At this point none does. But in the future I think Ubuntu will because they are the one developing it. It will be a Ubuntu thing including their Ubuntu touch version.
Not Xubuntu, nor Lubuntu, nor Kubuntu, Just Ubuntu.

Wow, I thought it was already out because I always hear talk about it. I guess I have to wait then.

Mir may, or may not ship with Ubuntu 14.04:
Ubuntu 14.04 will be a long term support (LTS) release, so it remains to be seen if the Ubuntu developers will make the change to Mir with a LTS release of Ubuntu:
... it will be very interesting to see how the situation plays out for Ubuntu 14.04 since it's a Long-Term Support release. Modern Ubuntu LTS releases are maintained on the desktop for a period of five years so generally Canonical is conservative with pushing major user-facing changes into these versions.
But you will probably (maybe) have Mir with Ubuntu 14.10!

Mir is aimed to be the default in Ubuntu 14.10, 14.04 will have Xorg by default. AFAIK, no other distro announced going for Mir.
