Well there are three things I Could add to that list based off my
introductory mixing classes:

An expander (That can double as a noise gate, but a true expander is more
useful because of flexibility in my opinion)
A Chorus
Multiband Compressor.

These combined with the tools above provide most of the introductory mixing
I teach in my first semester, so I would put forth these could be included
for a 'basic introductory set'

Obviously each will have their opinion, just thinking of what gets used by
my introductory students the most.  Expander/Noise Gate is a very useful
tool in general, not only for thingsl ike drums, but also noisy guitar
amps, etc.  Yes I do teach how to edit the 'silence' but I am also teaching
how to use the tools.  The chorus more for building a stereo image, and the
