I've created a method that allows you to solve last slot + last layer in just 513 algorithms (providing EO is solved), despite there being tens of thousands of possible cases (hundreds of thousands when EO isn't solved!). This is possible by using 2 algorithms at a time, while only needing a single look.

The magic of this method is what I call MLS (Magic Last Slot, Miranda Last Slot, take your pick).

Let's look at this setup: L' F2 D' F2 U F2 D' L2 D2 F2 R U' L R' U2 R U R' U'

MLS solves the F2L pair without messing anything up on the last layer. It essentially swaps the pieces in the F2L slot with the proper F2L pieces. It has 20 algorithms.

Now, back to the setup. What would happen if we swap UFR with DFR, and FR with UB? Well, we would be left with a Sune ZBLL case. I know this because of looking at UBR, UBL, and UFL. We don't need to figure out the orientation of the UFR corner to know that it's Sune. Now we just need to know exactly which Sune case it is. Judging by those same three corners, it's a diagonal swap COLL, and judging by the last layer edges it's the 54th Sune case.

So, all we have to do is apply the MLS algorithm and then go right into the ZBLL algorithm with no pause.

The MLS algorithm for this F2L case is currently this: U2 R U R B2 L2 D L D' L B2 R2 U2

(Please keep in mind that this is the algorithm that needs the most work, other F2L cases have much better ones.)

The algorithm for Sune 54 is this: L' U2 R U' L U' R' U L' U L U2 R U2 R' U'

The AUF does need a second look (hence the U' at the end), but if you know how to predict AUF in ZBLL then it isn't a problem at all.

There is a slight problem that is raised with MLS, unfortunately: when one or both of the F2L pieces are in the slot, it isn't possible to solve it without messing up something on the U-layer. To address this issue, I simply made these rules for the MLS algorithms:

- When the F2L corner is correctly permuted, UFR and UBR will swap places.

- If that F2L corner is incorrectly oriented, whichever corner is in the UFR position will have its orientation changed to counter it (for example if DFR is twisted clockwise, UFR will be shifted counterclockwise).

- If the F2L edge is correctly permuted and the F2L corner is
