This is marked out as different compared to the other outlanders by being an artifact creature; with protection from red artifact destruction and burn, that's more of an advantage than a disadvantage.

"Is there an actual Red stone its flavor text is referencing in story? Or is it a vague reference to the Philosophers Stone?"

Sangrite

see:
Sangrite Surge
Sangrite Backlash
Charnelhoard Wurm
Maniacal Rage

Skirk Shaman's worst nightmare. (Well, Wall of Spears was always good for that, and now we have Haunted Guardian...)

For the benefit of people who wander here in the future, long after Conflux is forgotten:

This card was part of a cycle of gold common creatures, all of which had protection from their shared enemy color:

Goblin Outlander - BlackRed (Jund Goblin Scout, traveled to RedGreenWhite Naya)
Nacatl Outlander - RedGreen (Naya Cat Scout, traveled to GreenWhiteBlue Bant)
Valeron Outlander - GreenWhite (Bant Human Scout, traveled to WhiteBlueBlack Esper)
Vedalken Outlander - WhiteBlue (Esper Vedalken Scout, traveled to BlueBlackRed Grixis)*
Zombie Outlander - BlueBlack (Zombie Scout, traveled to BlackRedGreen Jund)

*This one is unique as it is an artifact creature.

I am basing this off of the background, the location, and flavor text of each - the "meaty", bony ground seems to point to Grixis. Note that they always have protection from one of the secondary colors of their destination shard.

Sangrite can be used to produce etherium, which is the magical alloy that many Esperites have fused onto their bodies (eg. Tezzeret's arm) - and the reason they are artifact creatures. Unfortunately, etherium was starting to run short on Esper, but since they had no sangrite they couldn't make more of it. Too bad this guy's looking for it on Grixis, because sangrite was only found on Jund.

4/5 in limited, 3/5 in constructed mainboard, 5/5 in a constructed sideboard.

Wizards definitely put a premium on artifacts in Alara, kind of like they should have in Mirrodin.

Redstone? What, did Esper cross with Minecraft or something?

A Standard Creature as a 2/2 for 2 Mana. Protection from red is an excellent bonus. Definitely a side-board card.
