Token champions aren't part of your deck. They reside in the token supply outside of the game until an effect causes a token to be put into play. When a token champion leaves play for any reason (broken/banished/returned to hand/etc.) it is instead returned to the token supply (tokens can't go into someone's hand, deck, or discard pile). Besides that, they function like any other champion card when in play.

There's four common types of token champions in Epic.
Human, Zombie, Wolf, and Demon.

If an event says to put a zombie token into play, pull a zombie token card out of the token supply and put it into play. Simple as that.

Tokens tend to be used either as chump blockers or to slowly pick apart your opponent's health in individual attacks.
You'll notice several cards which buff your token champions, transforming them from cannon fodder into minor threats.
