Behind the Scenes contains white :/ and given that most of your creatures have defender I'm not sure skulk would help that much.

Sword of Body and Mind is strong but again you need attacking bodies. I had tried a mill deck and was running Dimir Doppelganger, Invisible Stalker, Jace's Phantasm, Latch Seeker, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Nighthowler for the sword... Jace Beleren was in there too, not using any of these at the moment.

Millstone Sanguine Bond and Stinging Barrier seem a bit underpowered here, as well as others I am less certain about. Besides Doorkeeper, there is less appeal to cards saying "defender" than creatures with fat behinds like Pontiff of Blight.

Maybe it would be fun to get some more counterspells, Mind Sculpt and Paranoid Delusions under an Isochron Scepter instead?

I just typed a really long comment talking about all the possible things that could be added to this deck and changes that could be made (like replacing Wall of Wood with Wall of Vines) but then I crashed and now the comment is gone. Rather than retype the comment and explain the combos, I think I'll just say the cards and allow you to see what I mean. I realize not all of these cards will work perfectly, but they could lead to some fun things. I really enjoy the deck you've created. Blaze of Glory, Fog Bank, Nature's Blessing, Order of the Stars, Perimeter Captain, Pride Guardian, Sprouting Phytohydra, Stinging Barrier, Wall of Glare, Wall of Kelp, Wall of Reverence, Wall of Shields, Wall of Vapor
