Amusei, The Thief of Time

Lore: Amusei was a young but talented bandle thief, under the alias of black box. His successes went to his head and he undertook bolder and bolder missions. Soon his reputation spread and a mysterious client approached him with an incredibly risky job. A theft in the league of legends. The client offered a huge sum for one of the arcane devices used by Zilean, a champion in the league. The task was one Amusei could not resist, not merely for the gold but also for a chance to further prove his skill.

The job took a month to pull off and took everything from bribes to magic. Despite the challenge of stealing from one of the most accomplished mages in history, in one of the most secure and carefully observed locations, Amusei succeeded. His prize, a small timepiece on a golden chain, one of Zilean's many clocks and the only clue as to the thief was a small black box, his calling card, left behind. At the predetermined location, Amusei met with the client to trade the timepiece for his gold only to find himself caught in an ambush. To escape, the thief ditched the watch as a diversion. Amusei didnt really mind. It wasnt the first time a client betrayed him and he hadnt really done it for the money. The young yordle had pulled off the impossible and by tomorrow everyone would know "The Black Box" was the greatest thief in all Valorian. Amusei hit the bars and partied till he passed out for the next day.

The next day never came. When Amusei awoke he was back at the Institute of War, with Zilean's stolen timepiece once again in his possession. The most disturbing thing was... it was yesterday. It was the first of many repeated days. The thief would try to flee, would try to dispose of the watch, would destroy the watch, even tried getting people to take it from him but no matter what he did, his day would restart right back at the league with the time piece in possession and intact. In desperation Amusei contemplated going to Zilean and admitting his crime and begging the wizard to lift this curse.... but his pride wouldnt let him. If Amusei crawled to the champion mage, his great theft would end in failure, a first for the yordle. Instead the ever resourceful thief used his endless days to master the watch, learning its capabilities and unlocking its secrets. In time, or lack thereof, Amusei came to understand that he only repeated his days when he left the vicinity of Zilean, or rather the master clock the wizard always carried with him. This left only one option for the thieving rogue. He had to sign up as a champion in the Institute of War and find a way to steal Zilean's master clock. Amusei couldnt be happer about the situation for the task that lay before him was going to be the greatest theft of all time. The theft of time itself.

Interesting concept but the idea of resetting his gold with the ult and the ability to steal gold is cool so long as it doesnt actually drain the enemy's gold, and maybe have a debuff so gold can only be stolen from a summoner every x minutes.

gold theft isnt very strong. its one of his more useless abilities. considering u normally only get so many attacks in a fight against a champ depending how tanky they are before they die (like 10), even if they critted 100%(impossible except late game) and the champ sat there and did nothing and you maxed greed early(making u near useless) youd be stealing around 70 gold. net gain of 140 since the enemy is also losing the amount ur gaining. but golden moments where you can just wail on your enemy arent likely... unless hes got his first ult. Also with the ult 2 that resets his gold, he loses all the gold he got from attacking you in the last 7 seconds so that net gain is halved.
