I see his back stab pop up in red when he attacks them from behind. Crits Pop up like that too. Would that passive abil be considered a crit if he lands it on the targets back?If not would you be able to get riftshards and crit it?
No, that's just the graphical display. It simply deals the value of Night Hound's agility as damage and opts to use red text to display the damage being done. Riftshards stacks with this ability and will indeed allow you to make some nasty critical hits.
The worst is Pounce+Backstab+Riftshards crit. In HoN, the bonus damage from Pounce is not applied separately from the attack, but instead added into the normal attack damage. This means instead of dealing 120 bonus damage, you deal 288 from Pounce, and that REALLY hurts.
