Mind Spring Discussion
5 days ago
I like Beast Within a lot in my defender deck, but I also run almost exclusively 0/4+ creatures.
Given your ramp is defender dependent, I'd suggest running more defenders over the spells you listed as potentially extraneous. Also, more draw card, as having a ramp almost always means you end up top-decking too quickly. And of course, more control/removal is usually good, too.
Maybe sideboard Wall of Tanglecord for reach.

Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

I like the deck, but do you think that 40 lands might be a little much? I recommend cutting a couple and adding some draw X spells so that you can refill your hand more easily, such as Mind Spring or Blue Sun's Zenith.

Some good card draw cards I would recommend would be Recurring Insight, Mind Spring and Arjun, the Shifting Flame. I have a similar deck to this, except Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is the commander, so take a look at my deck Draw Power (Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind) for some inspiration or ideas.

The first thing that I would suggest is cutting out the bounce lands. Not only do they put you a land behind, but they also put you a turn behind. That's something narset can't afford. It would be better to replace those lands with basics until you can grab the shocks.
Next, I would take out all equips and replace them with buffing enchantments like Indestructibility and Tricks of the Trade. Steel of the Godhead is also a wonderful include along with Volcanic Strength.
Replace manalith with Darksteel Ingot. Ideally, you don't want 3drop mana rocks, but darksteel is better than manalith until you can grab moxes.
I would replace the creatures with either stax pieces or spells that make tokens, just so you don't fizzle on a narset attack. Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Ghostly Prison, Smoke, Raise the Alarm, Talrand's Invocation. The last two aren't great, but they all provide a small amount of protection against attackers. Replace Minds Aglow with Mind Spring for a better effect.
Most of these suggestions are budget friendly, mildly competitive and will get you set in the right direction for less than $100 (with shocks added to the price)

My friend built a deck like this but it was more hydra based my recommendations would be to throw in 3-4 Primordial Hydra
drop the temple bell and add Mind Spring
Sands of Delirium for more mill and combo off the ramp
drop creeping corrosion for Disallow
drop ambassador for a couple Fog Bank keep the fight out of the air
and if you can run a couple Kalonian Hydra
other wise thats all i got good luck with the deck

Hey there! Cool deck idea! Just a few tips:
- Brainstorm, Prosperity, and Counterspell are unfortunately not legal in Modern. If you want similar effects, I would consider Serum Visions, Blue Sun's Zenith or Mind Spring, and Remand for those slots.
- Relic of Progenitus is normally considered a better card in the sideboard than Tormod's Crypt, as drawing a card can be very useful.
- 3 Negate and 3 Spell Pierce seems to be a little bit too many. Maybe go down to 2 of each and add in 2 Echoing Truth?
In any case, cool deck! Good luck with it!
