This with either another copy of itself or with Runic Repetition allows you to juggle spells for as long as your mana will reach. I NEED TO BREAK THIS.

Hey Call to Mind, do you mind if I totally replace you? K, thanks.

Runic Repitition, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Arcane Melee and this. Congratulations, you now have 1BlueBlueRed: make three 2/2 drakes with flying and return target instant or sorcery to your hand. Proceed to go, collect $200, and repeat as long as you have mana.

Add in Secrets of the Dead and Burning Vengeance, and you have that PLUS draw a card and a shock.

However, you simply CAN'T do it at instant speed, since that would be broken

I was positive they'd make this card (although I was expecting it to grant flashback, that runs too much into Snapcaster Mage's territory). Problem is, I thought they'd make it cost 1 less on each cast, or make it an instant. If they'd have done either of those things, it could have gone a long ways towards encouraging the blue self-mill style of play. Snapcaster sort of does that. Problem is, if he's in your yard and not your hand, he can't help you. With this, you want to mill it away so you can take your pick of whatever juicy spells you may want.

But unfortunately it's expensive and clunky, meaning it probably won't see play.

Well, aside from Faithless Looting this is the only toy they gave UR Delver, and it kind of sucks. Ugh.

...can it return itself to your hand? And will it then exile itself if you can? If not, then I guess with Secrets Of The Dead you have a "2R: Draw a card". Huh.

Too bad it can't get Enchantments too.

Makes your Removal go much further in limited and thus is a notbad card. My opponent scooped before lethal when i used the same brimstone 3 times over 4 turns.

The (incredibly) poor man/woman's Snapcaster Mage.

I found the weirdest use for this recently - ran it in a Red/Black Madness deck. Nothing like pitching it to give a Trespasser il-Vec shadow and then using the flashback to bring back a Dark Withering for removal or Call to the Netherworld to get a creature. In that respect it can provide some remarkable utility.
