This is exactly what I’d do speedsolved:

(z2 y)
M f U r
r U' r2 F2 r U2 L' U L
R U R
u' R' U R
u' U2 l' U' L' U' L' U L U l*
F' r U R' U' r' F R
R2 F R U R U' R' F' R U2 R' U2 R u2

*useful alg most people don’t know, the not-mirrored version is r U R U R U' R' U' r'

The double insertion on P3+P4 is handy to know.

Anti-PLL is only 22 algs but with WV it makes dot cases a breeze.
