Does Clear Shot trigger Mirrorwing Dragon's ability?
Asked by Cookieboy1221 3 years ago
It works the way you want it to.
Mirrorwing Dragon looks at a spell's controller whenever it's targeted. If that player has creatures that the spell can also target, a copy will be made for each one that it can target and will target it. If your opponent casts Murder, then all of their creatures will have a copy of Murder targeting them, provided they're legal targets. However, if you cast Clear Shot, then a copy will be made for each creature you control that is a legal target (doesn't have Shroud or Protection from Green or Instants, looking at you Emrakul, the Promised End)

Clear Shot has two targets and will not trigger Mirrorwing Dragon's ability. The gatherer ruling makes it clear that any other object or even a player being targeted will make it so the ability doesn't trigger.
7/13/2016: The ability triggers whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell that targets only Mirrorwing Dragon and no other object or player.

Creatures don't target anything. That's a false distinction. Clear Shot defines two targets. It's irrelevant that those targets interact at all; Mirrorwing Dragon's ability only cares about the number of targets. It can only trigger if there's a single target and that target is Mirrorwing Dragon.
