|Multiple Card Types|
Only one card, Dryad Arbor from Future Sight, has been printed with this type combination. Dryad Arbor derives the activated ability “: Add ” from its Forest land type, and the characteristic-defining ability shown on its original printing has since been removed and replaced by a color indicator via errata. Because the Oracle reference contains no rules text, it is now a vanilla creature. The Mystery Booster test card Jasconian Isle later poked fun at the confusing concept.
Mark Rosewater considers the layout used for its From the Vault: Realms printing a mistake. Due to the rules complexity of objects that are both a creature and land in all zones, he doesn't expect new land creatures soon.
