I created this deck before the FDB expansion dropped, but it always was lacking something. With the new cards in FDB this deck performs a lot better, substituting Rahjinnis for Blood Messengers. Fight for tempo, but know when to go or setup a Pilfer push. Otherwise, hold back from hitting face unless you want to trigger pilfers.

This deck has an inherent weakness against Control Mage or decks with mass removal as is all Pilfer decks but the weakness is reduced somewhat with the many 4+ hp minions. Against other decks, you can bait out their early removals with your cheap pilfers than bust out the Crook(ed)+Saint(s) combo for tempo. If your Crooks survive keep flooding the board and make the push. With the FDB, BEWARE Unstoppable rage by placing your units in seperate lanes.

Combos:
1. Torval Crook into Golden Saint next turn, hence the name. Crooks are hard to kill and the turn they come in you can usually summon something else that requires removal like a Messenger or Descendant of Alkosh.
2. Torval Crook+Skooma Racketeer removes things and usually the Crook survives, and you get the bonus if Underboss is in play.
3. Dune Smuggler+Grand Ball means you can hit face and shield all your troops in the Shadow lane who were in the field lane and mess your opponent's combat math. The mass +1/+1 doesn't hurt too.
4. Riverhold Excort is usually the best guard and can snowball with the Smuggler in play, treat him with respect. He can be removed with Executes, but usually they spend their Executes on your pilfer threats.
5. Obviously Master of Thieves+Thieves Den for the One Turn Kill™. Both these cards combos with the other cards.

Update: Added 3x Cloudrest replacing Haafingers for a lot of tempo gains and allowing Skooma Underboss to work more often.
