I think you could cut Wild Instincts and Guardian of the Great Conduit as nethier are very powerful, just a thought:)

All of the planeswalker deck planeswalkers are playable if built around. I think her ultimate is solid, a lot of creatures with enter the battlefield triggers will be a good route to go. The creatures you can get the most value out of this way will probably be gearhulks. I imagine you will want to pick up a second copy of the deck to double up on her, the tutor cards and her specific creature. Guardian of the Great Conduit was in the last nissa deck and it works great. I honestly ran two copies of that one shuffled together and thinned out and took like 3rd at fnm. I revamped it and made a similar build to what others have suggested. Ramp, ramp, ramp. I will spend a little time trying to throw up a rotation proof deck the next few days, what if any color would you be willing to add?

I suggest to immediately remove the Guardian of the Great Conduit. There are way better creatures that you could use. Also, try to work more toward sinergy than trying to be a Jack-of-all-trades.

Attunes, Servants, Rhinos and Cubs are a 4x must have. I would also get away with creatures that do not help with others like the Cultivator of Blades and Terrain Elemental. Focus on the Energy theme and consider cards like Highspire Infusion.

When I saw your deck name, I was expecting something like Murphy's Green, but then you went off in a different direction. I am not sold on Guardian of the Great Conduit, which relies in a Nissa to become an average 4cmc creature. Woodland Wanderer is also a bit lost in a mono-chromatic deck. You want something that transforms Kessig Prowler  Flip without having to pay 4. I would be looking for more mana-ramp, etc.

Finally, if you are going to add a Nissa, Nissa, Vital Force works well with your Sylvan Advocate and the emblem is just great.

Thanks for the reply!

Ya wanna know why I have 3 Advocates and not 4? Because I'm still looking for a fourth! Perhaps I should of clarified that in the decklist I posted or just made the change on here anyways. I'd say you can swap a Recruiter for the fourth Advocate pretty easy.

Guardian of the Great Conduit is for everyone's best friend, the Smuggler's Copter, or in a more general sense, small U/W Fliers. I originally used Ishkanah, Grafwidow, but I felt like this deck wasn't using her to maximum ability, as delirium is not a thing my deck cares about and I rarely have black mana or spiders to make her other ability matter, it was for her 3/5 with Reach. So I considered other options, and Guardian seemed to make the most sense, a 2/4 with reach for one less mana and with ANY Nissa out gains +2/+0 and gains vigilance. Seemed like a good trade for me. That being said, I don't know if I need another answer for Smugglers and perhaps I can use these slots for another purpose.

I like Nissa, Nature's Artisan a lot. It seems like a very good card in the right deck. And this looks like the perfect deck for it!

Curious about the Guardian of the Great Conduit in the sideboard. What is he used for?

I would have to play the deck to really see, but it seems like a fourth Sylvan Advocate couldn't hurt. Give you more speed against aggro?

I like it.
