I assume magic is taking the place of the various gadgets in this case. I guess though, if you are going for the laid-back idea, hand-off combat idea, first why Spellwarp Sniper? I can't think of a whole lot of spells you would benefit from turning into rays, and the class strikes me as, thematically at least, much more Special Ops Sniper, and much less James Bond.
Also I would have to ask what purpose the Spellthief level is playing. Unless you take the feat from Complete Scoundrel (which admittedly you COULD do). Thematically it could make sense, but it would make just as much sense to take a level of rogue instead, and probably with a better result mechanically speaking.
lol...you should really look at the sheet then, you'd see that I did take that feat, and the reasoning behind it is that I conserve a caster level with it, which can be VERY important
Fireball and Lightning Bolts that don't allow reflex saves are...kinda awesome, that's the reasoning behind SWS...not to mention some other nastiness like Free Empower on a spell once a day...NOT to mention you get extra "sneak attack" damage with rays...SWS is pretty sick, I think you're just looking at the wrong class features
you're taking the name of the class too literally, look at what it can do and not what it's named
Yes, if you are looking at it in terms of mechanical effects, and how pretty they are. I'm just saying, if you are going for a James Bond style character, that class isn't getting you any closer to it. (Now if you were going a more Solid Snake with magic type character, that would be understandable.)
I was looking at it in terms of what it can do. I just don't happen to see how the class features get you any closer to your thematic objective. I mean all things being said, you have a pretty awesome build herein general, and if you aren't caring so much about this thematic aspect, then by all means ignore my analysis here, since it will not likely be relevant. But if not, well...
