Chandra's response? Climb into the payload compartment.
-->'''Chandra:''' "From close range, ''I'' could be the disruptor. When I fought Baral, before Nissa pulled me out of it, I was just about to complete a spell...Little thing. Big boom."

-->'''Dovin''':Chief Inspector Dhiren Baral, I charge you with one count of murder—possibly with more yet to be uncovered—and one count of attempted murder. I charge you with one count of extrajudicial incarceration—again, possibly with more to be revealed. Finally, I charge you with multiple counts of falsification of the public record, with the express intention of obscuring your crimes. You are a disgrace to your uniform, and a disquieting aberration to the ideals the Consulate espouses. Though I personally find your offenses...vexing in the extreme, the law requires that even you must be judged in court. Be aware that your every statement from this point forward shall be entered into the official record as evidence.

* [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/burn-2017-01-04 Burn]]: a small one for Dovin Baan. Despite being Tezzeret's [[Dragon]], the man still has morals, and gives us a particularly satifying moment when he arrests Baral for Kiran's murder, Chandra's - attempted - execution, Pia's imprisonment and falsifying the records to hide his crimes. Not only that, he proceeds to counter every single argument used by Baral and reveal how despicable the man is.

** Bonus point for Tezzeret having a slight OhCrap moment as he recognizes them and takes a step back. He may be strong, but he is also alone against an entire team of Planeswalkers, two of which have a personal beef against him (Jace and Liliana). Three if Chandra is added.

*** That's not what happened. Believe me or not, my parents owned the store where that happened (either Frontier Games or Games Without Frontiers, I'll ask and update this), and after the [[BuffySpeak card-teary-thing]] happened, the player on the receiving end tried to argue that since the card was no longer a 'card', in the sense of being a single object, and tried to make the play illegal. The judge ruled that since at least one part of the card followed the rule of flipping over at least once, the card itself counted, and thus all pieces of the card, by extension, counted, as they were part of the same object, and the play was legal. The offending player went on to win the game, and swapped out the Orb for an identical card before the next game. My parents were amused upon finding out that this had become an urban legend. It was pretty memorable that someone would try something like this, but [[Munchkin munchkins]] [[RulesLawyer being what they are]], they figured that a few other people would try it and it would become an accepted (if [[RealityEnsues increasingly rare]] tactic).

* [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/very-arena-2016-10-12 In This Very Arena]], Tezzeret has just pulled a CurbStompBattle on Pia Nalaar and is about to deal the finishing blow... only for his automaton to get reduced to a smoking pile of scrap by a firebolt. Cue Chandra jumping in the arena to rescue her dear old mom. Tezzeret gloats a bit and taunts her she versus him is hardly a fair fight. Chandra's response?
