There's some pretty good cards...I'd say it's better than avverage for a core set...some quick thoughts:

All the planeswalkers are just about busted in Limited, New jace won't be completely busted until the fall block, then watch out...

White:

Angelic Destiny is the best creature enchantment in quite a while and will see some play...can't wait to slap in on a Sun Tiatan :P
Archon of Justice is a sweet reprint...exileing things is fun.
Grand Abolisher looks to be a sweet sideboard card for the control mirror.
Oblivion Ring being reprinted is what will make UW control better than UB control.
Personal Sanctuary + the reprinted Manabarbs?  WR control could be a thing....
Timely Reinforcements would have been awesome if it was an instant.

Blue:

Jace's Archivist...this card will be completly busted at some point in the next 15 months, count on it.
Lord of the Unreal...one of the best tribal lords ever...Illusion Tribal may actually be a thing...
Master Thief...come here Mr. Blightsteel Colossus...
Mind Unbound...will be a sick one of in a lot of control decks
Phantasmal Image...Best. Clone. Ever.
Sphinx of Uthuun...Venser deck being reassembled :P
Visions of Beyond...Makes the new Jace not awful, almost makes Mill a viable strategy.

Black:

Bloodlord of Vasgoth...Vampires aren't going away for a while, 6/6 flyers for 5 mana are pretty good.
Rune Scarred Demon...hmmm...can I add black to that Venser deck somehow?...

Red:

Goblin Grenade:  BOOOOOM!  Kuldotha Red is a deck again.
Grim Lavamancer...won't be as good as you think...still the best pinger ever, but without a never ending supply of fetchlands, wastelands, and brainstorms to remove from your graveyard it won't dominate the way it does in legacy.

Green:

Arachnus Spinner/Arachnus Web...going to be some sick in limited.
Hunter's Insight...basically a better Harmonize, also basically a better draw spell than blue currently has.
Primordial Hydra...seems really good.

Artifacts:

Adaptive Automaton...Ya...that's a good guy right there...finally a lord for my Quest for Ula's Temple deck...seriously though, this guy is really good and will see a lot of play.
Quicksilver Amulet will do some really broken crap.
Swiftfoot Boots...As close to a reprint of Lightning Greaves as they're ever going to do.
