Very interesting running so few creatures. I like it though. +1 from me.
Have you considered any of the following:
Glen Elendra Archmage - A faerie and re-usable counter magic all in one
Marchesa's Decree - You are a pillow fort deck making the Monarch mechanic very strong. This can also be used politically by letting an opponent through and then letting everyone else fight over the monarchy.
Skullclamp - The best card in any deck playing tokens.
Notorious Throng - Makes faeries and can give you an extra turn
Archetype of Imagination - Turns off your opponents flyers and also counts as an enchantment.
Happy deck building!

What about Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ? Granting Undying seems like a good way to get more mileage out of the big sac targets.

Correct, you will always have to target the previous elemental with Need for Speed and the last elemental created will not have haste. Your other 10-20 will however :). Also, as you might have surmised, this combo is a bit of a glass cannon. If something goes wrong then you just lost all of your lands (though with Lord Windgrace it's pretty easy to recover). I usually like execute this combo with either one or both of Splendid Reclamation and Pyroblast in hand to serve as insurance against Cyclonic Rift or counter magic.

I completely understand your stance on Crucible of Worlds and Scapeshift . The only reason my deck runs 'em is because I was lucky enough to crack one of each from M19 packs. Sadly those cards aren't that cheap.
In regards to Concordant Crossroads vs. Need for Speed , it really comes down to preference. Crossroads is a fine haste enabler (though since you do have access to red I would suggest one that isn't a symmetrical effect), but I like Need for Speed because it doesn't require a huge non-land board state to win a game. All you need is Titania, Protector of Argoth on the battlefield and you can then quickly take down the table. Throw in Splendid Reclamation for to an immense set of landfall triggers (basically building your own Scapeshift ). Plus being able to sac a land when you want is pretty solid with The Gitrog Monster and Lord Windgrace .
I think if you are not going to include Oracle or Azuza, then Rites of Flourishing is a fine replacement since you should benefit more from the extra land drops than your opponents. Wayward Swordtooth is another option that is a little easier on the wallet (though even he is getting up there these days). Just as an aside, one way you can get around the lack of Oracle and friends is to use 'big' ramp spells which drop multiple lands onto the battlefield at once. So cards like Summer Bloom (which you already run), Skyshroud Claim , Harvest Season , Traverse the Outlands , Collective Voyage , New Frontiers , Harrow , Far Wanderings (if you have threshold), and Animist's Awakening . Basically you use your ramp spells as replacements for your extra land plays. It's a bit slower than playing extra lands every turn, but the landfall effect is all the same.

Sorry for the double post, it looks like my linked deck is a little out of date. I just updated it to the current version I run, but it may take a few minutes for the updated version to appear (TappedOut is weird like that some times).

Hello there! As a longtime Jund lands player (even before our Lord and Savior Windgrace arrived) I know exactly how you feel when you say that the deck needs a bit more "punch". Lord Windgrace is a great value engine, but he often lacks that explosive play that just outright finishes games. Here are a few cards that I run in my deck that help make it more explosive for your consideration:
Scapeshift would be an excellent win-con to add to the deck because it is so versatile (plus it is relatively 'cheap' right now since it is in Standard). Pair it with either Retreat to Hagra or Ob Nixilis, the Fallen to remove players from the game. It makes a massive army with Titania, Protector of Argoth or Omnath, Locus of Rage . Basically if you are running landfall or land sac-recursion it does everything you want in one big explosive play.
I am also a huge fan of Need for Speed . Pair it with Titania and you now have a hasty army-in-a-can.
Nissa, Vital Force . It took me a while to come around to her but oh my does she do work in a lands matter deck.
I agree that Crucible of Worlds is a solid inclusion.
As a comment on your land number question, I found that 41 is the perfect number. I am hesitant to agree with earlier comment to cut lands below 40 (40 lands is fine though). Lord Windgrace and Tatyova, Benthic Druid are very different decks. Tatyova can get away with fewer lands because she draws cards off each land drop. She gets the best of both worlds where Lord Windgrace has to choose between drawing cards or advancing the board state. Besides, you can treat utility lands like Field of the Dead or Nurturing Peatland as actual cards with Lord Windgrace since they have great synergy with his abilities. That's just my opinion though.
If you need anymore ideas, feel free to check out my list: This deck has HUGE tracks of land. It should be up to date.
Good luck and happy deck building!
