Moriison’s NXM and Whedon’s AXM are must read I guess…
Emma Frost 18-issue solo series was really great, I think it's totally underrated perhaps because it's irrelevant with the X-Men or HFC.
And there are some recommendation lists, I hope they are helpful for you. : )

I did add The New X-Men and Astonishing X-Men issues you mentioned though. Yeah, no current issues because I wouldn't want to recommend anything Emma is used poorly in. Anyways, sorry you didn't like the list. It was hard to choose from hundreds of issues and I did have to narrow it down to a few.
But please know THE FIRESTAR ISSUE IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE EMMA KILLS A HORSE...her most ultimate evil act. 'nuff said
