I haven't played on the PTR, but from the looks of it, blizzard snare is going to be more effective in 1.0.5 (they are reducing the penalty to movespeed reduction from 40% to 25% in Inferno). That means blizzard will snare for 45% movespeed reduction instead of the current 36% in Inferno.
The other changes I will consider are:
-possibly ditch prismatic armor in favor of either ice armor - crystallize or energy armor - force armor. the nerf to prismatic armor will indeed force us to look at other options. storm armor may be a strong choice for well-geared wizards such as my softcore wiz.
-with buffs to snares and CC durations, we may be looking at a return to venom hydra, especially for lower DPS wizards who need that DPS boost.
If you went with a defensive build and high defense gear, do ditch illusionist in favor of galvanizing ward. That is what I've done on my hardcore wizard.

Anyone try storm armor - shocking aspect with this build? Seems like a good combo, but I dunno how badly the "Critical Hits have a chance" part hurts it.
I'm loving using scramble now that force armor was nerfed. With reflect damage packs you have a constant 25% movement speed!
