    The DCC: February 27th, 2015
    Welcome to the DCC!
    If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post in the All-New DCC Discussion Thread.


    How To Play

    How does this card-making game work? It's simple! Whenever your card receives a vote in the day's poll, you receive [1] point for the month. If your card ends up with the most votes for that day, you will receive [2] additional points for the month. In the event of a tie, each person who tied receives [1] additional point. At the end of each month, the person with the most points on the scoreboard wins that month, then the scoreboard is cleared for the next month. You can participate in as many or as few days as you want in any month.


    Rules

    • Each day you may post any card you want. On the next day all of the posted cards will be put into a poll the thread as long as your card didn't get disqualified - see the next point for more details. If you post more than one card in a DCC thread, only the first card you post will be taken.
    • When you vote, you need to make exactly two votes for two different people. Vote for the cards that are listed in the first post, not other cards being posted in the thread. If you notice that you've only voted for one person, include your second vote in a post, even if you're not submitting a card.
    • If you want to change your vote for any reason, post that change in the day's thread (you can include it with your card if you want). Changed votes in the discussion thread will be ignored.
    • Voting for only one person, for three or more people, or for yourself will earn you an asterisk by your name in the monthly leaderboard. So will failing to vote if you've posted a card. (We're not going to do anything about people who don't vote or post cards; that would be kind of silly.) This indicates that you're on probation for the next 21 days. If you're on probation and you make another improper vote, your card will be disqualified. Repeated disqualification is grounds for warnings and/or infractions for not following the game rules, so please don't do it.
    • Voting for everything in the poll will be grounds for a lifetime ban from the DCC. Don't do it. It just wastes the thread creators' time.
    • If you wish to post a render, please use the hyperlink option when posting your card and make the card name the image link. Renders are usually large enough to clog up the list, so submit a text-formed card and (optionally) a link in the name to the render.
    • This thread is just for your card submission. Take your questions/comments to our discussion thread. If it's a question, comment, or complaint about probation, PM me instead and I'll explain it.
    • Anyone can post the new thread for the day. When you post it, make sure that:

      • You have a poll in the thread;
      • You include everyone's cards (excluding cards that have been disqualified);
      • The poll is marked as public and multiple choice with a one-day time limit; and
      • You update the leaderboard with the previous day's scores.
    (An easy way to post the new thread is to hit the multiquote button on every post in the previous day's thread, then click Post Reply. Select everything in this post, copy it, and then paste it into the first post for a new thread. You'll have to clean up a few small things, like quote tags around the opening post and the previous day's cards.)

    I sometimes flush my own designs on account of wordiness / ugliness. Usually I just sit on them for a while and I'll think of a way to do it that's a little easier on the eyes.

    In the case of Ice Cauldron, it's one of those designs that time forgot. As neat as it is once you understand it, I don't think I could get behind it if it were released now. That text box is a hot mess. In my opinion, comprehensibility counts for something.
    Yeah, I've tried redesigning Ice Cauldron at least once myself. Part of the problem is the whole "...and you only get to use it for that card, but you can go ahead and cast that card without using that mana" edge case, which I'm pretty sure a redesigned version wouldn't bother including.

    At that point it could be as simple as "X, T: Note the type and amount of mana used to pay this activation cost." + "T: Add the last noted type and amount of mana to your mana pool." (well, not exactly, as you don't want to be able to activate the second ability without having activated the first ability once), which is a surprisingly short card... but generally that garners complaints about "memory issues" from some people.

    (You could even improve the card by basically having the noted mana operate as a stack - the last ability proceeds to also "erase" your last note in addition - but at that point the card might actually be a little too good to be printable.)

    The DCC: February 24th, 2015
    Welcome to the DCC!
    If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post in the All-New DCC Discussion Thread.


    How To Play

    How does this card-making game work? It's simple! Whenever your card receives a vote in the day's poll, you receive [1] point for the month. If your card ends up with the most votes for that day, you will receive [2] additional points for the month. In the event of a tie, each person who tied receives [1] additional point. At the end of each month, the person with the most points on the scoreboard wins that month, then the scoreboard is cleared for the next month. You can participate in as many or as few days as you want in any month.


    Rules

    • Each day you may post any card you want. On the next day all of the posted cards will be put into a poll the thread as long as your card didn't get disqualified - see the next point for more details. If you post more than one card in a DCC thread, only the first card you post will be taken.
    • When you vote, you need to make exactly two votes for two different people. Vote for the cards that are listed in the first post, not other cards being posted in the thread. If you notice that you've only voted for one person, include your second vote in a post, even if you're not submitting a card.
    • If you want to change your vote for any reason, post that change in the day's thread (you can include it with your card if you want). Changed votes in the discussion thread will be ignored.
    • Voting for only one person, for three or more people, or for yourself will earn you an asterisk by your name in the monthly leaderboard. So will failing to vote if you've posted a card. (We're not going to do anything about people who don't vote or post cards; that would be kind of silly.) This indicates that you're on probation for the next 21 days. If you're on probation and you make another improper vote, your card will be disqualified. Repeated disqualification is grounds for warnings and/or infractions for not following the game rules, so please don't do it.
    • Voting for everything in the poll will be grounds for a lifetime ban from the DCC. Don't do it. It just wastes the thread creators' time.
    • If you wish to post a render, please use the hyperlink option when posting your card and make the card name the image link. Renders are usually large enough to clog up the list, so submit a text-formed card and (optionally) a link in the name to the render.
    • This thread is just for your card submission. Take your questions/comments to our discussion thread. If it's a question, comment, or complaint about probation, PM me instead and I'll explain it.
    • Anyone can post the new thread for the day. When you post it, make sure that:

      • You have a poll in the thread;
      • You include everyone's cards (excluding cards that have been disqualified);
      • The poll is marked as public and multiple choice with a one-day time limit; and
      • You update the leaderboard with the previous day's scores.
    (An easy way to post the new thread is to hit the multiquote button on every post in the previous day's thread, then click Post Reply. Select everything in this post, copy it, and then paste it into the first post for a new thread. You'll have to clean up a few small things, like quote tags around the opening post and the previous day's cards.)

    Eh, the reason it's manifested is because there's no guarantee the original top card of your library is a permanent card, and at present manifest is the only way to get a face-down instant or sorcery onto the battlefield.

    Incidentally, that's where the second ability comes in. Practically speaking, it amounts to "unmorph anything, if you choose to pay its mana cost". The problem is that when it's an instant or a sorcery (or, really, an Aura as well), you can't just say "okay, turn it face up"; you have to go through the normal spell-casting process. So the process ends up being similar to casting things from your graveyard, except this time it's from the battlefield. (Yes, that means that "whenever a creature leaves the battlefield" triggers will get triggered.) The side effect is that it means that for things that can unmorph without problems, they have to go through a slightly more complicated process than just turning it face-up; but it's an existing process, at least.

    That said, I don't normally like "cast this from the battlefield" cards because there's rarely a good reason to do it that way instead of just flickering them. This happens to be one of the exceptions where you can't just do that.
