I suppose since this is meant to be part of a set, with all three sharing basically similar skills, I suppose I can probably just copy and paste my review to suit them.

Honestly, Upclutch, Upstream and Melem all hurt me with every fiber of my being. All three of them have to be at max copies just to be able to hit them consistently from the top seven cards, the overall reward isn’t even very good being just another weak attack if you’re lucky, none of them can be comfortably made to fit in any GC deck that is actually GOOD (Chronofang and Chronojet) without cutting cards that are relevant to both, and they don’t play into GC’s winning image at all, which is to G4 Superior Ride your way to the top.

This is one of those cheap builds you give to a younger sibling so they don’t feel left out. Honestly, you have way better choices.
