Rather interesting annihilation strategy in all four phases (set, 2 tries and solution), with consequent use of annihilation.

Minus from the point of view of changes: the checkmate 2.Sxd2 (Sd2→g1)# is not properly transferred as it follows both 1…dxc2 (Pc2→c7) and 1…dxe2 (Pe2→e7) in both phases with keys capturing on the c-file. Although always only one of defences defends against relevant threat in respective phases, the other unfortunately besides threat allows also the mate Sxd2 (Sd2→g1)#. (For proper mates transference see e.g. this #2 by Mikhail Marandyuk: )
