(Kaldheim) Mystic Reflection uses

This card seems pretty wild, being kind of a preemptive (and non-Disenchantable) Metamorphic Alteration. If you foretell it on one turn, it only takes one measly mana to use it in response to something on another turn. What kind of tricks can you think of using it for?
Most obviously, use spells/abilities that bring in a lot of creatures in one go so that they all enter as a copy of something strong. One awkward thing here though is that an opponent could ursurp the reflection by getting in something of their own at instant speed. -inclusive commanders I can think of that qualify are Oona, Queen of the Fae and Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant, plus Tana, the Bloodsower & Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel with an appropriate partner. (Note that e.g. The Locust God is AFAIK underwhelming here since its triggers are separate; you'll only get a copy out of the first token.)
Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer could use it as an inexpensive (if somewhat risky) way of getting a token copy of something that his other tokens can then copy in turn.
Kind of narrow, but you could get extra value by having creatures with on-cast triggers like Mockery of Nature come in as a copy of something with an ETB trigger, getting you both triggers at the end of the day. (You could also do something like having a creature cast from your hand come into as a copy of a Dread Cacodemon to qualify for its ETB, but you could do the same with any creature card Clone variant.)

Xyris kind of likes that card. Gives me a bunch of whatever is on the table when I wheel instead of snakes

Brago targets so aim this at him in order to make all his fellow creatures die to the legend rule

@ Pikobyte : would that really work? Or do the Xyris trigger go on the stack on by one so you would only get your first snake as a copy of something and the rest is still snakes?

@mindfreak314 sadly it’s 1 by 1. Thought you get 7 at first but the way Xyris is worded makes you get tokens 1 by 1. The wording would have to be „whenever a player draws 1 or more cards, create that many snakes“ to give you 7

plakjekaas: I dunno what you're trying to say; I've never mentioned making copies out of legends (hence the Phage comment)
