Hunter is playable with a Healer but he needs to be very offensive. I like playing Hunter/Disc Priest personally.
My favorite partners are Rogues and Rets tough, Rogue because of the absurd amount of control and Ret because of their burst and defensive tools (bop, freedoms, offhealers etc.) If i knew any good Windwalker Monk i'd give it a shot too, they seem like a good in-between compromise of both Rogue and Ret.

Hunters can't really lock down their targets enough to effectively play with casters imo, your priest or lock will just end up tanking every games, double melee comps eating them alive.
DKs aren't very good either because they are incredibly squishy and relies a lot of dispels and neither of you can really lock down your targets effectively enough.
Feral used to be amazing and loved to play with them but since the Cyclone nerf i'm not sure, not a big fan of what they did with them in MoP tbh, it used to be such a well built spec in Cata.
