Duh.. it's the bloodthirster.
Or do you mean best value-for points?
Even there bloodthirster is pretty good.. I think the Lord of Change is quite cool too, and the Great Unclean One is very economical and has a goodly ammount of wounds.
The Keeper of secrets strikes me as the most difficult to use, but I do like the model/atmosphere most.
So ultimately, they're all great.
yup, they are all great.

in order of cc power
1 = bloodthirster (obviously)
2 = keeper of secrets
3 = lord of change
4 = the great unclean one
in order of speed
1 = bloodthirster and lord of change
2 = keeper of secrets and great unclean one
in order of resiliance
1 = great unclean one
2 = bloodthirster
3 = the keeeper of secrets and lord of change
also remember that the great unclean one has nurgles rot, slannesh has the best minor phycic powers and that the the lord of change does not have to roll for phycic tests.
life is an icecream and you just have to lick it
How do you figure that a lord of change has less survivability and less combat power than a keeper of secrets.
The LoC has 12" movement, the KoS 6". While the KoS is slogging his way up the field the LoC is just hopping from cover to cover (if he's not already in CC). Beyond that their survivability stats are identical (save, toughness, etc)
The LoC has better weaponskill and initiative, the KoS only has better str and number of attacks.
An LoC is made for killing HQ's while a KoS is more geared towards troop killing.
I believe you should decide what army you want to play with and if this army is dedicated to a particular god then go with the greater daemon associated to it. For me the choice came naturally when I choose to have a nurgle based army.
If you wish to play vanilla chaos space marine or Undivided chaos space marines then go with the Bloodthirster, he's one of the best in town for many reason, his CC abilities and the fact that he flies being only 2 of them.
Personnaly I believe that the one for my army is the Great Unclean one. Resilience at its best he's an HQ buster and one unit is tied up in CC with him its only option is death
Well the whole initiative argument is pointeless because as stated on the GW online store about the Keeper of Secrets, " Any model in base to base contact with the Greater Daemon must halve their Weapon Skill and Initiative.".
