    Thanks riffz, reThinking the Cube and Lemon for the suggested algs.

    I'm going to choose this, it's the fastest and most intuitive approach for me.

    that is elegant! your buffer is different than mine [C v. A] nice.

    Noted: fearless cube rotations to get better algs, with no sign of the seasickness that would be expected from trying to keep track of a blindfold buffer that is hoping around like a flea on a hot skillet. So it baffles me more than a blown transmission on a 1970 Maytag, that you avoided the rather obvious shortcut (R2 E2 R2 E2), and wasted a lot of time by 3-cycle shooting this permutation.

    Is there something about your method that makes it hard to take advantage of easy 2x2-cycles?

    As someone who is actually fast at BLD, and has gotten cases like this in solves, I would say that the extra time to think about the different solution makes the solve slower. It's the same reason why I would not do an R2 premove to solve a 1x2x2 block in a BLD solve: it complicates memo and execution and just slows down the automatic solving process. However, that's not to say that just simply z'U2M2U2M2z, or a H/Z perm would not be something I would do. Doing that and then doing edge flips is a hassle.
    i don't cube any more

    This is what I would do


    R2 E2 R2 E2

    U S U' B2 U S' U' B2

    U' M' B2 M B2 M' B M B2 M' B2 M B' U

    POOP:
    EO
    [L': ((M' U)3 (M' U'))2]
    [x2 R': r U R' U' r' U2 R U R U' R2' U2' R]
    EP
    [z': [M2, U2]]
    [M, U2]
    Overall, I think | Skewb
    Having sigs allow three lines | 3x3: ~13
    Isn't a huge deal. | Skewb: ~7

    Using OP because bldnub:

    Jb [l:Jb] [l2:Jb] [l':Ja] [L':T] [dL':T] [d'L:T] [d'L':T] [d2L':T] [d2L:T]

    I just realised I didn't OP the POOP.
    It was moar optimal permutation.
    Oops.
