Now that this card has returned in SU, it’s worth taking another look at it. Celebrity Gift is an enormous operation-speed credit machine with a huge downside. You almost always reveal the entire 5 cards, netting 7 credits, or rather 3.5 credits per click. That’s an obscene rate.
However, in recent times, we all realized the painful truth: Don’t mind game people with this card. Revealing traps is bad. Revealing that you don’t have traps in hand is bad. Revealing that you do or don’t have agendas in hand is bad. You’re not mind gaming, you’re just giving the runner information. Any deck that plays this needs a way around its downside of giving the runner information, or you it can lose you the game. The clearest way to lose is to reveal an agenda flooded hand. The runner can fetch singles on HQ and slaughter you.
In other words, Jinteki glacier decks are great gift vehicles. It’s no secret that you’re putting an agenda into the remote at some point, and you usually run no weird combos or tricks that you must keep hidden. With SG’s new filtering tools, and also the jammy gameplay, it’s unlikely you privy the runner to a flooded HQ.
Overall, this is a very strong card. It’s basically two economy cards in one. However, its downside makes it much worse in trap decks.
