From another thread, I see the OP had a BCE not long ago as well as a BofA card of some sort and a Chase Slate.
OP, if you still have those and like simplicity, I'd just stick with the Amex BCE plus the Chase Slate (if you still have it) as a backup. Maybe try to change the Slate into a Freedom?
If you want to play the sign-up bonus game, there are many, many cards you can try. Most of those cards have fees after the first year. You can always cancel them before the AF becomes due, but it would be the opposite of a simple '1 card for everything' strategy.
Given that you already have a BCE, I don't see that it would make much sense to try to get more cards to maximize your rewards until your spending increases.
Edit: If you really want to maximize your rewards, even at the cost of complexity, you could get a Sallie Mae MC for gas and groceries and an Arrival for the travel expenses. Maybe an Amex EveryDay card and convert MR points into airline loyalty programs?
