For your very first (and only) plane …

The answer is a standard (#5) jack.
There’s a reason it’s been nicknamed the “jack” plane—it’s the “Jack-of-all-Trades”

Not sure where your original list came from, but this plane should top it. It can be used for roughing, scrubbing, smoothing and, within reason, jointing.

The LA Jack, while a fine tool, is a specialized plane—one you can add to your arsenal at a later date.
