Because Wizards of the Coast use the most inclusive language available, they continue to use the term "creature land". Mark Rosewater mentioned he liked the term "landfolk" as a gender neutral term.
When a permanent is both a land and a creature it is officially referred as land creatures.
The earliest and most famous of the "manlands" is Mishra's Factory. Like the first of its kind all other manlands in this category have ": Add to your mana pool" and enter the battlefield untapped.
- Blinkmoth Nexus in Darksteel as an homage to Mishra's Factory.
- Dread Statuary in Worldwake.
- Inkmoth Nexus in Mirrodin Besieged.
- Mishra's Factory in Antiquities — It has 4 different illustrations by Kaja and Phil Foglio representing Spring, Summer, Fall (Autumn), and Winter. The Fall version was reprinted in 4th Edition.
- Mutavault in Morningtide and Magic 2014.
- Nantuko Monastery in Judgment.
- Stalking Stones in Tempest — Unusual as it becomes a creature permanently. It was reprinted in Mirrodin.
- Svogthos, the Restless Tomb in Ravnica: City of Guilds.
- Zoetic Cavern in Future Sight — A land that can be cast as a creature using its Morph ability.
Mono colored manlands
Urza's Legacy brought a cycle of manlands, each of which came into play tapped and produce mana of one color. It is this set when the nickname manlands was coined. When the cycle was reprinted in 10th Edition, the lands were given creature types when they used their abilities to turn into creatures. All of the lands turn into M colored creatures for M, where M is of the color of mana the land can produce. The size and abilities of the creatures vary.
Dual colored manlands
Worldwake is a set with a distinct theme of making lands into creatures. As such, it introduced a cycle of lands that enter the battlefield tapped and produce one mana of two different colors. The activation cost contains both colors and varies from card to card as does the size and abilities of the creature, though all of them are Elemental creatures of both colors the land can produce. The Worldwake cycle produces one mana of an allied pair.

There are also a variety of cards that can turn lands into creatures, either permanently or temporarily. However these are not lands and therefore are not considered manlands. Examples would be Living Lands from Alpha, the Genju Cycle from Betrayers of Kamigawa, the Zendikon Cycle of Worldwake, and numerous cards with Awaken from Battle for Zendikar.
