You've got some good ones. Since you like card games, I would add Aton, Jaipur, and Summoner Wars.

If you want 2 Players only, then Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small, which plays faster and is a good intro game to agricola.

+1's for the card games Race for the Galaxy, Battle Line and Innovation

+1 for Mr. Jack if you like thinky, puzzley games; this is a competitive gem of that kind of game.

If you want something for a change from the games you've listed, you might consider Claustrophobia as an outstanding thematic game for two players. It plays in about the same of time and has strong mechanics, but wouldn't be a "repeat" of of any games you have.

Edit: Shoot, I forgot to add one more +1 for Summoner Wars: Master Set. It is such an elegant mix of card management and tactical play. It's also a great value with plenty of replayability. Like Claustrophobia, it doesn't exactly match the kind of games you already have, but you might be surprised at the overlap in some similar decision making if you can deal with a little more theme in the recipe.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

+1 for Finca and Ticket to Ride Nordic

I'll also recommend Fairy Tale and Thurn and Taxis.
