After talking with some people at GenCon and seeing a Farm themed EDH deck, me and my brother came up with the idea of doing a Wizard of Oz themed EDH deck since we live in Kansas.
Now I think running Reaper King as the General will work the best, gives us access to all the colors and is on theme for the deck. The goal is to line up Legendary Creatures for all the main characters. So I am looking for some help is putting the deck list together, and in needing that help I turn to the good people here.
An ability exists on the stack independently of its source. Removal of the source after that time won't affect the ability. Some abilities cause a source to do something rather than the ability. Any activated or triggered ability that references information about the source checks that information when the ability is put onto the stack. Otherwise, it will check that information when it resolves. If the source is no longer in the zone it's expected to be in, its last known information is used.
As a connoisseur of fun, interesting matches, I still to this day have not been able to craft that "perfect deck"; the deck that I can play and have fun over time, doesn't get boring, but simultaneously is fun to play against. I honestly don't think it exists. It's like a unicorn. A ninja unicorn.
Recross the paths is the closest thing I can find to a yellow brick road so far. Meh.
edit... Oh! You totally need to paint a pair of Lightning Greaves red for the ruby slippers. In fact, if you really wanted to go all the way with this, you could use the Set Editor to make custom art cards for the characters. That way Jareth or Ajani would actually be the art from the movie and greaves really could be the ruby slippers, etc.
Edited in a list of what I got so far, still need to figure out what other characters to reference and how to represent them in card for. Plus trying to figure out a way for the deck to function...Might have to look into the Return to Oz movie and the books for more creatures...
As far as the flying monkeys, I suppose that depends on whether you consider the type line important or the image. There are plenty of "Ape" creature types, obviously not considering the changelings, but none of those fly and it might be a bit of a stretch to call Avian Changeling a flying monkey, even if it's true in game.

maybe crumbling necropolis can be the wicked witches castle.
