ENZU - It is, but it works well with lots of the background commanders. Creature type matters more than having a tap ability, honestly.

Vhal, Candlekeep Researcher cares about toughness, so I prefer Cultist of the Absolute, which adds up to 6 toughness.

I think Haunted One is insane. Probably best paired with Vhal, Candlekeep Researcher because she has a tap ability though the peasant W one also might wirk pretty well. Vhal opens up both aristocrats (undying) or untap/aggro stuff in humans and/or wizards both of which are extremely strong tribes.

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)
