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, 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.


  • Each day you may post any card you want. On the next day all of the posted cards will be put into 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 void_nothing and/or the month's DCC organizer.
  • When posting make sure that:
    • You have included all of the previous day's entries.
    • 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

Hopefully getting about 10 hours of sleep.

Notes on emily's card
Personally my view is that hate cards that are fringe playable in most cases, but are great against the thing they're hating are great, but cards that are actually good against everything are oppressive. I think this is a nice design and flavorful, but it would make the non-hate case worse, otherwise it's almost never wrong to maindeck it (or just throw it into a casual deck) and then you get to randomly oppress some strategies without a real investment.

Yes, I had considered various other options: making its own keyword, just using vanishing, and/or increasing the mana cost to 4W. But that card is supposed to come from one of my custom sets, private for now, and in that set both the mechanic being written out and the specific number being four make a lot of sense. Of course, you just couldn't know this, and it's hard to explain without saying more about that set and the story it's meant to tell. Maybe one day I will. I don't know.

As for your card for today, that's a neat idea, but unfortunately it doesn't work in the rules. Snow mana is not a type of mana you can add to your mana pool, it's just defined as "mana from a snow permanent".
CR 106.11 wrote: If an effect would add mana represented by one or more snow mana symbols to a player's mana pool, that much colorless mana is added to that player's mana pool.
So that card is functionally the same as "Add CCC."
Honor the Ancestors 2G
Sorcery (U)
Return target card from your graveyard to your hand.
Jump-start (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a card in addition to paying its other costs. Then exile this card.)
"Making mistakes of your own isn't a problem, but repeating ones that have already been made by your ancestors is. Honor their memory by learning from their experiences."

Note: "Target" prevents you from returning the card you discarded to jump-start.

And a Few Quotes
"Why are numbers beautiful? It's like asking why is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony beautiful. If you don't see why, someone can't tell you. I know numbers are beautiful. If they aren't beautiful, nothing is."

“I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.”
