Unfortunately, I can't liven up the discussion and provide new ideas - this week turned out to be hellishly busy to me.  Fritz's move looks like a decent proposal, however there's a question: what do you think about UT's 20b: dd7s hg6e hh6w Rh5n?

This looks like it would lead to giving up a camel hostage.  21w: Eb5s ha5w Dd2w Me3w.  I expect the a3 horse and a4 dog to go to the c6 area where the horse will dominate. A swarm attack on f6 will follow.  So I don't favor this over 20b: mb3n rc3e mb4w mc4s.

A bit of analysis increases my interest in 20b mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4s.  

 
I like this move too.  It's the best of the options I tried.

TheMob selects mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4s by a convincing majority.  We were very indecisive about the second place move, but do we really care?

Looks like the WC has got our attention.

Yeah, being the event reporter for the World Championship is definitely going to keep me busy.  Since it was a landslide, I was tempted not to record the voting here, but then I was too stuck in my ways to change my habits:
 
    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .    .   1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
1. mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4s (r->b3, m->c3)  .    .    -  8  8  7  9  9  9  9
2. hg6e hh6w Rh5n dd7s (pull R, d->d6) .    .    1  -  2  3  4  4  6  6
3. mb3n rc3w mb4e dd7s (r->b3, m->c4, d->d6).    1  3  -  2  4  4  5  6
4. dd7s dd6s dd5s rg8s (d->d4, r->g7)  .    .    1  2  3  -  3  4  5  5
5. mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4n (r->b3, m->c5)  .    .    0  1  1  2  -  3  4  4
6. mb3n rc3w mb4e mc4e (r->b3, m->d4)  .    .    0  1  1  1  2  -  3  3
7. Me3e ed3e rc3e dd7s (push M, r->d3, d->d6)    0  0  1  1  2  3  -  6
8. Me3e ed3e rc3e cc7w (push M, r->d3, c->b7)    0  0  0  1  2  3  0  -
