Zachary,

Personally, I'd add some warming to that set: 81A, 81C and 81EF. An ND 0.3 and 0.6 would allow for more precise control of the aperture. Also, a polarizer is great for controling reflections and enhancing skies, and a clear optical flat or UV for lens protection when needed. CC Magenta and CC Green in various strengths allow fine-tuning of color if you work with a color meter. Diffusion would be worth looking into after adding these basics. You can do a search of this site on the topic of diffusion.

If you plan on shooting B&W, a Yellow 12 and Red 25 are nice as well.
