    Use ahref and moz tools to check domain authority.

    I don’t see it as an issue with your SEO assuming that it passes the Copyscape test. However, you are opening up yourself to issues should the orginal writer figure out what you are doing (though admittedly highly unlikely). Also, if the content was so good, why is the site gone? I like what you are doing, however, I would say that they should be your base articles that you do complete re-writes or major edits in order to make the content that much better than the original.
    Will that process be as fast as just copy/paste? Of course not. But will be faster than starting off from scratch, particularly if you are new to the market.

    It's helpful to buy an expired domain. You just have to check the backlink profile of the domain carefully.
