With the addition of Copper to the game I think it would be a great opportunity to add tin.
The first obvious reason will be to create Bronze ingots which can be further crafted to make new items.
With tin you can also craft a new type of block called crying tin. Tin in real life is interesting in the fact that it can bend, and when it bends it makes a cracking noise, this noise is commonly known as the tin cry. This new block can be placed down to create noise, and will make a great counter for the new mob, the warden, who will be attracted to the noise, making it easier to avoid/capture it, whatever your preference.
Tin in real life is also rare, so rare that it shouldn't be added as an ore block which can be mined, but as a common find in the new archaeology system, whereby you can find tin ore, tin nuggets and tin ingots, within dirt and gravel.
Tin cannot be made into armour or tools, however a combination of tin and copper will make bronze which can be used to create armour/tools that will be stronger than iron, which it is in real life.
