Looking for a good deck for transitioning to traditional characters

Hey everyone, I'm going on a trip to Taiwan in a month or so and figure I need to take a crash course on traditional characters. I've tried brushing up on them by creating a test that just goes through the HSK flashcard set with a different scorefile, but forcing the traditional character-set. Sadly I found this to be a somewhat frustrating approach to take because there are a ton of characters that are shared between the two character-sets and I'd like to just focus on the ones that are different.

Does anyone know of a deck that just has the mappings between traditional and simplified characters that also describes which definitions are shared between the characters and which ones aren't (for the case of multiple traditional characters mapping to a single simplified one)? Any deck along those lines that just tests characters that differ would be extremely helpful.

Thanks everyone, and apologies if something like this has already been posted. I looked but couldn't find anything.
Well I ran across this post that has a deck with a list of the most common characters. I went through and filtered out the ones where the simplified characters and traditional ones are the same and ended up with the attached file. Hopefully this helps out other users too!

Edit: fixed file

One issue that I just noticed is that there doesn't seem to be any way to show only the traditional character on one side and then both when flipped. Is there any way to do this, or perhaps any acceptable work-arounds?

Yes, in “card selection” you can set the “system” to “fixed” in which case it’ll sort by date created.
