before my seeing comments: My solution [submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to mate with queen [or rook] after some black move, white's rafour starts

The mates from the set on 1.. c4, d6 2. Qb7#, Rd4# are changed in the solution to 2. Ra5#, Qe4#. Published in Hlas ľudu (79v) 1969-08-22. Probably intended as a mutate without bPa2 which was later added to stop the cook 1. Bxh8. However now wBh7 makes little sense as on 1.. a1X no mate is provided in the set, so the problem is no longer a mutate.
