Copy target activated ability X times. You may choose new targets for the copies.

For the Gatling Terramorphic Expanse? I'd be pretty loathe to restrict this with a long line of "target activated ability that was activated by a creature". Plus, considering you're tapping Terramorphic Expanse to do that, you are really paying to do that on turn 3. So long as the set doesn't contain a Terramorphic-variant, I'd think it'd be pretty safe.

I was more thinking about how omnipresent fetchlands are, you could realistically fire it off your opponent's.

Preferred Pronoun Set: he
Firing off your opponents' fetchlands is red rampant growth in the same way that stifling them is blue LD.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Should probably just be Copy target activated ability, you may choose new targets

(also why isn't "you may choose new targets" just the default. it should only clarify when you can't. is there a single spell-copy effect in the game for which you can't choose new targets?)

The ones that force the targets to be a specific thing. See Radiate, Beamsplitter Mage.

You could probably pretty reasonably change the comp rules to make "choose new targets" the default for copied objects on the stack, but it would be slightly less elegant wording-wise because the current wording for copiable qualities for objects on the stack is just "choices made when casting or activating it", which is a big blanket term that covers everything.
