Vanilla, simply because you should not buy the expansion before you've ever played the game, lest you dislike it.

They play very differently, and Egypt adds to the base game mechanics, and in some cases restricts them more.

I would recommend playing the base first a few times. But if you're an advanced gamer, it would probably not be a big deal to play Egypt first.

I personally like a mixture of the two decks, over playing either on it's own.
