Depens on what is more important to you...
A: Feeling - i have an argonian warden named wandering-through-swamp which feels really good to play and strife through the wildlands, commanding animals and nature's magic.
B: Attributes: - i would suggest an orc or imperial char, because a warden can tank good with shield/onehand + heavy armor, and imperials/orc support high lifepoints (orc/imperial) and also the exp gained in heavy armor(orc) or onehanded-shield(imperial).
C: a bit of both - Choose Nord, because Nord can also tank good and have dmg-reduction, more life and life-reg and using frost magic too can give you a good feeling combined with good tankiness.
As a Damage oriented char i dont know which one i would choose. in this case, Altmer, Bosmer and Dunmer would be a viable choice too, so therer are many ways and races which can be feel good and have good stats, depending on what you prefer.
Hope, i could help,
