Cast Lion's Eye Diamond
Anounce that I'm casting Back of a Magic Card which costs 3 mana.
Sacrifice LED and use that mana to cast Back of Card from my hand.
Does this sequence work like this? I know you're supposed to be able to activate any mana abilities as a part of casting the spell. So can I use my LEDs for a card from hand?
No, you cannot do this. Read the Oracle text for the Diamond:
The current Oracle wording of LED says you can only activate it any time you could cast an instant. You can't cast instants while in the process of casting another spell. Ergo, you can't activate LED's mana ability after announcing the casting of a spell from your hand.
