I am currently using my Amex ED as my default to build up MR (I'm thinking I'll convert to Avios for an international flight on British Airways, but I'll be doing more in-depth reaearch when that time gets closer), but I completely agree with Brad Bishop about Amex vs. Discover. I love everything about Discover. Their website and app is much better than Amex's in my opinion, and you have to have Amex's highest tiered (read: most expensive) cards in order to get decent customer service. Whenever I do cash out in MR, I may go back to giving Discover the vast majority of my spending.
If the Discover it Miles card was available at the time and if I knew Amex would be axing backdating, I may have favored it over the Amex ED. Discover still gets plenty of spending from me, however, between the 5% category this quarter and a few regular merchants/bills that don't accept Amex.
