There's two other ways to eliminate the a-file dead zone without adding a file: I. switching one of the angels with one of the pawns that stands on one of the white squares. and mirror the switch on the other side. This will result in doubled pawn in one column, but that could lead to some interesting tactics, or you can change the back pawn into a man/minion that moves as a non-royal king. -or- II. alter the angel/devil moves by adding noncapturing forward ferz (mfF in Betza notation) to both pieces. which adds interesting tactical color to the game, as the players try to block the opponent's angel/devil from changing quarters. Also the forward ferz will suggest the wings, which is thematic.
