** In his own way, Dovin Baan, LawfulNeutral that he is, gives his own moment in this chapter, dressing down Baral and highlighting how, no, the punishment he dealt out to the Nalaar family did ''not'' fit the crime at all, and in fact was extremely excessive and illegal. Finally, it seems that justice is being given to the Nalaars, and by a man of the ''Consulate'' at that.

* In a stark contrast to heaviness and uncertainty of the end of Eldritch Moon, [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/renewal-2017-02-01 Renewal]] ends Kaladesh on a remarkably positive, if TearJerker filled, note. To hit a few high points:
** Pia is instated as a member of the Consulate in an attempt to root out the corruption and better serve the citizens of Kaladesh.
** Pia and Chandra face Baral once more to let him know that his mage hunts are over, and that he will be left to rot in his cell rather than being given the glory of a public execution.
** Ajani, still grappling with his grief over Elspeth's death, joins the Gatewatch.
** Yahenni gets their penultimate party, and faces their death with poise and dignity. And Oviya gets a new car out of the deal.
** Nissa has a touching moment with Yahenni when she reveals to them the nature of the multiverse.
** Pia and Chandra make up for some bonding time, and Pia gives Chandra the freedom to be true to herself as a Planeswalker, declining for Chandra, the free spirit she is, to remain on Kaladesh.
** Chandra and Nissa grow closer, possibly hinting at the potential of a relationship.
** While teaching Chandra a meditation, Nissa reaches the reborn spirit of Yahenni, showing that they may have died, but they are certainly not gone, and takes they time to greet the new life to the world like a loving mother.

* Amidst the emotional rollercoaster that is [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/burn-2017-01-04 Burn]], there are some particularly heartwarming moments. For starters, Gideon's support of Chandra as she suffers from an emotional turmoil, comforting her as she sees herself as a FailureHero who, in her own words, "always screws up", and even gives her a hug when she (clumsily) asks him for one. Then there's Nissa backing Chandra during her fight against Baral and later calming her down as she nearly performs a [[TakingYouWithMe suicide attack]] to take him down. Finally, Gideon - again - lets her have some time alone with her mother, who has been busy planning and commanding the rebellions and couldn't afford to spend time with her.

--> ''Nashi put his arms around the giant, but couldn't reach even halfway. "It's all right to let it out," he said. "We all got you."
Ajani's shoulders bent and shuddered. He covered his eyes with one hand.
The rain began to fall.
The children sat with him, around him, a forest of hands on his shoulders and arms and back and knees. Saying nothing. Just breathing.

* In ''[[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/release-2016-10-05 Release]]'', Ajani finds [[spoiler: Chandra, Nissa and Oviya Pashiri being gassed to death]] and leaps at a guard, swinging his axe at the man's throat in UnstoppableRage. But then he sees the guard's life with his empathetic abilities and, ''while in the middle of the attack and desperate to save his friends'', he alters the swing's angle so that it lands a non-lethal blow on the man's chestplate instead. Because the guard isn't a Planeswalker or a villain, he's just a man with a family.

** From the same story, while Ajani is visiting Tamiyo on Kamigawa, he tells Elspeth's story to the children Tamiyo looks after, confessing that he feels that he should have died instead of Elspeth:

----*At the end of [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/homesick-2016-08-29 Homesick]], the Gatewatch has been informed by Dovin Baan of Chandra's less-than-legitimate past, and the incident that cost her her family. Dovin tries to justify himself by explaining how dangerous pyromancers are on Kaladesh. [[TrueCompanions Jace, Gideon and Nissa don't give a damn,]] and instead collectively decide to go after her, just to make sure she's safe. Because she may be impulsive and her powers may be destructive enough to take down ''[[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi]]'', but she is one of them and, as Gideon says, her heart is the size of the moon.
