Exile target creature card from a graveyard. Put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.
I really like Cemetery Reaper as a card. He just boosts all your zombies, while giving you the ability to get another zombie in play fairly quickly. Also consider Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the life gain.Perhaps even Vile Rebirth has a place in the deck? After all, it punishes reanimate decks and allows you to get yet another threat in play.
Tokens are good in relativity and work in a handful of tribals. Vile Rebirth , for example, is a terrible card in EDH. My answer to reanimator strategies is Withered Wretch , as it is a continuous effect. Lich Lord of Unx is slow, compared to some of his counterparts, like Cemetery Reaper . Forlorn Pseudamma feels like too much maintenance. Havengul Runebinder crossed my mind, but I feel like it anti-synergies with cards like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in addition to being slow. Syphon Flesh is far to expensive for an effect no one in multiplayer will appreciate. Archdemon of Unx doesn't fit. Army of the Damned is really expensive.
As mentioned earlier, I don't think tokens make a zombie tribal, which is where my earlier doubts for Endless Ranks of the Dead came from. Zombie tribals feel more to be built around several recursion and sacrifice effects, semi-mill, and some elements of generating advantage. Thanks for checking in on the deck.
Since I said that I think token cards make tribal decks happy, the only cards that make zombie tokens that i like that arent in here are Vile Rebirth (an answer to reanimate decks while being flavorful and making a token! all for one mana), Lich Lord of Unx , Forlorn Pseudamma , Havengul Runebinder , Moan of the Unhallowed , Syphon Flesh (CARD ADVANTAGE BIG TIME), Archdemon of Unx (so pricy :/ ), and Army of the Damned (damned mana cost if you ask me).
Oh, looks like I was wrong. The controller of Vile Rebirth does get the token.
However, I still don't think it'd fit very well in this deck. It focuses more on synergies between different creatures than tokens.
