Just checking on when Haunted One will effect my creatures exactly. If I go to sacrifice Taborax, Hope's Demise to Shadowheart, Dark Justiciar will it gain the +2/+0 and Undying before it actually dies? Since Shadowheart is being tapped and the creature is being sacrificed as part of the same cost I wasn't totally sure... Thanks in advance.

I understand the reasoning behind cards like Corrupted Conviction, but to me the bonus is not more than the cost. Drawing two off of one card, effectively going up 1 card in hand one time per include, is simply not enough to warrant a spot, even if it helps you proliferate. A card like Erebos, Bleak-Hearted lets you sacrifice your tokens and draw off of them, but does so more than once as a single card, and also could offer removal depending on the board state. Shadowheart, Dark Justiciar similarly has a higher ceiling because it's one card that can draw several more, and more than once, though I do understand these are not phyrexians and so somewhat less synergistic in that sense (but the instants/sorceries aren't phyrexian either, so I think the point is mute). I think cards like Ashnod's Altar and Krark-Clan Ironworks are incredibly synergistic here, as they provide the mana to activate your tokens while potentially also triggering the proliferate, I did not notice they were not in but would recommend them as well.

I haven't done too much research into pairings, but I do think a few had some potential (for me, at least) :

Folk Hero, Clan Crafter, Vhal, Candlekeep Researcher, Criminal Past, Dragon Cultist and Cloakwood Hermit all seem pretty cool, too.

I will admit, I do like CLB's background partner system a lot more than the dungeon mechanic that AFR gave us. It feels much more "DnD" to me. (as someone who's never played DnD)
