Another thought for fun creatures is adding a Zhur-Taa Ancient

What I would take out: Tireless Tracker because it costs too much to sac the clues.

What I would add in: Zhur-Taa Ancient, Sword of the Animist, Wayward Swordtooth, Zendikar Resurgent, and Traverse the Outlands are all good ramps. Lurking Predators is a personal favorite. If your facing a counter deck then Prowling Serpopard is great. And last but not least Legion Loyalist. Legion Loyalist is only good if your deck is attack-oriented (which i'm pretty sure it is) All in all +1 on your deck!

Vale a pena alguma dessas? Keeper of Progenitus, Dictate of Karametra ou Zhur-Taa Ancient.

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:

Big beater:

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