if you could add one more card and swap it out of the power nine, what would it be?

Auto card is your friend. Lightning bolt. -->. [ c] lightning bolt [ / c]. --> lightning bolt or replace c with deck and lightning bolt with your decklist.

time vault is basically the only other card in the game that fulfils all the actual requirements of being in the power 9

This definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.
I was referring to the painting The Treachery of Images.
I know.

incase you are wondering, no unhinged or unglued cards allowed.

Time Vault and Sol Ring are perfectly legit to be P9. Both are stronger than Twister, after all.

Wasn't Library of Alexandria the actual 10th power 9?
It's not clear to me that "Power Nine" is even a meaningful label.

The Power Nine are rare cards that were printed in A/B/U but then dropped in Revised, never getting printed again.  However, there are several other cards that also meet these criteria, including Chaos Orb, Natural Selection, and Raging River.  What sets the Power Nine apart from the other cards is supposedly the power level, but they aren't the nine most powerful cards in the game, or anything like that.  Sol Ring is quite comparable to the Moxen, but it was reprinted, so that disqualifies it.
Ignoring when they were printed, I'd put in Skullclamp and Balance.

The disqualification is important. That's why Yawgmoth's Will, Skullclamp, Balance, and Channel, all broken as hell, don't make the list.

This. 

I think Timetwister has started to fade in power lately. I think Time Vault is a pretty close second. Another good one no one mentioned is Bazaar of Baghdad

But I remember hearing when I started that if there was a power 10 Library of Alexandria was the 10th card.

This. Library of Victory is fairly universally acknowledged as #10 (and I believe is not included in such discussions solely on the basis that it's never been in a core set like the Power 9).
