So has baral been worth it? It seems "fine" but do you want to be tapping out on 2 over holding up a counter or removal?
Not being able to really play cast out because of crush is a real bummer. In place of it, commit//memory I think should be in the main to help with Planeswalkers and other annoying permanents.
Some amount of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar should be in the board to help against midrange and some aggro decks.
I've been looking for a way to play crush of tentacles and as foretold. Pretty good start so far.

That's good to hear. Yeah I do like Arlinn Kord Flip but I think Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is better in most situations. Although, having Vigilance/Haste on a stick is quite nice. Speaking of Gideon, I cut the Vizier's because he didn't affect the board as much as I wanted him to, even if he comes down on turn 3. I'll still toy around with him but I decided to just jam in 4 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for now - Also replacing the Gideon of the Trials I had in the deck.
The problem before is that the deck didn't really do anything "unfair". I play a bunch of on-curve creatures and play normal magic. While that's fine, I don't win as much as I would want and I get destroyed by control and sometimes aggro. The hot midrange decks in standard are Mardu Vehicles and Marvel decks. Mardu plays Exemplar into, heart of kiran, into unlicensed disintegration, into Gideon, into Avacyn. All of those cards are ridiculous by themselves but all of them together? Pretty unfair. As for Marvel, well I play Marvel as my main deck. Turn 4 Ulamog is relatively consistent. Making it, you guessed it, unfair.
That's where I need to get this list. To that unfair level. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar helps that a bit but it still needs more to sure up some of the decks shortcomings. Samut, Voice of Dissent has been okay at best. I think Archangel Avacyn Flip might be better here. Also, I bumped a land. 25 is probably the correct number. Might just cut a Tracker and add another plains.
As always, I'm open to suggestions so let me know. Thanks.
