Player since 1995

As this card's name hints, it was intended to be a fixed version of Fastbond - one that gives you extra lands at the cost of the rest of your hand. Of course, if your hand is nothing but lands, you're now six or seven turns ahead, which puts you not only out of card disadvantage territory but well into Contract from Below-style advantage. That sounds like a pretty glib judgment, but of course for most of Magic's history there was no such thing as the Legacy land deck, until Life from the Loam, Vesuva, Dark Depths, and such made it so, and Manabond was thus a niche card until relatively recently. When you have to somehow both fill your deck with enough lands to take advantage of Manabond, and also include some cards to cast with so much mana, it's very much more hit and miss.
