The Vis levels seem possibly underwhelming, in that having to take a whole action to do it seems likely to be frustrating. Perhaps if the superior was a free untap, rather than the optional press?

Not sure if it should be stackable, though I don't have a strong opinion on that.

The Vis version is basically crappier Ablative Skin (since you have to use all the prevent at once). Overall, I think this would be better as an action requiring tremere or !tremere with this text.
+1 stealth action.
'Add two blood from the blood bank to a gargoyle enslaved to the acting vampire's clan in your inactive region, or to a ready gargoyle you control enslaved to the acting vampires clan.'

Making it just a Tremere/!Tremere card, prompted this idea:
+1 stealth action
Put this card on a Gargoyle enslaved to this acting vampire's clan and move two blood counters to that Gargoyle from the blood bank; that Gargoyle may be in your uncontrolled region. The attached Gargoyle may burn this card in combat to prevent up to 3 damage.
A Gargoyle may have only one Shape the Stone including, if the Gargoyle is in the uncontrolled region, any copies that would otherwise be considered out of play.

That last sentence could probably be tightened up a bit, but you get the point, I hope - slightly slower acceleration/blood gain, but with the flavour of the damage prevention still worked in.

I don't like the fact that the vis/VIS version is basically a card that requires both Visceratika and being played by Gargoyle, which prevents any other vampire (mainly !Tremere) from playing it...
