Think of it this way: How would you handle the situation if the RCI told the Changeling to "show himself" without the effects of the venom? You'd probably make it an opposed roll, one that is quite hard for the RCI. The venom just makes that roll easier. Invoking for effect, as you said, allows you to make a declaration which is a non-conflict action (YS 192)

Think FATE. If it is a maneuver, then you end up with an aspect on your target, which you can compel or tag for an advantage on any subsequent roll. If it is an attack, then it grinds away at one of the stress tracks (probably composure here) and you have to force consequences or take your target out for any effect to have actually occurred. Invoking for effect (YS 99) is used for declaring facts about the world, not affecting actions or aspects of another character.

Now hen the RCI was trying to place Susceptible to Suggestion on the changeling, it was Fists vs. Dodge. But it probably doesn't help when the RCI is trying to hit the Changeling, and the Invisible on him is making it even harder, so it would make sense for the RCI to use the first aspect towards another maneuver that would improve his chances on landing a solid hit. This time it is probably Presence vs. Resolve though, so of course everybody rolls again.

Just a side note, Battlegrounds 1.7 and below does not work on OSX Lion, developers say they intend to "go native" in 2.0, but don't say when.
