What options do I have left to save SSD space?
I have a 2012 128 GB SSD Air with 67.5 GB left.
I just installed Left 4 Dead 2 for Steam and it took nearly 15 GB of space
I have gone through a few tips to save space such as removing apps I don't need/use, languages I don't need, and made it so the mail client doesn't store stuff locally. Is there anything else I can do?
The only thing I think I can move off my SSD would be my music which is about 15 GB. I don't store movies or any other media on my SSD and documents+apps don't take up that much space. Would playing music from an SD card or USB 3.0 through iTunes result in any sluggishness? That may be my only option eventually.

The rising People, hot and out of breath,
Roared round the palace: "Liberty or death!"
"If death will do," the King said, "let me reign;
You'll have, I'm sure, no reason to complain."

Your disk is more than half empty--I'm not sure I would worry about freeing up more space unless you need it, and right now you don't need it.
That said, the SD card is a great storage option for the MBA (assuming you have the 13" version). I have a 128GB and a 64 GB SD card for my 128GB MBA. That's where I keep large files that I only use occasionally, such as movies, old finanical files, etc.
It sounds like you already clean up your HD from time to time, and that is a GREAT habit to get into, IMO.
