The following cards without the ability word Landfall:

Courser of Kruphix; Nissa, Vastwood Seer; Primeval Bounty; Sporemound; Stone-Seeder Hierophant; Vinelasher Kudzu; Zendikar's Roil.



I can't give you an official answer, but a few educated guess.
  1. Ability words are like flavor text. They add no function and are italic. Its most practical use is to search for gather.
  2. Landfall is a Zendikar mechanic, so only cards from the two Zendikar blocks use the landfall ability word.
  3. It is not uncommon that there are similar mechanics in exist in keyworded and non-keyworded form in magic, compare Ghostflame Sliver to Forerunner of Slaughter for example.
