I know two-player games are in vogue thanks to Isotropic, but every game I play with physical cards has three or four players. In those situations, Thief doubles or triples in effectiveness, and it can be a fun way to grab three Golds in one turn.
That said, Thief also has a good chance of helping your opponent by trashing his Copper for him. Also, if Thief is in the game, your opponent might grab one and steal all the shit you stole from him right back... making the whole exercise futile.
It's a gamble, and with most attacks, you don't really want a gamble.
Rating: 1/5, 2/5, or 3/5
It gets better the more opponents you have, but it never becomes great.
