An instant against my own instant.
Asked by darkmatter32x 5 years agoI have Pia and Kiran Nalaar and a Bonded Construct on the battlefield, for reasons unknown, I cast Smash to Smithereens on my own Bonded Construct , before Smash to Smithereens resolves, I sacrificed Bonded Construct using Pia and Kiran Nalaar therefore I won't take damage from Smash to Smithereens . Is this a legal move?
First, this is not an Instant against an Instant, it is an activated ability in response to an instant.

My opponent's argument is that both instant and abilities are coming from me. Making it illegal.

When you cast an Instant, you retain priority to cast another Instant or activate an ability. If you passed priority first, then yes, it would be illegal
