Six plants can be used for breeding, get creative!
First of all a single plant can have 10 different varieties grafted on it.
X4 plants that is enough to breed and keep a plant or two in veg to keep all the clones alive. You can also make seeds with STS to avoid male or just graft male branches on to the same plants as all the female grafts, just watch and control the male flowering, not very hard.
Where there is a will there is a way.....
I would put a single male graft on with ten different female grafts and use that male to hit all those females. Graft the male higher then the female grafts. You could do four of those with the same or different males. Be sure the male is not way earlier or later then the female grafts on the same plant. Also you do not want the rootstock to be an early variety grafted with late varieties, it is better the other way around.
