I'm afraid I just got a Lyme diagnosis and the symptoms have been kicking my butt, so my May final judgements will be a bit delayed -- will get them done once the antibiotics start to kick in.
Ouch, get well soon.

@Lorn Asbord Schutta deserves another mention for a tremendous victory in May's MCC with a very flavorful final round card.

Unrelatedly, is anyone interested in hosting the MCC in July?

And I want to give my thanks to @netn10 for being a rival finalist and to @void_nothing and @slimytrout for judging.

It is unlikely to matter given how the scores stand, but I felt it would be a bit dishonest not to report my own card for a Quality error that I just noticed: the templating update as of MH2 is that the card should read "Activate only if there are two or fewer..." -- it no longer needs to include the "this ability" text. @StonerOfKruphix

Great demonstration of fair play! To be honest, I wasn't aware of the new template, so I'll correct the score right now.

And the round is closed - I'll be solo judging this month, so please bear with me.
You shouldn't have to judge alone -- I can hop in and help out. To be honest, I meant to volunteer earlier but lost track of when the round was ending.

I'm really glad to hear that. Thank you, I'm closing the round for real now and will include you in the judge assignments.

@void_nothing

I have two questions regarding the second round of July.
First, does the card has to change zones? Or can it stay on the battlefield, as long as it is due to replacement effect of dying?
Secondly, could the effect be conditional, for instance:
"If this creature would die, if [condition], put it into [zone] instead of graveyard."?

Both of those are fine. The idea is, under some conditions, the card can cause dying creatures not to go to a graveyard.

@void_nothing Clarification for July Round 3:
void_nothing wrote:

Subchallenge 2: Your card does not have any non-evergreen mechanics.
Does this actually mean "non-evergreen keywords" or "any rules text except for evergreen keywords"? The card can't have non-evergreen keywords, that's clear, but can it have un-keyworded non-evergreen rules text, or it can't have any rules text besides evergreen keywords? Thanks in advance.

@void_nothing I am currently hitchhiking and I have internet access only from time to time. I will try to make a submission for July today, but I am waiting for clarification in rules discussion. If I would not do it today, I will try to make it as early as possible, but since I cannot predict the next time I will have internet connection, feel free to close the round if you decide that the wait takes to long.

@void_nothing Does "variable power and toughness" only refer to */* and X/X, or are cards that boost their own power/toughness or give themselves +1/+1 counters also not going to score those points?

The former. No */* or X/X is allowed. Of course stuff like Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is basically skirting the challenge and probably won't get the full point.

August MCC, Round 3 - Cephalopod Time

Main Challenge: Design a Nautilus, Octopus, or Squid creature card
Subchallenge 1: Your card is not blue.
Just to make sure - it is about only card's color, not color identity, right?
