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
This note will probably remain the same the whole month: This month of the DCC will all be taking place here on MTGSalvation, MTGNexus will formally open to the public in mid-July, the first MTGNexus DCC will begin in August.
Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield under your control, create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token.
Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, create a 0/1 green Plant creatures token.
Whenever another nontoken, noncreature, nonland permanent enters the battlefield under your control, create a 3/3 green Treefolk creature token. “Just let nature do its job and you’ll reap the best benefits.”
The rarity on this one is difficult, in a full set where this would be relevant, it would probably NEED to be rare, but if it were part of a precon, or modern horizon auxiliary set, maybe uncommon though maybe 1 more? Ugh.
Creature - Sliver Shapeshifter (R)
You may have ~ enter the battlefield as a copy of any sliver on the battlefield. When the hive happens upon a particularly useful mutation it can often draw the ire of other mortal races, so the local queen sets about replicating the success before the original is killed.
Mirror on the Wall5
Legendary Artifact (Rare) T: The player with most life gains 3 life, the player with most creature creates a 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying, and the player with most cards in their hand draws a card. Do not ask the mirror if you won't like the answer.
Illusionary Realm 1WU
Illusion and spirit creatures you control get +0/+3
Whenever a non-illusion non-spirit creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control and that creature isn't blocked it gets -1/-0 until end of turn
Votes: void_nothing, Indighost (I'm convinced that your card should be rare in any set, regardless of whether the set is Standard-legal or supplemental, and that it should indeed cost more mana, but I just love the idea and the flavor)
Search your library for a land card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. If Terrain Shift was kicked, destroy target land an opponent controls. Winds and water erode mountains, and with their fragments create new lands downstream.

• The two public custom sets I've been part a part of the design team for: "Brotherhood of Ormos" - Blog post with all info - set thread - design skeleton / card list || "Extinctia: Homo Evanuit" - Blog post with all info - set thread - card list spreadsheet
• "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.)
Creature - Goblin Artificer (Uncommon) T: Add CCC. Spend this mana only to cast artifact spells or activate abilities of artifacts. At the end of turn, sacrifice that artifact.
Arc Edge 3R

Arc Edge deals 1 damage to up to one target player, 1 damage to up to one target creature, and 1 damage to up to one target planeswalker

你好 have you eaten?
I'm a simple Magic player since 1 year ago from China. Now I live in New Jersey.
Target creature with flying gets +X/+0 and gains trample until end of turn, where X is its power.
Flyingcycling 4(4, Discard this card: Search your library for a card with flying, reveal it, and put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.)
