Is there one more card I should consider???

Realistically is there one more elite credit card I should get?  I have been on a pretty good run since Thanksgiving; I have opened the following cards:

 

11/26/12 - BCP opened at $10,000 now at $25,000 with 3XCLI

 

11/28/12 - AMEX PRG

 

2/15/13 - AMEX TU $2,000 (still ticks me off it is so low, but came two weeks after BCP CLI)

 

                All AMEX cards backdated to 1991

 

2/26/13 -Chase Sapphire Preferred $12,000

 

5/1/12 - Chase Freedom CLI from $500.00 to $10,000 CLI happened after opening CSP

 

2/26/13 - Citi Bank Thank You Preferred $10,500

 

2/27/13 - Pen Fed Platinum Rewards Visa $12,000

 

1/15/13 - Capital One CLI from $500 to $5,000 X 2

 

Bank of America, Discover, and a few others are chasing after me hard but I’m just not sure if it’s necessary.  We plan on purchasing a new home over the summer (assuming we can sell ours) and I just want my file to be a worthy as possible.  Scores are around 730 and income is $100,000+

AMEX BCP $26,600 CSP $12,000 Pen Fed Plat Rewards $12,000 Citi Thank You Preferred $10,500 Chase Freedom $10,000
Delta CU $10,000 Cap 1 X 2 $7,500 AMEX TE $2,000
HSN $1,700 Kohls $1,000 BBRZ $700

Starting Score: EQ-592 TU-606
Current Score: EQ-728 TU-730
Goal Score: 725

I would say the Amex Unicorn, but you probably wouldn't qualify.

If there's nothing you really want, I'd just sit on what you have.  That's a nice lineup--no point in apping for apping's sake.
