I recommend using the rendered entity with the display suite that allows adding new view modes. You can add a featured and promoted view mode.
You can have a view listing all the promoted content using  promoted view mode. All content types used can  have their own layout of  the promoted view mode.

Using show Rendered entity view your lists can have different layouts for multiple content types with, which can’t be done with achieve fields.
