a Pokedex or somewhere near you.
Algs are usually reserved for last slot because they don't disturb other slots and make lookahead more difficult. Multislotting and keyhole aren't super intuitive either not a lot of people can come up with those.
wait whaaaa I thought the more pieces solved = better lookahead, also lookahead on LS is not hard and I'm pretty sure many people will agree with me here.

I'll second that. More pieces solves = less blind spots (as long as you insert into the back frequently) = easier lookahead. Typically during LS I can look ahead to the edges of OLL almost instantly.

I can always lookahead to my EO and often know what OLL shape I'm going to get(although I don't practice that much since I don't know OLL) during LS. Looking at alg sheets, my solutions are almost always just as good(for LS)
