I'll recycle one of my old ideas: as Backlash poison isn't appropriate in Rescue, how about one in Roots?
8/5 Ability: Backlash: Poison 2, Min 9
Of late, Armand had been becoming increasingly difficult to restrain on the nights when his terrible lycanthropy was at it's worst, so Kiki, Nova, Gretchen and Ojibway put their heads together and decided enough was enough. Putting Armand at great risk, they contacted Van Richten and implored him to help them control Armand with his knowlede of belladona and silver magic, with the proviso they will be the 1st to alert him whenever the rather less desirable Russell is nearby
While poison does make sense generally for the Roots(most poisons can be organic or chemical),and it does even out as an alternative to Gork,he wouldnt be of really high use as a Roots card due to better four stars and better star count compatability.
Now if this were a 9/5(maybe 6,but i believe you were aiming for low damage because of the minimum) at 5 * ,it would be plausible,but as a 4 star...i dont know.
