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.)
Creature - Horror (R)
When an equipment enters the battlefield under your control, create a 0/0 black Germ creature token, then attach that equipment to it.
Germ creatures you control get +1/+1.
- Return target creature with a converted mana cost of 6 or less from your graveyard to the battlefield
- Destroy target creature or planeswalker.
- Draw 2 cards and lose 2 life.
Creature - Devil (R) 1R, T: Target opponent may sacrifice an enchantment. If they don't or if they can't, create a 1/1 red Devil creature token with "When this creature dies, it deals 1 damage to any target." Then each Devil you control deals 1 damage to that player.
Imps you control and other devils you control get +1/+0. "Demons delight in the offerings of mortals. Devils would rather just take it."
Archimediesx - once again because of Quality mistakes, in this case the name should be bolded and there should be no full stop after exalted, too bad because I like that card very much.
void_nothing - no problems with the card, I like it as it is, I just liked those I voted more.
Flatline - I'm in love with the flavor of that card (it heavily reminds me of both Ormos and another custom plane I still have in my mind), less with the mechanics.
I see multiple modal cards today. I had already planned to post this today, but let me join the party too!
Choose one —
• Create a green and white 2/2 Cat creature token.
• Cats you control get +2/+1 until end of turn.
• You gain life equal to the number of Cats you control. The roar of the king of the pride makes Arahbo itself tremble.
@Archemediesx...I would like your card a lot better if it only triggered whenever a creature you control attacked alone.
@MamaThana...What is setting the value of X? Is your card supposed to cost xBBB?
@Subject16...Hmmmm. Except in a few niche scenarios, why would anyone choose to not just draw the card? Is this just supposed to be a hellbent enabler, or am I missing something?
Inside Job costs 4 less to cast if it targets a creature that shares a name with a creature you control.
Destroy target creature.
Choose one or both -
• You may change any targets of target spell or ability.
• All damage that would be dealt this turn to target creature or planeswalker is dealt to another target creature or planeswalker instead.
Nomadic Master 4G
Creature--Elf Nomad Druid (Rare)
Creatures you control have vigilance if you control a plains, flying if you control an island, lifelink if you control a swamp, and haste if you control a mountain T: Add two of any color
Votes: Bravelion83, Mamathana (You forgot to include what X represents in your design, but it's a great lich all the same!)
Utopian Bounder 1UG
Creature - Merfolk Mutant (U)
When Utopian Bounder enters the battlefield, return target creature to its owner's hand.
Metamorphosis (Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player or planeswalker, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a creature with power equal to or less than this creature's power. Put that card onto the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it, then put all cards exiled in this way on the bottom of your library in a random order, then exile this creature.)
Sad Days Are Upon Us2UUUU
Target opponent cannot tap permanents until your next combat phase.
Punishment (When this card is put into a graveyard from anywhere, exile it. Any player may chose to cast it from exile for free. If they do, they must choose an opponent to name a number less than their current life total. They lose that much life.)
Vestige of Vitality2WWBB
Legendary Creature - Avatar (M)
Whenever you gain life for the first time a turn, double your life total.
Whenever you lose life for the first time a turn, you lose half your life, rounded down. The one guarantee in life is death.
Choose one -
* Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap it. It gains haste until end of turn.
* Target creature gets +4/+4 until end of turn.
Entwine - Tap an untapped Beast you control. (Choose both if you pay the entwine cost.)
Creature - Goblin Shaman (Rare)
When Goblin Impressionist enters the battlefield, you may have it become a copy of another target nonlegendary creature until end of turn, except it has haste.
Dash 2RR(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.) He's famous across the warren for his outstanding impression of a goblin.
Artifact - Equipment (U)
Equipped creature has +0/+2, vigilance
Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a creature, put a curse counter on that creature, that creature gains, "at the beginning of each upkeep, this creature's controller loses 1 life."
Kasogu, Military Commander2WW
Legendary Creature — Human (R)
As Kasogu, Military Commander enters the battlefield, choose Knight, Soldier, or Warrior, then choose first strike, lifelink, or vigilance.
Kasogu is the chosen type in addition to its other types and has the chosen ability.
Other creatures you control of the chosen type get +1/+1 and have the chosen ability. Cavalry, infantry, or lancers, he doesn’t care. Just give him any military squad and he’ll lead it into battle.

• 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.)
Votes: kwanyeegor, IcariiFA (although I would cost it at 2WB)
