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 is the last-ever DCC entry thread on this site. Tomorrow I'll ask everyone to vote one final time, without entering. I'd also like to ask everyone to enter the August DCC on MTGNexus, starting tomorrow night eastern US time with the thread dated the 1st!
Brago, King of the Underworld4WU
Legendary Creature - Spirit (Mythic)
If a creature entering the battlefield or leaving the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time. 4WU: Exile target creature, then return it to the battlefield.
Righteous Sandstorm deals 2 damage to target attacking or blocking creature.
Overload 1R(You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of “target” with “each.”) “The Abzan are just too focused on the past, but it’s now that we have to fight. That’s why I’ve chosen to leave them and put my skills at the service of the Mardu.”
—Sapiran, Ainok sandcaller
Practice of Versatility1W
If an effect would cause you to discard all the cards in your hand, instead you discard no cards. XU, Reveal a creature card with converted mana cost X in your hand, Sacrifice Practice of Versatility: Target creature becomes a copy of that creature card until end of turn. You may have that creature get +2/+2 until end of turn. "The better part of warfare is making entirely certain never to run out of options." - Nol Cannumi, overlord of Oltrophe
Choose one —
• End the turn.
• Restart the game. “The hardest part of ending is starting again.”
Yes, the flavor text is a quote from "Waiting for the end" by Linkin Park. A song and a line that are very appropriate for this day. The first line of the song would also be: "This is not the end, this is not the beginning...", as would be many others from that song.

• 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.)
Enchantment - Aura (Rare)
You control enchanted creature.
When enchanted creature dies, return that card to the battlefield under your control with a +1/+1 counter on it.
Exile target permanent you own. Return that card from exile to the battlefield at any time. When you return it to the battlefield in this way, untap all creatures you control.
