    The DCC: February 23rd, 2018

    Welcome to the DCC!
    If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post in the DCC Discussion Thread.


    How To Play


    How does this card-making game work? It's simple! Whenever your card receives a vote in the day's poll, you receive [1] point for the month. If your card ends up with the most votes for that day, you will receive [2] additional points for the month. In the event of a tie, each person who tied receives [1] 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.


    Rules


    • 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.)

    I like this. There are seemingly development issues here with untap combos but they'd probably more along the lines of silly and fun combos than degenerate ones. I think this mechanic is more like totem armor than anything, and the Umbras were very fun in their Limited and in various Commander decks. The other issue is the complexity of copy effects at common, but meh.

    How was the Ki'pamu League formed and how come Arsenal City came to be a center for producing magitech war machines?

    @Tim1137 - I feel like your card would be one of the most powerful counterspells in all of Magic, and probably the strongest in Modern. It would have to cost at least 1U. Also, the first ability is just so much stronger than the second that I can't really see the second ability being used very much.

    Creature — Human Pirate (U)
    You may sacrifice two Treasures rather than pay Hired Hand's mana cost.

    I just don't think any card that breaks Limited games should cost three mana regardless of rarity. Even if the chance of opening this card is disappearingly small, it would ruin any Limited game it got played in.

    Some contestants commented on spelling errors in my entry. I'm looking for them but I can't find them. English is not my mother language so I must be missing something. Could I get them pointed as to no make them again? Thanks!

    No spelling errors, but formatting errors. Just watch your punctuation. The only glaring thing I see is Neighing Sky-Stallion's pump ability is missing "Neighing Sky-Stallion gets..." at the beginning.

    "If a planeswalker..." is basically an on-off switch. You answer the question with yes or no and if one, two, or seven hundred planeswalkers did in fact enter the battlefield under your control in a given turn, you get the token. Also, this is not a delayed trigger, it's a simple triggered ability of the enchantment. If the enchantment is not on the battlefield at the beginning of the end step, it does not trigger, but if it leaves the battlefield after it triggers but before it resolves, you still get the token as triggered abilities on the stack are independent of their sources.

    Quote from Xion22 »
    Thank you very much. The debate was because of eminence being a broad effect. Much appreciated

    It's really not. Eminence is just an ability word for something that applies in the command zone and on the battlefield. If the creature is on the battlefield, it's not in the command zone, which means it functions as a normal triggered ability.

    "You" means a card's controller while it's on the battlefield. This means if your opponent cast a Vampire spell, they would create a token.

    I can't really add much to what others have said; basically, this is never going to be a fair card in addition to having a bunch of busywork associated with it. Back to the drawing board.
