I also play Jund and after months of testing, at least in the meta in my area, you are running too few cost effective removal spells in your main board even with Chandra, the Firebrand to fork them - if you dont farseek to her on turn 3 you'll be overwhelmed. With 11 creatures +2 keyrunes there's a decent chance you wont even end up with a creature in your starting hand if you're on the play - consequently any solid aggro is going to win the first game for free unless you happen to topdeck perfectly and they have no answers of their own (unlikely).
Things that present a weakness to this deck currently also include hexproof, such as Geist of Saint Traft , and anything in the air. Went 3-2 with my deck at my last FNM deck:okay-its-jund and I also had too few removal spells in my main deck (also I have Arbor Elf for when Stomping Ground rotates in). The matches I lost were to aggro where I auto-lost the first game due to just not having enough to deal with the constant threats. With no boardwipes, I fear you'll have the same results. Cards to Consider are Bonfire of the Damned if you have them, otherwise Mizzium Mortars is an acceptable substitute, and Vampire Nighthawk has a sound place in Jund.
That said, I've been wanting to try out Chandra to turn 4 card:Rakdos's Return for 6, as it will probably be a scoop for the opponent at that point.

You raise very valid points. However, my meta has virtually no aggro decks, and so I am not very afraid of them. Bonfire of the Damned is simply out. I've had Sever the Bloodline and Mizzium Mortars in here, but they felt too slow and sluggish. I've considered Blasphemous Act since it's easier to cast when you need it the most.Adding Chandra, the Firebrand was just meant for testing, but I've really grown to like her. I might be modifying the deck to take advantage of her ability to copy stuff. Come Gatecrash, I'll be adding Arbor Elf s and Stomping Ground as well.
Chandra, the Firebrand copying card:Rakdos's Return is sweet. I hit an enemy for 12 with it that way. :)

Ah, yeah if you dont have to deal with a lot of aggro then maybe you don't need so much removal, but I thought one of your problem decks was Naya so I brought it up. One thing about mizzium mortars, I very rarely overload it, except when I absolutely need a board wipe. It's good for cleaning up a flipped huntmaster, olivia and the like. Given the choice, I'd be running bonfires instead but I strongly dislike the christmas miracle mechanic (and I dont have any).
From the look of your sideboard, it seems like jund zombies isn't a thing you have to deal with either cause I see no graveyard removal, no pillar of flame and no deathrite shaman or anything. That said, if your meta has few aggro decks to speak of, do you think lilliana really belongs in the mainboard? It seems like you could side her out and a few other things for some Strangleroot Geist , wolfir silverhearts, dreg manglers, or vampire nighthawks, the nighthawk synergizing extremely well with kessig. If no one is playing aggro or zombies, you could probably have a few free wins by filling out your early to low mid range with aggressive cards to use up their removal or first board wipe, rakdos's return their second board wipe from their hand and rebuild with thragtusks. Also, what IS your meta currently running? cause it's not zombies and its not aggro, so if its all control doesnt that warrant pressuring them hard to win before their board wipes take over? Just my two copper.

The metagame is a mix of G/W aggro, naya midrange decks, Bant Miracles and U/W control. There's only one Zombies-player at the shop, and he's running B/G.
Liliana of the Veil is great against slow decks. Make them sacrifice their one, lonely creature or keep their hand dry. Ultimate'ing her will probably be a game win. If I'll cut something to add creatures, it's probably her.. And if I do, I'll add Vampire Nighthawk .
I'll think about adding Mizzium Mortars , at least for the sideboard. The overload cost is a bit tough to pay, but it's great spot removal.

Have you ever considered Barter in Blood for jund?

I did, but I found it to be very clunky and generally hurting me as much (or more) than my opponent. It was often a dead draw..

I'm building a jund deck similar to this, but I have trouble with the right lands to use. If you could help, that would be great. And You Thought You Could Win.
