Make missile mirror a defensive buff rather than an offensive debuff

Missile mirror is a very cool spell, but I don't think it would ever become super usefull on the campaign map. I will not speak for multiplayer as I've honestly no idea if it's used or not.

In short, a defensive buff would mean that all incoming missile fire on your friendly unit, would be reflected back. Instead of all missiles fired by one enemy unit, is reflected back.

If it was a defensive buff, you could use it to great effect by simply putting it on a friendly target. Single enteties becomes safe from missile fire, cavalry can charge into an enemy line etc. Yes, it would require re-balancing, but I think it would be worth it.

Currently, missile mirror has little to no use against multiple cheap missile units. Reflecting one unit's missiles makes little difference it there are 8 of them. With the change, it would have more of an effect. Hopefully it wouldn't be too much of a bother to make the AI recognize the effect on higher difficulties to avoid mass suicide.
