Untap all creatures you control. They gain hexproof and indestructible until end of turn. (They can't be the targets of spells or abilities your opponents control. Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them.)

Single Combat is a pretty poor boardwipe solution... you should avoid it as it lets your opponent get on the board first ... even if I understand the advantage (Rienne making your side in your hand when theirs is in the grave). Realm-Cloaked Giant is always better.
Really like the theme of the deck, all-in on Rienne's rebirth ability. Mask of Immolation is a pretty bad equipment though. Maybe Hero of Precinct One is a better engine for 1 card = 1 damage. Also Assure / Assemble is really good at keeping Rienne around and Join Shields if you really want to go all-gold cards deck :D
Beautiful deck. Brawl on !

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons
Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough
Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons
Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost
Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better
Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior
Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive
Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.
Tenacious Dead - Just bad
Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive
Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.
Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts
Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.
Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost
Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan
Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.
Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?
Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough
Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

For RNA : Biogenic Ooze Angelic Exaltation Unbreakable Formation Ministrant of Obligation What do you think? Or maybe change a lot and make it about Hero of Precinct One with Heroic Reinforcements Join Shields , etc.

For fun, I looked into what options you had if you removed the mono-Black requirement.
For High Alert to work, you would have to generate each iteration to go infinite. Priest of the Forgotten Gods provides you the , but you would need three copies of Pitiless Plunder to make up the remainder of the cost.
For Cacophodon to work, you would first need to give it indestructible. Your options would be as follows: Adamant Will , Angelic Guardian (though this might be risky since you would have to attack), Chance for Glory (which gives you an extra turn so its three mana casting cost does not detract from your play significantly), Dauntless Bodyguard , Join Shields , Make a Stand , Resolute Watchdog , Sheltering Light , Song of Freyalise , and Vivien Reid .
You would also need some form of damage outlet that triggers on entering the battlefield or creatures dying. Currently, only Judith, the Scourge Diva works in standard.
You could also use a card like Open the Graves or Desecrated Tomb to generate creatures, which you could sacrifice to Makeshift Munitions , but you will need a copy of Pitiless Plunder to make this work.

Seems to be a pretty well-rounded deck. Of course, I am not very familiar with the bantam interactions or value setups you have going, but may I recommend Dawn of Hope over something like Join Shields ? Heroic Intervention just seems better as well. It also seems light on removal.

Hey Happy774 - glad I could help inspire you to build something :) It can be pretty explosive with it's damage!
As for alternatives.... Teferi's Protection is a tough one to replace because it's so good and we're already running Heroic Intervention. Perhaps something like Ajani's Presence would work as you won't have loads of cats out that need saving at once, or even Rootborn Defenses (or the new card from RNA that's similar?) - Possibly Blinding Fog or the rather expensive to cast Join Shields? None of them are as good sadly....
A swap for Rhonas the Indomitable would really be looking for something that enables trample as that's why he's in the deck. A quick Scryfall search throws up some stuff like Elvish Herder or Creeperhulk or Mosstodon but I'm not sure how great they'd be (they're also not cats, but then neither is Rhonas....)
Hope that helps!
