Having the Edge switches as Client eases the life on you, as you would have to add, edit or remove the VLANs on the server switch only, and it will advertise this info to all the other switches, with no need to do this configuration on each of the switches as compared to transparent mode, where each switch needs to be configured separately.
When dealing with transparent mode you'll have to add VLAN info on all the switches, and from the advantages of using transparent mode on all switches is that it prevents switches from ever listening to other switch VTP updates and erroneously deleting their VLAN configuration databases, plus the switch must be in VTP transparent mode when you create extended-range VLANs. (VLAN IDs 1006-4094), and the only drawback is that you'll need to configure VLAN info separately on each switch.
