Yes. That's exactly how this works. However, if the top card is a land, you get to see the next card below it (and play it if it is a land) and then a third time. The way most people are describing putting it to use makes this card seem pretty lackluster.

HOWEVER- and this is a big however- it *does* break the color pie. A lot of white creatures love to be equipped and blue has ways of attacking without being blocked- and who doesn't want to landramp in white and blue? Also, as has been mentioned, this serves as a way of getting out lands early and then filtering them from draw in the late game, which means that this would fall well on a cumulative mana curve.

Goblin Gavaleer turns this into a more broken Bonesplitter.

This is quite good with Ornithopter and Signal Pest. And while I haven't tried this one yet, it seems horrifingly good with a Cloudpost/Glimmerpost deck. Maybe all the aformentioned, Lightningbolt + Galvanic Blast, & a group of Artisan Of Kozilek or Kuldotha Flamefiend.

Put this, preferably multiple copies, on a Bloodghast. Serves for great mana ramp in a black deck.

Nice synergy with Sylvan Library.

Somehow this seems flavorful with Ornithopter. Kind of like a reconnaissance plane.

notice the lack of the word "basic" before the word "land." You may commence rejoicing.

This is a great card that effectively allows you to mine through your deck. Combos incredibly well with the landfall mechanic in Zendikar.

and if you have this and adventuring gear on the same creature then you can set up some crazy boosting on said creature.

Have plenty of land, but never have to draw them. Oh, and its my favorite art in the last year, easy.

2 mana to cast and equip. If it activates once you've gotten your card cost back and if the opponent destroys it you've gotten your card and cost back. Speeds up mana plus gets it out of the way so you can draw other cards. Subtle but may be more responsible for the wins I got in pre-release than any other single card.
