recon coming, 6 cross colours, >6 solutions

1 red because of the obvious and easy x cross but if you look further you will notice a nice pseudo pair during f2l
x2 z
R2' F U' R U' R U R' D L2 U' L' U' L' U L U' L' U' L D2//xxx cross
U2 M' U' R U' r' U2 r U' r'//easy zbls
U R' U' R2 D R' U' R D' R2' U2 R U'//zbll

2 blue is also not bad and the flow is excellent for this solution
x y2
R2' F d L' F' L'//cross
d' U' R' U R2 U' R'//f2l 1
d R' U R//f2l 2
d U R' U R U' R' U R//f2l 3
y' R U2' R2' U' R2 U' R'//f2l 4
U' L' U2 L U L' U (L R) U2 R' U' R U' R'//zbll

3 orange x cross is quite easy to spot and it is practical to plan 2nd or even 3rd pair in a solve
x z'
R' D' R F R U2' R' U L2' U2 L2' U1 L' u R U2 R' u2//xxx cross
U R' F R F' R U' R2' F R F' //zbls
U' R U R' U R U' R' U' R' F' R U2 R U2' R' F//zbll

4 easy to preserve the red white pair but
if you predict the stage after preserving you will realize you can easily build the xx cross and not mess up the pair
U' D L x' U R U2 R y R' L U' L' U R' U' R u'//xx cross
F' U F R U2 R' //f2l 3 + preserve some EO
U l U' l' U' l U l'//zbls
R' U2' R2 U2' R2' U' R2 U' R2' U R//easy 2gll

5 easy to spot the red green x cross but orange green is not so easy to spot in 15 seconds
y2
r2' F R2 D' R L U2 D R' U R D'F R' F' R D' U L U' L' D'//xxx cross
U2 r' U R U' R' U' r //ols
U' R' U2 R U2' R' F R U R' U' R' F' R2 U2//pll

6 Practical solution if i am white only
y2
r2' F R2 D' R L D2//x cross
L' U2 L2 U L2' U L//f2l 2
d' R U' R' U R U' R'//f2l 3
r' F r d R U' R'//zbls
R D R' U2 R D' R' U' R' U2 R U' R' U' R U

7 ok but not the best as other crosses are so much better
x'
r B' R U' y' F r U' r' R2 D'//x cross
L U' L' d' U' R' U' R//f2l 2
U2 R U' R' d R' U' R//f2l 3
U R' D' r U r' D R2 U R'//f2l 4
U R' D' R U R' D R2 U R' U2' R U R'//zbll
