A sifter is a card that draws and discards, in either order, so as to cycle through your deck to get to more desirable cards. Many of these are non-terminal Actions such as WarehouseWarehouse.jpg, which allow you to draw cards and then force you to discard some as well. Sifters can increase or decrease handsize, depending on what additional role they take, if any.

The term "sifter" can also apply to certain deck inspectors that selectively discard cards from the top of your deck.

A related class of cards are diggers, which "dig" through your deck for cards meeting some description and discard those that don't. Sifters differ from those by allowing you to choose which individual cards to discard.
