Alphys originally costed 5G and would reduce the cost of any Amalgamate to 3G.
Beta 4.3 nerfed that to dropping the cost BY 3G in order to prevent more expensive cards such as Everyman or Endogeny being drawn for too cheap a cost. This, in turn, made some of the cheaper Amalgamates such as Memory Head or Snowdrake's Mom cost less than 3G.
Beta 6.5 reworked Alphys so that she herself would cost 1G less (4G), but her Amalgamate 1G more (so 2G less than normal). This was done to nerf Alphys for Integrity users to balance it out, as they would get 1G back from a 5G monster.
But with the Integrity rework of Beta 6.8, Alphys returned to being a 5G card in Beta 7.1. However, her Amalgamate still only costs 2G less.
