New Jace planeswalker

In the photo shown by Wizards of the Coast, we can see that Jace is standing in front of who looks like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind (as pointed out in a comment by Denis Armellini). Could a fourth Jace be printed or might Niv-Mizzet become a planeswalker?

The original Ravnica block is known as one of Magic's most popular sealed and draft environments. It featured a large emphasis on multicolored spells, with both allied and enemy factions known as guilds. It also featured the ten "shock lands", such as Temple Garden, that helped make multicolored deck builder's dreams come true.

The official hashtag for Return to Ravnica will be #MTGRTR.

The panel was also host to a slew of Avacyn Restored spoilers, including Demonlord of Ashmouth, Restoration Angel, and more.

Two new mechanics were revealed: "soulbound" and "miracle."

What new secrets will Return to Ravnica hold for Magic: the Gathering players? Will the ten shock lands be reprinted in Return to Ravnica? We'll find out this October.
