Vedalken Orrery I think deserves a space. that card is extremely good and goes in any deck (giving benefit to every deck)

Here are some other suggestions I can think of off of the top of my head:

Sensei's Divining Top, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Path to Exile, Oblation, Survival of the Fittest, Moltensteel Dragon, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Golgari Grave-Troll, Erebos, God of the Dead, Sneak Attack, Voltaic Key, Wurmcoil Engine, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Exsanguinate, Thundermaw Hellkite, Pithing Needle, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, and Spirit of the Labyrinth

I would consider these cards to all be staples, as I've seen them in multiple decks consistently. You could honestly increase it to 200 cards. Another cool thing would be to do one for 99 lands, as I think that would be interesting.

You mentioned a Deadeye Navigator combo with Pestermite several times in the description - that's not a combo. I think you mean Palinchron.

The pesermite combo is Deadeye Navigator + Pestermite + any land that can produce three mana, a nykthos that has 5 devoting, or a Gilded Lotus are all infinite abilities with deadeye mite in addition pestermite dead eye can lock down a board or be used in additional combos like tap deal 1,or Temple Bell combo. Palichron works as well but pestermite is a bit more versitile.
