Great concept. Is it possible to avoid somewhat thematic dual in the third try?

Thanks for your comment. For me, the thematic of the tries lies in the pointed refutations.
I think the variants are secondary here.
But if the dual bothers you:
bMOa3 (instead of wRa3) and wPb2 (instead of bPb2)…

For me this is the necessary change making the problem much more unified.

Technical comment
Mate LExg6→f6# requires e6 blocked to avoid Bxe5→e6, but if d6 is also blocked Blak can play Kxc3→b4.
Mate MOxg6→e6# requires d6 blocked to avoid Rd7-d5, but if there is Vao on c6 Blak can play MOxc6→d5.
Mate Rxg6→d6# does not have specific requirements, but if there is Mao on b6 it will defend on d5, and if both b6 and c6 are blocked Black can play Kc5.
Mate MAxg6→c6# is only possible after the line is fully opened.

Not sure if the after key play is Loshinski-magnet. But an excellent idea nevertheless

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
