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.)
Vestige of Vitality2WWBB
Legendary Creature - Avatar (M)
Whenever you gain life for the first time a turn, double your life total.

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

Easy Dude. You're being very un-Dude.
Artifact Creature - Construct (R)
This creature gets +1/+1 for each artifact you control.
“When Twintomaton enters the battlefield, create a 0/0 colorless Construct artifact creature token with “This creature gets +1/+1 for each artifact you control.”
I'm pretty sure the rules for dash make it so that this must be returned to your hand even without stating it separately on the card. If not, it could be added as additional text. I'd love to know if I'm wrong about this.
•Creature — Human Shaman (R)
Dash 1R(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.)
Whenever Manic Mimeomancer attacks, it becomes a copy of another target nonlegendary attacking creature until end of turn.
Creature — Vedalken Cleric (U)
When Medical Researcher enters the battlefield, scry 2.
Whenever you scry, you gain that much life. "Today's research just may yield tomorrow's cure."
