'MNO,LargeCV': This is simple and different, in itself more likely to mean an improvement, when not artificial like author's Janus Kamil is recently alleged to be. On manageable board size(rare 8x11), Knights Kingside and Bishop-types Queenside would be okay to try once. Not the novelty and interesting pieces of excellent Quintessential Chess. Amazon only by promotion; freer castling might work better.
