Spy stack Mnemonica based Method YTX-345

I am primarily an Aronson Stack user and have developed several spy stack methods and one explicitly for the Aronson strings, however as a challenge I wanted to see if this could be done based on strings from a Tamariz Mnemonica stack.

I tried many, many varients to see if I could get a decent octo suit color pattern from Mnemonica based on six card strings, based on position one, two, three of six card strings, based on positions 2, 4, 5 etc, etc all to no avail because too many duplicate suit color patterns with only three cards (in order to use octo needed to keep it to three cards for the suit color pattern).

Therefore I started looking at five card strings within Mnemonica had some better luck and finally found that using a five-card string and adding the spy card in front and then using positions three, four, five within that group of six cards worked exceedingly well with Mnemonica.

There was one group that was a duplicate octo pattern but by switching the position of the four of spades and the seven of hearts that eliminated the duplicate and filled in the missing octo number 7! Yeah! That is the only rule breaker in this scheme that I'm calling Method YTX-345.

Effect:
Spectator cuts the deck multiple times then deals a card to six spectators. Magician points to three of the spectators and says "raise your hand if you have a red suit". From 20 ft away without the use of a big cheat sheet and without having to memorize a whole new stack and without marked cards the magician names the six cards.

See the above link in secret sessions on how to do this.
