It's indeed a really strange misprint: a meekstone from antiquities on a island from unlimited, and a citanul druid on a pearled unicorn (?)... miscuted!

They were probably setup sheets for the printing (error checking, color matching, etc.).  Remember the chinese 5th edition uncommon sheets that were posted recently, with the animals on the back?

Printers never waste anything, so sample sheets from one setup were probably flipped over to help set up printing of another series.  The only problem is that one of these sheets (probably later used as protection on the bottom of a stack of regular production sheets) actually got processed through the cutters, and got turned into cards.   These cards might have gotten packaged, or might have been pocketed by a worker to show off what was being produced (showing friends a sample).  In either event, most of these types of cards would get thrown out, but in this case someone decided to hang on to them.
Where have all the Magic sticker sets gone?

On the Weakstone/Island one, does anyone know which card the faint staff is from?  I had even missed seeing that the first time I looked at the card and had just picked out the Weakstone and Island.

plus, did I see this wrong, or are all of these cards half cards?  It looks like only half the card before they get glued
I can't believe I ate the whole thing

Hi.
Very Good point,but let me add few observations before.
The back of the 2 Cards are Upside down.While the Natural Selection is almost NM+.The Chaos Orb is "damaged"  :D by few things:
-Glue.
-Extra paper from another card(What appears as white on the Scan),as there's still few letters on it.
So,the faint is from the third card who used to be glued on top of the Island and weakstone,but Which one  ???
I will make a 600 DPI to check for more clues.

Hi Keith  :)
I knew that a "Connaisseur" like you,will enjoy them  ;)
I'm wondering if they should be called technically Misprints or Test Prints Misprints or another name  ???
