What are some good ways to use the Drug Dealer card? Playing the card seems counterintuitive to me (although I am not experienced). The 2015 world championship deck has 3 of them. I take it that the purpose is card draw for Faust?

Thanks

Note that the credit lost is not a cost.
Even if you have no credits, you can still draw a card.

Another point is that you draw at the start of your opponent's turn. This means that: 1) you don't discard down to your max hand size until the end of your next turn, 2) Having more cards in your hand (possibly above your max) will help protect you from the corp's damage

But basically yes, you eschew credits and draw cards for Faust.

The ideal scenario is that you spend all your money during your runs and not have any credits to lose to the Drug Dealers. In fact, Valencia's econ (Daily Casts, Scrubber, Bad Publicity) is off limits to the Drug Dealers. So it just ends up being free card draw to feed Faust.
