For starters nix the Mtn Twin. It's actually full directional.
For camrock in your prefered style look into the YES Greats.
The Rice and TRS arent bad boards, but know that if your Salomon had carbon these Libs wont really feel "lively" to you. The whole general ride character of Mervins in my experience is best described as snowboarding on cruise control. Not a ton of energy so you'll never get bucked, a rocker that's easy to ride, and magne means you don't have to pay attention to your edges. Put all that into one board and snowboarding is pretty mind-off. I've never really been able to load their tips and even with Magne they wash just a tad when I try and snap out of a euro-carve. It may be something that doesnt bother you or you may even like the way they ride, just a heads up.
I would take a good look at the Flow Rush as long as you don't really care about sliding metal or boxes in the park (the ABT is fine everywhere else, but it's slow on jibs). It has a ton of snap, a mellower version of rocker similar to C2, and the 5 radial sidecut is super dialed and grippy when you need it.
You might also look into the K2 Happy Hour. Soft torsionally but strong tip to tail means its easy to drive and a blast in powder. Drives under foot well.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
