Doesn't! Means any expression of length one.

Such

myList //. {a, x_} :> {a, d}
---> {{a, d}, {c, d}}

myList //. {a, x_} :> {a, d} /; Length[x] === 0
---> {{a, d}, {c, d}}

myList //. {a, x_} /; Length[x] === 0 :> {a, d} 
---> {{a, d}, {c, d}}

myList //. {a, x_ /; Length[x] === 0} :> {a, d} 
---> {{a, d}, {c, d}}

myList //. {a, x_?(Length[#] === 0 &)} :> {a, d} 
---> {{a, d}, {c, d}}


Of course AtomQ[x] would be a better way to express Length[x] === 0.  But did you mean that?
