Ordeal of Nylea
Enchantment — Aura
Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea.
When you sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea, search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Ulvenwald Tracker can be good to kill opposing creatures.

I haven't seen much of Atraxa honestly. She's a newer addition and the one game I've seen her she got huge but she was perma-tapped by Tamiyo and I got wrongly focused by the table while the Tamiyo player assembled his combo.
I think I'm going to drop Ordeal of Nylea for SoTaJ. Opinions?

Creatures to cut:
Merfolk Looter - doesnt give overall card advantage for 2 mana + only once each turn
Seafloor Oracle - not that many merfolk attacking
Merfolk Branchwalker - doesnt drop a land and only draws if land revealed
Deep-Sea Kraken - only a 6/6 for either 10 mana or a long delay that can be prepared for
Merfolk Mistbinder - not enough merfolk to make the +1/+1 impactful
Inkwell Leviathan - 9 mana for a beatstick, no real extra effects but several keywords
Cursecatcher - 1 drop potential counter, but only costs 1 to stop it
Reef Worm - useful blocker but requires dying to be highly useful - could be better to use for 3 mana
Merfolk Trickster - can stop ability based creature going off in a turn, but only once till end of turn - situationally useful
instants to cut:
Grapple with the Past - not much other non-land graveyard interaction so limiting
debate on most the counterspells - better ones in slot but depends on price/availability
enchantments to cut:
The Mending of Dominaria - not enough sacking of lands to make value, can lose you other cards
Curse of Verbosity - helps opponents too, may be better in slot but still potentially decent card draw
Ordeal of Nylea - 3 turns to activate so slow but gives double land drop
maybe sorceries to cut:
Beneath the Sands - better in slot for 3 mana maybe
Karn's Temporal Sundering - again, better extra turns in slot - depends on price/availability

Enduring Scalelord was in the deck to start with but over time it just became one of the cards to be cut. I'm not a fan of infinite combos myself. They are also rare in my playgroup. There are a couple people who have a deck that has one or more infinite combos but they play those decks to just mix things up on occasion.
I have few basic lands to fetch with Ordeal of Nylea This deck is also more about draw than search or fetch.

I've been thinking. With all the graft, is Enduring Scalelord not a good addition? I used to do some clone and infinite counters shenanigans until I decided to not play infinites no more.
Also any thoughts on Ordeal of Nylea ? Every Reyhan should run this.
Lastly I'm just gonna mention that I'm missing allot of fatties. Think of Realm Seekers , Prime Speaker Zegana , Selfless Squire nearly always hits my board with lethal power or perhaps Endless One . Or even Increasing Savagery .

Hey, saw your forum topic asking if any recent cards are worth an upgrade in any of your decks. Out of all your decks this one in my opinion has the most potential for upgrades. Even just with cards that are already in Magic, not ones that were in recent sets. You seem serious about upgrading this deck therefore most of my suggestions won't be budget cards.
Cards in recent sets to consider:
Cards that can be potential upgrades for cards here:
- Diabolic Intent or Vampiric Tutor > Diabolic Tutor
- Maelstrom Pulse > Hero's Downfall or Putrefy
- Trophy > Abrupt Decay or Putrefy
- Reanimate or Animate Dead > Vigor Mortis
- Sylvan Library > Ordeal of Nylea
- Berserk > Soul's Might
- Scavenging Ooze > Obsessive Skinner
- Night's Whisper > Harmonize
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir > Vastwood Hydra
- Rishkar, Peema Renegade > Fungal Behemoth
- Pir > Varolz, the Scar-Striped
- Unspeakable Symbol > Death's Presence
- Umezawa's Jitte > Blessings of Nature
- Forum > Evolving Wilds
- Greater Good > Curse of Predation
Good luck with your deck.

If your asking if your opponent could tap down the Thriving Rhino to prevent it from attacking, the answer is that it depends on when they're trying to tap it.
Combat is broken up into several steps. It starts with the Beginning of Combat step, which is when any "at the beginning of combat" abilities will trigger. It's also a chance to play instants before attackers are declared, but after the active player's main phase. This is where your opponent would want to use a tap spell to tap any creatures before they can attack.
After this is the Declare Attackers step, which is when you actually declare attackers, and when Thriving Rhino and Ordeal of Nylea both trigger if you declare it as an attacker. You get to declare attackers before anyone gets priority to cast spells or activate abilities, so at this point it's too late to tap a creature to prevent it from attacking.
If your opponent wanted to prevent Thriving Rhino from attacking, he should have done it before attackers were declared, and before the two "when this creature attacks" triggers were triggered. If that was his intent, then those actions should have been rewound to the Beginning of Combat step so he could attack, meaning your energy was unspent and your Ordeal of Nylea still attached to the Rhino. If he allowed them to trigger and resolve, and had no issue with that, then the Rhino is already declared as an attacker, and tapping it won't prevent it from continuing with the attack.
