If Shaco has Oracle's Elixir, only the real one will have the eye over it.
If Shaco has any jungle buff (red, blue, or baron), only the real one will have that.

If he's ulted as a way to escape, typically the one running will be real while the one staying and fighting will be fake.

Why the hell did people downvote this guy? Those are all good tips.

Good tips all around. I'll just add something I occasionally use to figure out which one is real. Shaco's clone recieves increased damage, compared to the real Shaco the bonus damage is generally very significant.
If my champion has an AoE ability in their kit (or just something spammable), hitting both Shacos at the same time and seeing which one takes more damage is a good way to figure out which one is fake. The pinging trick is also a stupidly effective way to figure out which Shaco is real...

Like Pogo mentioned, any buff will appear on the real Shaco, and not the fake, this is also true for vitually any on-hit effect including Sheen or Lichbane, as well as certain supportive steroid abilities like Blood Boil or Hunters Call.

If you have exhaust or ignite and can get it off before he clones that debuff is only on one of them

<_< target one, if it has items then it's real. No items = fake.

Or did they change that? I seem to remember it still working recently.

Several ways:

If he has sigil buffs or baron buff, it's the real one.
If he has Sheen, Lich Bane, Ghostblade proc, or any other item like that, it's the real one.
Click on him, if he has items, it's the real one.
Ping him before the fight starts, this will put a crosshair over him, and if he uses his ultimate, it'll still be there on the real one after.
