Nissa, Vital Force
Planeswalker — Nissa
+1: Untap target land you control. Until your next turn, it becomes a 5/5 Elemental creature with haste. It's still a land.
-3: Return target permanent card from your graveyard to your hand.
-6: You get an emblem with "Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may draw a card."

Nice deck :)
I'd suggest cutting down on the pillowfort completely as you said in a previous comment. It pulls your deck in too many directions. If you're going for landfall...go big!
I'd suggest cutting out most of your mana rocks and replacing them with more green ramp spells that get you lands for landfall triggers: (eg. Kodama's Reach, Khalni Heart Expedition, Animist's Awakening, Explosive Vegetation, Nature's Lore)
For lands, I would cut the "tri lands" and the "vivid lands". They slow you down by coming into play tapped and don't add to the landfall theme. Blighted Woodlands, Ghost Town, and Thawing Glaciers are all more on theme. The "bounce" lands you have are great because they give more landfall triggers.
I would cut the cards you have under your "burn" section other than Purphoros. Again, they are not really on theme.
Hope this all helps. Check out my Kynaios and Tiro, Lovers of Landfall. It may give you some inspiration :)

Deck seems decent, but could use so changes.
You don't run alot of creature so Decimator of the Provinces doesn't make much sense. I would trade both for 2 more planeswalker.
Deathcap Cultivator is never going to have deathdoutch. Unless you use him only for the B/G. I would probably keep him for mana ramp and urgency blocks.
When you use 3+ colors, you need to keep in mind that it might be hard to cast double 1 color spells (GG or RR or BB) in mana cost are really hard to make use of.

I like the deck but i dont understand why you run Nissa, Vital Force and not Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar synergies a lot better with winding constrictor than Nissa, Vital Force, and she makes your deck faster and safer against many agro decks in the format.

Liliana Vess would be a weaker Sidisi.
Nissa, Vital Force can also untap Cradle, but has the added bonuses of turning it into a creature for easy Umbral Mantle/Staff of Domination/Sword of the Paruns combos; with an Eternal Witness effect thrown in for good measure. Not to mention ult-ing her is actually feasible. This would definitely be competitive, tier 2 or 2.5 probably, and I kinda want to make it now...
Nissa, Worldwaker isn't as good, but plays for 1 mana essentially.
Liliana of the Veil would be pretty good as a stax/discard/reanimator general.
Elspeth Tirel and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are pretty good in commander already, though a little limited by the mono-W color identity. Elspeth Tirel would have a grindy stax plan with everything that makes token copies of things as tech, while Elspeth, Sun's Champion would just be tokens.
Playing a game against Karn Liberated would literally (figuratively) make me want to kill myself. The fact that he can deal with any permanent type from the command zone is probably enough to push him into T2.5 despite being a colorless general.
I could see Kiora, Master of the Depths making it to the comp tiers based off of color identity alone. Untapping a creature and land can be pretty useful even if it's only once per turn (or not: Gaea's Cradle + Kiora's Follower + The Chain Veil = infinite loyalty, infinite mana, infinite activations of another PW, and you can ult on the last activation even though her ult sucks.)
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast could make a pretty interesting stax/value general similar to Shattergang Brothers. Having sac fodder is great in black, and destroying artifacts is pretty relevant at higher levels of play.
Tamiyo, Field Researcher has great colors, a non restrictive cost, and if you can actually build into her +1, the potential to draw a ton of cards. I could see her acting similar to Edric, Spymaster of Trest.
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is obviously OP banworthy. I mean, just look at the guy. Discard a card at random? For only 2 mana? He break the meta in half, no question.
Lastly, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker makes it to T1 just because of how much cooler he'd be than Jeleva as a placeholder for Grixis Storm.

So I'm missing Grim Flayer, Chandra, and Rishkar. Now I have Sylvan Advocates, Nissa, Vital Force, and Tireless Trackers. Would making these changes hurt the deck significantly? And which ones would hurt the most

Best solution to consistency would probably be multiple copies of Elvish Harbinger to reliably fetch your singles that you need for any given situation.
Extra card draw can't hurt either. Temple Bell, Rites of Flourishing, Howling Mine and the like will help your hand in keeping up with the mana production. Geier Reach Sanitarium lets you filter out low impact cards and extra lands once your elves reach critical mass. Elemental Bond is great if you get in enough buffs. Then there's always the dangerous Recycle, which can either win or lose you the game.
All the above should be more or less budget friendly. If you start looking for something more valuable, first thing would probably be switching your Nissa to some of the more expensive versions. Nissa, Vital Force is currently quite affordable, but the price may fluctuate wildly while it stays in standard. The original Nissa Revane is probably the most flavorful in a tribal style deck.

gandalf20, very nice. +1
I would cut all the 1x Planeswalkers to increase the numbers on some of the other best cards. Cut Chandra, Torch of Defiance for another Scrapheap Scrounger. Cut Nissa, Vital Force for another Aethersphere Harvester and cut Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for another Aethersphere Harvester or Shock or Harnessed Lightning. These cuts would help Unlicensed Disintegration, more artifacts which is a huge reason you're in Jund colors.
Cutting the Planeswalkers would decrease the price of this deck even more allowing you to add some kind of sideboard as well as bring a little more consistency. Planeswalkers are also not budget cards I wouldn't expect to see any in budget lists.
One of the reasons Chandra is in the original PT list is because she's so good with Heart. If you aren't using Heart this decreases the usefulness of her.
Good luck with your deck.
