This is a lot for a common.

­Vraska's Contempt is a rare, so you could remove both the triggered and activated ability and still be at "a lot for a common".

Why "Whenever"? It's expected to happen only once, right?

There's a cycle of uncommon Planeswalkers in this set, so I felt it important that an answer exist at common.

The life loss attached is due to the kind of limited environment I'm trying to craft. I want to reward players for drafting grindier strategies, but I also don't want every game to end in a mill-out. Hence, a larger amount of incidental burn -- my goal is to create a tense "ticking clock" element for both players. The numbers on the damage might be excessive, but that's the kind of thing to adjust after testing, IMO.
