Not to discourage you, but most WV cases aren't worth it as it's faster to insert and do OCLL (OLL with EO solved). This is because for your last slot you're either doing solve pair->OCLL->PLL or pair up pair->WV->PLL. They're the same number of looks, and often the best WV is to just insert then do the OCLL. What is worth being able to do though is predicting the OCLL while you insert the pair.

The worthwhile WVs are these:
R U' R' (insert)
R U R' U' R U' R' (sexy insert)
R U R' U' R U R' U' R U' R' (double sexy insert)
L' U R U' R' L (L' insert)
R U2 R'
R U' R' U R U2 R' (inverse sexy U R U2 R')
R U' R' U R U' R' U R U2 R' (double inverse sexy U R U2 R')

There's also the WVCP for the 0 corners orientated case which are worth it. I have videos on both of these here.

Hope this helps!
