I want to learn some new ones that'll improve my micro play.

I already know Q,W,E,R,D,F
I know alt+skill shortcut for self cast
I know ctrl+skill shortcut for level up

Any other good ones? What about intelligent key bindings?

Keybindings is a good point to cover. The most common is turning your qwer into "smart cast" The reasoning behind this is that you abilities will come out quicker, resulting in seemingly faster reaction time.

This is not good for all champions. Especially if you don't have a good understanding of range and AOE of his or her abilities.

Q,W,R,T - Skills
E,S,D,F - Camera
A, G, H - Attack, Summoner 1, Summoner 2
Space - Center Camera
1,2,3 / Modifier Key 1,2,3 - Items
Alt - Self Cast
Shift - Smart Cast

It takes some getting used to, but unless you have a disability of some sort, there's no reason to use any other keyboard configuration.

Ive thought about this at various times, but never bothered changing anything and I was just thinking...

Q/W/E/R: abilities
Shift + Q/W/E/R: smartcast abilities
D/F: Summoner spells
X/C: ping/retreat, either way
S: either recall or opening the shop

Thoughts? This way, the middle three fingers only need to stay on Q/W/E and your fingers can easily move to any needed buttons.
