Mechanically speaking. I know Born Under a Bad Sign is amazing for them, but what are some other backgrounds that are mechanically good for an assassin?
For an Assassin, Auspicious Birth let you substitute your highest ability score (Dex) for Constitution to determine your initial hit points.

For an Executioner, Gritty Sergeant let you gain proficiency in a simple or military weapon of your choice (Rapier), and you gain a +1 bonus to initiative checks. 

These are some good ones i'd say

I'm actually fond of many from 'The Art of the Kill' article for skill maximization.
Dont executioners already have proficiency with rapier? According to character builder they do.

They're proficient with military one handed melee weapons. So, yes.
