@TachiKC It says for each of those creatures, so yes, they must pay for every creature that attacks.

Putting this down early allows you to effectively ignore most creatures with power 1 if your opponent isn't playing white, and with some life gain, most creatures with power 2 as well. Saving a response like Day of Judgment for when the real threat hits the table.
And if your opponent spent life to attack it just makes it easier to clean up after a late Day.

I wouldn't want to wait to play this turn 5,
However, playing it turn 3 with the condition of 4 life...
I think that it's pretty solid, albeit against white, it'll be less effective.
4/5 seems right, for a nice softlock.

You can't force someone's creatures to attack with this - i.e. those cards that say X creature attacks Y if able. Well they are not able unless the controllers opts to pay the tax.

I like this card, it's going into my life gaining BW so I can sit behind it and Wall of Denial until I get my Felidar into play.

Sideboard against swarm decks like Zoo, token or White Weenie. I'd say {G}{W} to ramp out early, then sit back. If they have white mana available, then they're spending a fair amount just to attack with any sort of advancement in the game; if they don't, they'll lose a fair amount of life fairly quickly, which will add up in that sense. Green and White have some excellent choices for defense as well, and it'll go with control variants in any other color. All in all, it's a great control card; trade life early on in the game, then deny the opponent(s) mana to prevent the battlefield from moving out of your favor.

@ Recino
as listed in the FAQ
http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/703

Multiple Norn's Annexes controlled by the same player will each impose a cost to attack. Players choose how they pay each cost individually. For example, if a creature you control is attacking a player who controls two Norn's Annexes, you may pay for one cost and 2 life for the other.

I kind of prefer ghostly prison simply because its from kamigawa. but that 2 life cost could really start to add up. let them suicide swing for what could be the end game assault, cast a fog/safe passage, then gut shot them for the win.
