What choices are good besides account siphon anyways?

Just about every run event other than Dirty Laundry in certain situations.
To answer my own question surge, emergency shutdown, satellite uplink, forged activation order, and infiltration. I was more commenting on the fact that account siphon is so good no one mentions using this card on anything besides it.

You'll probably choose ac over vamp and I don't think exploratory romp or indexing are good choices but other than that I agree.

I was assuming nobody would run Exlporatory Romp anyway :P
Also, Indexing can be a decent choice sometimes. I wouldn't use it on Infiltration though, but that might be because I don't run any Infiltration at all.
I've been running it with my event-heavy Criminal and its great! Once you've got a bunch of events used, the Corp gets very nervous - its really inhibits their decision making when they know you can pull out Account Siphon, Inside Job, Inflitration, Emergency Shutdown or a bunch of other stuff for a couple of clicks. At a pinch its a free card to Aesop's or use on a Hedge Fund if you need that little bit of cash to make a final run or whatever.

Don't forget click ratios.

 

The in the examples of Diesel and Modded

 

1 click to draw, one click to play - draw 3 cards

vs

1 click to  draw, 1 click to draw, 1 click to draw

 

Diesel nets you 1 card, just as Modded nest you 1 credit (though you also get the install as well)

 

stacking those costs on top of same again with 'Same Old Thing' makes it not worth it in such cases.

 

Even in the case of Quality Time; where you need to get, if you don't already have, 3 credits... they were or will be clicked for in either case.

 

Draw and play with a normal card becomes

 

draw and install plus 2 clicks with Same Old Thing
