Meh. What's the name of the crim event with Express on it that lets you look at something like the top 4 cards of your deck and pick one? From Honor & Profit most likely. It's late and I can't recall the name. But anyway that's a better card than this, and it hardly ever sees play.

Here it is, express delivery. Aside from a scenario where you really just want to index your deck or deliberately put stuff into the heap, Express Delivery is a better deck smoother than Rolodex, and same faction and influence.

Look at the top 4 cards of your stack and add 1 of those cards to your grip. Shuffle your stack. 
The clone was surprised to see the red-jacketed man. It was like looking in a mirror, only the mirror made him look...cool. Confident. Individual.

I don't know whether it might be fun to use this with Aesop and Oracle May

 

So Rolodex your deck, put 1 god card on top, then 3 cards that you can live without beneath it, (so redundant draws or recurseable cards)

 

Oracle May the good card

Next turn Aesop Rolodex to put the bad/recurseable 3 cards into archive

then Oracle may the remaining 2.

 

Or if they're all good just put them all in the order you want them and Oracle each one.

I thought a bit about this card and I really think it's underrated. What gamblingworld explained above is a nice combo. Where it might also be good is in MaxX decks. It allows you to mitigate the downside of your ID by gaining control over what is trashed and what is drawn.

 

But even without a specific combo, it's really not bad. Similar to Mr. Li, you can filter your deck by priority.

This is virtual, so Apex can bring his Rolodex!  

I'm curious if this works: could the runner blank Rolodex with Dr. Lovegood (Data & Destiny) then sell it to Aesop to gain 3 creds and NOT have to trash the top 3 cards of their stack?

I don't see a problem - it is the start of the Runner's turn, so any simultaneous effects can be arranged - first you trigger the doctor, Rolodex is now blank, than you trigger Pawnshop. No cards trashed, plus 3 credits.

 

However, keep in mind that the downside can also be an upside - Rolodex lets you ditch those 3 cards you don't need right now, or you need them in the heap for recursion because you are packing some Clone chips and Levy access. And who is known to love Levy access and is used to throwing random cards in the heap? Yes, you got it, MaxX can really optimize her next turn draw with the Rolodex and Inject, maybe. Yet, deckslots...
