Break Through the Line + Heroic

Asked by RonnieK 4 years ago

Simply put, does Break Through the Line , trigger Heroic?

It's a spell that targets a creature when activated. I figured it didn't, but I just wanted to confirm.

It doesn't target anything as a spell. Break Through the Line's ability can only be activated while Break Through the Line is a permanent.

Additionally, heroic only triggers when you cast a spell that targets the heroic creature. It doesn't trigger for abilities. Ever.

I figured that was the case. The word 'target' lead me to be curious, but I figured since it wasn't literally 'casted' onto it, it wouldn't fly. Thanks Epochalyptik

To be clear: something is only a "spell" when it's still on the stack and being cast. When it's on the battlefield it's a "permanent", and when it's anywhere else it's just a "card".
