Mirari

Every instant and sorcery you play has a built-in Reiterate if you want it. It's awfully mana-intensive, but think of doubling your burn spells! Or your card draw spells. Just imagine any instant or sorcery you play, and imagine getting another for three mana. Is it worth it?

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5

Wednesday - Mirari

A card that saw a good bit of play back when it was in Odyssey, most notably as a one-of in the venerable Wake decks. It was useful there because having enough mana to consistently play Cunning Wish and copy it would lead to some quick control (by using a copy to get back one of your removed ones), among other things. Nowadays, it doesn't see play because it needs a lot of mana to work and there isn't really a spot for it right now, not to mention it's hard to play this with 7-8 mana available so you can counter their counter or artifact kill spell. It's still a solid card, but it doesn't have a home.

This is a fun casual card, though. There's lots of fun stuff to copy.

In limited, I'd pass. If this were in Future Sight instead it'd get a higher rating, but this needs sorceries and instants to work, and you're not guaranteed to have many in your draft. I would play it in sealed if I had 6+ playable sorceries/instants that were worth copying, though.

Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 2 (draft) 3 (sealed)

Wednesday - Mirari

Now this card has a lot of potential.  The best that I can think of is abusing the card is glimpse the unthinkable.  This combination has the very high chance of taking out the majority of your opponents deck for very little mana.  I'm sure a lot of people will also use this card in combination to accumulate burn.

Constructed - 4
Limited - 2
Casual - 3

Mirari

After paying the exorbitant amount of mana it takes to cast Mirari, play an instant or sorcery spell, and copy it, you would expect to just win the game right there. Fortunately, that's generally what happens with the Mirari. It's slightly clunky for constructed, but it's hard to argue with the results of copying a Tendrils of Corruption or a hellbent Demonfire. Often it won't work quite as well in limited, but there are a few bomb spells in the Time Spiral block. If you're lucky enough to be able to copy a Mindstab or Phthisis with it, it's kind of hard to lose.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 2/5

Mirari

This card has seen some play in constructed formats and has seen competetive play. You can double up on some more expensive spells or if you have a bunch of cheap ones you can double your pleasure. I never played with this card. I never played against this card. Unfortunately, I am not your best reviewer here. Hopefully my fellow reviewers can give you some more insight.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 3

This card would mean massive amount of advantage once its out.

Demonfire now does 2x damage for 3 mana, I can play a pitch spell like
Soul Spike and copy it. I can play Compulsive Research once more for 3
mana. That's pretty nice. But is this difficult to get out?

5 mana, even in a world with various Signets, can still be pretty slow
against aggro and some of your instants or sorceries are pretty useless
in some match ups. I think to make the most of this card, you'll need
to include many instants or sorceries that have utility effects like
card drawing or damage dealing.

In casual, this is just being asked to be used. Who doesn't like
copying spells?

In limited, there are some spells worth copying. The only thing better
than removing a creature is removing 2 creature for an extra 3 mana.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5
