Newbie giving App-o-Rama a try

Hello All,
So i have been on this forum for a long time. I have recently started reading up about churning. I knew about it but decided against it as i was about to buy a house. Now that i have a mortgage and my score has finally gone back up to 800+ i have decided to finally start this process.

Currently i have the American Express SPG card. I hit the min and received the 50k points. My wife and i used it on hotel stays for 10 nights in Paris, Madrid and Barca recently. Now we want to start planning for our next trip. We would rather try to fly Business class internationally. So i want to apply and get cards that focus mainly on International travel (Europe and Asia).

The cards i am thinking of applying for both of us -
Citi AA card - 30K Pts (1k Min)
Ink Chase - 50k Pts (5k min)

I was thinking of applying for 2 more CC in this round - Any ideas?
Also, how should i spread the applications with regards to Card issuers?

I dont want to overdo it. Was thinking of churning twice a year. Your help would be greatly appreciated. I want to cover all basis before jumping into this.

Thank you
