Of these decks, the Mountain Dream and Buckland Romani has imagery most similar to the Rider Waite-Smith deck, with the Moon Garden only slightly less similar. Tarot of the Dead does not have scenic pips. Osho Zen is still a traditional tarot, but only just barely. The reimagings are quite radical. Morgan's Tarot is technically not a tarot, since it does not obviously divide into trumps and suits and it also has 88 cards. However, on a card by card basis, you can see the Tarot heritage.
The Buckland Romani deck is included here because of the attraction to (and often self-identification with) Gypsies. There is a similar attraction to Native Americans, and I have an entire page devoted to Native American Tarots.
One I don't have that belongs in this category, but is out of print, is T: The New Tarot for the Aquarian Age by John Starr Cooke. This deck was re-published as Word of One Tarot with an additional deck in 1992. You can see the Major Arcana for Word of One here.
