Scion_of_Darkness on Bearer of the Sunforger

Your question doesn't make sense. Had what in hand? Faith's Reward? You cast it in response to a board wipe effect, then the board gets wiped. Wipe resolves, Then Faith's Reward resolves. The mana comes from Keeper of Progenitus and Zhur-Taa Ancient effect ideally. That's why they're in there.

Sunforger? Same thing. You respond to a wipe by fetching Faith's Reward or Boros Charm choosing indestructible then casting it while the wipe is still on the stack. The Sunforger should already be equipped. I thought that much was implied.

Gift of Immortality. Probably doesn't work as well with the Bearer, but no ones told me how it doesn't work. Elaborate.

Hi, I made a Rosheen deck as my first non-constructed commander. I recommend using some mana doublers such as Zhur-Taa Ancient, Regal Behemoth, Mana Flare, and Magus of the Candelabra. There are also non-budget options such as Doubling Cube, Mana Reflection, and Caged Sun. I've started to add in over time. Mine has a ton of ramp in it and eventually I don't really need Rosheen to put out really fat hydras, X X/X tokens, or one hit an opponent or two with a copied burn spell. Today my friends were able to play a lot of removal against me, so I was just thinking some more protection for Rosheen early should be added. Gelatinous Genesis which you've got and Hydra Broodmaster are some of my favorite late game draws to create 10 10/10 fatties. I'm still considering Wort, the Raidmother as the commander instead, but so far Rosheen gives me needed advantage early in the game whereas Wort would definitely finish the game sooner after ramp...

I like mana doubling as much as the next guy but in my experience Zhur-Taa Ancient has never worked out, the reason for this is because you usually take a turn off playing him, and than EVERYBODY else at the table gets double mana, you benefit from it last,I would replace it with Dictate of Karametra just because of the flash, so you can play it on your opponents end step so you benefit first, which might allow you to end the game.

It'd be interesting to run an enchantress package with the number of enchantments you have. Cut some fat dragons/bad enchantments and artifacts for:

Otherwise I'd run the most color-useful signets for fixing and Fellwar Stone. Amulet of Vigor if you really want to keep running taplands. Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are pretty mediocre. Don't know about Herald’s Horn.

Cut the tri-lands for checklands like Dragonskull Summit? Or maybe a heftier reanimator (ie: Reanimate) package to cheat dragons in.

Cheater effects:

Dorks to consider:

Topdeck Ramp:

On theme and maybe useful:

You definitely want a Rubblehulk, Zhur-Taa Ancient, and maybe a Dungrove Elder or a Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer.

Deathstroke2791, just had a crazy game last night. I did get to play Time Stop which saved me from dieing for that moment. I was trying to win with an unprotected Laboratory Maniac, as my library was getting very low. We all had triple mana from two Zhur-Taa Ancient. I had 20 cards in my hand, and a Forbid which I was able to cast over and over, but my opponent was hell bent on killing my Laboratory Maniac so he could mill me. I protected it as long as I could, but the Tasigur, the Golden Fang player kept using his ability, and giving the other player the option to pick, and he just fed him Hinder and Beast Within over and over. I'm thinking I need to add an Elixir of Immortality or something similar, and I might try to grab one of those Scavenger Grounds to deal with graveyards. The whole game was stacked against me though. Right from the beginning there was a Linvala, Keeper of Silence out, and then a Perplexing Chimera which was keeping me from reliably doing anything (the owner of the chimera also had a Homeward Path out. I had a Void Stalker out but couldn't shuffle up the chimera cause of linvala. It was a rough game, but Kami still put up a good fight. How is your deck going for you?

Probably Skarrg Guildmage. If you want to go even further, you can swap Tattermunge Witch for Zhur-Taa Ancient.
