I drew a quick diagram:
This is an Advanced Linear Game, so we need a row for the component names and a row for hand/machine.

X must be 4, with M, H, and H before it, in some order. So far, we don't know that order.

The next rule requires T to be first, or T at least not to be after any hand components. Because two H are before X, T will have to be no later than second. The next rule forces T to be after W, so we now know that T is second and W is first. This further tells us, because T cannot be after an H, that the first position is M, and the other two H.

The next rule is a straightforward sequencing rule, and we get Not Laws on the edges because of it.

The last rule is straightforward also.

V is a random, and I think the diagram is done. Let me know if you have any questions!
