the game.
