* Try to unlock all characters first. Beating the game with Isaac is certainly possible, but you may prefer other characters.
* Beating Mom for the first time is only the beginning. In fact, the game doesn't even consider it a "Mom Kill." You have to now beat Mom's Heart in subsequent playthroughs.The more times you beat Mom's Heart, the more you unlock.
* Azazel, a new character to Rebirth, is awesome in that he can fly over any obstacle to get at items you might otherwise have to pass on.
* Move around a lot when you're in a room with mobile enemies. Standing still is guaranteed to get you killed. If you feel like you're having a really great run, feel free to skip pills. Sometimes they have negative effects and can ruin your playthrough.
* Take notes and keep track of all the tarot cards. Some are good, some are bad, and some are GREAT.
* If you're not a visual learner... well, you may have some trouble with Rebirth in that case. When you use an item it's added to the item list, but only with a name and picture. Do your best to remember what each item does, and write down descriptions if that helps.
* Blow up blue flames for a chance at soul hearts.
* If you have an abundance of bombs, blow up the middle of walls in an attempt to find secret rooms.
* Deals with the devil are the ultimate risk/reward. You lose a heart, but the items offered in that room are often great.
Rebirth allows the option to input seeds, which recreates the level someone else played. It doesn't count towards progress, but it's a cool way to experience unique level layouts or use items that other people discovered. Seed codes can be found by pressing start while playing and accessing the menu, in the top left corner.

In order to unlock The Lost, you must kill yourself in very specific ways in a specific order. First you must die to a Mulliboom as Isaac in one of the Basement floors. Second you must die to a bomb blast as Magdalene in one of the Caves floors. Third you must die to Mom's Foot as Judas in one of the Depths floors. You can use seeds for the first three parts but not Azazel. Last you must die to the second stage of Satan as Azazel in Sheol. You cannot die in other ways between these specific death runs, you cannot win with any character, and you cannot use seeds. You can, however, reset between runs. If you die and quickly hold R to reset before the death screen comes up, it does not count as a death and you can continue to unlock the lost. The Lost starts with flying, and has no health, nor can he gain health through normal health pick ups. However, he can take devil deals for free.
This trick requires the Blank Card (from defeating Isaac in the Cathedral with Eden), Jera Rune (from completing the "High Brow" challenge), and the D20 (from defeating ??? in the Chest with Isaac). Having the D6 (from defeating Isaac in the Cathedral with ???) is also helpful. Start by finding a room that has at least one battery on the ground. Alternately, spawn them with the 48 Hour Energy pill. Remove all other items from the room. Use charges from somewhere else to copy those batteries with the Blank Card and Jera until you have at least three of them. Use batteries from the room to copy batteries for a net gain. Keep doing this until the room is filled with batteries to virtually have infinite charges for any activated item. Then, obtain a Judgement card (from Wheel Of Fortune cloning, Tarot Deck, etc.). Use the Blank Card and Jera
in a new room to copy a large number of Judgement cards. Go to another new room, and copy a large number of coins, keys and hearts. Note: Try spawning a few Beggars and bombing them. Use the resources in this room to refill when required. If you need a D20, use the Judgement cards to spawn Beggars and farm them until you get one from a Key Beggar chest. Finally, use the following four steps to complete the process:
1.Fill the largest room available with items such as coins. A room is considered full when it starts replacing old items with new ones.
2.Use the D20 to reroll the items, open all the chests, pick up any passive items, pills, and other helpful objects and repeat. Avoid collecting items that are not needed.
3.Once a D6 drops, repeat the steps in a smaller room to get a few activated items. Swap any activated items that you want to keep elsewhere.
4.Reroll the items in the main room with the D6, collect anything desired, and repeat the process. Use the D20 to refill as needed.
