For some time i was playing nomads, lately mainly corregidor, and i love the way of toolboxy units working together, and generally dicking the enemy with hacking, glueguns and the sort, but as the big S5 guys started coming out for them, i realised, i have to try an army with more HI, especially HI links. I know i could do brigadas, but i always wanted an entirely different second faction, so i turned to MAF. My priorities were, as much HI as i can get, preferably at least one s5, and as they tend to be expensive, and as it is the hype in season 9, it was obvious it'd make sense to aim for 10 order lists, which would make it a bit of a smaller investment than a whole collection.
And i know YuJing or PanO can do this infinitely better, i just love morats, the aesthetics and their background so my question is, how do i hamstring myself less? lets assume my group doesnt like much tailoring, so we bring 2-3 lists to play, and the randomly choose a mission.
first list, basically a full link of suryats, but not much more, kornak i like cuz of strategos and the cc threat he represents (plus BS14). idea is to let the dat and krakot advance and disrupt the enemy as much as they can, coordinate the solo dudes into positions and suppress, let the choochoo do most of the lifting, and if its that kind of mission, in the end the remaining specialists try to grab whats left. its obviously very susceptible to hacking, but i play mainly vs PanO and ariadny, here and then aleph, so that might be a problem, so i can switch 2 of the LI guys for a vanguard hacker or BIT and a remote (and downgrade the soggy to FB, cuz of SWC)

Now this other one is where im unsure wheter its completely garbage, or is it that much fun as i imagine it being. I'd link the vulcan and combi surys in a duo to advance and take up positions, eventually suppressing the combi, and make the threesome haris with kornak act as a little can-do-it-all link as main offensive piece, along with the soggy, who might just end up as a roadblock in supp. the vanguard link would be an aro bot with the ML and ofc fairy dust if needed. vs Ariadna and such id swap the hacker and ikadron for another paramedic and perhaps a 4th link team member for ssl6 or a dat for smoke, alternatively a krakot. sooo is a 3-4 man core link a stupid idea, sacrificing the juicy +3 for more flexibility in links?

as a final note, its a small group of people i am playing with, and not a very competitive one (yet ) , so i dont expect my lists to be hypercompetitive, i'd just like hear your opinion, say in case its glaringly stupid or unplayable.
