So.. basicaly create custom ability based on single target one (best choice would be channel here) and set "targets allowed" to: building, neutral.

Now, create a trigger that responds on casting event.

  • init
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Starts effect of ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to CustomEntangle
    • Actions
      • Set p = (Position of (Target unit of ability being cast))
      • Unit - Create 1 dummyUnit for (Triggering player) at p facing Default building facing degrees
      • Unit - Add 0.7 Generic expiration timer to (Last created unit)
      • Unit - Add Entangle Gold Mine to (last created unit)
      • Unit - Order (last created unit) to Night Elf - Tree of Life: Entangle (Target unitb of ability being cast)
      • Custom script: call removeLocation(udg_p)
'p' - location variable;
Order action can be found in 'Unit' actions section at 'Issue Order Targetting An Unit' -> from filter select: Night Elf - Tree of Life: Entangle;
you have to create dummy unit to make it looks properly.
dummy unit is one created for dummy-spell purposes, it owns no abilities apart from Invurneability and Locust; should have no collision, no model; no shadow and it's attacks should be disabled. Additionaly it's vision sight and Score-points amount should be reduced/nulled too.

  • Untitled Trigger 018
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Is issued an order with no target
    • Conditions
      • (Issued order) Equal to (==) (Order(unroot))
    • Actions
      • Multiple FunctionsIf (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)

          • Unit - Unpause (Triggering unit)
          • Custom script: call SimError(GetTriggerPlayer(), "Not enough mana,")
        • Else - Actions
JASS:
library SimError initializer init
//**************************************************************************************************
//*
//*  SimError
//*
//*     Mimic an interface error message
//*       call SimError(ForPlayer, msg)
//*         ForPlayer : The player to show the error
//*         msg       : The error
//*    
//*     To implement this function, copy this trigger and paste it in your map.
//* Unless of course you are actually reading the library from wc3c's scripts section, then just
//* paste the contents into some custom text trigger in your map.
//*
//**************************************************************************************************

//==================================================================================================
    globals
        private sound error
    endglobals
    //====================================================================================================

    function SimError takes player ForPlayer, string msg returns nothing
        set msg="\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n|cffffcc00"+msg+"|r"
        if (GetLocalPlayer() == ForPlayer) then
            call ClearTextMessages()
            call DisplayTimedTextToPlayer( ForPlayer, 0.52, 0.96, 2.00, msg )
            call StartSound( error )
        endif
    endfunction

    private function init takes nothing returns nothing
         set error=CreateSoundFromLabel("InterfaceError",false,false,false,10,10)
         //call StartSound( error ) //apparently the bug in which you play a sound for the first time
                                    //and it doesn't work is not there anymore in patch 1.22
    endfunction

endlibrary

You don't necessarily need SimError, but it's cool. It requires JNGP.

To make it require no JNPG you can use vanilla jass version of SimError to make it GUI friendly:
JASS:
function SimError takes player ForPlayer, string msg returns nothing
    set msg="\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n|cffffcc00"+msg+"|r"
    if (GetLocalPlayer() == ForPlayer) then
        call ClearTextMessages()
        call DisplayTimedTextToPlayer( ForPlayer, 0.52, 0.96, 2.00, msg )
        call StartSound(udg_Error)
    endif
endfunction

function InitTrig_SimError takes nothing returns nothing
    set udg_Error=CreateSoundFromLabel("InterfaceError", false, false, false, 10, 10)
    //call StartSound(udg_Error)
endfunction
Where 'udg_Error is global sound parameter named: 'Error'. Paste this into Map's header (it's small map icon at the top of trigger editor).
Yeah Maker, SimError is cool :p
