Combo of the Day
Fastbond Buy + Hallow Buy
The limitation is that you have to play them both on the same turn, targetting Fastbond Buy with the Hallow Buy while it's on the stack. Once it comes into play you'll gain one life per land instead of taking 1 damage until end of turn. See rule 419.8a which ends with
