Simplest case baring bugs in package priorities:

debmirror --limit-priority=essential,standard /mirror/

If you need a more controled selection you can first mirror the
Packages file, for i in <pkg>; do grep-dctrl; done >small/Packages,
and then run debmirror on the small/Packages with the option not to
dowload Packages.
