There are none worth it. In my experience, none of the Inaros mods are able to compete with standard builds.

To elaborate:
• Elemental Sandstorm allows you to proc elemental status effects on enemies en-mass, but it doesn't modify the base function of the ability, which given it's rather small radius and slow movement, is almost never worth the energy drain nor the time required to use. At best, sandstorm is used to avoid a barrage of gunfire before resuming the killing.
• Negating Swarm is far better than the previous mod, but still rather useless. The most deadly status procs that might harm Inaros are Viral and Radiation, which are already extremely rare. This mod essentially turns all those slash and piercing procs from the Grineer into armor-stripping hits, which is rather counter-productive. The saving grace of this mod is that it blocks knockdowns, specially usefull against the Grineer (Scorpions and Shield Lancers) and the Infested (all Ancients).

The Negation Swarm is pretty decent, as it allows you to avoid deadly procs such as Toxin/Bleed as well as annoying debuffs (Cold, Radiation, Magnetic, etc.) and Knockdowns from Blast procs. 

And besides, losing 3% of the armor to protect you from things that could kill you is pretty good. 

Idk how it works with Wyrm's Negation (like which negation has riority over the other), but it might be even better to use them both.

 

Not sure about the Sandstorm one, but if you have a high Corrosive/Viral/Slash melee, it might be good with a high range+efficiency build. (according to the wiki, 200% Power strenght with the augment allows you to proc 100% of the time with the Sandstorm)

Sure at most of the star chart negation swarm isn't necessary but for extended survival, ESO or arbitration runs where status bleeds, toxin, radiation etc. can do massive damage it makes all the difference in the world plus you don't get knocked down as an additional bonus so that you can keep focusing on what you need to be doing instead of being killed and unable to fight back.  Pretty much a must have once off the star chart stuff.

Elemental Sandstorm sucks because Sandstorm ticks once per second which is not enough to justify a mod slot.

Negating Swam is pretty much a better Rapid Resilience for Inaros that requires upkeep.

Rapid Resilience or Negating Swarm are required for high end Grineer as their Bleed procs can and will drop you in 2 ticks. Grineer Eviscerator's are esp nasty. It's pretty much the mod used to help Inaros get around the fact he's an Armor based frame which is the least reliable kind. Negating Swarm is more elective against other factions.

Come to think of it. Inaros is 2 years old now and still doesn't have all his augments...
