Depends on your credit. What you've posted generally looks good but you'll want to consider your current AAoA and the impact of adding 5-6 new accounts.

We'd need to know where you're spending money the most if you want "good" suggestions based on rewards. If you have other criteria that matter you really need to disclose them to us as well. The list above seems to lack focus and is all over the place but it could just be that the OP hasn't sufficiently explained the strategy behind the selections.

Definitely consider the CSP and how it suits you in the long run. That is, unless you intend to rely on churning for sign up bonuses as a strategy.
