A new for shovels - Propulsion
so essentially with Jeb incentivizing every tool in the game to be a weapon, I think the shovel should be given a use, one that could make a revolutionary, albeit silly change to how we see combat today: Shovel bouncing, or "Propulsion"
so this very mechanic would have to do with how you attack in the air with a shovel. when your attack bar reaches %200, the shovel should be able to "bounce", in which the player holds the shovel downward and uses it to bounce upward (say, 1.5 blocks per bounce, and higher If you were high up) on entities or break certain blocks (Dirt, Gravel, perhaps even cobblestone if using a Iron, diamond, or netherite shovel). this very attack would only do as much damage as their unenchanted variant, but will do 2+ damage when falling every 2 blocks).
By adding this mechanic, players could use the self-knockback to propel themselves in the air, perhaps even adding easier ways to activate an elytra (If you can time it right) or even be used in PVP, In which you could bounce from a high place by hitting one player, then use that propulsion to land by another player, surprising them.
