Which sets are best for ARDA?

Do you guys usually combine Wizards + Dragons for ARDA? Or just Wizards?

Minions and Lidless Eye are usually not included right?

Well, first, hero ARDA and minion ARDA require separate ARDA decks -- it doesn't make much sense to use Lidless Eye in a hero ARDA build (though the hazards may overlap to some extent)! It really depends on what you are looking to get out of your ARDA games, and also on the specific decks of ARDA. I would generally argue for including all hero MP resources that you have access to for the MP deck, in addition to all hero characters and hero sites for those respective decks.

For the main deck, assuming hero ARDA, sticking with just The Wizards makes for a good base -- just put in those cards you like (and that will be fun to play!) and leave out the other stuff. From there, you can sprinkle in non-MP resources and hazards from Dragons and Dark Minions as you like. For example, the game is more lively with some Ahunt dragons roaming around, and there are many useful/interesting cards like Flatter a Foe or Many Foes He Fought from Dragons or More Alert than Most or No Waiting to Wonder from Dark Minions. I wouldn't bother with agents and their associated cards, though -- really too complicated for ARDA, imo.
