Depending on what your local stores have, id suggest Next Destinies or Noble Victories. Most of mine dont have those anymore, and if yours dont then just go with Dark Explorers or any of the newer ones. The last few sets have been pretty good. I believe EX cards(and full arts) have been around for the entirety of the black and white series. Before that there were primes and lv Xs, and before that there were ex's.

EX cards have been around since the release of Black and White: Next Destinies, while ex cards existed from 2003 to 2007 (note the difference in formatting between the two). Gold star cards were published between 2004 and 2007.

Just go to Bulbapedia to see what sets contain cards that interest you, because it's really down to personal preference unless you are looking to make money, in which case you are in the wrong hobby.
