Receptionist 1 is a pretty good card with solid stats, and an ability that reduced the cost of a random card in your hand by 2G whenever it gets damaged. Keep in mind that the effect triggers every time it takes damage, no matter how much damage it took. It can also affect cards in your hand that are 0-1G, making the effect be wasted in those cases.
Because of this, it's useful to give it Taunt with Protection (in Patience) or Glad Dummy (in general), as then it has to be targeted, which can end up with your cards droping in cost, especially in Kindness Decks, as you can keep it healed up. You can top it off by using Faun or Toriel, as that most likely makes it need more attacks to be killed.
- Before Beta 9.1, with the release of Receptionist 2, this card was just known as Receptionist.
