Mark my words: That ability will eventually be called Firebreathing. It will look like...

Firebreathing Red (Red: This creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.)

The cost parameter can change between cards too.

I have a Boros Beatdown deck with this in it. Every creature is red and white, so both bonuses apply at all times. Stick this on a Boros Swiftblade or Skyknight Legionnaire for incredible brutality. Or stick it on a Brion Stoutarm before the rules changed for lifelink. Every creature becomes a monster, and I love it.

Sure, you can say that Auras are card disadvantage and that you lose it when the creature dies, but a 3/4 Boros Swiftblade that can pump with extra mana is never going to die in combat, and if your opponent kills it, so what? You gained at least 6 life, and you almost certainly either took a chunk of their life or you took out one of their blockers (If is was a 1/1 chump, you do only gain 3, but that chump didn't block your other guys). You haven't lived until you gain 16 life in a single swing with a Swiftblade, then chuck him with Brion to kill another opponent in a multiplayer match, gaining another 8 life.... (see all)

Using an Aura like this one is begging to get 2-for-1ed, mostly by virtue of if they don't, whatever nasty doublestriking/trampling bastard you put it on is going to kill them. High Risk, Huge Reward right here.

Love how this curves right up from Battlegate Mimic and Boros Swiftblade

Absolute gold.. Just add a gloryscale, maybe a colossal might and/or double cleave and your really ready to smash things into little bits.

My friend calls the R/W +1/+0 ability "Shiny Firebreathing".

I call him a genius.

It seems pretty decent, but I wouldn't call it any better than that. Firebreathing, even red/white firebreathing, is a nice ability but has little synergy with Lifelink, while Lifelink is also pretty meh in most red/white decks I've seen. Even on a red/white creature, you're only on the upper end of the curve, not smashing it, which isn't great considering that it's hard to reliably get that without building for it.
