      Why he dont have: Spell Thief: The obvious use it to steal spells from enemy spellcasters, but in a game when you might go several levels without seeing a spellcaster, a better option is to "steal" spells from your party's other spellcasters. Have them cast a useful low-level spell on you, like a buff spell or polymorph, and cast it on your own without needing to consume other spellcasters precious spell slots.
      Because it s a power of ARCANE TRICKSTER

        Be aware that taking Arcane Trickster currently (as of the Early Access release) doesn't automatically give you the Mage Hand cantrip, like in the 5E rules which say Mage Hand plus 2 additional cantrips. Here you just get a selection of two cantrips. If you do not select Mage Hand as one of those, you wont be able to use the subclass feature associated with it.
