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.)



Notes of the Day



Month quickly winding down.

Found Art Installation enters the battlefield with X appropriation counters on it.
Whenever another noncreature artifact with converted mana cost equal to the number of appropriation counters on Found Art Installation is put into a graveyard from anywhere, exile that card with an inspiration counter on it. Found Art Installation is a copy of the last card exiled with an inspiration counter on it, has all activated abilities of cards in exile with inspiration counters on them, and has this ability.

(Darn, I missed another day.)

@slimytrout Yeah, I picked it because, lately, I've been researching planet formation, and came across the concept of the deep water cycle (Water gets pulled down by a subducting plate and comes up later via volcanos). Ringwoodite is a mineral that proves the existence of oceans of water in the mantle of Earth. So, it was on my mind. Also I like pairing unusual effects with obscure materials.

Dark Roar
Instant U
Target creature you control fights target creature you don't control. For each of those creatures, prevent all damage that creature would deal this turn if it's blue or black and prevent all damage that would be dealt to that creature this turn if it's green.

@Rithaniel I wanted to decomplify and I tried but it lost the mechanical identity I wanted. This card is essentially Mairsil, the Pretender + Mirror of the Forebears, which is a house in my mairsil deck so that's what I was going for.
Two different counter types and double XX does needlessly complicate things, but I needed a qualifier or else it's broken, and I wanted it to be flexible. Also I couldnt really think of what to cost it. There's a lot of knobs to turn and rather than go through them all I turned to Chalice of the Void and hoped that would balance it rather than worry about it being overcosted or under.

Spark Plug 3
Artifact
x1, Pay X plus one life: Activate the loyalty ability of a card in exile with loyalty cost less than X. If that ability costs X to activate, X equals 1.

@Rithaniel: Oh, do you also study earth science? I have a friend in my department who's using a pressure chamber to study ringwoodite and wadsleyite in order to figure out just how many ocean-equivalents are stored in the mantle (and also on Mars), but I was surprised to see it pop up here.

Narshithrax, Panoptic Lord 7
Legendary Creature - Praetor (M)
As long as it's not your turn, Narsithrax has indestructible.
Whenever you cast a spell, you may put a permanent card with lesser converted mana cost from your hand onto the battlefield.
Whenever an opponent casts a spell, that player sacrifices a permanent with lesser converted mana cost.
6/6
