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.



Rules



  • 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.)

Last day to post cards for December. It's still anybody's ballgame.

There are good days and there are bad days. Today is a good day for my health, I've been a little better for a couple days by now, and that's the really important thing. Bad day here instead, only one card I have nothing against (Flatline's), so I will have to vote one card that I have problems with or remarks on. I'll vote for the one that has the least serious problem. I'm sorry.

Votes:
Flatline
void_nothing - even though I really really dislike (I don't want to say "hate") the name. That "ww" in particular is... let's say bad to my own eyes. I had written something else way worse before, then I changed it, that's why I've put it this way. Anyway, I like the rest of the card, it's just the name.
Honorable mention
Show
netn10 - I love the card but unfortunately it doesn't work in the rules. You can't reference an ability word (landfall) like this. Unlike keyword abilities and keyword actions, ability words have no rules meaning and so you can't do this. You could have said "a card with awaken" because awaken is a keyword ability and can be referenced. But landfall is an ability word and can't be referenced this way. If it had worked, it would have been my second vote for sure.

Everything that's not an ability word would have been fine, so yes, kicker would have worked.
Also, your card up for voting today has a typo. It's Erebos, not Erabos as you wrote in that card's name.


Ordinary Night 3GW
Enchantment (R)
If a creature you control would leave the battlefield, exile it instead.
Creatures you control get +X/+X, where X is the number of creature cards in exile.

Unmoving One GG
Legendary Creature - Spirit R

If Unmoving One would be put into any zone from the battlefield and you control a land, instead choose a land you control and put it into that zone. Then remove all damage from Unmoving One.
Effects that would reduce Unmoving One's toughness to less than 1 reduce it to 1 instead.
