You get a token. Unless otherwise specified (ie Hunted Horror), tokens are put under the control of the person who controls the spell/ability that creates them.

Since you are casting Vile Rebirth, you control the spell and you will get the token.

If I play Vile Rebirth on a creature in an opponent's graveyard - do I get the zombie token, or does the owner of the exiled card get the token?

I would run with 3xDisfigure and 3xTragic Slip. It seems that you could turn the Morbid trigger on more often than not and Tragic Slip handles the Ulamog's Crushers and Gurmag Anglers for only 1 mana. Also, I like Shamble Back instead of Vile Rebirth. Sorcery speed but it gains the 2 life that can be relevant in close matchups.

A lot of removal Vile Rebirth + Shamble Back make a good combination in my experience.

Rats show your problems I think:

True: you can only have upto 4x copies of a card in your deck (a Playset), unless otherwise stated: Relentless Rats.

True: But you can have 4x of Pack Rat and make as many tokens as you want.

As for what a Token is:

True: I think you asked "they aren't cards per say". They are WHATEVER you choose it to be. A penny? I depends on how it was put there that counts. They are what was told to be put into play. A Copy of a card, or just a 2/2 Black Zombie Token from Vile Rebirth say. And you can have as many tokens as you want... another example: 2x Hornet Queen possibly means 8x 1/1 deathtouch hornets OTB and 2x hornet queens also.

as for something like Portal/Godsend... you CREATE a token that is a COPY of the Exiled Card, say a penny. The word "Legendary" is copied too. you just got lazy and didn't write it on the penny!

Same out come will happen when Hard-Casting a card. If you Equip Godsend to your 1st Rat on the battlefield, say, and play a 2nd Godsend OTB to your side, choose one and the other is sent to the Graveyard. (I think keep the Equip'ed one in this case).

But Legendary rules were changed and you AND YOUR opponent can both now have, Say a Godsend, on BOTH sides of the field.

As for planeswalkers; same as Legendary rules; two on your side and keep only one, of your choice. BUT, Chandra, Pyrogenius is the same as Chandra, Pyromaster ... Legendary or Planeswalker on the middle line of Card Identification..... Planeswalker - Chandra... they both cannot be on the Battlefield at the same time, Or the "Legendary Rule" applies...

hopefully that helps. cheers

Hello! I love tribal decks, and have a few suggestions for you, take them as you wish:

1) Get more lands ASAP. The standard amount of lands a 60 card deck should have is 24, but mainly it depends on the average CMC (Converted mana cost) of your cards. I recommend 22-24 for this deck as you are using Dark Ritual. Also, try to stay at 60 cards as it keeps your deck efficient.

2) Use Gatherer. Gatherer is a website that allows you to look up cards based on whatever search parameters you put in, and simply taking a peak at a search for Zombies will help you plan out your deck better.

3) Get Death Baron, Geralf's Messenger, and Gravecrawler. These cards are staples of Zombie deck, and IIRC don't cost that much.

4) Get rid of Ghoulcaller's Chant, Vile Rebirth, and Diabolic Tutor. These cards aren't needed for your deck, and their are much better cards out there. I recommend getting removal like Doom Blade, Infest. Geth's Verdict, etc. Also, Black has great card draw like Sign in Blood or Phyrexian Arena. Lastly, look into Death Cloud for fun shenanigans.

5) Get a tribal card. Door of Destinies is a great example of this, as it's powerful when used in a dedicated tribal deck. Another example is Coat of Arms.

That's all I can think of for the moment, good luck!

Maybe replace Vile Rebirth with Shamble Back for the extra life?

Appetite for Brains ... Despise ... I didn't see them in there....

Cremate .. Beckon Apparition .. Vile Rebirth.. something to do with those Discards? and these are Instant's???

Black Cat Vs.Drainpipe Vermin not sure, (2CMC) but Cat is a "Random" Discard??? and doesn't need to be paid to activate...

or maybe a Wight of Precinct Six? again something to do with the Discards?

Seeing this is "Your" take on the Rack... what about adding in Blue and the Mill??? and Alt-Win-Con's

Jace's Phantasm might work along with the Wight's if you liked them???

also opens options like Dimir Charm and Psychic Strike Mind Grind Pilfered Plans

Mind Sculpt and Tome Scour with the Phantasm/Wight's???

Quicken might work with all the sorceries you have (20 of them)?

Just thought's good luck...
