    No, that's impossible, because you have the order of those steps wrong. The Beginning Phase consists of these 3 steps, in this exact order:

    - Untap Step
    - Upkeep Step
    - Draw Step

    As such, it is absolutely not possible to cast a spell after drawing a card but before the upkeep step, because such a timeframe doesn't exist. The earliest time you can cast a spell during your turn is the upkeep step, after it has started (remember, no player receives priority during the untap step) So, if you have a creature with a triggered ability that goes off "at the beginning of your upkeep step," the latest you can cast the creature to get that trigger is at the end step of your opponent's turn.
