A new class probably would add more value, if there was a genuinely different new class they could add: I'm not sure that there is. Warlock would be the most obvious candidate, but let's face it...a guy who can nuke moderately hard and turn invisible whenever he wants? That's called an archmage. SLAs seriously undermined the warlock niche.
What would inject tons of value into the game is more feats and spells. A couple of new serious combat feat lines ala Whirlwind Attack would massively reinvigorate the fighter class, and we'd only need about ten new spells total to make Illusion and Transmutation into viable specialty schools for arcanes... and considering that those would include Weird (mass Phantasmal Killer), Shadow Evocation (looks like the nuke it copies) and Shadow Conjuration (looks like the web, cloudkill, or whatever it copies) at least some of this could be done seriously on the cheap without compromising quality.
And if they were going to add some nice, cost-effective illusion spells, how better to showcase them than with the addition of the gnome race?
Yes to Gnomes.
Gnomes for the win... they are also winning the popular vote!
Yehediah (Dwarf Cleric), Zeddek (Human Favored Soul)
Mezros (Drow Bard), Fieris (Drow Wizard)
Freibo (Halfling Rogue)
And you're definitely right in what Illusion spells done right can be both exciting and can allow a lot of reuse of art and code.
