Pseudo EDH staples

So I haven't been playing for very long but in my time I have noticed some cards that are great in just about any deck and have become staples in my decks.
A few I have really grown a liking to:
Mirage Mirror. So versatile.
Sandstone Oracle. Refill your hand and possibly more. Great little beater and blocker.
If running : Void Grafter. Throw out a body to save another for pretty cheap.
A new one: Forge of Heroes.
Your turn. I want to know what you guys deem 'staples out of the ordinary'.
The Chain Veil any time you have 4 or more walkers or a walker in the command zone I would strongly recommend this card. Admittedly it has flown out of most people's budget which makes me sad...
Crypt Ghast in any mono or deck.

I love Praetor's Grasp, it's my favorite combo killer. Stripping it right from the deck befor they get to it. Or getting the best card from their deck for your deck.
I also love Vicious Shadows this one is a really bad time for anyone with a large hand size. And remember its any creature. And then any player. So good love this one.
Homeward Path this is more of a metta call. As everyone has blue steal your stuff

Vicious Shadows is just plain disguising with prossh!!
Mirage Mirror is super sweet aswell!
Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Tower of the Magistrate and Fiery Confluence are some cards I've never seen other people run for some reason.

Black: Phyrexian Arena
Red: Blasphemous Act
Colorless: I run a copy of Sensei's Divining Top in all ten of my EDH decks

I run Conduit of Ruin in all my non-blue EDH decks. I include Sandstone Oracle and Kozilek, the Great Distortion as colorless ways to get card advantage that are tutor-able. I call this my Conduit package, and I love it, and I suggest it to anyone who is having trouble Ramping and Drawing cards. (Lookin at you )

I've been running Buried Ruin in most of my decks lately. It's fairly cheap and most decks have some good artifacts to recur.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a great card if you want to be the first to recover from a board wipe.
But I actually, apart from the colorless ramp, tend to not run "staples", so that each of my decks feels fresh and unique...

Another card I throw in every deck is Artisan of Kozilek

Rakdos Charm is probably the most underrated card in EDH. Each of its three abilities completely destroy a different archetype in commander: Graveyard decks, artifact decks, and token decks. All three of which are very popular strategies. I make sure to run a Rakdos Charm in every deck that has red and black, and I think it should be considered a staple for EDH.

Inspiring Statuary is spectacular in voltron.

Vedalken Orrery, Thought Vessel, Solemn Simulacrum, Sea Gate Wreckage, Paradox Engine, Tamiyo's Journal, Elixir of Immortality, Witchbane Orb, Seer's Sundial, Myriad Landscape, Ash Barrens, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Sensei's Divining Top go well in almost every deck
