Beginner BLD scrambles

I'm just learning BLD, and I thought it might be helpful for me and other people if there was a collection of scrambles that didn't include cycle breaks, parity, twisted corners or flipped edges. Obviously a method and buffer position would have to be specified, but seeing as I think this is most use for beginners, and most beginners will be using Old Pochmann, or OP/M2, with UR/DF as an edge buffer and UBL as a corner buffer, it should be feasible.

So if anyone gets a scramble without these more difficult features when solved with OP or OP/M2, it'd be great if you post it here so that people just getting into BLD have a repository of scrambles to start with - just specify which edge method it's for. There's a few scrambles like this scattered around but nowhere that I could find that had a collection of them (if there is a collection somewhere, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction). I realise it might be hard to get sufficient support for this to work but if it does then I think it'll be a really good resource.

The M2 buffer will most probably not be UR, my opinion is that you could get scrambles without twisted corners or flipped edges, as they're really annoying for beginners (was for me atleast) If you practice without cycle breaks or parity, it will be harder to get used to it later.

You could search for some of the faster videos on YouTube and look at the scrambles in the descriptions. More often than not they will be easy/lucky scrambles :)

Cheers for the tip. Just tried that scramble as my first full attempt, but it didn't go very well - only had 4 pieces right at the end, and one of them was already solved at the start. Oh well, the only way is up!

As a beginner you should be looking for scrambles that DO have these things so that you can practice them. Then they won't be such a burden. I never think to myself, oh man I have a flipped edge! I'm just like cool, lets flip this thang its easy. I think it would be hard to find definite scrambles for this because not everyone uses the same solving orientation.
