It is my turn and I have Bristling Hydra on the battlefield and Blossoming Defense in my hand. During the Beginning of Combat my opponent uses Deadlock Trap's ability on my Bristling Hydra. Can I then play Blossoming Defense or activate the Hydra's ability to fizzle the Deadlock Trap? And does it matter which I use, or would either one work?
