I think with the nether update there are some nether related enchantments they could add. This is one idea, since there's a really small time window to click your sword to rebound a ghast fireball, maybe they could add an possible sword enchantment that makes it easier to deflect fireballs, by increasing the reaction time window. Right now it's basically impossible to consistently rebound ghast fireballs and I normally revert to my bow, but it's hard to build a base in the soul sand valley if you can't use blocks with a low blast resistance cause Ghast fireballs will destroy them during construction. So maybe with each enchanting level it adds .25 seconds to the reaction window, or whatever you guys find fitting. With the max level, the idea is that you could deflect the fireballs without really thinking about it.
If you don't want to make the soul sands valley biome too easy though, maybe the only way to get this enchantment would be by finding something in the soul sands valley, like a new mineral that you would use in the enchanting table instead of lapiz to enchant a sword. That way you'd have to explore the soul sand valley without it first. There's a good thread on Soul Rubies that has a possibility for this, check it out.
