Arcane Missiles:

This spell casts 3 individual missiles at randomly selected hostile characters.

Acolyte of Pain:

Whenever this minion takes damage, draw a card.

  1. I have an Acolyte with 3 life
  2. Opposing player casts Arcane Missiles
  3. Multiple projectiles hit my Acolyte

How many cards will I draw?

    Not quite what was planned.

You will draw for each time the card is hit. Its ability activates each time it takes damage, not the damage it's taken for the whole turn.

    Notably, you draw before the rest of the missiles are fired. The triggered effect actually interrupts the Missiles' resolution.
