I attacked with 4/4 creature with first strike and life link.
My hubby blocked with his only card, a 2/2 with “when this creature is dealt damage, it deals 5 damage to target creature an opponent controls”. He chose to deal that damage to my attacking creature.
Can I then play an instant to give my creature +2/+2, so his damage does not kill my creature? (My attacking creature is 4/4).
