The land never hit zero. You removed the counters and changed its condition. It has to recieve lethal damage in according to the rules to die. Lands only die from lethal damage. In this case there never was any damage. But if you would have blocked it first, doing damage and then removed the counters, then it would have received lethal damage. The ruling comes from a 2020 site: TappedOut.net

Your turn

Nope, any creature, and that is a creature (and a land), that has a toughness of zero or less will go to the graveyard, on state based effects. There is no such thing a changing it "condition". Lands are not special, and lethal damage isn't necessary for any creature to go to the graveyard based on toughness.
Sorry dude, but that's the rules, all creatures follow the rules for creatures, no matter what other types they may be.

BTW - TappedOut.net is not official rulings for MTG, it's just posters opinions.

I took my turn.
