Nice card. I would however like it better this way:
Whenever a creature an opponent controls attacks, if you're the defending player, put a 3/3 red and black Ogre creature token onto the battlefield unless that creature's controller pays 3 life.
WOOT! First post!
It's kind of sad to think that Red planeswalkers are, by nature, less likely to be around for a while.On the other hand, they're also the most likely to be able to take other planeswalkers in a fight, so maybe it evens out?
"Like many fantasy games, we often visit worlds or regions that have one single climate—desert-covered Rabia, frozen Terisiare, volcanic Rath."Are you sure you didn't mean Wildfire, Doug? Because uh... "volcanic" is hardly the term that springs first to mind when I think of Rath.
As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing.

The Stronghold was in a volcano, and almost the whole rest of the plane was just flowstone pumped out by the Stronghold. This technically means that it was all artificial, but being made of nothing but red "stone" certainly could be mistaken for volcanic.
