    Exactly the same as every other 2/2 black Zombie creature, except that once it leaves the battlefield, it ceases to exist.

    I think flien2's question is something along the lines of, "How do I put a token on the battlefield?"

    If that's the case: tokens are representations of creatures in non-card form. Very nearly anything can be used to represent a token, so long as two things are true about the object you're using:

    1. You can clearly establish whether the object is tapped or untapped, and

    2. The object can't be mistaken for a real card/permanent on the battlefield.

    So, for example, you can use a non-sleeved face-down Magic card as a token -- but only if you're playing with sleeves. Otherwise, a non-sleeved face-down Magic card could easily be confused as being a face-down Morph creature, which is obviously not the case.

    Anyway, Wizards of the Coast prints actual tokens for you to use in more recent MtG sets. However, you're by no means required to use those to play with tokens. An example of something you can use to represent your tokens: quarters or other similarly sized coins (heads can represent being untapped, while tails can represent being tapped).

    Here's the base definition of what a token is in Magic, straight from the Comprehensive Rules:

    110.5. Some effects put tokens onto the battlefield. A token is a marker used to represent any permanent
    that isnít represented by a card.
    I hope all of the above helps! If what you were trying to ask was about something entirely different, please let us know! We're more than happy to clear up any misconceptions you may have.
