Much like yesterday's Card of the Day, Mirrorpool suggests access to very specific effects for colors that generally don't get them (or at least not often). It will be especially spectacular in decks that can recur lands, but almost every deck plays at least some instants and sorceries, and few decks will balk at having another copy of their best creature. I find it slightly unfortunate that you can't use it to copy an opposing counterspell or burn spell and turn it on the caster; still, even as written, it offers some insane (in the positive Stephen Menendian-style use) plays. Copying an Acquire or Bribery is probably something close to the Magic equivalent of Brock Lesnar's F5, and targeting Warp World or Scrambleverse would no doubt cause a lot of people to scoop on the spot!
