So I'm new to this game and looking to improve my score. The most common advice is to draw more cards. My question is how? There's only a few common cards that allow you to produce cards and if they do come up, you hope no one takes it before you. As for faction cards, some have more opportunities than others but still, there's a chance they're at the bottom. Do you just make deals if you see cards with card deals come up? I just basically find it difficult to have opportunities to draw cards.

I keep forgetting that way! I guess that's the best use for people? (instead of getting resources). I keep using them to get resources more than cards.

Yeah, usually the purpose of workers is to draw cards, unless you really need them for a resource to build a crucial card.
Note that I usually am not able to draw all my faction cards, contrary to most expert people here. So I'm with you in the camp of people that wonder how to draw (even) more cards

As already stated (I) rather use workers for cards. All factions have some kind of way to get cards through deals (though you have to be VERY careful as to which card you make a deal with in order to not destroy a strong faction combo, especially as Romans). Otherwise get many production buildings that produce workers and buildings like watchtower - or raze a watchtower of another player

If in question I'd almost always prefer a card that gives me workers over one that gives me sth else to build as well as to choose in the drafting phase, simply because having many cards is (potentially) just that more powerful than having many resources. Most of the games I've won were simply because I had 30+ cards left in my hand when other players started to run out of cards and workers on turn five. (Sadly enough this can turn a game into Imperial Solitaire if you're the only one left with actions to perform...)
