If lightning bolt targets a magic unit, and it rolls a cantrip during the save roll, does it get to cast the cantrip before dying?

Yes. A unit rolling to save against a Lightning Strike is making a save roll. The SAI section has this to say:
Quote:
• Save – Any time the army or unit is rolling for save results against damage. Some SAIs only apply during save rolls against a specific type of damage.
Also note that the SAI application section has this to say:
Quote:
SAIs have the same effect whether the unit with the SAI is rolled individually or as part of an army.
Since a Cantrip works during any non-maneuver roll, it has its normal effect. Also note, if a unit that rolls Cantrip were to Path to another terrain it would still die. This is talked about under Spells: Target:
Quote:
Individual units that are targeted by a spell will be affected by that spell even if they move to another army.
So it will die, but gets off a spell (or two) as it dies.
