Industry standards call for a mud bed over a wooden subfloor to be WAY thicker than you want! Most call for at least 2”, but many get away with less.

A carbide blade designed for removal of stuff could be set to the right depth to go through the SLC and almost through the subflooring, and then you pry it up in chunks. Those blades will cut through screws and nails, and SLC easily...wear a good dust mask, eye protection, and gloves.
