why wouldn't you just return the Ghitu Encampment to your hand as part of the cost of Moonbow Illusionist?

Cards like Moonbow Illusionist, Grixis Illusionist, Spreading Seas and Blood Moon all will have the same result. Turning a land into a basic land type makes it lose all of its abilities and land types it might have already had, but it won't stop it from being a creature. When you set a land's subtype, it loses the abilities generated by its rules text, but not abilities granted by other effects. In this case, the Encampment will lose its printed ability (i.e. the ability to become a creature,) but not the abilities that it gave itself when you activated its animation ability - namely, First Strike. In every case, the Fatal Push will still kill it.

So, let's say I have a Ghitu Encampment in play. I animate it. An opponent attempts to Fatal Push it. I respond by activating an Moonbow Illusionist trying to turn the Ghitu Encampment into a Mountain.

What happens?

Does Fatal Push kill a red 2/1 Land Creature - Mountain Warrior? Or, does the Ghitu Encampment become a nonbasic Mountain with no other types and abilities and Fatal Push does nothing?

Also, the rules section needs a good way to search it.
