How does this card-making game work? It's simple! Whenever your card receives a vote in the day's poll, you receive  point for the month. If your card ends up with the most votes for that day, you will receive  additional points for the month. In the event of a tie, each person who tied receives  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.
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.)
Notes of the Day
I THINK... I THINK I DID IT. I THINK THE NUMBERS ARE RIGHT.
My tables updated with yesterday's votes are attached here. The scores in the OP are almost correct today, there are only two people who have one less point than they should: netn10 should have 32 points (31 in the OP) and void_nothing should have 24 (23 in the OP). You probably missed my own votes yesterday (I'm the only person who voted for both of them yesterday). All the rest is correct according to my tables (also see discussion thread).
Votes: netn10, Phyrexian Editor
Creature — Illusion Hydra (R)
Zameck Hydra enters the battlefield with three +1/+1 counters on it.
When Zameck Hydra enters the battlefield, proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)
Evoke (G/U)(G/U)(You may cast this spell for its evoke cost. If you do, it’s sacrificed when it enters the battlefield.) Not all of the guildhall guardians are water creatures, and not all of them are corporeal.
Extort (Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay (W/B). If you do, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain that much life.)
Extort. (Each instance of Extort on a permanent triggers separately). A deliberately apt metaphor for the repayment process.
Creature - Cat Warrior (U)
When Jedit’s Hunter enters the battlefield, look at target opponent’s hand. You may reveal a creature card from there. If you do, that player puts it onto the battlefield, then Jedit’s Hunter fights it.
Exile the top card of your library. Until end of turn, you may play that card. If you cast Beta Test for its jump-start cost, add RR.
Jump-start (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a card in addition to paying its other costs. Then exile this card.)
I THINK... I THINK I DID IT. I THINK THE NUMBERS ARE RIGHT.
Almost! You only have me and IcariiFA reversed (I should have 42 points and IcariiFA 39, EDIT: he beat me at pointing this out as he posted while I was writing this), and should put void_nothing before yourself (I'm sorry) because void_nothing has a higher score than you, even though they're both correct. Flatline also didn't get any point yesterday, so the +1 should not be there, but the score of 59 is correct. Updated tables attached.
Votes: netn10, IcariiFA
Honorable mention for Flintlock. I like the idea of multiple extort very much, but four times is a little too swingy in my opinion (it's a potential eight-life swing whenever you cast a spell if you have the mana to pay the quadruple extort).
Creature — Dinosaur (R) Enrage — Whenever Dinopack Alpha is dealt damage, create a 4/4 green Dinosaur creature token. Ferocious — Whenever Dinopack Alpha attacks, if you control a creature with power 4 or greater, draw a card. If you want to be the leader of the pack, you need a pack to lead.

• "The Lion's Lair", my article series about MTG and custom card design in particular. Latest article here. Here is the article index.Rather outdated by now, and based on the old MCC rubric, but I'm leaving this here for anybody that might be interested anyway.
• My only public attempt at being a writer: the story of my Leonin custom planeswalker Jeff Lionheart. (I have a very big one that I'm working on right now but that's private for now, and I don't know if I will ever actually publish it, and I also have ideas for multiple future ones, including one where I'm going to reprise Jeff.)
Paladin of the InedibleWGR
Creature - Goblin Knight (R)
Flash. First Strike.
When ~ enters the battlefield, it fights target blocking or blocked creature you don't control.
3/1 His tribe promised him a single moment of glory, followed by death. Bant promised him glory without end, followed by shiny medals.
Creature - Bear Shaman (R)
When Primal Instigator enters the battlefield put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control. That creature fights target creature an opponent controls.
Dash 3RG(You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it’s returned from the battlefield to its owner’s hand at the beginning of the next end step.)
Target attacking creature that's blocked by exactly one creature becomes unblocked. The creature that was blocking it deals damage equal to its power to the attacking player.
Draw a card.
I'm pretty sure the second ability doesn't prevent you from tapping a permanent to activate its ability. At that point you've already activated the ability, right? Please let me know if I'm wrong.
Thalia, Champion of the Order2WW
Legendary Creature — Human Soldier (R)
Nonland permanents your opponents control enter the battlefield tapped.
Activated abilities of tapped permanents your opponents control can't be activated.

Destroy up to one target enchanted creature, then create a token aura enchantment called "Foreboding Mark" with "enchant creature" and "enchanted creature can't block" and attach it to target creature you don't control.
