Ramble: "by themselves" does not mean "no creatures on board". in almost any given boardstate, Phyrexian Rebirth outperforms March of Souls if the conditions are the same.

Short version
March of Souls > Martial Coup > Phyrexian Rebirth
but redundancy = consistancy so all 3 is the correct awnser
2 more redundancies for a total of 5 would be best awnser

Phyrexian Rebirth is like, the greatest followup to March of Souls anyway, I'm not really sure what we're arguing about, you already admitted to playing both :P

I can't say i agree with the comment "By themselves, Phyrexian Rebirth beats March of Souls"
If both cards were played by themselfs they would both wiff so the lowest cmc would win
Both cards are board state dependent there for there value can only be determined by the board state at the time of casting
since we don't know what the opponents boardstate will be you can only determine both cards value off of the board your going to create and probabilities of opponents responces
The deck in question specializes in creating a large number of weenies
The deck does have some populate mechanics but it is more likely to Anthem
So based on what im seeing in the deck Phyrexian Rebirth had a potential to create (2-4) 12/12 - 14/14 tokens that may benefit from a +5/+5 anthem with in 2-4 turns
While March of Souls in the same circumstances would create (10-20) 10/10 - 20/20 tokens that will benefit from a +5/+5 anthem with in 1 turn all this for 1 mana cheeper
As for opponent responses
Both cards could be countered so that factor is void in comparison
however your opponent is much more likely to have single target removal then a board wipe
I think its very clear that in this deck March of Souls would be the better choice

The “with the right setup” is the problem. You’re banking on drawing specific cards that are only 1 in 99, and hoping the opponent doesn’t run interaction. By themselves, Phyrexian Rebirth beats March of Souls .

That's in the deck too. It works great with Fresh Meat . 10 mana to pull it off though. However March of Souls feeds into a token strategy better than Phyrexian Rebirth with the right set up it yields better results nearly every time. These results will vary based on the decks I'm up against and the situation the board state presents. But from my experience since both are in the deck. March of Souls has won me the game and Phyrexian Rebirth has not.

Erza420 I see your point but I'm the token deck I likely destroyed creatures my opponent controlled that were much more scary than ones I have. They could have say for instance a Beast Whisperer , a Eternal Witness , a God-Eternal Rhonas , and a Voracious Hydra . And I have 10 1/1 soldier tokens, a Selvala, Explorer Returned and a 0/1 eldrazi token. I cast March of Souls and basically replace all those creatures with 1/1 flyers. Now that player has downgraded to 5 1/1 flyers and I have not downgraded and stayed then same with 12 1/1 flyers. But I'm a token deck I prepared for the wipe. So I have casted Cathars' Crusade prior to it. Or I casted Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite the next turn. Or I had Doubling Season out before casting March of Souls . Or I cast Beastmaster Ascension befor I attack with them. This is why it's perfect Erza420 and that's why more people should be playing it in the right token deck and build.

March of Souls also gives your opponents tokens that can then just block yours. that's why it's not used.
