Daretti, Scrap Savant and Trash for Treasure seem good in this list.

Blinkmoth Well turns off Static Orb and Winter Orb during an opponent's end step, letting you untap normally.

What are your thoughts on Storage Matrix?

If you're running MLD, then Decree of Annihilation is worth considering. It's a bit more expensive than other MLD spells, but it's much harder to counter the cycling trigger.

If you're looking for more sweepers, Blasphemous Act is hard to beat for efficiency in most multiplayer games.

Staff of Domination isn't particularly mana-efficient, but it's extremely versatile, and combines with cards like Clock of Omens, Goblin Welder, and Metalworker to produce some interesting effects.

Everflowing Chalice is a mana rock I like in artifact-heavy decks, because it can come down on turn 2 to accelerate out a 4-cost commander, or it can come down on turn 6+ to act as a more expensive Thran Dynamo.

Sol Ring is banned in Noble.

I'm not convinced Tibalt is the card you want for this deck, but I'd need to do some testing to be certain. I am suspicious that building around Pia's Revolution would be better, though.

Puppet Strings, Staff of Domination, and Magewright's Stone are absurd with Krenko. Thornbite Staff might also be ridiculous, but I'm not certain.

Entrei Because it's moronic to play CARD A for the sole reason that it is good with CARD B (when CARD A is terrible without CARD B), unless you have enough copies of cards that can substitute for CARD B. If you play Ivorytusk Fortress because it works with Cryptolith Rite, but no other cards that either have or grant tap abilities, you're going to end up with your elephant doing nothing most games. However, if you play Ivorytusk Fortress with Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Earthcraft, Glare of Subdual, Cryptolith Rites, Diversionary Tactics, Nullmage Shepherd, Symbiotic Deployment, Field Surgeon, Selesnya Evangel, and Sandsower, your elephant is probably going to be useful in most games where you draw it.

Note: I don't recommend playing some of those cards. Sandsower seems terrible without an absurd number of creatures, at which point you should be playing Collective Blessing instead.

Cryptolith Rite is awesome.

Ivorytusk Fortress just gives your creatures vigilance unless you have some way to take advantage of tapping your creatures during other players' turns (Cryptolith Rite counts, as do Glare of Subdual and Earthcraft). Without either a critical mass of tap-abusing cards or tutors to fetch them, Ivorytusk Fortress isn't much better than Spectral Gateguards. For the record, last time I computed critical mass for EDH, it ended up being around 10-12 cards (depending on how many cards a given deck tended to draw over the course of a game).
