The Comment You're Replying To

I like a Lion-like piece that moves like a man and jumps to any square two squares away. This piece delivers mate by itself, needing no help from its own king. It gradually forces the enemy king to an edge square, and mates from the 'opposition' square or on either of the 2 sqs a knight's move away from the king adjoining the opposition square. The same mate from the same 3 squares can be forced by the Amazon. Mate can be forced by the R+B+Man in exactly the same way as the 2 pieces above. However, the R+B+Man can deliver mate only from the opposition square, that is R+B+Man on 'e6' mating a king on 'e8'.
