Just a bit of theorycrafting here, as I hadn't seen any mutation mind builds. The idea here is to leverage the Strength boost and mutations from the mutation mind archetype, plus the spell-choosing power of the rebirth discipline, to make this d6 1/2 BAB caster into a melee force to be reckoned with.
Half-Orc Psychic (mutation mind, rebirth discipline)
Traits: Fate's Favored, Armor Expert
Alt. Racial Traits: Toothy
3: Extra Phrenic Amplification: Enlarged Torso (+2 AC), Claws
4: +1 Str
5: Power Attack
7: ???, Rubbery (DR 2/-)
8: +1 Int
11: Enlarged Body, EPA: Recuperation (fast healing 5)
I'm still iffy on a couple of the feats, but the basic framework is there. It doesn't really come online until level 4 (although 17 Strength and a greataxe solves most problems at low levels). At level 4, you can use the rebirth discipline to add divine favor to your spell list and spells known, which gives +2 to attack and damage with Fate's Favored. Between that and the mutation bonus, you'll be attacking with a claw/claw/bite at +10 for 1d4+8 each.
Since you're a psychic caster, Armor Expert lets you wear a mithral breastplate at no penalty, so AC should be decent. The downside is that the mutation gives an enhancement bonus, so it won't stack with a belt. However, that at least frees up the cash for an amulet of mighty fists, and the item slot for a Con and/or Dex belt.
Any suggestions on the remaining feats, or further tweaks?
