When does it die?

pssr33: Attacks with Boros Reckoner

ShadowJ09: Blocks with Myr Galvanizer

-Damage goes on the stack

-Damages resolves

-Boros Reckoner's ability triggers targeting ShadowJ09's Palladium Myr and goes on stack

-Damage resolves

My question is when does Myr Galvanizer die during this whole process? Can I tap Palladium Myr and one Island to produce three mana, then tap Myr Reservoir and bring Myr Galvanizer back to my hand, BEFORE the Palladium Myr dies?

Damage doesn't go on the stack (anymore, at least; it used to before M10). At any rate:

They attack, you block, no other spells are played, combat damage happens simultaneously. Your blocking creature dies, Boros Reckoner 's ability triggers and goes on the stack, targeting your other Myr. Before that ability resolves, each player receives priority. When it passes to you, that is your last chance to use any abilities before the Reckoner's trigger deals damage to (and, subsequently, state-based effects kill) your other Myr.
