Merlyn is very skilled in H2H in his own right, but against Achilles it would probably be best for him to use the vegetation as cover and try to tag him from a distance with arrows and throwing knives.

He could keep shooting and throwing projectiles until one hits Achilles' ankle, or the AoE from a trick arrow's explosion could do the job.

If Merlyn could discern Achilles' weakness, then he has a really good chance. I think I'm even inclined to say this is 50/50 just due to the fact that Achilles won't do well in this environment. But if Achilles gets close enough, he will dominant the match. Close fight.

Eh, I'm not so sure about dominating. Merlyn is well-versed in several martial arts himself. He could likely hold his own up-close for awhile before he realizes he's not hurting Achilles and opts to make a tactical retreat to the brushes.

Still, there are pretty good odds there won't be a H2H battle. Being a master of stealth and archery, Merlyn is a little more likely to start off the fight going to a spot at a high vantage point to seek out and snipe away at Achilles, then ziplining to another spot if Achilles sees him and uses one of his own throwing tools.

From there, a simple explosive arrow in the Greek hero's vicinity may at least come close to finishing the job. If Merlyn's arrow lands anywhere where near his target or if Achilles tries to deflect it, it would go off and the blast radius would engulf his body and at least singe his vulnerable ankle, if not outright burn it away or sever it. If Achilles survives the blast, he's at least likely going to be favoring that ankle, and it's something Merlyn will notice and then go for the kill.
