Eternal Witness , Green Sun's Zenith , and Chord of Calling definitely have a place here (and ignore those that say E-Wit is overrated: your commander gives you the necessary reanimation outlet to bring it back, and your deck should be well tuned to sacrifice it for value). I'd also strongly recommend Reclamation Sage for similar reasons: mana rocks and enchantments are really good in this format.
Board wipes would be nice here. It's not like you don't have reanimation.
Bojuka Bog also belongs here.
Things that don't spark joy:
- Dark Ritual : you're not a fast combo deck. It doesn't really belong.
- The Eldest Reborn : Any normal Edict is probably better, you've got a great reanimation package already, and there are better ways of forcing discard. It's kind of win-more.
- Golgari Findbroker : E-Wit is strictly better.
- Wall of Blossoms : There are better card draw permanents in Green.

You may want to consider Angelic Renewal in this deck. The way it works with Evoke, you pay the Evoke cost, and by sacrificing Renewal, you get to keep the creature, as well as the ETB when returns to the battlefield. I've run the interaction in Pauper decks, and it's hilarious to do things like turn-2 Renewal, turn-3 Mulldrifter to draw 4 and get a 2/2 flier. You can do similar things by exiling the creature before it's sacrificed with Parallax Wave , Deadeye Navigator , Roon of the Hidden Realm , and Endless Sands . If you like that plan, I would include AEthersnipe and Walker of the Grove , too.
I'm also a little confused as to why you're not running Scapeshift in a Gates deck, especially one full of Landfall creatures. Other good land-fetch cards include Skyshroud Claim , Hunting Wilds , Ranger's Path , Wood Elves , Krosan Verge , Nature's Lore , and Karametra, God of Harvests , all of which fetch your Shocklands.
Path of Ancestry is fantastic in tribal decks, and it is an absolute staple in 5-color tribal decks.
The final thing I would do is include some looting effects and self mill that won't put your Gates in the yard, since your commander wants expensive Elementals to reanimate. Kiora, Master of the Depths and Mulch could be good on the mill side, and Faithless Looting , Frantic Search , Greater Good (You can sac Evoked elementals in response to the trigger! Value!), Sultai Charm , and Chart a Course are all good for looting. Also, Surveil can help to fill the yard, as well. Try Notion Rain and Price of Fame (Good for killing Commanders!).
As for cuts, I would lose Brighthearth Banneret (land ramp is just better most of the time), Fertilid (7-mana Explosive Vegetation is bad, even if it has recursion), Rubblehulk (no ability, so it'll just get chumped for days. Run Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar if you want the land-count effect), and Tyrant of Discord (too expensive for a random effect).

The reason why you're having mana problems is that you are only running 33 lands. And, yes, I mean 33, not 34. Temple of the False God is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. God, I hate that card. In a 99 card deck, that's the equivalent of running 20 lands in a 60 card deck. Add in 4 more lands minimum, or at least 3 if you swap out Temple for a basic. Run Mulch , Satyr Wayfinder , and Grisly Salvage . Swap Sign in Blood for Night's Whisper , since it's easier on the mana when you need to hit your land drops.
I think you should go with the reanimator plan, since it's the most straightforward upgrade to what you have here. You can cut the cards that don't play into that plan for the land stuff I mentioned above. Also, a good way to think of your deck is in packages of 9 cards. In a 99 card deck, you're 70% likely to hit one of 9 cards in your first 4 turns, which is when a casual EDH deck wants to be done with setup and get to its game plan. With the exceptions of silver bullets and "eat your vegetables" cards (removal, draw, or ramp), try to fit your cards into those packages so that you have a coherent game plan you'll reliably have the cards to execute.
If you want to know where to stick your money, pick up a copies of Breeding Pool and Overgrown Tomb . They're not going to get cheaper than they are now, and they'll go in every deck you build from here out. If you do, they your fixing in green becomes much better, since you can run Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , Hunting Wilds , and Ranger's Path . Even without that, you should run Farseek .
As for EDHREC, it really is a good place to get help, although you'll probably want to specifically visit the pages for your commander and the graveyard theme page. I've linked a Scryfall search for lands available in your colors from most to least popular here, as well. Good Luck!

When I was playing Jarad, I used to jam as many Mulches, Commune with the Gods, Seek the Wilds and Satyr Wayfinders as possible. Then used things with / power like Lord of Extinction, Sewer Nemesis, Splinterfright, Apocalypse Demon, etc. to throw at your opponents face.
Also, Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a nice way to reccur the sacrificed creatures turn after turn.
