This card is so much worse than existing cards. They could have moved Hallucination or Swashburgler to the Classic set instead of creating this trash.
Or release a new 1/1 without the pirate tag or made this new one a 0 mana card for help combo cards.
The new cards are clearly intended to be super safe (would be embarrassing to even be considering hall of fame-ing hall of fame replacement cards). But a standard burgle rogue deck would still consider this due to limited options, so it is certainly not a complete waste of a card.
Voted very good because I think Tess Rogue and Spectral Cutlass is JUST short of being very good. This is also another cheap spell to enable combos, AND it's a playable card that doesn't require a valid target.

Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.
Except for the fact that Swashburglar rotated out at the start of the year and Hallucination is rotating in about 5 months. Pilfer will stay in classic forever. or until they decide it's a problematic card that is.
For Wild players then yeah it's hot garbage, but then again nobody not even Blizzard gives two shits about Wild.
