Aether Vial.

EDIT: @elhajjaj: I'm afraid I have absolutely no idea what you meant. According to the rules (sorry for being that guy who quotes the rules):

300.2. Some objects have more than one card type (for example, an artifact creature). Such objects combine the aspects of each of those card types, and are subject to spells and abilities that affect either or all of those card types.

So despite not being able to cast Dryad Arbor, both of the cards you mentioned still bring it into play because it's a creature.

This could be copied and turn into a: Legendary Artifact Enchantment Creature Nonbasic Forest Mountain Plains Swamp Island Saproling Treefolk Elf Elemental Horror Mutant Angel Vampire Nightmare Zombie Demon Sliver Samurai Coward Warrior Spirit Beast Wall Shade Dragon Ninja Dryad of any/all colors. Take that Mutavault!

Life and Limb makes this a saproling.
Elvish Branchbender makes it a treefolk.
Master Biomancer makes it a mutant.
Ambush Commander makes it an elf.
Woodwraith Corrupter makes it black/green and an elemental horror.
Angelic Armaments, Angelic Destiny or Call to Serve makes it an angel.
Oni Possession makes this a demon spirit.
Mephidross Vampire (and quite a few other things like Captivating Vampire or Olivia Vol... (see all)

Some thoughts:

Becomes a Forest Dryad Saproling with Life and Limb.

Becomes an indestructible 1/1 with Terra Eternal.

Playable from the grave with Crucible of Worlds.

Contributes to Forestlove with Dungrove Elder and similar "equal to the number of Forests/lands you control" cards.

It sucks that it doesn't count as a spell. It would be an easy and thematically relevant second creature spell to get all of your Vengevines back.

@Ideatog: It's even worse than that. I've seen comments on things like Llanowar Elves asking "Where do I get the extra forest this gives me from? Am I supposed to search one up from my deck?".

Interesting concept... combos with fetch lands for a surprise block

@infinight: It's called a color indicator. Transguild Courier has one too. Wonder how it'll look when reprinted.

hahaha, utopia sprawl and freed from the real.

Such a beautiful card when it's rendered so simple like this.

Also, apparently, Dryads like to watch couples make out in the woods.

Can be a useful card in a Mirrorweave deck. Either turns into something great, or gets you large amounts of extra mana, while cutting your opponent's army down to 1/1s.

I'm far too afraid of mass removal to ever run this card.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
