When it comes to tackling The Reaper it is best that you keep moving as his sword attack pattern almost identical to the attack style of BossIcon The Hanged Man's sword attacks while he is dashing around the room.

The best time to hit him is just after he re-catches his scythe from his boomerang attack. If he singles his scythe attack in the spinning motion around him it's best to stay far away om him at that point. If he is chasing around the room the best thing to do is stand still for one frame in front of him to trigger his swiping attack, then use a chain dash to get around him so he doesn't hit you. Be wary of the speed of his attacks, you can never stop moving.
